We take payment for this in person at $40/guest to reserve a bunk bed. 3 bed/2-night minimum to rent this space. The bunkhouse will not be available if there is a wedding at the barn, as the groomsmen use this space on wedding days. (There is no guarantee that this space will be available if a wedding books after your lodge reservation.)

The pool opens in mid-May and closes in mid-October each year. The pool patio furniture is uncovered in May with the opening of the pool and covered in October with the closing of the pool. The other patio and it's furniture is left uncovered year round. The pedal boat is on the same schedule as the pool. The pool is usually cleaned on Thursdays, unless the weather requires otherwise. Allow an hour after cleaning before getting in. They try to come during morning hours. Guests do not have the authority to tell them to leave and come another time. Please treat all our yard/maintenance workers with respect, as they are doing their job to maintain our property to the standards we have set.
We normally have the yard mowed Wednesday through Friday, day dependent on weather. Flowers are watered daily.
We have a large Great Dane/Great Pyrenees mix dog named Shy. She is very friendly, good with all ages, and used to having guests. She isn't very energetic and doesn't jump, but she is likely to lay near the action or lean on you if you are outside. We also have a cat named Sweetie that spends time inside and out. She is very social and tolerant for a cat, and also good with all ages.
We don't allow other pets on the property for various reasons. No exceptions.
There is not a washer/dryer, so please pack accordingly.
Recycling is not available in our area. There are 2 large trash cans on the lodge patio for bagged trash.

The lodge was originally built for our hunting guests (thus the rustic decor and taxidermy.) It's reserved October through December 20th every year for hunters. We may open some dates up depending on availability during the fall season.
For guided whitetail hunting, please search Baker Bucks online for info.
For information on our rustic wedding barn, please search The Lodge at Loma Linda online for info.
Guests have access to the lodge and outdoor spaces near the lodge. We have a wedding barn 1/4 mile away from the lodge. If there is a wedding that weekend, we ask that lodge guests do not go to the barn area of the property. We will try and inform guests if there is a wedding on the weekend they will be here. However, some weddings may book after the lodge has already been reserved.
Please do not open gates to any fields on the property. Guests are free to walk around the property as long as you don't have to open a gate to get there. Please don't enter the field that the horses are in, but you are welcome to interact with them over the fence. They are not available nor broke for riding. The high-fenced hunting preserve near the barn is off-limits and will be treated as trespassing should it be entered.
Общение с гостями
We live on the property next door to the lodge (the courtyard is shared by our house and the lodge). We can be there to answer questions usually within a few hours if we are home. If you want complete privacy, we don't go to spaces around the lodge except to water flowers, do yard work, and check the pool filters as needed. However, let us know if you plan to be gone during the day, so that we might enjoy the pool also!
