Three Easy Recipes for Your Getaway

Chopping ingredients

We believe your Getaway should be about relaxing, not about stressing over meal planning. That’s why we’ve put together three easy recipes you can create in our cabins.

Don’t worry about bringing cooking tools. Our cabins are stocked with everything you might need, including a pot, pan, cutting board, and knives. You just need to bring the ingredients.

If this sounds like a hassle, then bring nothing at all. In the spirit of giving you everything you need and nothing you don’t, our cabins come with several provisions for purchase, including pasta, sauce, jerky, and more.
