POLICIES

Foolhardy Hill is a self service base camp (think Airbnb outside) that . Management is only a quick text or phone call away and staff can be onsite within 30 minutes. While we do clean and disinfect units in-between each stay, guests are expected to leave the cabins and all property amenities in clean condition--sweep up behind your party and make sure to take all personal trash and belongings with you (we provide a dumpster right at the parking area). A team player mentality is key with this interactive lodging experience.
