POLICIES for His Place Resort - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
We want you to feel relaxed and worry-free when you make a
reservation with us. Times change, and we understand that your life is
more hectic than ever and sometimes you need flexibility...
We asked you what a good, easy to
understand cancellation policy should be, and we listened!
So, effective since summer 2013, we continue to offer a very forgiving, if
not the most lenient, cancellation policy of any of our competition.
We wish we could do away with it completely, but please understand
that we rely almost entirely on reservations made in advance. Once we
take your reservation, your lodging, guides, and boat rentals are no
longer available, and we turn away all other requests. We also have to
pay guides whether you fish or not. Further, we don't overbook like hotels to cover such occurrences.
This policy protects you, our guides, and still allows us to operate
our business. Our policies apply to all reservations in the case of
inclement weather or varying river conditions.
DEPOSITS AND CANCELLATION FEES
- A credit card deposit is required at time of booking, either
- Deposits are as follows:
- Lodging deposit - 1st night + tax for each room reserved

- Campsites - $0 deposit required
- Deposits will be returned with 15 days or more notice of

(Multiple rooms or Guide Trips require 22 days notice.) We refund
deposits by company check only, which will be postmarked within 1 week of
- No Shows or cancellations, changes and postponements occurring less
than 15 days forfeit all deposits (22 days for multiple rooms or guide
- Early departures pay for only 1 more night of lodging.
(Example: Reserve 5 nights, stay only 2, pay for 3)
Early departures will forfeit all guide trip deposits.
- Downgrades to smaller units are allowed, but forfeit 1st night
lodging deposit on larger room if notice is given less than 15 days
(or 22 days for multiple rooms).
In order for us to maintain such a liberal cancellation policy, we
must work together. Please, if you know you're not going to
make it, notify us as soon as possible. If you
have any questions, please ask.
