We want all our guests to have a fun visit at Brindley's but feel it inappropriate for any guest or group to conduct themselves in a disruptive way to other guests' right to enjoy the peace and tranquility of our north woods setting. Inappropriate behavior includes door slamming, playing loud music, or loud and boisterous voices. Quiet time is observed between 10:00 PM and 9:00 AM. Late-night fireside gatherings likely to create loud voices and loud laughter are permitted at the "Point," well away from guest cottages.

Brindley’s Deposit Policy

All guests have their same cabin starting the same day the following year guaranteed for 30 days from your arrival date. Within that 30 day period we will need 20% of your deposit to hold your reservation. The other 20%, totaling 40% is due before January 1st.

To confirm a reservation, we require a deposit of 40% down on all cabins.



If a guest cancels any reservation, their deposit is not refundable, unless, we are able to re-rent the lodging unit(s) for the entire period of the confirmed reservation. A $50 cancellation fee will be deducted from the refund if a refund is appropriate.

If a guest cancels a reservation in less than 30 days from their visit it will result in full payment of total reservation.
