    We are planning a trip to Port A in January for 8 weeks. We have 2 small dogs 11# and 23#. Are looking for an efficiency type accommodation with cooking capabilities(kitchenette). Have a friend who lives at Island Resort just up the road from you who says you have cabins available and she recommends your establishment. Was wondering what your long term rates would be. Do you have a hot tub?

    How old do you have to be to check in? I've hear 18 and I've heard 21.

    Minimum Check In Age is 18 with a matching ID and Credit Card. For Spring Break, if you are under the age of 25, there will be a deposit that is refundable when you check out.
