We are considering staying there starting August 2, checking out on Sat the 5th of August. Will shuttle be available and restaurant be open during those times? Thanks!!
Yes there is a shuttle it takes an hour to get into centre of town. I am sure they will be open the time you want to go. I think September will be when the season finishes.
