Advanced Reservations: If you wish to book more than sixty days in advance of the reservation, you must call the Cabin Coordinator at 703-242-0315 X 108 from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Please be aware that advanced reservations necessitate a three-night minimum stay and require advanced rates, at double the standard rates.   

Overcharge Glitch: If you reserve a cabin for more than two nights on the 60th day, the online booking system will charge the advanced rate for the extra nights. If this occurs, contact the Cabin Coordinator immediately for a refund or a void, if applicable. Bypass the overcharge in one of two ways: 1) book the first two nights of the reservation and immediately reply to the confirmation email with a request for the additional nights; 2) call the Cabins Desk volunteer at 703-242-0315 X 102 on weekdays from 11:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. but risk the chance of losing the reservation to another renter in the meantime.
