We are excited that your family is coming to stay at the lodge. We want you to have a wonderful time, with lots of fun and adventures. We also want you all to go home with lasting memories of your time together at the Lodge.
To ensure that your stay goes as smoothly as possible here are a few guidelines for your family to follow... if you have any questions or concerns please let us know.
BEDDING/LINENS: Are provided for all of the bedrooms. Please bring sleeping bags/blankets for the bunk room, roll aways, floor pads and coutches..
TOWELS: Kitchen towels, hand towels, and bath towels are provided.
SMOKING POLICY: No smoking in the Lodge.
ALCOHOL POLICY: Alcohol is allowed, however this is a family environment and we would expect the guest to act responsibly at all times. We reserve the right to ask any guest being disruptive to leave the premises.
FIREARMS: Please no firearm use on the Lodge property. Ask for recommendations where to go for target practice.
4-WHEELERS/DIRT BIKES/SNOWMACHINES/ETC: Please bring them to the Lodge. We ask that you do not ride them on Lodge property. There are awesome places to ride within minutes, please see the area map on this site.
PLEASE NO ANIMALS IN THE LODGE: Disregarding this will result in loss of your deposit, and any future use of the Lodge.
RV: We have no RV hookups at this time. You are welcome to park close to the lodge where there are outside plugs.
TENTS: If you have kids that want to set up tents make sure they are either in the ball field or behind the sports court... the automatic sprinklers in the yard come on in the night.
KITCHEN: Most of the things you would find in your kitchen at home... and some extras like two ovens/cook tops. Commercial refrigerator (double) and freezer should hold all of your perishables. There are so many things available... a more complete list is found on this website.
BBQ/CAMPFIRE: There are 2 BBQ grills available for outdoor cooking. The campfire has plenty of wood stockpiled.
WOODSTOVE: For our winter guests please use the wood provided.
Again we are looking forward to your families stay and would like to help make it as wonderful as possible. A more inclusive list of amenities is available on this website. Please feel free to call if you have further questions regarding your plans while you are at the Lodge.
When planning food have a committee that plans the menu, then 1-2 people who live close purchase all of the food and supplies. Make cooking assignments ahead of time for groups of 4-6 depending on your group size to be in charge of preparing the meal, and another group for clean up. It's fun to mix these groups up so they are a mix of aunts/uncles/siblings/cousins/etc. you get to spend some quality time working together in a small group and it's a great way to get to know each other better.
Try to plan meals that meat can be left out of easily. BBQ with lots of side dishes and salad that are meatless.
Always have a supply of p.b.j.'s aka peanut butter and jelly and Popsicles!
Paper products are awesome!
Plan activities that are flexible... and then try to go with the flow. If everyone is really having a great time at one activity, carry on as long as they want. Also it never hurts to plan down time for a little R&R.
Take along some kid movies for the little guys in the evening... when they get tired and cranky, it's hard for anyone to have a good time! Be flexible and take advantage of the time you have together!
If you are planning a day excursion (for example, at Three Peaks Lodge many groups take a day, pack lunches and go up to Yellowstone) find someplace local that will cater your evening meal or pick up a take'n'bake pizza ahead of time. In Rexburg, the BYUI has a great food service and they deliver!
Committees are a great way to organize your reunion activities ahead of time. Some suggestions for committee's would include age group activities for younger kids, middle aged kids, and teens. Having some of the kids these ages give input and be a part of the committees is a great idea.
