Cancellations are difficult to manage due to many circumstances involved with operating Charit Creek Lodge.  Keep in mind we are an off-grid back country lodge, completely removed from the basic luxuries such as power,  water and waste removal provided by local municipalities.  Due to National Park Service efforts to preserve the natural and cultural landscape of Big South Fork, we have limited access and opportunity to procure, deliver and remove the necessary goods to operate the lodge. 

Most importantly, we have a limited number of cabins.  Cancellations without proper notice prevent us from being able to rebook these cabins, severely reducing our available inventory.  Charit Creek Lodge is a special place and a one of a kind experience that requires unique policies to retain the level of amenities, service and delicious food that we provide.  Thank you for your support!


Vegetarian meals are available.  They are determined by what is on hand or in season.  To order a vegetarian meal (includes eggs), specify in the notes during the booking process.  Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate gluten , lactose free  or allergic specific meals.
