Seasonality Note

While Great Pines does book rooms 365 days a year please note that our restaurant and some of our amenities are not available year round.  In April-May and October-November we are in shoulder season. The restaurant and amenities will close and then re-open on Memorial Day Weekend and around Christmas (respective to the seasons). During these months we invite you to come and visit and take advantage of our discounted room rates and the solitude of the area!  But kindly ask that you do your research for restaurants and activities in advance as these times of years are quieter and the quality of your stay is important to us!
