Special Eclipse Lodge Reservation Policy

There is a 5 night minimum. The reason for the 5 night minimum is to insure the safety of our guests. We have been told to expect the roads to be choked with traffic and arriving a couple days early and waiting 2 days to depart will go a long way towards creating a safe driving experience arriving and departing. The state of Arkansas is encouraging this minimum.

All reservations require payment in full at time reservation is made.

We must receive a cancellation notice by September 1, 2023 to refund guests deposit – minus a cancellation fee that will be equal to two nights. Reservations made after September 1, 2023 will be subject to this policy.

Any cancellations after January 9, 2024 will be non-refundable.
