This is your special group reservation deal, it allows us to manage our other group's requested dates and ensures that the retreat lodge and as many cabins as you need at Golden Bear Cottages Resort are reserved for next year's event:


  1. Free Night - To receive a free night, a guest in your group must book their cabin before leaving this year or prior to the booking deadline set by Golden Bear Cottages. The Free night can be used (with a minimum of 2 paid days) on either the day before the annual event or the day at the end of the event.
  2. Deposit - for next year's event must be a minimum of 25% or $100.00. A second 25% will be due 90 days from event departure date. The balance will be due 30 days prior to the arrival date of next year's event. This deposit guarantees your cabin dates, and there are no refunds, but another group member may take your cabin if there is a reason you cannot attend next year's event. We will provide an automatic free date change if event date changes.
  3. Security deposit will normally be added based on cabin and group size.
