While the lake is still frozen and the ice fishermen are still out in front of Chelka Lodge, we have finally begun to get some snow melt and we can now begin our spring clean-up. To get our property ready for our guests it takes several weeks of hard work. Hoping for continuing good weather we have numerous outdoor and indoor painting projects underway.
We began taking reservations for the 2009 season back on January 3 and we anticipate this year to be a relatively normal year, even given the state of the economy. A normal year at Chelka Lodge during the summer months does mean that we will run at close to 100% occupancy so please do not delay in making your reservationsÂ to ensure that you are not disappointed.
The 1 Bedroom Carriage House, which was completely renovated in 2008 and is one of our most popular units, does currently have availability. Normally it is sold out immediately but several of our regulars have had to cancel their plans for 2009 so the unit is currently available for most of August.
