Our Cabins are Clean! & Nice! & Private! & Fun! And at a Reasonable Price! Charming plus Romantic for couples! You could pay much more to stay in town at a B&B but it would not be cleaner or nicer, just some snob appeal fancier furniture (ours is simple but comfortable).
Having a Fire – Please be aware that you are accepting the responsibility and liability for any and all damages caused by fire use here (see fire use info below). All persons wishing to have a fire must be equipped to deal with starting and maintaining a camp fire. Our firewood, in most cases comes in large split pieces, so an axe or hatchet is usually required but is not available or provided by us.
FIRES a warning (please read this if you want a fire or to grill) Why – Because we have been burned
On an Easter Sunday several years ago two negligent guests started a wildfire here on our property by careless charcoal grill use. It burned over 10 acres out of control threatening life and home, a sizable portion of what burned was our neighbors land.
That fire has cost us. We lost much more than just a considerable sum of money. It has been extremely costly in many ways and will take a long time for recovery.
Some people feel a campfire or charcoal grilling is their right. We see it as a privilege and one that comes with responsibility. There is absolutely no need for a large tacky dangerous fire and in fact it is wasteful and piggish. Small fires are smarter and easier on surrounding resources and have less potential danger. We propose there is no real excuse to create a big damn fire.
We want you (our valued Guest) to understand we are very serious about fire use here in all forms. We need for you to know that if you wish to enjoy this privilege, we expect you to be responsible with it. This means obtaining the permission and following the rules of fire and charcoal use (available in office during office hours).
If what we’re asking about fire use on our property is something you consider not worthy of respect or adherence, well we strongly suggest not staying here. Please go someplace else, with lower standards and fire use ethics. You may be assured we would insist you leave if we discover this to be the case.
Our only wish is for all of our guests to relax and enjoy themselves here on our property. With an understanding, that like everything else in life there are limitations, especially when actions threaten lives and property. Thank you sincerely for your cooperation. The owners of Okefenokee Pastimes.
