What are your reservations policies?

Lot Changes
We are a lot ownership resort which means that, in the unlikely event the owner of the rental lot you selected sells or removes the property from the rental pool, you will be notified as soon as possible to discuss a suitable replacement lot.

Deposits and Balance Due
All reservations made 10 days or more prior to arrival require a 50% deposit to hold chosen dates with the balance due 10 days prior to arrival.  Reservations made within 10 days of arrival will be charged in full for the entire reservation.

Motor Home Classification, Size and Age
Hearthside Grove is a Class A motorcoach resort.  Our Owner's Association defines Class A in the traditional sense meaning motor homes and converted buses that have a flat front (not a truck, van or semi front end).  We understand the appeal of other types of coaches and trailers, but we don’t have a provision to host those units as either a guest or owner.  Additionally, Class A motorcoaches must be a minimum of 30 feet in length and be no older than 10 years of age.  Please email us at [email protected] if you have any questions.

Cancellation Policies
Cancellation of a reservation 10 days or more prior to arrival will result in a $50 processing fee.  Cancellations made less than 10 days before arrival will result in loss of 50% of the entire reservation cost (
including bungalow costs if this option was selected on your reservation).


Are site numbers guaranteed when renting a lot?

When renting a lot, are site numbers guaranteed?

We want you to have an amazing stay with us; please note that site numbers are not guaranteed. Some lots may be privately owned. You may be asked to move to another lot due to the unexpected arrival of the lot owner, the sale of the lot or for lot maintenance reasons. If your reservation must be moved, you will be moved to the next lot that is comparable to your original lot type requested if there is a lot available in that category. If a lot is not available in the same category as originally requested, you will be moved to the next lot type that is comparable.
