Note: Temporary housing does not come with the hands-on, catering to guests by retreat owner, Joanna Buell that vacation season renters receive. You’ve got to be able to pull your own weight here. It takes a hardy individual to handle a winter with lots of snow and below freezing temperatures. Power outages can be of a long duration which necessitates being prepared and knowing how to operate a generator. Guests will have to prepare ahead of a storm, having plenty of water, food that’s easy to prepare. Power outages do happen outside of snow storms so it’s always good to have some drinking water stored.
