All of our lodges are immersed in a protected preserve that abounds in wildlife, including mammals and insects. Our lodges are scrupulously clean and fully modern, and even though all insects are removed from the lodge by our housekeeping staff prior to your arrival, it is possible, even likely, that some will re-enter. It is not uncommon in our lodges to encounter harmless animals that are relatively rare in the city but very common here. Wildlife visitors can include spiders, wasps, ladybugs, wood roaches, and native (and pretty darn cute) white-footed mice. If such visitors would cause you duress, we recommend that you seek a more urban setting for your retreat.
