How do we reserve  again for the next year?  

If you plan to return next year, you will have the first chance to reserve your cabin if you reserve it for the same week   when you check-out    and your stay is a   minimum of seven days    (unless we have notified you of other conditions).
When a cabin becomes available, guests who are here that same week will be given the first opportunity to reserve it, before it opens up to other guests.
Shorter stay reservations will be considered after September 1st.  A deposit of 35% is required to reserve your cabin.
