PLEASE BRING PERSONAL BEDDING, PILLOWS, BATH AND KITCHEN TOWELING
River Point is a housekeeping resort. “Housekeeping” means that you are renting a furnished accommodation with a kitchen and all the equipment needed for cooking and you provide your own food, do your own tidying of your accommodation, and bring your own bedding and toweling.
Specifically, guests will need to provide their own sheets, blankets, spreads or comforters, and pillows, in addition to their own toweling. Some guests also bring a bathmat or small rug for the bathroom. Mattress pads and defenders are provided on the beds. You might also consider the option of simply bringing sleep bags (bed roll) and pillows, in addition to your personal bath and kitchen toweling since a sleep bag takes up less space when traveling.
If you are flying you may opt to send rods and reels, bedding and toweling, and other items ahead of your arrival via UPS, FedEx, or Speedy Delivery.
River Point does not provide toweling. Thus, you will need to provide your own personal toweling for bath and kitchen or consider purchasing toweling when in the Ely area. Please feel free to contact us for more information on what arrangements you can make.
- Guest Laundromat available on-site with two new washers and two new dryers. Coin operated.
Please bring face masks.
