Towel Service

River Point Resort & Outfitting Co. is a “housekeeping resort.” “Housekeeping” means that you are renting a completely furnished accommodation with a kitchen and all the equipment needed for cooking. You provide your own food, personal toweling for bath and kitchen, and perform your own tidying of the accommodation. If desired you may reserve a “tidy” or “full”clean of the accommodation for an additional fee, as described below.
