Summer at Kanuga

Faith, Family, Friendship


July-August, 2023

We are not yet taking reservations.

Summer at Kanuga is a multi-generations-long program that invites newcomers to experience Kanuga as well. This is truly a time to connect with each other, nature, and the Creator. A full program of scheduled activities with traditional “unplugged” events such as Bingo Night, Worship Opportunities, Pickle Ball Tournament, 5K and Fun Run, Trivia, Archery, Wood Carving, Painting, and more. Lake swimming and boating, as well as 20 miles of hiking trails make more a cooler way to spend summer. 

Kanuga’s health and safety guidelines will be updated as we approach the summer season.

CHECK-IN TIME: 4 p.m.*

*Please check in at the front desk at 4 p.m. before going to your accommodation.

Check-in: The credit card you provide the front desk staff at check-in will be used for on-site expenses during your stay. Guests must be 18+ to charge on-site expenses to lodging. We recommend purchasing a VISA gift card before you come, for your children under the age of 18 to use in the shop.

If you would like housekeeping during your stay, please complete the request form at the front desk.

Guests Visiting You on the Property: Please ask your guests, who do not plan to stay overnight, to visit the Front Desk upon arrival for information about activities and meals. 

Check-out: Please help us prepare for the next guest by placing your used towels in the bathtub or shower, taking out your trash, returning furniture to its original position, and emptying your cottage mini-fridge. We will strip the beds and take the refuse to our dumpsters. Remember that check-out is at 10 a.m. Thank you for helping keep our property safe and beautiful.

Housekeeping: Kanuga is not offering daily in-room housekeeping services. If you would like housekeeping services during your stay, please complete a request form at the front desk.

Kanuga Lake Inn – Please place soiled towels and linens outside of your room before 11:30 a.m. for daily fresh replacements.

Historic Cottages and Guest Houses – Please place soiled towels and bed linens outside on the steps closest to the service road by 11:30 a.m. so that our housekeepers are able to see that you need a pick-up.

Children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult at the buffet and should not be in the dining room without a supervising adult. In the interest of minimizing waste, please help us be good stewards of the bounty God provides by monitoring your family’s portions. At Kanuga, we endeavor to “eat what we take.”

You may join us in the dining room at any point within the noted timeframe. After you dine, the table may host another family during the same meal period. Still operating within the confines of staffing shortages, we regret that we will not offer assigned tables.

  • Breakfast: 7:30-9 a.m.
  • Lunch: 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m.
  • Supper: 5:30-7 p.m.

If you feel inspired to offer one or more blessings of thanksgiving for our meals or would like to acolyte or read at one of our church services, please let us know by contacting Aimee Bostwick,

Your lodging stay includes all meals.

Dining reservations for your guests are not necessary or available. Please come to the Kanuga dining room and a host will collect the fee and assist with seating.

A full schedule of activities will be available at check-in.

Childcare plans will be announced as we approach the summer season.

Kanuga’s pet policy will be updated as we approach the summer season.

We are excited to welcome you to a newly refurbished and re-stocked shop and canteen. If you want your child to be able to shop without cash, we recommend purchasing in advance a VISA gift card for your children to use. Guests under 18 are not permitted to charge items to the room. Adults who would like to charge merchandise to their room should present a credit card at check-in.
