Reservations and Fees

This page provides information on how to make a reservation, reservation polices, and the ability to check current availability.

To request a reservation, fill out a Reservation Form and submit it via email. Payment by credit card, check or money order is required to confirm a reservation.

Check Calendar for Availability

The pink bars indicate that the cabin is booked. Note the name of the booked cabin is indicated (Cedar, Log, Frame)

Use of the hot springs and the cabins is by reservation and fee payment only. To preserve the Tolovana experience, we limit day use reservations during periods when all the cabins are reserved.

Reservations and fee payment may be made up to 3 months in advance of the first night's stay (based on date) and not a single day earlier.

Requests more than 3 months in advance of first night's reservation will be not be accepted. Example: for a reservation starting on 21 March apply on 21 December.

Drawing Rules for High Demand Times

THS LTD uses a drawing system to determine the winners during high demand times.

All reservation requests received in the 24 hour period (midnight to midnight Alaska time) three months before the first day requested are entered into the drawing (December 15th for March 15 th ).

There is no advantage to sending your request early in the day and it is NOT a first come first serve system.

The drawing is held and the names are logged in the order they are drawn. If the winning party is unable to confirm their reservation, then the 2nd name drawn is contacted. We keep this list and the order of the drawing in case there are cancelations.

Reservations are confirmed upon receipt of full payment. Contact the office if you have questions or for information on current trail conditions. Please note that there is no THS LTD staff on site so trail reports come from visitors returning from their trip.

You will be sent a rental agreement and requested to send a confirmation that you have read and will comply with the agreement.

Reservations may NOT be sold another party. The person who is making the reservation is responsible for adhering to the policies and will be person THS LTD will deal with should there be any damages to the facilities or reports of unacceptable behavior (unruliness, bad dog behavior, etc.)

A trail and area Map with the 10.1 mile trail marked on it can be printed from this site.

Fee for Dogs

There is a $10 fee per dog per visit. Dogs impact other clients Tolovana experience negatively by various ways including barking, stealing food off decks, peeing (yellow snow) and pooping all over, and getting hair on bunks. Dogs need to be restrained and are not allowed to roam the premises. Dogs are not allowed at the bathing tubs.

Weekend Reservations Priority

Advance reservations for a single Friday, or Saturday, or Sunday night can only be confirmed one week in advance. A two-night stay on the weekend has reservation priority over a single night stay.

Day Use

Visitors may enjoy day use of the hot springs at the cost of $40/person/day.

However, our facilities can only accommodate a finite number of visitors. Cabin reservations take priority over day use.

To preserve the Tolovana experience, we limit day use reservations during periods when all the cabins are reserved.

Additional People

You can add up to 2 people at $40/night/person to each of the cabins
Cedar = 6 + 2 extra = 8 maximum
Log = 4+2 extra = 6 maximum
Frame 2+ 2 extra = 4 maximum
Kids - kids 12 years old and older count as adults

If you are found to have exceeded the maximum number of people that you paid for or exceed the maximum capacity of the hot springs you will be required to pay the additional fees and you will be in breach of the reservation agreement. This will impact your ability to make future reservations.

Cancellation and Refund Policy

If you cancel your reservation there is a $50 minimum fee. Fee is $25 if reservation is less than $100.
Full refund (minus cancellation fee) if you notify THS LTD at least 30 days before the first night reserved.
50% refund if you notify THS LTD at least 14 days before the first night reserved.
0% refund if you notify THS LTD less than 14 days before the first night reserved.
