Please respect private property

We would like to ask people to please honor our private property at Otter Cove. For some reason people seem to be under the impression that they can land on our private dock, walk across our land and pick berries at will. 

Others seem to be under the impression that there is some agreement for public access with the State Parks. That is definitely not the case — we will grant access if there is a fire or some other emergency but other than that there is no agreement to grant public access to our land.  

Our dock, which was built at great personal expense, is reserved for our water taxi and boats belonging to cabin guests. Berry pickers can access Sadie Knob from the North or South Eldred trails. We do grant limited access to hikers who call ahead and make reservations with us. 

Our cabin guests book our cabins and expect to have some peace and quiet and a bit of privacy during their stay and do not appreciate groups of people infringing on their vacation time. Thank you so much for your consideration.
