Check in guest parking is available in the lot on the south side of Academic Hall (the two story, beige, wood-paneled building that houses our Lodging Office).  Free guest parking for your stay is usually available in front of or to the side of your cottage when you display your guest parking pass (pick up from the Lodging Office).  In busier seasons, you may need to park slightly further away from your cottage or lodge.


As part of our commitment to environmental sustainability and to reduce energy and water consumption, fresh linens are provided prior to arrival only. Additional housekeeping services are available upon request. Please call the Lodging Office at 303.952.1611.

Linen Exchange 

From June – August, bed linens and towels can be exchanged Monday through Friday (excluding holidays) 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM and 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM at the linen exchange window, located in the guest laundry room. From September – May, fresh towels, bed linens or supplies are available upon request by calling the Lodging Office at 303.952.1611.

Pack ‘n Play Cribs and Air Mattresses

A limited number of Pack ‘n Play® cribs and air mattresses are available on a first come, first served basis. Cribs are complimentary. The rental fee for air mattresses is $25 per stay. Please contact the Lodging Office for more information.

TV and Phones

All accommodations are television and phone-free to allow guests to relax and unplug. For those wanting to follow their favorite sports team, the lounge at the Dining Hall is equipped with two televisions. A public phone for complimentary local calls is located in the lobby of Academic Hall.

Complimentary Basic Wi-Fi 

Lodging guests receive unlimited, complimentary basic Wi-Fi service. Please stop by the Lodging Office for connection instructions. 


For your convenience, a coin operated guest laundry room is in the alley between Primrose Lane and Astor Lane, midway between Missions House and Columbine Lodge. Vending machines dispense soap and there is a bill changer machine in the laundry room. Change may also be obtained from the General Store or Dining Hall.

Sofa Sleepers

Most of our 1–3 bedroom cottages and a few of the apartments in Columbine Lodge have sofa sleepers in the living room. The bedding for the sofa can generally be found in a closet or dresser drawer.

Recycling, Composting and Trash

Help us become America’s most sustainable National Historic Landmark and a zero-waste facility by utilizing the container on the kitchen counter and the single stream recycling container located under the kitchen sink. Waste bags should be removed from the containers and placed on the curb outside your cottage between 7 AM and 9 AM. Housekeeping picks up trash, recycling and composting materials daily.

Replacement bags are located under the kitchen sink and should be utilized as follows:

  • Clear bags = recycling
  • Black bags = trash
  • Green compostable bags = compost

Please contact the Lodging office – 303.952.1611 – for additional bags

NOTE: Please do not set any waste outside your cottage overnight as this attracts animals. Instead, use the bear-proof dumpsters, recycling and composting containers throughout the park. Please review the Chautauqua map for the location closest to you.
