East Silent Resort Policies

The following policies allow us to provide our guests with excellent service and accommodation while assuring that you and your family have relaxing and carefree vacation East Silent Resort. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Reservation Policy:

For any questions about availability or reservations please call us. For the Lakeside Cabins, rates reflect the rentals “base occupancy” which changes depending on the season. Occupancy includes the total number of adults and children (1 year of age and older). The “additional guest fee” is $25/night and $125/week. Please note that each vacation rental has a designated “maximum occupancy.” There is a two-night minimum stay outside of our summer season for all vacation rentals. In addition, there is a three-night minimum stay over some holidays. (During these special times, we may also require pre-payment in full.)

Deposit Policy:
Reservations must be accompanied by an advance deposit. A 25% deposit is required (check, cash, credit). All deposits are required within 7 days of reservation. The remaining balance is due at check-in.

Cancellation Policy:
Because of the size and propensity of advance bookings, cancellations affect us significantly. Therefore, we adhere to a strict booking and cancellation policy. All deposits are nonrefundable. However, if you cancel your reservation outside 90 days, we will hold your deposit for one year. During that time, you may apply the deposit to another reservation at East Silent Resort that works better for you. (If you do not rebook within the year, the deposit is forfeit). If you cancel within 90 days of your reservation and we are not able to rebook your unit for the same reservation period, you are responsible for the entire cost of the reservation.

Taxes & Service Charge Policy:
Rates are subject to 6.875% Minnesota sales tax and 0.50% Otter Tail County Tax.
