We’re staying at the upscale Madden’s Resort on Gull Lake.  Our group rate is $190/night plus taxes.  If you’re staying all four nights (June 27-July 1), you’ll save more than $500 over the room’s rack rate.

If you make your reservation online , you get a better cancellation policy:

Online reservations cancelled prior to 72 hours of the arrival date, will be refunded the full deposit, less a USD 25.00 cancellation fee. All Cancellations received less than 72 hours prior to arrival, will forfeit the deposit amount. Failure to cancel your reservation will require payment for the entire reservation.

You can also make your reservation by calling the resort at (218) 829-2811 and telling them you’re with the Cessna group.  But then your cancellation policy will be much more restrictive:

Deposits will only be refunded if a reservation is cancelled at least 60 days in advance of your arrival, and a cancellation fee of $25.00 per person will apply.  If you cancel your reservation less than 60 days prior to your arrival, deposits are not refundable.  On reservations made less than 60 days prior to arrival, the deposit is not refundable.  Guests are responsible for the entire period of their reserved stay, early departures or reservation reductions are not refundable.
