Property Management with Beavers Bend Lodging
Hello, my name is Janet Cress, owner of the Last Resort Cabins. I
tell folks that I retired from the Hotel Industry & returned home
in order to have a less stressful lifestyle. The truth is, I work
all the time and enjoy every minute of it!
As a former Director of Operations for a major hotel management company,
I am well versed on all angles of what it takes to rent and service your
cabins and care for our future campers. We take pride in
the relationships we have developed and sustained with our owners, and many
I am committed to creating environments that are
upbeat and fun, and where honesty, integrity and ethics matter. My hands-on-approach,
proven track record and level of expertise is simple based on experience,
knowledge and my ability to build caring friendships with our campers.
I Love the Cabin business!

problems, most campers are very considerate. If we should call the
department, we will also alert you immediately.

your cabin or to have us service the cabin at an hourly rate which will be deducted
from the next rental.
