Winter Statement

We want to thank everyone that visited us this year and helped keep The Dunes safe this summer. Our guests' and patrons' safety and health are our main priorities. As the cooler temps are forcing us to move indoors, we have made the decision to close for the winter season, beginning November 2. We know indoor events are major spreaders of COVID-19. For this reason, we do not feel comfortable keeping our bar and resort open. This is not goodbye, simply a "see ya later." We look forward to welcoming you back next year. Make sure to go online and get your room booked for 2021!
