FAQs

Reservations

Can I make my reservations on line?

Yes, you can make reservations on line by clicking the “Make a Reservation” link above.  After making your reservation, we will be in touch within 36 hours to comfirm and/or ask for a credit card number to make the required deposit for confirmation.  Please note that if you are with a group and have special rates, you must call in to receive those specials.

How much deposit is due?

We require a one night deposit on a two night stay and a 2 night deposit on 3 or more nights. This deposit is due within one week of reserving your room(s). Any reservations made for the following year are due on February 1 of the year in which your reservation falls. Deposits may be made by credit card, personal check, money order or cash.

What are your cancellation policies?

After deposit is made, if you cancel 30 days prior to your arrival date, you will receive your deposit refund, less a $25.00 cancellation fee. If you cancel within 30 days of your arrival, we will refund your deposit (less the $25.00 cancellation fee) if the unit is re-rented for the same number of days that you cancelled. Please call as quickly as possible if you need to cancel your reservations. This gives us the greatest opportunity to refund your deposit.

Boat Rental

How much will my gas cost?

Not to be funny, but we get this question a lot! The answer is….we don’t know. Because of variables like weight in the boat, wind speed, choppiness of the water etc, there is no way we can give an accurate estimate of your gas consumption. We can quote you our current pump price if you give us a call.

Can we take a rental boat out at night?

While we do allow multi-day rentals, all wiring has been removed for navigation lights and our insurance does not cover night time usage.  Rental boats may be used from sunrise to sunset only.

How far are you from Party Cove?

Approximately 15 miles by water. On weekends and holidays, allow a minimum of an hour and a half to get there and up to two and a half hours back. Traffic can be VERY heavy near the Grand Glaize Bridge and under the Toll Bridge.

What if we are late?

All boats are due back at Alhonna NO later than 6:00PM – there are NO exceptions. Should you bring your rental boat back after 6PM, the charge is $75.00 for each 15 minutes or $5.00 per minute. These fees will be deducted from your deposit.

How can we pay for our rental boat?

We accept cash, Traveler’s Checks, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. Fees for the deposit ($300 or $500 for a multiple day rental), sales tax and the rental fee will be collected prior to the rental.

Do you allow BBQ grills on the rental boats?

Absolutely not! Fire and gas do not mix!

Do you rent wave runners or jet skis?

Bombay Boat Rentals on Horseshoe Bend is close by for your personal watercraft rentals.

Do you drive the boat or do I?

Fishing

What about a fishing license?

Missouri Department of Conservation Fishing Licenses may be purchased at the office. An annual resident license is $12.00. Non-residents (of Missouri) may choose either the annual license for $42.00 or a daily permit for $7.00/day. Children 15 and under and Missouri residents 65 and older, do not need a license. Please note: we accept cash or check only for payment of license (no credit cards). Just a heads up….the Department of Conservation does check our docks…frequently!

Do you offer guide service?

Alhonna Resort does not offer guide service.

What type of fish will I catch on Alhonna docks?

Our docks are bedded with cedar trees and brush to attract bass and crappie. In addition to these game fish, kids can catch their fill of bluegill and sun perch and for the very patient fisherman, a variety of catfish populate our waters.

General Questions

Does Alhonna Resort have a beach?

We have a lakeside sandy beach area in front of cabin #4.  It has steps built into the seawall that go down to a gently sloping area in the lake.  We strongly suggest footwear of some sort as the bottom of the lake is very rocky. We also have 2 swim docks.

Do you allow pets?

 We do allow up to two pets per unit. The cost is $9.00 per night (each) and a $25.00 damage deposit (each). Pets must be leashed and we expect you to clean up the ground after your pet has been walked in any grassy or other public areas. Please let us know in advance if you plan on bringing your pet with you.
