16. Our Waterfall Cottage is located inside the Camp Glisson Retreat Center. Guests at the Waterfall Cottage must follow the rules of Camp Glisson when on their property once you enter the first security gate. There are about 10 private cottages along the creek. Our cottage lot has 60 feet frontage on the creek and is 150 feet deep. The camp owns all the trails and the waterfall and waterfall area. Their rules are posted at the parking area, but include: no firearms can be brought onto the property, no alcohol use on their property, and no smoking. This Methodist camp has about 400 acres and holds summer camps for hundreds of children in June and July as well as weekend retreats throughout the year. Campers arrive on Sunday afternoons and depart on Friday mornings. The cabins, dining hall and activity areas are quite a ways downstream of the cottage. Campers will be indoors at the Program Center from time to time across the creek from the cottage. Note that use of the trails and the waterfall area by our guests may be restricted during June and July. Guests can, of course, enjoy the shoals of Cane Creek in front of our cottage and the beautiful view of the falls from the cottage and Adirondack chair viewing area.
