Merritt resort is a privately owned resort. One of it’s best features is the ability to get away from everything.  Our beautiful location in the Sandhills accomplishes this, but also because of our location, we can’t just turn on the vacancy sign like most hotels.  Due to this:  We cannot be responsible for adverse weather or fishing success.  You are financially responsible for all cabin days reserved in your name.  Of course, we will do our best to accommodate you, and if possible, reschedule.  Cancellations must reach us 30 days prior to your arrival date.
