The Cummings Dining Hall, named after Jay Cummings, assistant director emeritus, is located along the lakeshore with beautiful scenic views. Portions of the dining hall building were originally used to store guide boats and canoes. The actual dining area was used to build and repair the boats used at the hotel.
Cortland Auxiliary prepares three delicious meals a day. Meals are served sit-down family-style at 8 a.m., noon and 6 p.m. The kitchen utilizes people from each group to help, known as the kitchen patrol or KP's. Everyone should take a turn pitching in and helping. If you or someone in your group has any dietary concerns or is a vegetarian, contact the cook at least two weeks prior to your arrival.
Upstairs above the dining hall is the Casino. The Casino in its early days hosted a variety of events including gambling and dancing, after all a casino is a building or room for social gatherings. Since SUNY Cortland's presence, the Casino has been divided into living quarters and a classroom. The classroom is a large open room with folding tables and chairs. There are knickknacks and educational materials throughout the room. This room works well for large gatherings or indoor games.
The Terrace Cottages are a series of four separate cottages, which have two rooms each. The cottages located behind the Casino, have lovely small porches with chairs and tables for relaxation. Two of the rooms throughout the cottages have three beds while most have two. All of the beds throughout camp are twin-size. Collectively the cottages can sleep 18 people. Each cottage room has its own bathroom complete with a shower or tub and potable (consumable) running water.
The Cedars is a cabin set in the middle of the property with a wonderful porch and a shared main room. The Cedars has sleeping accommodations for nine people. There are four bedrooms each with its own bathroom. The bathrooms are complete with shower stalls and the bedrooms with twin-sized beds (some of which are bunk beds).
The Main Lodge was the original main building and dining facility for the hotel when it first opened. The downstairs of the lodge has a living room area, an area with small tables (card playing size) and chairs, a small library, a refrigerator and a ping-pong table. It creates a warm and pleasant social gathering area.
The upstairs boasts six bedrooms sleeping a total of 18 people. Most beds are bunk beds, again with each room having its own bathroom. The bathrooms all have a shower stall, toilet and sink with running potable water.
