Burgdorf dates back to 1862. There are fourteen cabins available for daily rental. The cabins are very rustic with woodstoves, beds, kerosene lamps and outhouses. You would need to bring your own bedding, food, cooking utensils, etc. We call it "camping in a cabin." Pack it in, pack it out - no garbage service. Please bring only biodegradable toiletries.
Burgdorf has no electricity. The nearest place to get groceries is McCall, however, we do have a small store with cold drinks and snacks, and some grocery items.
Our large hot springs pool is 50 by 75 feet and has a sand bottom and log sides. It is about 5 feet deep. The temperature is approximately 104 degrees at the feed end to about 98º at the outflow end.

The area around Burgdorf is a calving ground for deer, elk and moose, so no pets are allowed.
