HOTEL RESERVATION SCHEDULE: WBC has a long history of early sellouts. Our Seven Springs hotel room block is substantially larger than past guarantees, yet still encountered early sellout status due to speculative reservation tactics. Therefore, to ensure that all our guests have a better opportunity to make reservations, all lodging will be reserved only on the following schedule.

  • as of 9am, Jan 15, 2017—Stays of 5 nights or more
  • as of Feb. 15, 2017—Stays of 4 nights or more
  • as of May 15, 2017—Stays of 2 nights or more
  • as of June 15, 2017—Single Night stays (hotel rooms only)

NON-HOTEL ACCOMODATION RESERVATION RESTRICTIONS AND INFORMATION: Condo/Townhouses, Chalets and Cabins can be booked now and do NOT require delay. However, length of stay restrictions still apply; i.e., you cannot book a condo for two days until May 15, 2017.   A special week long rate is offered for Condos/Townhouses, but it does not apply to Chalets or Cabins.  Due to their variety in location and furnishings, the Condo/Townhouse unit reservations must be made by calling our reservationists at 866-437-1300, from 8am to 9pm on Monday thru Saturday, or 8am to 7pm on Sunday. Use the WBC Group Code 8B08RP and/or identify yourself as part of the WBC 2017 event.

Condominiums/townhouses are located nearby on the property and can be rented for stays of two days or more. Guests who can group together with friends and family to cohabit these units will find these accommodations most welcome given their inclusion of fully equipped kitchens and common living room areas that can enhance your visit. While having access to a car is recommended for condo rentals, it is not required, as free shuttle service is available on property around the clock to all condos booked through Seven Springs.

Even when the hotel website lists no vacancies, condo rentals are available. Call 1-866-437-1300 to speak to a reservationist about the options. Multi-bedroom condos are rented to one individual who is responsible for payment for all bedrooms in that unit. Individuals getting together to share a condo, need to elect one amongst themselves to handle the payment for the entire group. However, it is recommended that all “share with” parties be listed on the reservation in case someone needs to cancel. See Deposits & Cancellations above. 

SPECIAL Condo and Townhouse Reservation Offer:  Condo and townhouse reservations are available now in varying sizes (two-, three- and four-bedroom units) for the July 2017 World Boardgaming Championships.

The group rate for condos and townhouses for the July 2017 event will be $134 plus tax per bedroom per night.  For example, a two-bedroom unit would be $268 plus tax per night, and a three-bedroom unit would be $402 plus tax per night.

There is a Condo/Townhouse special for the 2017 event. Book seven (7) consecutive nights and the last two (2) nights are free.  You will pay only five nights at whatever bedroom rate you have selected. You may book back to back Condo/Townhouse specials in the same unit (14 consecutive nights), and you will only pay for 10 nights at whatever bedroom rate you have selected. 

You can browse the condos and townhouses via the link, below. When you have selected a unit, check availability by clicking on the “Check Availability” under the main photo of that unit. https://condos.7springs.com/Default.aspx?p=dynamicmodule&&pageid=16&ssid=10027&vnf=1#view%3Agrid

Once you have selected condo/townhouse unit number, call our reservations team at 866-437-1300 (8 am to 9pm on Monday through Saturday or 8 am to 7 pm on Sunday) to reconfirm availability and to book your reservations. Use the WBC Group Code 8B08RP and/or identify yourself as part of the WBC 2017 event. If you have specific questions on the condos/townhouses, contact Bev Spurling or Vicki Edwards in our Vacation Rentals office at 800-452-2223, Extension 7723.

DEPOSITS & CANCELLATIONS: A nonrefundable deposit of 50% of the total lodging cost per room (or 25% of total lodging cost per  condo/townhouse/chalet/cabin is required. Reservations cancelled  60 days or more in advance of arrival date will forfeit one night of the advance deposit amount. Reservations cancelled within 60 days of arrival date will forfeit the entire deposit. Reservations cannot be transferred to another party other than those initially named on the reservation. Any cancelled room will be returned to availability and  subject to claim by the next party on the waiting list. This policy is designed to prevent early sellouts by those reserving rooms on speculation. While one person is responsible for the deposit payment, it is highly recommended that all occupants be named on the reservation so that in the event of one person having to cancel, other members of the reservation can assume credit and responsibility for that reservation without it being released back to the waiting list for general resale.

SMOKE FREE FACILITY: The resort—inclusive of all hotel rooms, cabins, chalets, hallways, lobbies, meeting rooms, lounges and dining areas—is “smoke-free”. Our smoking guests may request ashtrays from the front desk for use on hotel lodging room balconies.

PROHIBITIONS: No alcoholic beverages may be brought into any licensed function room within the resort. The hotel must dispense all such beverages on the property. Similarly, outside food and beverage is limited to consumption in guestrooms and not allowed in meeting space. For the safety of our guests, no cooking of any sort is allowed in hotel rooms, suites or function rooms.
