Cabin Insurance Program Notice -

Please be aware that a portion of cabin insurance customers are experiencing non-renewal of policies. Most policies obtained through this program are unaffected.

A key carrier is pulling back due to economic conditions and losses unrelated to our program. While insurance non-renewal has become a more common experience for cabin owners, we want to reassure our members that Assurance Risk Managers (ARM) is working to resolve this situation. ARM continues to offer cabin insurance through other carriers, however those who apply may see fewer (or higher) quotes due to reduced options. ARM is also actively seeking a replacement carrier.
Please contact ARM directly at (888) 454-9562 if you have further questions regarding your policy. Keep in mind this program is designed to provide options for those struggling to find insurance. NFH and our partners are committed to this goal.



Contributing to NFH

We appreciate you. Whether you are an individual, a tract association or an event sponsor - your support makes a difference.  Everything we do is supported by member dues, but with additional support from donors, we strive continually to improve our benefits and sustain our mission protecting the cabin program.

If you are considering organizations to give to at this time of year, we hope you'll consider the only national organization standing up for the Recreation Residence program and a nation of cabin owners.

We've received a Gold rating from Guidestar, certifying transparency in non-profit organizations.

NFH released two messages since this situation began, both from our NFH President, Doug Gann:

COVID-19 & Cabin Owners




The Great American Outdoors Act

from Summit Strategies, NFH's government affairs consultant

I’ve told people, “It’s an interesting time to be in Washington,” more times than I can count since moving to D.C. but the phrase has never been more relevant than it is today. With coronavirus grabbing hold in D.C. and Oregon, Summit Strategies closed its offices on March 12. Since then, Summit team members have been working remotely from our homes—in my case I’m set up on my dining room table along with my wife, now also working from home. Most congressional offices closed shortly after Summit did, with staff working remotely, and the Capitol complex was closed to outside visitors.

As of approximately 2012, all National Forests have been in the process of revising their Land Management Plans. Your forest may have completed the process, or may be taking comments as they get ready for finish up.

Read more about how you and/or your tract association might get involved in Forest Plans, how to advocate for the recreation residence program, and even see sample letters HERE.
