Cleaning  Deposit/Security Deposit:

* We DO NOT charge a cleaning fee or security deposit (when booked with us), all we ask is that when you do
check out, you leave the cabin in the same or similar condition as when you arrived. (If staying less than the required nights, there may be a cleaning fee). 
This means:
- Stripping sheets from all of the beds.
- Loading towels into washer and starting a wash.
- Cleaning kitchen counters.
- Putting furniture back the way it was upon check-in – if moved.

We clean and sanitize all units after guest’s departures and before the next guest arrival. We ask that the above
items be done so that we can keep our overhead costs down and thus our rates down
If guests feel they cannot do the above items prior to departure, they can let us know and we can discuss a
cleaning fee. We do not offer any maid service during your stay, however should you want this, for an extra fee,
we may be able to accommodate your request.

Please understand we are not a hotel – we are a vacation rental property.  Please
respect and treat it as such.

Check-in/Arrival Information:

* We are a self check in facility, arrival information will be provided prior to arrival. (when booked with us).

* Check-in time is after 4pm and check-out time BEFORE 10am. This schedule is so that we can
accommodate each guests arrival with a clean unit. Failure to depart by 10 am will result in a late check-out fee
of $50. Due to our cleaning schedule we are not able to vary this. Every effort will be made to accommodate
early check-ins. Requested check-ins before 1pm will be a fee of $50.
