Cancellations made less than 14 days before check-in will result in no refund and an authorized obligation equal to 100% of the total booking cost.
Exceptions will not be made if you are not catching fish, the weather conditions, or late arrivals/early departures.
Total Occupancy Limits: Exceeding the allowed occupancy limit is not permitted. Renters who exceed the stated limits are subject to immediate termination of reservations, and total loss of rental fees. An additional fee of $150.00 for each person in excess of the reserved occupant limits will be charged.
No Pet Policy. Unfortunately, pets are not permitted inside the cottages or cabins. Renters who do not comply are subject to immediate termination of reservations, and loss of total rental fees. In addition, an unauthorized pet fee of $200 will be charged for allergen prevention and additional cleaning.
No Smoking/Vaping Policy. Smoking or vaping inside the cottages or cabins results in the renter authorizing a $250 charge to be applied to your filed credit card for cleaning and odor removal. Please smoke outdoors.
Cleaning fees: All standard cleaning and associated fees are included in the cottage/cabin rental rates. However, guests must reasonably care for the property and follow all posted check-out procedures. Leaving a property in an abused, uncared-for condition will require additional cleaning fees that will be charged to the registered guest’s credit card on file.
Security Deposit: A credit card on file must be provided as security prior to check-in. In the event abusive damage occurs to the cabin and/or the surrounding property during your stay, you remove items from the cabin and/or the surrounding property, or your stay results in the need for additional cleaning of the cabin and/or the surrounding property, your credit card will be charged the cost of any necessary repairs, item replacement, and cleaning. By booking and providing your credit card number, you agree and authorize us to make such charges without additional notice or further authorization.
