Housekeeping
We currently do not charge a cleaning fee. To help us keep it this way we ask that guests leave the cottage clean when checking out. Required guest cleaning includes: wiping off all counters (kitchen and bath) and stovetop, washing all dishes/load and start dishwasher, and taking out all recycling and trash (cleaning supplies are provided.) Failure to do the required cleaning will result in a cleaning fee charged to the Renters credit card. The base rate is $50. If more than one hour is required for cleaning, each additional hour will be charged at $50/hour. We take care of washing all of the linens (kitchen, bed, and bath) and the more detailed cleaning.

Damages
Renters are responsible for maintaining the cottage and leaving it undamaged and clean at check-out. Disregard of this responsibility on the part of the Renter will be grounds for termination of this agreement at the sole discretion of the owner. Disorderly conduct of the Renter(s) is also cause for termination. In either of these 2 circumstances, the Renter will forfeit any fees paid. The Renter(s) submitting the reservation shall be liable for any damage to the cottage and its contents and will have their credit card charged accordingly.

Access
If the Owner(s) or maintenance services need to enter the cottage during the rental period for reasons such as mechanical maintenance, every effort will be made to give the Renter sufficient notice in hopes of finding a mutually agreeable time. Routine 'outdoor' gardening maintenance occurs on a regualar basis. There will be no need for us to enter the house.

Indemnity
The owner is not responsible for circumstances beyond his/her control. Rental of the property and occupation thereof is entirely at the risk of the Renter(s); and while every effort is made by the Owner to insure the comfort and safety of the Renter(s), the owner is not responsible for such comfort and safety while they occupy the Owner's property during the period of tenancy, unless through wilful negligence of the Owners.

No Smoking
Smoking is not allowed anywhere on the property. Disregard of this policy will result in a $300 charge to your credit card account.

No Pets
Pets or animals are not allowed anywhere inside the house or on the premises, not even to visit briefly, no exceptions. Disregard of this policy will result in a $300 charge to your credit card account.

Items Left Behind
We are not responsible for items left at the Cottage. Please carefully check the house for belongings prior to departing. If you leave something, notify us and if we can locate the item we will mail it to you for the cost of shipping plus a $10 service fee.
