Rules & Policies


Guest Age Requirement

We are sorry for any inconvenience, but we do not rent the cottage to anyone under the age of 25.  We do require that the person making the reservation also provide a copy of his or her driver’s license.  While we certainly hope that there will be no need to do so, any damage to the cottage will be assessed to the person making the cottage rental.


Only dogs are permitted in the cottage.  Sorry, no cats.  There is a $100 non-refundable per dog deposit payable upon reservation confirmation for your dog.   We limit the number of dogs to no more than 2.  Please remember that granting the right to bring your dog(s) is a privilege, not a right.  So saying, we will expect you to take great care to ensure that your dog is not left outside to bark endlessly and be a source of irritation to the surrounding homeowners.  Over the years, we have found that dog owners are typically very sensitive to how their pet is perceived by others, and we are assuming you are one of those owners. However, any violation of our dog policy or if we receive complaints from surrounding homeowners, we will immediately terminate your weekly rental, with no refund given.  Thank you for understanding and cooperating with us on this very sensitive item!

Cleaning Fee

There is a one-time $55.00 cleaning fee that is also applied to every stay, and this fee is billed at the time of reservation confirmation.  This fee is not included in the rental fee, and this fee is not refundable.  

Non-smoking Cottage

There is no smoking in the cottage.  The owners are adamant non-smokers.  If you must smoke, please go out on the cottage’s deck or the grounds.  Please be sure any cigar or cigarette butt is fully extinguished and picked up when your rental period ends.  We thank you for your understanding and for your courtesy in respecting these rules and policies.


Please remember there are property owners who live on the lake year-around and please be respectful of them in terms of noise.  We do understand that you may want to make the cottage the meeting place for a family gathering.  But we ask that no fireworks are used after the curfew time, and please remember to police your party and remember that you are staying in a very wooded area.  The last thing any of us wants to see happen is a fire.  Lastly, if a police officer is called to the cottage due to a lot of noise, a loud party or damage to the property, your rental period will be terminated immediately, with no refund given.

We ask that outside activities cease no later than 10 PM on weekdays and 11 PM on weekends.  

Thank you again for your cooperation and understanding!

Thank you for assisting us in adhering to these rules and policies for the cottage.  We want your experience to be something you truly enjoy, as well as being respectful and mindful of those around you!  Thanks again!
