If received less than fourteen days prior to arrival, the reservation deposit shall be made by bank cashier's check or money order. All payments due upon arrival must be made in U.S. cash, bank cashier's check or money order.

DEPOSIT CANCELLATION POLICY:

If you must cancel, please contact us at least fourteen days prior to your scheduled arrival for a full refund. If you cancel or shorten your stay within fourteen days of your scheduled arrival, we will only refund your reservation deposit if we are able to rebook the cottage for the entire time of your reservation. Same day cancellations, early departures and no shows are responsible for the entire amount of the stay.

The return of your damage deposit will be made the day of your departure if there is no damage. If there is damage, it may take us up to five (5) additional business days to determine the cost of the damage and return the appropriate amount to you.

Up to four (4) persons.

GUESTS:

You are permitted day guests but are expected to pay for overnight guests at $25.00 per person per night except for infants sleeping in beds you bring. The exception is if you rented the cottage by yourself (one person) in which case you are permitted one overnight guest at no charge. You are not permitted to give access to the property to persons other than your guests and repair or maintenance personnel.

CHECK IN/CHECK OUT:

Arrive on or after 3:00 p.m. on the day of arrival and check out at or before 11:00 a.m. on the day of departure.

WINTER & EARLY SPRING RENTALS:

We will provide snow removal during daylight hours and sand barrels on the driveway as well as on the town highway leading up to East Street which is also a town highway. The Town road crew does a good job of plowing and sanding town highways during "drive-time". You are encouraged to have snow tires and a vehicle with good traction if you expect to travel in the evening or night during bad weather or anytime during major storms. Vermont gravel roads in the Winter and early Spring experience one or more warm periods that cause the gravel roads to thaw and become slippery and muddy. You should expect to take longer to reach paved roads during these periods and vehicles with higher clearance are encouraged.
