Pets are only allowed on a case by case basis. If pets are found to have been in the cabin without permission there will be an extra charge.

*Note: due to recent hot tub issues, a minimum of $50 of security deposit will be held if any foreign objects are found in the hot tub upon renter's departure. This blocks the filter and makes the hot tub unavailable for next guest.
