Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Cleaning $250 + tax
  • Refundable Damage Deposit $1,000
  • Tax Rate 6%

Notes:

The cost of thoroughly cleaning 6 bathrooms (7, including the Chalet), washing and changing linen in 7 bedrooms with 13 beds, maintaining a fully-equipped 17½ x25 kitchen as well as cleaning, vacuuming and preparing the Lodge (and Chalet) in first-class condition has caused us to institute a cleaning charge of $250 for the Lodge and $90 for the Chalet, in addition to the rental amount. The cleaning crew has only 5 hours between guests to ensure the Lodge and Chalet and surrounding property are in the 100% condition you deserve and expect.

There is a $1,000 Refundable Damage Deposit.


Owner's cancellation policy:

100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
