This site doesn’t recognize, that folks can sometimes be flexible on arrival and depart dates, to get the perfect house for their stay.
For this house, that means not appearing in searches where potential guests have put dates for shorter stays than the required minimum stay of this house.
The posted rates are based on two kinds of stays 4 or more nights or a full 7 nights, where neither check in or out is a Friday or Saturday. That said, our rates for the amenities and value, often beat other lodging choices offering shorter stays.
This way you will have a choice, book:
1. Gap dates at a better than posted rate
2. 4 or More nights at posted rates
(without a Friday or Saturday check in or out)
3. Get a slightly higher quote, for your perfect stay
(check-in and out on your desired dates, whether 2 or 3 nights or what day of the week)
When you inquire, I’ll send at least 2 attachments:

The House's Reviews, from past Guests, can paint the best picture of the amazing stay this house delivers.
Think about It . . . When a couple plans a getaway, in a one bedroom condo, they may pay $100 per person, per night, to stay... For a tiny place, where they hear the neighbors, share a pool. ... A local casino, possibly $150 a person, per night.
ON AVERAGE, WEEKLY RENTAL
nightly Per Person, cost will be:
$28 or less a night (Sept - May) for a Group of 18**
$35 or less a night (Nov - Mid Feb) for a Group of 12**

The above amts are based on avg. weekly or nightly Rental Amts, Cleaning Fee, Damage Insurance, & Taxes. They do not include the Refundable Security Deposit, Options, or site fee.
These Per Person per night booked rates may be slightly higher for Holiday or local event stays.... But even then, they are pretty close to these nightly average cost per person.
The above is mentioned to point out the house is in everyone's budget, if you've got the people count. If your people count is less, especially far less, it may not be the best option. In which case I encourage you to check out my 2nd vacation home, River Lookout, listed on this site, #406326, which many of the same amenities.

Posted rates are based on stays similar to those described above & minimum required stays.
Events such as weddings, receptions, etc. are not eligible for the posted rates.
RATES BASED ON PEOPLE COUNT:
Peak times, rates are based a higher occupancy. Off Peak times, to be competitive with smaller venues, rates are based on fewer people.
Rates are based on No more than Visitors during stay. Planning on more? Please provide details for an accurate quote. Rates are based on a "Lodging" stay; not an "Event" stay. Often visitors translates into "Event." From Wedding to Baby Shower, they involve visitors.
Yes! Ideally, a good proportionate # of kids to adults, especially when teenagers are in the kid count. For little ones, we have some safety gates; no kid supplies such as high chairs, cribs, or changing tables. The pool has a locking gate; parents still need to be diligent, the River is behind the house.
The pet fee is generally proportionate to other pet fees. A 700 sq ft condo may charge a $95 Pet Fee, as you should imagine, a 4500 sq ft house's pet fee will be more. Pets are approved on a case by case basis, your fee may be more than posted fee, & the Refundable Deposit increased.
