Lake access to guests will be from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend. In order to utilize the private lake, we require a signed document agreeing to the rules of the lake by the Association. We can either email or mail it to you which ever is most convenient. The signed document needs to be returned to us prior to your reservation. If we receive a complaint or are notified of inappropriate misuse of the lake, your security deposit will be forfeited.
We do have a landline available at the cabin to utilize for local calling.
We have provided two shovels at the property one By the front door and the other by the back door. If you were at the property during a snowstorm you would utilize the shovel to shovel off the deck. We have also provided snow melt ice that is in a red bucket on the shoe rack inside the cabin. Once the deck is shoveled you would sprinkle the snowmelt on the deck. This will help with keeping the stairs and deck clear.
We have a flat gravel driveway that you could park ttwo average sized vehicles on. In the winter months if it is snowing you will be required to park on the driveway and not the road. This is to ensure that the snowplow vehicles are able to plow the road daily around 3 PM. This might require shoveling snow on driveway to access a parking spot. We want to make sure you don't receive a hefty ticket from city.
In the winter months we provide the firewood and three fire starter sticks to help start a fire in the woodstove. If you are not familiar with making a fire we recommend that you bring up extra kindling. That could be fire starter sticks , old magazines or newspaper.
