late arrivals or no shows will not receive a refund. We have the house cleaned for "you" we charged the previous guest 60.00 to clean the home. likewise we charge 60.00 to clean the home when you depart. We only expect you to wash dished in dishwasher and return to cabinets and tidy up, we don't expect you to clean as you would your home, just leave it as decent as possilble when you check out. If we have to do an "extreme clean" where your party has spilled something and not notified us or something else that was neglected,, we may deem this as damage and possibly submit a claim, we are decent friendly clean folks and just ask that you treat us the way you would want to be treated.
A 60 DOLLAR CLEANING AND EXTRA LINEN FEE WILL BE ADDED IF WE ACCEPT A ONE NIGHT STAY. PLEASE UNDERSTAND, WITH A ONE NIGHT STAY, WE STILL HAVE TO CLEAN AS IF IT WAS A MULTIPLE NIGHT STAY. AND,,, WE ARE CLEANING THE WHOLE RESIDENCE. UP TO 4 GUESTS THE CLEANING FEE IS 60.00
PLEASE BE UPFRONT WITH YOUR NUMBER OF GUESTS.

About the owner: MY WIFE AND I BUILT THE GINGERBREAD HOUSE BEFORE WE GOT MARRIED WHILE WE WERE DATING, WE HAD IT READY TO MOVE INTO IN THE WINTER OF 1980 AND WE GOT MARRIED AND MOVED IN ON DEC 28, 1980. WE BOTH ARE LIFE LONG RESIDENTS OF FAYETTE COUNTY , I HAVE LIVED IN HICO ALL MY LIFE AND THIS PROPERTY HAS BEEN IN MY FAMILY FOR MY ENTIRE LIFE. Debbie and I lived in the Gingerbread house for 33 years and decided to use it as a supplemental income as opposed to selling it. We welcome you our guests to enjoy our retro home and cherish its memories as we have while enjoying the local area and its many things to do!!!!
