****************** Timberlost Cabin ***************
Welcome to Timberlost !!
We hope you enjoy your stay.
Timberlost is perfect for a small family or as a couples get-Away...Sorry - no one under the age of 25, guests must be registered to stay and no pets, - Failure to comply may forfeit your security deposit.
Timberlost is also smoke free.
Please help yourselves to any condiments, spices, etc. in the fridge and kitchen cabinets. However, please take any leftovers home with you along will any garbage and recyclables, as there is no pick up.
Water - Timberlost is an environmentally sensitive location, please take special care on water and septic use. Use grease can under sink when cooking. Occasionally, you may smell the minerals in the water, won’t hurt you and is great for showers and cooking, but drinking water is provided in the cooler (spare bottle is under the stairs). ** Please bring your own towels and face cloths.
Upon arrival, please go under the stairs and turn on the breakers marked “water pump” and “Hot” water tank. You will also have to shut these breakers off once you depart.
Of note, there is a light switch outside to the right of the entry door, in a grey box. These are the outside spot lights that really make night time spectacular. Just turn them off before bedtime.
Heat – Timberlost can be heated by electric base boards. Upstairs independently per room. Main control is on the wall at the entry. Turn the dial up or down, but only down to the mark noted. A nice source of heat and ambiance comes from the high efficiency wood stove. Paper and kindling should be used to start the fire. Smoke may come into the cabin only until the draft up takes over. If that happens, please open a window to help create the draft. Wood is located beside the stove and should be replenished with the outside wood as required. Do Not overload the stove. Damage can occur, with a possible chimney fire if the stove gets too hot. Usually one or two small logs at a time are good and there is a damper control to the lower right of the stove used to slow down the burn time. We usually run the damper in the middle, a little lower at bedtime. Fire bucket for ashes is located outside beside the door and should be used when cleaning out the stove. Leave ashes outside, you can also dump these in the creek without any harm. There is no AC, and we have never missed it.
BBQ – nothing like a Weber – Please make sure propane is off after cooking and grill is cleaned. Spare tank is close by, just in case.
TV/DVD player – there is a selection of DVD’s for viewing. Turn on systems by turning on the power bar first, select HDMI input on TV and DVD on the Stereo. Use the remotes for control. An HDMI cable is loose on top of the mantle for laptop of external hard drive use. For the kids…there is a Game Cube upstairs in the media room with a wide selection of games.
Departure Day – please strip the beds and leave sheets on the rocking chair in the bedroom. Clean and put away all dishes, take left overs, garbage (including recyclables) with you. All lights off, upstairs thermostats to be turned all the way down to the off position. Main thermostat turned down to the lower mark (58’), Turn Water and Hot Water breakers to OFF. Leave carport light on only. Pull door closed and press the lock symbol.
As with any Bn’B we are on the honor system and we have a local Sheriff that drives by on our behalf. Should you have any questions, problems or concerns, please contact Jeff and or Cindy direct dial to 416.527.0197.
We sincerely hope you enjoy your stay at Timberlost and look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
