1. Check in and check out time ?
Check-in time is at 4:00 p.m, but 80% of the time our cabin is ready earlier , we will text the day of your arrival to let you know. Please do not arrive early unless authorized by us.
Check-out time is by 1O:00 a.m. Please be prepared to be out by 10:00, as most of the time, the cabin has to be cleaned and prepared for another guest arriving that same day.
2. Do you have a cancellation fee? No we don't
3.What is your cancellation Policy? Cancellations affect owners significantly . If you are not sure because of medical conditions, work schedule or weather conditions we strongly suggest " Purchasing Travel insurance". Travel insurance is purchased at check-out when making the reservation. It's something VRBO offers not me. I want to mention that 95% of my guests don't pay travel insurance and it's ok not to get one. Our cancellation/ refund policy is the following :
*100% refund if cancelled 30 days prior to the check-in date.
*.After the 30 day limit has passed only re-booking applies , sorry no exceptions. You may re-book for future dates and you just pay the difference for seasonal rates. We are of the few owners that won't make you loose your money. If you need to cancel last minute we allow you to re-book for future dates.
Note: Please understand we cannot refund after the time limit has passed. The 30 days barely gives us owners time to re-book and when you decide to cancel after the 30 days, this leaves us stranded with lost days. . Most guests book with months of anticipation and it's real hard to get last minute bookings. . Owners are a small business and we don't have the facility as a hotel to get last minute guests.
*Refunds cannot be made due to last minute bad weather conditions as Snow and Winter Storms happening in either your City or ours. Changes in booking dates can be made instead without penalty. Other cabin owners won't allow you to cancel and re-book due to inclement weather, we do and that is why we get many bookings.
*Refunds cannot be made for holiday bookings of - New Year’s Eve, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
4. How is the refund made? Once you message saying you need to cancel and you are cancelling 30 days before check-in then the refund is a follows:
Vrbo will refund your money in 5 business days and it will go directly to the card or bank you paid with.
Note : Very important at the moment of reserving you will see the pop up will say : 100% refund if cancelled 60 days before check in and 50% if cancelled 30 days before. Please ignore that. The system doesn't allow me to select my own setting so I had to chose that one, but we will refund 100% if you cancel 30 days before you check-in. We will honor what our rental agreement says, that is the one that matters.
5. What is rental agreement : Its a document in which us owners write down all our house rules, terms & conditions. Like no parties , no smoking, no pets etc. It is an agreement between the owner and the guest. When you are booking through this site it's a box you need to mark as accept it says I accept the rental agreement ( VIRTUAL AGREEMENT). Make sure to read it.
6. Do you make exception on pets?
We do not allow pets of any kind in our cabin because our cabin is listed as allergy free, sorry. If pets are found to be in the cabin, Guests will be subject to eviction and loss of all money paid, plus a cleaning fee of $150 to cover carpet and furniture
cleaning and flea prevention measures.
7. Is this a smoking cabin? Absolutely not, You may smoke outside, but not indoors. If evidence is found you smoked inside, extra cost will incur to pay for cleaning and sanitation.
8. Do you have daily maid service? This cabin is a privately owned property and even though we offer linens, towels, blankets and a starter kit for your arrival daily cleaning service is not included in your rental. Keep in mind we are not a hotel just owners renting you our home.
9. Do you offer military discount? Unfortunately not at this time, our prices are below market price and with tax included. The discount is already in the price included.
10. Do I need a 4WD or AWD to your cabin? If the weather is nice then you do not need it. We provide a video showing ride to the cabin once paid in full. 4WD is only needed if there is hazardous conditions like snow. Although all roads are paved and maintained by the private HOA, it is not uncommon that in late fall , winter and early spring to have hazard road conditions. We recommend that if the weather says it will snow or have Ice Showers to have a four-wheel drive and/or chains.
11. Can you provide addresses to drive by and look at the cabin? We provide address and a video showing the ride to the cabin only to our booked guest. Sorry, but the privacy and security of our guests are top priority for us.
11. Can you arrange roses, balloons, birthday cakes or decorations for special occasions at extra cost? Yes, our cleaners does all type of preparations for honeymoons, anniversaries, birthdays. You contact her directly and pay her with debit/credit card what ever you need when time comes.
12. What is the maximum occupancy ? 4 people , our cabin is small and does not fit more than 4. There will be an additional $10 per guest per night if there is more than 4. It also requires previous authorization if more than 4. Our cabin is suited more for couples or a small family with kids .
13. When booking do I pay per day or night?
You pay for every night you sleep at the cabin. Example: You book Sept 16-20. This means you check-in September 16 and you check-out the 20th.. In other words you pay for 4 nights ( 16, 17, 18, 19). You are not paying for the night of the 20th. You would check-out on the 20th.
14. How much do I pay when reserving? My listing is set up to charge 50% at the moment of booking and the other 50% 30 days before check-in. If you do not have the 50% for the 1st installment message me that we can edit so you can book with us. We can edit the booking for you to pay 30 % instead.
