Our commitment to the health and safety of our renters and family is of the utmost importance to us. The new challenge before us as a hospitality host is that we have unexpectedly been thrust onto the front line of public health. It is our job to provide an atmosphere that is inviting to our clients, while implementing stepped-up, rigorous cleaning, sanitation and disinfecting protocols. While our reviews will assure you we keep a very pristine, organized home, we plan to add another level to our top-level of cleaning. This is the “new-normal”. I do the cleaning and turn the cottage over and can assure you nothing will be missed.

Adults only, it’s unfortunate we have had several rents with extensive cleaning and damage. As of June 2, 2023 we are not suitable for children.
“HIGHLY RECOMMEND PURCHASING THE CANCELLATION INSURANCE” We have a no refund policy. If you must cancel and the property is re-booked, a refund will be issued less 10% and any fees charged us by VRBO (the 10% will be from the nightly rate and cleaning fee total only, VRBO holds all other money and would be responsible for all other refunds.)
If you are looking for a very clean rental, this is for you. However, we expect it to be kept neat and orderly and the check out list must be followed. (For example: Clean, dry dishes put away, wipe down the kitchen and leave it with the full respect of how you found it.)
