SECURITY DEPOSITS: In lieu of a security deposit we will hold your credit/debit card on file. If there are damages to this cabin during your stay, we will bill your credit/debit card and send you an invoice. You agree to this by booking this unit.

Please realize that housekeeping staff only have a limited amount of time to get the cabin ready for the next guest, so please be on time. If your late check-out prevents the next guest from checking in, then you will be charged for an additional nights rent and taxes. No early check-in is permitted. This Agreement does not create a tenancy or residence. Guest must depart at the appropriate time.

Any damage noticed upon arrival should be reported immediately. If damage is not reported, guest credit/debit card may be charged for the cost of the repair. All general maintenance should also be reported so the cabin can be kept in good repair. In order not to be charged additional fees, the following must occur. All units will be inventoried and inspected BEFORE and AFTER every occupancy.

  2. No items are missing upon the inventory check. (This includes, but is not limited to, transferring items to other cabins.)

DAMAGES: You are responsible for any and all damages that occur to the property or contents by you or any other member of your group while you are the registered occupant of the property. In lieu of a security deposit we will keep your credit/debit card on file as a security deposit. If we discover that there has been damage to the property or contents while you are the occupant we will capture an amount from your credit/debit card to cover the estimated cost of repairs. The amount we capture will be an estimate and will probably be more than the actual cost of repairs. We will provide a statement of the damages and the cost of the repairs after they have been completed. If there is a refund due it will be returned to the credit/debit card after all repairs have been made. If the cleaning company detects any evidence of smoking in the cabin you will be billed an additional $200 to deodorize the home.

TRAVEL INSURANCE: WHAT’S COVERED?

For example, if a traveler is forced to cancel a trip due to a tornado, travel insurance with trip cancellation can provide a reimbursement for nonrefundable expenses, up to the limit of coverage purchased.

If severe weather forces an evacuation, the travel insurance may provide reimbursement for nonrefundable expenses, and additional travel expenses. All claims will be evaluated on their own merits at the time of adjudication.
