Required Guest Information: All reservation holders must be 25 years of age or older. We reserve the right to verify the age of the reservation holder at any time and to refuse occupancy if proper identification, such as a valid driver’s license, is not presented at check-in. The State of Wisconsin requires hospitality establishments to keep a guest log of each guests legal name, address and contact information. You will be required to fill out our guest log/sign-in form before being allowed to rent one of our units.  Misrepresentation of occupancy, age or identity will result in the offending guest vacating the premises without a refund.

Disturbances: Guests and their use of the premises shall not disturb or offend surrounding guests, the property manager or neighbors. Quiet hours are to be observed from 10:00 pm – 8:00 am. Any reported disturbance may result in requiring the offending guests to vacate the premises immediately and without refund.

Parties, Gatherings or Events: Any gathering of people at the property which exceeds the number of people who are paid guests are not allowed unless prior approval is given by the property manager.

COVID-19: We reserve the right to refuse any reservation that is made by a guest who has been to any other country or outside the State of Wisconsin in the last month. We also reserve the right to refuse any guest who exhibits any signs of having a cold, flu or excessive sneezing/coughing upon their arrival or during their stay.

RESERVATIONS & PAYMENT:

Deposits:  We hold reservations with a valid credit card and a $50 deposit for any bookings of one week or less that are not paid in full during the reservation process. For bookings of a month or more, there is a $500 deposit.  All deposits are later applied to our guest’s reservation balance.

Payment Due: All reservation balances are due in full 30 days before your check-in date. If we are not able to reach guests for payment after 3 attempts, we reserve the right to cancel the reservation and proceed with re-renting the unit.

Guests who cancel their reservation less than 14 days before their check-in date will not receive a refund and will be responsible for the full amount of the reservation unless the unit is re-rented. If the unit is re-rented for the entirety of the original reservation, the canceling guest will receive a full refund, less a $50 service fee. If the unit is re-rented for a portion of the original reservation, the canceling guest will receive a refund in correlation with the amount of re-rented days, less a service fee.

Guests who fail to cancel their reservation and do not arrive on their check-in date are responsible for the full balance of their entire reserved stay.

If a guest must shorten their stay after arrival, they will remain responsible for the full balance of the original reservation.

Pets are not to be left unattended in rental units unless they are crated. Pets are not to be left unattended tied up outside. We have two very nice fenced dog kennels with indoor shelters that guests can use for free for the duration of their stay. Damage by a pet to the property is the pet owner’s sole responsibility. You will be charged for any and all damage your pet does to the rental unit and surrounding landscaping and grounds if it is beyond normal wear and tear.

Pets must not disturb other guests. We have neighbors that will complain about excessive barking.

CARE OF THE UNITS

Guests shall leave the premises, unit, and furnishings in the condition they were in when you arrived. We reserve the right to charge our guests for any repairs outside of normal maintenance, reasonable wear and tear, or for any extra cleaning beyond our typical routine cleaning regimen.

Guests shall not bring, keep, or have, either inside or outside the premises, any article or object of a hazardous nature, including fireworks, explosives, flammable items, gasoline or guns (other than for hunting during your stay – firearms must be pre-approved by the property manager before entering the premises and any rental unit).

GRILLING: Be cautious while using the outdoor grill. You will see burn marks on the deck where one  guest did not watch for hot coals that fell onto the deck and could have burned the house down or destroyed the deck.

DO NOT LEAVE THE WINDOWS OPEN WHILE IT IS RAINING. EVEN A LIGHT RAIN. If water damage occurs due to you leaving the windows open when it rains, you will be charged for all damages. Do not leave the windows open if you are leaving the premises for day trips or any lengthy time period.

Every effort will be made to make reasonable repairs as quickly as possible. No refunds will be made for the malfunction of non-essential equipment including Wifi and cell phone coverage.

USE OF FIRE PIT AND FIREWOOD: Small firewood is available in the red pole building. Any larger firewood can be purchased from neighbors in the area.  YOU WILL BE HELD 100% RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY FIRES YOU START IN THE FIRE PIT AND ANY DAMAGES THAT MAY OCCUR DURING YOUR USE OF THE FIRE PIT.

EVICTION POLICY: If you are evicted for any reason, you will not be issued a refund due to our inability to rerent that time slot on such short notice. If we happen to be able to rerent the unit for the remaining time period of your original booking, you might qualify for a partial refund but it is highly unlikely we can rebook on such short notice.
You will not be issued a refund at all of your rental fee or any deposits if we have any suspicion your party has caused damage to the property until we enter the premises and have it evaluated by a professional, estimated cost of damages and the damage has been satisfactorily fixed. If the remaining time of your booked stay is needed to repair such damages before future guest arrive, you will not be issued a refund at all.
