Provided there are no other guests scheduled for the nights before or after your stay, we can be flexible with your check-in and check-out times.

A fully refundable security deposit is required on all reservations in order to protect owners from property damage. The deposit amount can be found on the rates/payment page near the property's price. Upon checkout, the property is inspected for damages. Any damages that are less than the security deposit shall be deducted from the security deposit. Any damages in excess of the security deposit are the guest's responsibility and must be paid within 10 days from departure. The Security deposit, minus any damage fees, shall be refunded to you within 14 days of your departure.
You will be responsible for leaving the cabin in good condition at checkout. Please remember that you are staying in a privately owned “cabin”; please treat it as you would want someone to treat your home. If accommodations are left damaged or unusually messy (such as unwashed dishes, stains on the furniture or carpet, or additional check out instructions not completed), the additional housekeeping charges will be deducted from your security deposit.
