  1. Check-in time is 3 o'clock P.M. If you find that you are going to be very late arriving, please let us know.
  2. Check-out time is 10 o'clock A.M. Please try to be prompt. It really makes our lives a lot easier.
  3. Please try to leave the cottages in a condition similar to when you arrived.
  4. We allow pets - dogs (preferably one) not cats. Please clean up after them. They must be under control at all times. Pets are not allowed on the beach area. If you wish to take them in the water, feel free to take them off the boat ramp on the other side of the docks.
  5. We ask that parents be responsible for their children's safety and actions. We allow the children fairly liberal freedom as long as they are not destructive or bothersome to the other guests.
  6. We have a campfire almost every night. Since some of our guests do not have children with them, we think it only fair that children are quiet by 10 P.M. In that same regard, we would expect that those at the campfire would keep the noise level down aswell.
  7. We work very hard to keep the property looking nice. Our work is much easier if people pick up after themselves.
  8. We want your stay to be as enjoyable as possible. We want you to want to come back again. If there is anything bothering you or anything we can do to make your vacation more enjoyable please do not hesitate to ask any one of us. (We have only limited control over the weather)
