Interaction with guests
Via messaging and phone only....occasionally you may see me in the neighborhood.
Other things to note
Please use the wood stove wisely and try not to burn more wood than necessary. I use the woodstove as my main heating source but the cabin is also equipped with central heat and air. Bring your own charcoal for the grill.
***Make sure the window blinds are down with strings loose before opening the windows!
I have another listing through airbnb in the same neighborhood with no houses in between so if you have a big group it would be ideal to book both cabins.......the other listing is "retro-modern in the woods"
Absolutely no smoking.
Sorry, no pets.
No shooting of guns....quit neighborhood.
Reminder: checkin is at 4 pm or later. Checkout is noon.... courtesy and respect for the neighbors and my cabin is expected....peace and tranquility is what we all seek when in the woods!
Just please tread lightly inside the cabin......best to leave boots outside.....bring cozy slippers!
Firewood is provided but bring your own axe, kindling, paper and or fire starter logs!
Upon departure, please tidy up the place a bit and above all else, clean the kitchen well and take out all trash because it may be a few days before the cabin is attended to......much appreciated! The dump is just north on hwy 181.... It would be great if you took your own trash upon departure. Dump is closed on Wednesday and Sunday.
*the wifi is provided thru a satellite which is expensive and slower than most people are accustomed too. It's good for basic browsing and emails but do not expect to stream videos and such!
There is a book on the kitchen table which contains all pertinent info and instructions. Please read through this upon arrival.
*Insurance disclaimer: by booking this cabin through airbnb the renter agrees to assume all risks associated with staying at the property.
