    • Note: Entire Apple Fest reservation balance must be paid in full by August 31st

One-night stays can be reserved when available as determined by management.

CHECK-IN AND CHECK-OUT Check-in is 4:00 PM and Check-out is 10:00 AM.

No exceptions allowed during high-season (mid-May thru Oct). Late check-outs will be charged a minimum of $25 for any portion of an hour. Flexibility may be allowed only during low-season with approval.

FOR LATE ARRIVALS/CHECK-INS AFTER 7:00 pm: When you arrive at the Office, you will find an envelope at the front door labeled with your name and Cottage #. Enclosed you will find all information needed for your arrival.

BALANCE IS DUE AT CHECK-IN by credit card or cash only. Even if paying in cash, ALL guests will be required to present a valid credit/debit card upon check-in. No personal checks will be accepted at time of arrival.

OCCUPANCY There is a $40/night charge for each additional guest as allowed per Cottage occupancies.

Occupancy limits include children and cannot be exceeded for any reason other than an infant (under 1 yr). Exceeding the maximum specified occupancy violates health and fire codes, and will result in termination of rental without refund.

Use of pull-out sleepers/daybed is available upon request. If sleeper bedding is needed, you must request at time of reservation, and a one-time charge of $5(+tax) will be added.

CANCELLATIONS For cancellations more than 14 days prior to arrival, the deposit will be refunded less the cancellation fee ($25) per Cottage. The deposit is non-refundable for cancellations within 14 days of arrival unless all of your reservation dates are filled. Then the deposit can be refunded, less the cancellation fee. If you shorten your reserved stay, there will be no refund for the unused portion of the reservation. “No-shows” will be responsible for payment in full for the entire reservation.

APPLE FEST CANCELLATIONS: Entire reservation must be paid in full by August 31st and is non-refundable for cancellations thereafter.

The Cancellation Fee is $25.00 per Cottage reserved.

A gift certificate/credit for a future stay in the amount of the deposit may be issued due to inclement winter weather that results in hazardous road conditions. Closure of the Ice Caves, the Ice Road, or cancellation of other events are not considered as a reason for a refund.

NO SMOKING A cleaning fee of up to $500.00 will be charged if there is evidence of smoking inside Cottages.

NO PETS permitted on property or inside Cottages. A cleaning fee of up to $500.00 will be charged along with termination of rental with no refund.

NO COOKING is allowed inside Jacuzzi Cottages except microwave. For the convenience of home-cooking during your getaway, please consider a Cottage with kitchen.

NO CHILDREN ARE ALLOWED IN JACUZZI COTTAGES (with exception of an infant).

NO TENTS or additional sleeping facilities are permitted on property.

DAMAGES & CLEANING Any damages incurred, missing items, or **excessive cleaning discovered/required after check-out will be charged to your final bill at the discretion of the Owners.

Each kitchen/kitchenette is equipped appropriately for its Cottage. DO NOT mix dishes/utensils with other cottages as **excessive cleaning charges will apply. Damage to the cottage, towels, bedding, furniture, and property, missing items, or **excessive cleaning required includes, but not limited to, dirty dishes (if dishwasher is provided), displaced dishes/furnishings (if you move dishes or furniture, please move them back!), confetti/glitter (yes, glitter!), and trash & cigarette butts that have been littered – charges will be added to your final bill at the discretion of the Owners.

We are not responsible for items lost or left behind but we will always do our best to recover and return items at guest’s expense (min $15).

ASSIGNMENT We reserve the right to re-assign accommodations of the same-size Cottage or larger with the same basic amenities or upgrade without notice at no additional charge.

ACCEPTANCE We reserve the right to change the Policies at any time.
