Information Guide: We have assembled a binder with information about the fun activities, restaurants, places to visit based on our own experiences. This binder also tells you all about the cabin and how everything works. We will meet you at the cabin to make sure the accommodations are what you expected and to answer any questions you might have about the area or our cabin.
Dine in our Dine out: Many of our guests think they have to dine out all the time until they realize they would rather stay home at our cabin for many meals and just relax. The cabin has been our second home for years so it is equipped with everything you need to make as many meals as you like. It does not have a dish washer or garbage disposal as we felt that they did not belong in a rustic in the woods cabin.
Our Pet Policy: Many of our guest like to travel with their pets. We welcome pets but have learned some people over extend that welcome. We have had some trouble with mulitple large dogs that are not controlled by their owner. There are many places in the great out of doors for dogs to get very dirty. After one guest left we were cleaning up the cabin for an entire day because of the dirt, silt, hairs and stuff we could not even identify. We have had to modify our pet policy. If you bring a large dog or dogs, we would prefer that they be kennelled when left alone in the cabin. Small dogs never seems to be a problem as they do not wander off into the woods getting covered with 'who knows what'. If you bring a large dog that you cannot or do not wish to control, & you do not clean up after the mess it makes, we will have to charge you an extra cleaning fee or even damage charges. We have learned from our experience that large out of control dogs can actually cause damage to our nice clean cabin.
