Fees & Deposits
Additional Rate Information
We always ask for a refundable $400 security deposit. Pets are an additional $50 each. To hold the week, I need half rent payment and a separate check for the security deposit. The second half of the rent will be due about 2 weeks prior to your trip.
We also do not have regular cleaners for the cottages. We have had poor luck finding someone in the past -it is a really small town. Although there are willing cleaners, there are few who have boats. We realize that this is a major inconvenience, so I have asked each group to thoroughly clean up after themselves by following the cleaning guidelines listed below. When we have ascertained that all is well after a stay, we return the security deposit AND $100 of the rent to compensate the group for the inconvenience. This has worked well for us to date, and it’s really not that hard to do.
Our cottage is available for partial week reservations (3 nights minimum) up to 7 days in advance for Off season weeks. The rates for 3, 4 and 5 night stays are 60%, 75% and 90% of the non-discounted weekly rate respectively. (Security Deposit and Pet Fees remain the same) The rate for 6 nights is the same as the weekly rate.
Cottage cleaning guidelines:
1. Sweep or dry mop all hardwood floors
2. Mop kitchen/bathroom floors. Clean basins and surfaces
3. Empty and make sure fridge and microwave are clean
4. Remove all trash from the premises
5. Please water my poor flowers!
6. Lock kayaks on dock
7. Lock all doors and leave key where you found it upon arrival.
Cleaning supplies can be found under the kitchen sink, but you might want to bring cleaning rags, as those tend to get thrown away........
