What if I am bringing my pet(s), what is expected of me?
We want to remain a pet friendly company and that requires your help. Bringing your pet requires you and your veterinarian to complete a simple form proving that your pet is up to date on all immunizations and is currently and has been (for at least 2 months prior to your visit) on a flea control program. There is a nonrefundable Pet Fee. Our region has other dogs in the area. You must have your dog under your control at all times. Please do not leave your pet alone in the house all day. There are doggie day-care services in our area, and we are happy to help you find one if need be.
Do I need to bring linen?
All cottages will have blankets and pillows as well as quilts/bedspreads. None of the cottages provide beach towels. You should plan to bring those.
rvice provides a set of sheets and one bath, one hand, one face cloth per person as well as a bath mat for each bathroom. Linens must be ordered 2 weeks in advance. Duck Inn includes linens.
*No smoking, outdoor fires and/or fireworks are allowed inside or outside this Property. This wonderful house sits among the pines and fire danger is always of utmost concern. If evidence of smoking is found, it will result in a cleaning fee/penalty and possible eviction without refund. Use of Fires or Fireworks will result in termination of your Rental Agreement without refund.
Are guests responsible for bringing/filling the propane tanks on gas grills?
No, if you find your tank is empty, please call the office and we will do an exchange for you. Most owners with gas grills leave a spare tank. If you need to hook up the spare tank, let us know so we can exchange the empty one.
Are guests responsible for bringing/providing wood for the fireplace or wood stove?
Some owners provide wood at the beginning of the season and when it is gone it is gone; others supply it for the entire season; while others do not supply it all. If you have a question about this, please call the office. Wood is readily available throughout the area should you need to purchase it.
What is expected of me when I leave?
We understand you are on vacation and the last thing you will want to do is clean extensively before you leave. What we ask is that you take care of and respect this private family home as if it were your own and leave it the way you found it. We expect you to leave the home and yard free of clutter and trash, the dishes clean and put away and all personal belongings removed including any open food items. (You can leave unopened, non-perishable pantry items. in the brown bags provided. We will donate this food to the local food pantry.) Our cleaners will sanitize the kitchen and bathroom and mop all the floors, freshen the windows and fluff the pillows.
For an additional fee, we offer Departure (End) Cleaning, Mid-Week or Mid-Stay `fluff` as well as Chambermaid Services. Please reserve these services in advance of your arrival to help us with staffing needs. Prices vary depending on the size and complexity of the house.
