13. Housekeeping: There is no daily housekeeping service, but is available at an additional cost. While linens and bath towels are included in the unit, daily maid service is not included in the rental rate. We suggest you bring beach towels for the hot tub since towels are not provided for hot tub use. We do not permit towels or linens to be taken from the units.


14. Hot Tub: No children are allowed in without direct adult supervision. Intoxicated individuals are not allowed to use the hot tub. When using the hot tub, remember there is a certain health risk associated with this facility. Use at your own risk. Our housekeepers sanitize, refill and replenish chemicals in the tub prior to your arrival. DO NOT STAND ON THE HOT TUB COVERS. Hot tub covers are for insulation purposes and are not designed to support a person or persons. They will break and you may be charged for replacement. Remember when not using the hot tub, leave cover on so hot tub will stay warm.


15. Water and Septic: The property is on a well and septic systems. The septic system is very effective; however, it will clog up if improper material is flushed. DO NOT FLUSH anything other than toilet paper. No feminine products should be flushed at any time. If it is found that feminine products have been flushed and clog the septic system, you could be charged damages for repair of the system.


16. Storms: No refunds will be given for storms. Mountain roads can be curvy and steep. Gravel drives are well maintained; however, we highly recommend four wheel drive and/or chains during the snow months. We do not refund due to road conditions
