General Information

Spring – Fall we have weekly lawn maintenance, generally on Fridays. Automatic sprinklers in back yard are scheduled to water lawn nightly. Please don’t leave anything out on the grass that you would not want to getting wet.

During the winter months we have contracted with a local snow removal company that will be plowing the driving and walkways whenever the snow accumulation exceeds 2″.

Trash service is Fridays. Thursday evenings if you don’t mind please take both trash and recycle bin to the road.

We reserve the right to perform other necessary maintenance with notice.

Please remember that this is a lakefront home in northern Michigan. With this comes all of the native critters that live amongst us in this area. There will be no refunds for sightings of pests, insects, wildlife and other native animals for this area inside or outside the residence.

Pet Policy

Please inform us upon booking of your pets. No more than 2 pets on the premises. There is a $150 non refundable deposit. If we are not notified of a pet(s) prior to the stay a $150 flat fee will be expected when invoiced.

No other pets allowed, only the pets owned by the person whose name is on the lease and were included in the agreement. Please be considerate of your neighbors and not allow your pets to be outside creating noise or damage.

You are expected to clean up the yard of pet waste and dispose of properly in plastic bags and then put in the outside trash bins. There will be a $75 fee for any pet waste not disposed of properly.

Service Animals

It is our pleasure to accept your service dog. Prior to booking please answer the following questions legally allowed by the ADA regarding your service dog.

1. Is the dog a service animal required because of a disability?
2. What work or task has the dog been trained to perform?

We do not charge extra for a service dog, nor do we increase the security deposit. Guest remains liable for any and all damage caused by people or dogs. You are still responsible for removing pet waste from the yard and disposing of it properly.

Under the ADA, service animals must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered, unless these devices interfere with the service animal’s work or the individual’s disability prevents using these devices. In that case, the individual must maintain control of the animal through voice, signal, or other effective controls. The animal must be under control of the handler at all times and never left alone at any time. The property is equipped with Exterior Cameras and this can be verified.

If we discover a guest has misrepresented a pet as a service animal, we reserve the right to seek financial restitution, report fraudulent claims to government authorities and to evict the guest(s) without further notice. In the latter case, there will be no right to a refund for unused rent.
