THERE IS NO SMOKING ALLOWED IN THE COTTAGE AT ANY TIME. There is an immediate $250 fine imposed and taken from the damage deposit for any evidence of this violation.

There are strict policies regarding smoking and the disposal of cigarettes. You must dispose of any cigarette butts or smoking debris in a sealed heat -proof container in a safe area away from any fire hazard. Even a tiny spark or heat from a burning ember can start a forest fire in our often-dry natural setting. Any smoking debris found on or around the natural setting of the cottage will result in loss of damage deposit.
USE OF CANDLES:
We do not allow use of flame burning candles in the cottage. However we do have a good supply of the flameless battery operated candles that provide an excellent atmosphere. Please remember to turn them off when not required.
Using the facilities provided to you with your rental of the cottage is at your own risk. The renter assumes all responsibility for their own safety and the safety of all minors in their care while partaking in any water activities at the cottage or in using any of the common property.
