This is an abbreviate form to give general information. Signed agreement supersedes this document.
1. Check-in/Check-out: Check-in time is 4:00pm and check-out time is 11:00am. It is critical to adhere to the check-in/check-out times so the cabins can be prepared for the next guest. Late check-out is not acceptable and will result in a charge of one additional night without the benefit of a stay.
2. Open Flames: Absolutely no candles or smoking inside the cabin.
3. Pets and service animals: Not permitted in the cabin. However there is no guarantee an unauthorized animal has not been in the cabin. Animals in the cabin will result in a $500 fee billed to the credit card or file. If a card is not on file, guest agrees to pay fee via another acceptable method.
4. Cancellation Policy: Please note that we are not a hotel but a small family owned vacation rental company and cannot easily write off lost income from cancellations, as can large hotels. Once you have reserved the cabin it is taken off the availability list and all inquiries for that period are turned away. If you are concerned about the possibility of a last-minute cancellation, we strongly suggest that you take responsibility for this risk and obtain trip cancellation / interruption insurance. We do not refund for inclement weather, bad road conditions in the mountains or in the valleys (12 months a year), acts of Mother Nature, illness, or death in the family. Therefore trip insurance is recommended in the event a cancellation is necessary. Trip insurance is available through 3rd party companies.
Cancellation prior to 60 days upon arrival receives a full refund (less credit card fee and any other fees kept by an online listing company). Cancellation 60 days or closer to arrival forfeits all funds paid except cleaning fee.

In the unlikely event this occurs, the Guest shall have the right to either 1) accept one of the substitute properties offered by MRL or 2) cancel reservation and receive full refund of all deposit and rental fees paid (less credit card fee). No refunds will be given that exceed the price of the rental fee paid. There will no refunds given due to acts of God, weather related situations, nor mechanical or electrical failures.
17. Damage/Security Deposit: There is a cleaning/damage/security deposit of $250. Status of refund will be determined after guest’s departure. In the case of damages, theft, extra cleaning, lost key, items removed from one cabin to another, or extra guests or an animal, guest agrees to the financial responsibility and extra costs. Guest agrees to costs associated with damages including items stained by bodily fluids. Guest agrees that costs arising from the above circumstances may be charged on the guest’s credit card (or deposit) and not to dispute these charges in good faith.

If any drains are clogged during visit and require a plumber’s services the services will be arranged by the guest and cost will be borne by the guest.
18. Accidents: Accidents happen and we realize that some accidents are simply the cost of doing business. We would much rather have you let us know when an accident happens so that we can replace or repair the item than to have you not report it for fear of incurring a charge against your Damage/Security deposit.

We promise to be fair with you and ask that you report damages to us immediately.
