Extreme weather situations can cause long term television interruptions. There will be no rebates for television interruptions. Properties DO NOT have WiFi unless specifically advertised as such.

Cold Spells and Heat Waves
During the winter months is not uncommon to see temperatures below zero, the furnaces are running at their maximum and the thermostat may not reach higher than 62 degrees. During the summer months, temperatures may reach 90+ degrees. Units are not equipped with air conditioners. On these days we recommend a local pool, the lake and keeping shades/blinds closed.

Private hot tubs are equipped with directions, please read carefully. When hot tubs are not in use the cover must be on to ensure the temperature is maintained.

Fireplaces
Fireplaces are hazardous if improperly used. Make sure the flue (damper) is open to allow smoke to go up the chimney rather than into the unit. You can be sure the flu is open by looking up the chimney, prior to building a fire. Keep glass doors open and screens shut to protect from carpet burns and possible fire. Do not remove ashes from the fireplace! When the fireplace is not in use be sure to close the flue (damper). If left open snow and rain or smoke from other units may come in.

Furnishings
Units are equipped with basic items such as pillows, blankets, bedspreads, pots, pans, glasses, dishes, flatware, cooking utensils, coffeemaker, toaster, etc. Please return these items to their proper place. If you find your rental unit is not equipped with these standard features, please notify our office. Please do not rearrange the furnishings. Please make sure all dishes are cleaned well prior to putting them back in the cabinets.
