Cancellation Policy

If a guest is unable to stay for whatever reason, deposit and full payment is returned as long as it is outside the 60 day time of arrival. Between 60 and 30 days only 50% and your security deposit is refundable. Within 30 days of your reservation, only the $100 security deposit is refundable.

We would be happy to rebook you at no cost for a comparable night stay (weekday for weekday, holiday for holiday, etc).  We can also transfer the reservation to someone else on your behalf.  Simply call Brianne at (765) 205-2488.

Security Deposit Policy

We do require a $100 security deposit.  This is fully refundable, and within 7 days of check out.

Security Deposit is fully refundable if reservation is cancelled at any time.  

Security Deposit is fully refundable if cabin is left in good condition.

Security Deposit is partially refundable if items on exit list are not completed, the condition of cabin is not in satisfactory condition, or if there are broken items.  Some examples we’ve found and have had to charge for have been excessive dog hair, hair in shower drains, feminine products in septic tanks and trash left outside overnight.  

Rental Agreement- you’ll get an electronic copy of this to sign!

• The cabins are on delicate septic systems. The septic systems are very effective; however, it will clog up if improper material is flushed. Do not flush anything other than toilet paper. No feminine products or diapers can be flushed at anytime. If it is found that feminine products or diapers have been flushed and clog the septic system, you will be charged the damages of the documented cost of repairs. This is inspected following checkout.

• Smoking is not allowed inside the cabins. Please dispose of cigarette butts in the ashtrays outside. Smoking inside the cabin is subject to a $250 cleaning fee.  And please don’t leave your butts on the ground, we love our property.

• Garbage must be brought to the green cans, located at the top of the property near the road.  There are hungry critters in the woods and they will dig through some bags!  If we find trash around the cabin, it will be $50 deducted from your security deposit.

• Please be conscious of other guests on the property; the cabins’ quiet hours are from 10:00 p.m. – 8:00 a.m.  If you’ve reserved the whole place, have at it! 

• We encourage you to bring your boat! However, trailers and/or boats are not permitted to be towed past the landing of the property. We have ample trailer parking at the landing. Give us a call and we can coordinate trailer parking and boat launching with you.

• Pets are permitted, please let us know ahead of time. Dogs must be leashed while around the cabins, as there may be other dogs and guests staying with us at the same time.  Please do your best to keep them off the furniture. Also, please use your best judgment with poop–if it’s on a trail, or around the cabin, grab it.  If doggo poops in the woods, let it ride.  Dogs love the freedom of forest poops.  

• There is no daily housekeeping service. While linens and bath towels are included in the cabins, daily maid service is not included in the rental rate. Please do not remove towels or linens from the cabins, please bring beach towels for swimming and boating.
