My Rates ๐ŸŒท
I don't charge extra for Weekend Nights, nor Holidays.
I do have a standard Two night minimum all year, and Three night minimum during Peak Summer and Holidays.
My standard rate is for Two People. My theory is that two
shouldn't pay for four. So, I simply add on for over two, and hold capacity at four. The cottage is an original summer vacation home. It's not huge, fits four well. And the septic is not built for more :). For those that are septic familiar, it's an expensive but necessary part. I thus strive to avoid damage and repairs.

I Attempt to tell you just about everything, anything I can to familiarize my guests with what the property and area has.

The VRBO App on my page lists eateries, activities. Lists of services, grocery stores - one mile from the hose:) and such. Places change of course, I attempt to keep up...but sometimes fail. If it's not on my list, then I find that service, or quality is lacking. There is also a folder and business cards/directions at the cottage.

There are Actually TWO Full acres here. I live on the property as well. In my own home, my own gardens and such. I designed the second home to be separate, not look directly into the existing cottage. I have gently separated the two homes, with their own fenced yards for dogs. The property is FULLY Fenced....on every the gate at the driveway is closed, it's a dog heaven. I have two dogs myself; A rescue Shepard Mix and a younger Golden (updated 1/2017), both boys. Their pics are on the photo page. Thus our pet rules for those who visit. For those of you who are not visiting with dogs, Please respect that there are resident dogs. They are friendly. Love to visit and sit with you for sunset, morning java...but somehow they do get "it" and leave those folks alone who are not dog interested.
Not every VRBO property is for everyone. *** This is the beauty in VacationRentalsByOwner - VRBO
I try to provide a fun different experience, with gardens, dog wash, games, garden fireplace, lots of seating, changes each season.
