Damage Protection / Security Deposit Protector Policy
Guests are responsible for any damage they may cause during their stay. We require the purchase of a non-refundable accidental rental damage insurance policy for groups.  This policy offers from $1,500 to 10,000 dollars of coverage for accidental damage to the vacation cabin or cottage during your stay depending on the policy coverage purchased.  Policy details and coverage are detailed separately and should be reviewed prior to purchase. The group damage insurance policy is available at a very nominal cost, and we believe is a better alternative to a security deposit.  

Liability is not limited to the policy coverage.  If extensive damage is caused by the guests or their invites to any part of the rental property exceeds the amount of the damage protection policy, guest  understands and agrees that they are responsible to pay the additional cost for replacement or repair of damaged items.  
Pets are welcome in Pet Friendly cabins only.
