Any guest that exceeds this without permission from host, will be asked to leave the property with no refund. Please just be honest of your intentions, we are very easy to get along with :)

- Additional guests are not permitted to stay overnight in trailers, tents, boats or on air mattress. We do allow a 6th guest if it's an infant in a playpen.

- We have a narrow path that allows you to access the water for swimming and kayaking . The shore is VERY rocky and we highly recommend water shoes if you plan on swimming. We do have a water mat that you can swim out to.

- PETS:  We allow 1 dog only . No exceptions ( Sorry, NO PUPPIES!!) Your dog must be well behaved and friendly. We do not allow aggressive dogs on the property. There is an additional fee of $20 per night with a maximum charge of $200 per stay. Pets are not permitted on beds or furniture. Dogs must be LEASHED at all times and never at large on the property. Pets are never to be left behind at the cottage unsupervised.  Depending on your booking platform, you may not be able to add a pet to your reservation. In this case, please let us know you are brining a dog.

- We do have a security system at the cottage with 1 camera facing the driveway. We ask that our guests do not use the alarm panel during their stay. The driveway camera and panel are to secure our property between reservations when the home is vacant, and is in no way to invade our guests privacy.

- Mosquitoes and black fly activity can be extremely high from mid May-  August.  We do have bug zappers on the property but come prepared with bug spray! You have been warned !

- WINTER BOOKINGS/SNOW REMOVAL( Dec 1st-April 15th): We recommend only booking if you have a vehicle equipped with 4 wheel drive and winter tires. Our driveway is only plowed and walkways shovelled when snow exceeds 10cm, and this is not guaranteed before check in or check out. The cottage is outside city limits and the main roads are maintained by the CBRM and are usually not a priority.
