Cleaning. There is no cleaning, linen, or trash service at the cabin. Before you leave you are responsible to complete a thorough cleaning, using the checklist in the cabin, and take home all food and trash, except you may leave items on the staples list. We have bears: Leaving trash, food, or things dirty could result in a bear breaking in, causing expensive damage that you will be liable for.
Damage. A cleaning and/or damage fee may be assessed if things are not found to be clean and in good order by the next guest. If at checkin anything is broken or not clean, please let us know immediately using the landline at the cabin (number to be provided soon).
