> Our cabins are on a ‘Friday to Friday’, one week rental period during the prime rental season (April - October). This cycle allows our cleaning and maintenance team an opportunity to clean the cabins and prepare the property from 12 Noon when guests check out, until check- in time at 5 PM.
Rental periods less than one week are permitted during the NON- prime rental season (weekends).
Note: late check outs or early check ins are by exception ONLY and may result in additional fees.
> The Hotdog Hideaway is on a well. The water is SAFE but doesn't taste that great. We encourage you to bring bottled water.

> DO NOT RINSE FOOD DOWN THE KITCHEN SINK. There is NOT a garbage disposal. Please put food waste in the trash or burn.

> Please help us reduce our footprint on the environment (laundry) If you do not intend to sleep in the other beds please do not lay on them, walk on them or allow pets and children to do the same. Per Michigan state sanitation requirements: If bed(s) are slept in or appear to have been, the sheets are required to be washed - we observe and follow these rules.

> The stairway to the loft is quite steep and must be TREATED LIKE A LADDER.
1. Use the hand rail at all times.
2. Descend the same way you went up - facing the stairs/ ladder.
3. Small children or elderly may need help AND supervision (Or should utilize other beds in the house).

> The Hotdog Hideaway has a small propane gas-log heater - which works well to take the chill from the air in the early fall or late spring. The cabin is NOT outfitted with a central heat system and is not suitable for rental during winter months.

> During the warmer seasons, if you have an outdoor fire please burn any paper waste like paper plates, cups, packaging or cardboard. DO NOT BURN OR ATTEMPT TO BURN ALUMINUM CANS AND GLASS BOTTLES. Also, please don't throw wet garbage on a dying fire on your way out the door on check-out day in a effort to clean up - someone will have to clean up what does not get consumed by the fire.
Seven day minimum during PRIME rental season (April through September). Check in is FRIDAY 5PM to FRIDAY @ 12 Noon. Otherwise 3 day minimum rental.
