House Rules and Guidebook

Before hitting Instant Book, please read and agree with the house rules. We don't have many, but they are important to us and will assure a happy visit for all.

The Little Blanco is a seasonal river, and sometimes dries up in prolonged periods of draught. If the river is very important to you, please check the status of the river before booking.

The Pecan Tree House comfortably sleeps four. Each of the two bedrooms has its own bathroom. The house is built tandem style. The guest room has a separate entrance, with access to the great room from the covered back porch, or through the master bedroom. We have a pull-out sofa in the living room, however, there is not a separate bathroom for these guests. For each guest above four, there is an additional $15 fee per night. Airbnb adds these fees when you book. (6 guests maximum.)

Check-In Window: 4:00-9:00 PM
Check-Out Time: 12pm (noon).

House Rules
- No smoking in the house.
- No guests beyond the number of people you booked (max 6).
- No hunting.
Please respect your safety, our neighbors’ peace, and our home.

Septic
Please flush only toilet paper.
No coffee grounds down the sink / disposal.

Dogs (If you are bringing a dog, please read this.)
We love dogs! You may bring up to three of your furry family members. The fee is $15 per dog per stay (not per night). Max three dogs. We will send you a request for the pet fee after you check out.
• If your dog gets dirty outside, please wash its paws outside on the porch using the paw cleaner and dog towels that we provide.
• If you allow your dogs on furniture, PLEASE first cover the furniture with the blankets we have provided in the basket in the living room.
• We supply biodegradable poop bags for dogs. We (and future guests) sincerely appreciate your picking up after your dog. Tie off the bag and place it in the outdoor garbage barrel, which is located in the square wooden enclosure at the bottom of the stairs that lead down from the center of the back porch.
• Keep in mind that our property is not fully fenced, and there are wild animals that dogs like to chase.

Check-Out
- Make sure to pack all your stuff!
- If you put dishes in the dishwasher, please run it before you leave. Detergent pods are beneath the sink.
- Don't worry about gathering up your sheets and towels. Simply leave them in place for us to wash.
- Please text us when you leave so we can begin cleaning for our next guests.

That's it. Pretty simple. If this all sounds good to you, go ahead and book.
