 We are on a sewage grinder pump and nothing can go in except septic approved toilet paper.

You will need to bring your own bath and beach towels unless arranged prior to check-in. Kitchen linens are provided. 


Please do not adjust the temperatures of the refrigerators. If you turn them too cold, they will freeze up. Please allow the refrigerators to cool your warm food at least 24 hours before calling us with problems.  This is a natural adjustment when putting room temp food in a fridge.

  • Use precaution when using the fire ring at the stream.  Keep a bucket of water nearby to put out the fire after use. Fires may be restricted from time to time.  Please check prior to arrival.

  • Camping in tents are allowed on the lawns.  We have to keep watering the lawns during your stay in order to keep the lawns looking this green.   We try to water areas that you use after dark and areas that you normally don’t use during the day.



  • Please take special precaution if your young children are sleeping on any mattress that the mattresses do not get soiled or wet. Should an accident occur, please contact property manager as soon as possible. All the beds have clean sheets. 

  • We suggest you bring sleeping bags for the ones who want to sleep on the floor and those who will be sleeping on the twin & Queen sofa in the living room.
