Never use gasoline or kerosene to start a fire or barbecue grill. Never place non-burnable items such as glass bottles and aluminum beverage cans in a campfire ring. Such items pose a safety threat to both you and the next visitors who use this campfire ring. Thank you for properly disposing of glass and other non-burnable items in a trash receptacle. The renter or renters shall be held liable or responsible for any damages or injuries resulting from violating these fire safety rules.

TVs: Prior to your arrival we inspect each cabin and turn on TVs to ensure they are on the correct settings. Cabins with Direct TV will typically operate on the HDMI 1 setting. If TV settings are tampered with and the TV is not working properly, we will correct the settings as soon as possible. Most of our cabins have Smart TVs and we are utilizing Roku and other devices on older TVs to provide Streaming capabilities. You may log in to your Netflix and other Steaming Apps or access one of the free streaming apps.
Safety – There are many rules on hot tubs and guests should review general guidelines for their age, sex and medical condition before they use the hot tub.

Cleaning and Using The Hot Tub: All hot tubs are drained and cleaned after each guest visit. Once hot tubs have been filled, it will take 3 to 4 hours to fully heat the water. To keep check-ins as early as possible your hot tub water may not be at desired temperature upon your arrival. Please do not adjust the hot tub settings as they are set properly after cleaning. You can monitor the temperature and it will be rising as the water in the tub heats. If no temperature rises occur after 30 minutes, then please call us at 580.306.6700.
