Échanges avec les voyageurs
We try to introduce ourselves to first time guests - not a requirement.
We welcome calls or concerns any time. We will not normally engage a guest at any time during their visit. We will say hello if we see them on the beach.
Vacuum cleaner located in the utility room and broom, dust pan and mop behind the utility room door.
The cottage is on a septic tank and we ask that you not put grease and food solids down the drain. Please use a sink strainer when ever possible. Thanks!
You are welcomed guests we invite into our home.
No smoking. Please no cooking of fish inside the cottage! A trash container is provided near the garage. Please secure the lid -raccoons. Please respect locked doors, secured cupboards, garage, secretaries and hutches. Many small children like to explore and the locks protect precious items until we return.
If your car leaks fluids, do not park on the pavers. Please park off road to the right as you face the street. It is impossible to remove oil from the pavers in the driveway.
My wife collects old books. You are welcome to read them. Many have fragile backs!
Please watch young children. It only takes a moment for them to walk down the deck steps and walk on the dock. Please don't rent this cottage if you feel there may be a time when children are unsupervised.
At the end of your stay, please wash your dishes. Pull used sheets off the beds and place them in the laundry room.
Depending on the season the thermostats are preset for comfortable heating. Each bedroom has its own window air conditioner. The wall thermostats only control the heat and not air conditioning. There may be times where the thermostat is in the 'middle off setting at the bottom of the thermostat. If you desire heat move this switch to 'heat'.
We ask if it is raining or humid outside that you keep the outside doors and windows closed and use the air conditioners. This prevents mold from getting a start.
We ask that you do not use the wood burning stove. It is complicated, it heats water and temperatures can get out of hand.
Please respect the property boundary. Our neighbors have asked that we not use their playground equipment or walk on or fish from their dock.
If you plant to get noisy please take that to the beach on Lake Michigan and respect your local neighbors.
If you have questions or any problem our house managers live just up the street. They can be reached at (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN).
