Clean up after yourself: Please clean up any mess that you might make, particularly in the kitchen. This includes washing all of your dishes/ pots/ pans and wiping down your food prep. areas.

No food or oil down sink drain: The house is on septic and has no kitchen garbage disposal. Please empty food contents and oils into trash before rinsing or washing dishes / pots / pans.

No bleach or harsh chemicals down drain: The house is still on septic, therefore placing any bleach and/ or harsh chemicals down the sink or shower drains destroy the bacterial / enzyme decay process in the septic holding tank.

Furniture Movement / Wall Decor: Please do not take any pictures or wall hangings off of our walls or put anything on our walls with tacks or nails or any other adhesive that may damage our paint. Moving furniture in a very limited way is okay, but generally speaking, the house must be used as is unless special exception is sought by permission from the Lodge House manager (generally given to large group/event rentals).
