Can I pick up keys early and wait until check-in time to enter the house?
No. We are happy to provide keys once your property is ready, but are unable to do so before that time.

Can I check in early or check out late?
We cannot guarantee an early check-in or late check-out prior to your stay, but you are welcome to inquire about its availability. Please check the day of arrival for availability and pricing.

What if I am traveling in the evening? Do I have to pick up keys before 5 p.m.?
No. We will email your check in informationl.

How do I find out about road conditions?
Check for updated highway conditions, chain controls, and closures. Or you can call 800-427-7623. Google Maps is also an excellent real-time trip planner in case of delays. Always be prepared for hazardous winter driving conditions by stocking your vehicle with food, water, sleeping bag, and/or a warm blanket, shovel, chains, and a full tank of gas. A four-wheel-drive car is good too.

Does my house rental have snow removal?
Yes, all of our rental properties houses have snowplowing contracts. Please be aware there may be delays during storms. Your entryway is shoveled by our team prior to arrival, but this area is your responsibility once you check-in. We make every effort to clear steps and entries, but during large storm cycles, it is not always possible.

What amenities are included in my rental?
We provide a starter set of paper products and some soap. We stock each property with linens for each bed, and bath towels to match the vacation rental occupancy. For a large group or longer stay, please be prepared to purchase or bring your own supplies. We recommend bringing extra towels from home if you plan to use the hot tub or spend time at the beach.

Can I clean the property myself and not pay the cleaning fee?
We have professional cleaning crews who clean and care for the properties prior to arrival. We do not waive the cleaning fee.

Is there a daily housekeeping service?
Daily housekeeping is not included in your rental rate but may be available for an additional fee. Please ask us if you'd like to add additional cleaning services.

Does my house have a slow cooker/juicer/espresso maker/rice maker, etc?
Each house has basic cookware and small appliances. If you need a specific small kitchen appliance, please bring it from home.
