Please Wait a Moment

Last Day Departure Checklist

Check out time is 10:00 AM.  If no prior arrangements have been made for a late checkout, you may be charged to cover the extra time housekeeping must wait.   Our cleaners are one a tight schedule and we most likely have new guests coming in.

  • Please wash all dirty dishes, empty the dishwasher and put them back where you found them.
  • Empty refrigerator and freezer. Place the contents of the refrigerator and freezer (except fish remains) in the outside garbage receptacles.  It is OK to leave unopened items in the refrigerator for housekeeping.
  • Take out the garbage. Before you leave please empty all garbage into the dumpster or provided trash cans and ensure the lid is securely locked to keep out wild animals.
  • Please do not make up the beds you or your guests use at departure so our cleaning crews know what sheets need to be changed.
  • Put things back where they were when you arrived, especially furniture.
  • If your cabin has a wood fireplace make sure the coals are completely out and the damper is closed.  If your cabin has a gas fireplace be sure it is turned off.
  • Check to be sure you are taking all your belongings with you.
  • Please sign our guest journal and share your favorite experiences and memories made at our home.  Be sure to share great places in town to eat, visit and enjoy for our future guests (and us)!
  • Turn off all lights.
  • Set the thermostats. 
    • Upon departure in the fall winter, and spring set both thermostats to Heat and to 60. (Do Not Turn Off Heat In The Winter)
    • Upon departure in the summer set the thermostats Cool and to “78”. 
  • Check and lock all the exterior entry doors and windows. 
  • If your cabin has a key, put the key back in the lock box and lock it.  If your dumpster is equipped with a lock, make sure the dumpster key is put back and the dumpster is closed and locked.  Bears will get in if you don’t.
  • To help us keep the house in great condition, please send an email of anything in the house that needs attention or repair or that your party broke to: (

Please send us an email with suggestions about your stay and include things that we can share with future guests.  We’ll incorporate your suggestions in our Guest Welcome book. Your feedback is important to us.
