The following information will help you prepare for and plan your vacation. We ask that you take time to read all of the following policies and procedures before confirming your rental agreement. We also suggest you bring a copy on your trip, as it may help answer many of the questions you might have before, during and even after your visit.

The person that acknowledges and agrees to this rental agreement must be the same as the name on the credit card used for the reservation. The same person and credit card information will be secured by Turning Leaf Cabins for payment of any damages that may occur to the property by the guest(s). By checking the box that confirms you have read the policies and by providing your credit card information during the reservation process, you confirm that you are over 25 years of age.
After the agreed rental agreement is received we will contact you close to your arrival date to provide you with the necessary KEY CODES and directions. We must receive this agreement in order to complete and confirm your reservation. Your rental is NOT CONFIRMED until you agree to the terms, your credit card is charged and you receive confirmation from us.

Keys:  After your reservation is confirmed, we will contact you close to your arrival date with the code to the front gate lock box and additional code to the keyless deadbolt on the front door. Keys for the front gate shall remain inside the lockbox.  Please write down these codes so that you can access the property when you arrive.  Upon departure, you, the guest, shall be responsible for making sure that all windows and doors are closed and locked before you leave the premises. Failure to do so will forfeit your held security deposit. 

Security/Damage Deposit: A $250 security deposit will be held by Turning Leaf Cabins until a damage assessment has been performed after your departure. This deposit is NOT applied toward the rental price, and will be credited back to your card within 10 days after your departure if there are no damages or items missing.

Check–In / Check-Out : Check-in time is 3:00 PM. Guest(s) will have 1 hour to inspect the cabin and report any damage / broken objects in the cabin they feel they should not be liable for. After one hour, any damages in the cabin will be the full responsibility of the guest(s). Each cabin will be inspected after the guest(s) depart, and damages/lost items will be noted. You will be notified of a damaged/broken item that already exists in the cabin when you check-in if we are already aware of it.  Check–out time is 11:00 AM.
Late departures will result in your being charged for another day’s stay, or a minimum fine of $50.
No refunds will be given for early departures (such as should you find it necessary to leave earlier then your reserved departure date), for any reason, including weather and/or road conditions.

Cancellations: Your reservation is a contract between you and Turning Leaf Cabins that says we will hold this cabin and will not rent it out to anyone else for the time period you have reserved. Because of this, please keep in mind the following cancellation terms; any changes or cancellations to a reservation after a cabin has been reserved will result in a $50.00 change fee.  Cancellations occurring with more than 30 days notice will receive a full refund less the cancellation fee, those occurring 15 to 29 days a 50% refund, 0-14 days results in no refund. Only the guest named on the rental agreement may cancel or make changes to a reservation. A “no-show” is an automatic forfeiture of charges. We strongly recommend that whenever traveling, you purchase travel insurance to ease your mind in case of any unforeseeable cancellation issues.

Courtesy: Guest(s) understands that use of the premises shall not be such as to disturb or offend neighbors. Turning Leaf Cabins has the right to terminate this agreement and to ask disruptive guests to vacate the premises with no refund. Turning Leaf Cabins does enforce a minimum rental age of 25 and a photo ID is required upon arrival. Turning Leaf Cabins also reserves the right to refuse rental to any group.

Upon arrival, Turning Leaf Cabins recommends guests report any maintenance issues immediately. If there should be a problem, Turning Leaf Cabins will make every effort to correct it as soon as possible during regular business hours.

Bed linens and bath towels are not changed during your stay ,as well as bath soap, toilet tissue, paper towels and trash bags. No housekeeping is provided during the guest(s) stay until the time of check-out. 

Gas Fireplaces: Please use caution when in use as these give off a great deal of heat. Do not touch hot surfaces, place objects on top of, or close to gas fireplace as that could melt or ignite. Indoor fireplaces are to be used to create atmosphere and ambience only as all cabins have a furnace for heating purposes. For safety considerations with open gas flame – no indoor gas fireplaces should remain on while renters are asleep. Note: indoor fireplaces are available for use during cold season only.

Our cabins also include Direct TV for your enjoyment. Any pay-per-view movies or extra subscriptions ordered during the delineation of your stay will be charged to your credit card directly. These charges will occur when we receive our monthly statement from Direct TV.

Hot Tub Usage: Hot tubs will be inspected after each rental. Guests should shower before and after usage of the hot tub because some lotions, soaps, etc., can cause a skin rash when mixed with the hot tub chemicals. If any residue from such items as soaps, bath products, food, alcohol, oils, lotions, etc. is found in the tub, the guest will be charged a cleaning fee minimum of $100.00. Damage to any cover will result in a $500.00 charge. Covers should remain over the hot tub and on lifts at all times when not in use. Guest understands that there are health risks associated with the use of hot tubs and they agree to use them with discretion, at their sole responsibility, and by following any posted instructions. Hot tubs are not approved for use by minors! Proper use of hot tubs is monitored and water found below the line of hot tub filters and/or jets will be considered abuse and the renter will be fined accordingly for any damages. Hot tubs are expensive to repair please keep this in mind and follow all rules. Turning Leaf Cabins cleans and chemically sanitizes all hot tubs prior to each guest arrival; therefore, Turning Leaf Cabins assumes no responsibility for any occurrence associated with hot tub usage.
