home is privately owned. Although each meets our basic inventory
requirements, each is furnished and decorated according to the Owner’s
individual taste. Neither Lake Country Vacation Rentals nor the Owner of
the rental home is responsible for providing any additional furnishings or
equipment not available presently in the rental property. Please refer to
specifics for the following:
Interior fireplaces are only allowed to be used October through March.
Under no circumstances are fireplaces to be used while the air-conditioning
is running. Never burn
paper or other trash in an interior fireplace. Dampers must be open while
wood-burning fireplace is used. Gas logs may not require opening of
damper. Check the specifics for your rental home. Failure to adhere to this
policy will result in charges to the security and/or cleaning deposit.
Some rental homes offer an outdoor fire pit. Please make sure that only
wood is burned and the fire is contained to the pit. You will be expected
to clean your debris and trash from in and around the outdoor fire pit,
prior to your departure. NEVER leave fire unattended and do not over-build
to cause flames or smoke to intrude on neighboring property. Outdoor fires
are not permitted during "burning bans" as per local fire authorities.
Hot Tubs are cleaned and serviced prior to your arrival. Use of hot tubs is
strongly discouraged from Memorial Day to Labor Day due to warm summer
temperatures. Children under the age of 12 are NOT PERMITTED in a hot
tub and oils or other substances should never be admitted to the water.
Covers must be on the hot tub when not in use and under no circumstance
should you sit or stand on the hot tub cover. Any damages and or extra
cleaning beyond normal occurring as a result of your occupancy will be
charged to your cleaning and/or security deposit.
Charcoal Grills: Gas
and charcoal grills have been increasingly difficult to maintain due to
abuse and failure to clean by previous tenants. As such, a $50.00 fee is
now imposed on any tenant who does not properly clean a grill prior to
departure. If you run out of bottled gas for your grill, please notify the
office immediately and a replacement tank will be delivered at no charge to
you, within 24 hours of notification.
Electronics and Phones:
Although every effort will be made to ensure all electronics are working
properly, Lake Country Vacation Rentals will not be responsible for any
equipment malfunction during your stay. Thunderstorms are common during the
summer months which can cause satellite, cable and phone disruption. Please
unplug television sets during an electrical storm.
homeowners provide telephones for your convenience and safety. Most are
equipped with blocks to prevent long distance calls without the use of a
calling card. In no event should tenant or guests charge or accept a long
distance call on the rental home telephone. A $20 collection fee will be
added to any toll call that appears on the owner's bill for the dates of
occupancy and will be deducted from your security deposit, or charged to the
credit card on file. Do not move stereo, television, DVR or DVD or other
equipment from room to room and do not attempt to make any repairs. Report
malfunction immediately to the LCVR main office.
Re-arranging of furnishings is not allowed. See additional information in
2013 Security, Cleaning and Pet Deposit Information.
Tables: Some rental
homes offer the use of one or multiple game tables such as billiards, table
tennis, air hockey, foosball, etc. You will be responsible for the care of
these during your stay. Do not misuse, stand, or sit on any game table.
Use only as intended. Damage occurring as a result of your occupancy, will
result in charges to your security deposit. Report any broken, damaged or
missing items immediately to Lake Country Vacation Rentals.
Motorized and/or non-motorized boats may be included
in your rental home. You must read and agree to the following terms and
conditions outlined in
2013 Boat Policies for Vacation
Rental Homes. If you plan to bring a boat,
