# of Guests

There is a $25 per person, per night fee for guests staying over 20 people. Yes, we do have a 28 person max, but these fees cover the extra costs of cleaning, linen/towel washings, and wear & tear. Thank you for your understanding!

Important Notes

The cleaning fee is to prepare the home for your arrival. Including laundering of all beds, sanitation and disinfection of with shower, toilets, and floor mats, and laundering of towels all for every guest. The cleaning fee is covers the proper sanitation stands of COVID-19 for mopping and vacuuming floors, kitchens, and bathrooms. The cleaning fee also includes the organization of rooms and storage areas, inventory check, window cleanings, plus buying and stocking essential items for your stay.

The cleaning fee is NOT to clean up after you or any events you have on site. The cleaning fee does NOT cover to clean dirty dishes, stains, or other damages caused by you and your guests. Items left out from the Adventure Shed is also NOT covered by the cleaning fee.

Our cleaners typically only have 3-4 hours after drive time to clean the entire property, and a large property typically requires 2-4 people to clean in short of a window of time to keep the property up to our cleaning standard. We understand the cleaning fee is high, but it is a complete sanitation, disinfection, and organization done by a professional cleaning service. So please, upon check-out, do not leave the property in shambles “because you pay a cleaning fee”. You will incur additional charges if there are stains and messes beyond a standard cleaning time, if you break or damage items, or if you fail to return items you use back to the original storage areas. Our families put our heart and souls into our vacation rentals, PLEASE be respectful of the property.

We are still in the process of doing minor renovations and adding new photos as we continue to improve. The outside of the property does have some blemishes that we are repairing/fixing. Please do not blast us in a review because of this. We bought the property in early 2021 and did a TON of work on updates to amenities, and our fall 2021 project is to revamp the outdoor space. Including new deck/patios (once lumber becomes more available), siding, some lights/windows, and other items. The Lighthouse is NOT perfect. We are continuing to invest and improve the property. But it will be amazing for your family stay though!
