This is a family house that means a great deal to us.
Our most important rule is that you treat it with respect, and leave it as clean as you found it.
The cleaning fee will cover, vacuuming, cleaning bathrooms, etc.
All beds that were used should be stripped and the bedding washed. (If you are leaving early, please at least strip the beds and start the wash, as there is limited time for the cleaning person to do everything before the next guest arrives)
The kitchen should be cleaned, dishes done and put away. Again, if leaving early at least please start the dishwasher.
Please do not leave food for others.
The trash should be bagged and brought to the barn, it will be picked up there weekly.
If you have used the heat, please turn it all the down or OFF before leaving.
