You are staying in a winter wonderland – so there are some “Must-Do’s”!

Winter / Winter Weather:  Be careful!!!

The plows and snow removal come at all times of day or night in a storm.

  • You must move your car to allow the plows access every 24 hours when there has been enough snow to plow.  If not, you will get a sticker on your window and WILL be towed after 48 hours
    • If you do not have the parking pass with info to call – you will be towed
  • Please be aware and move your car if a plow comes and you are in their path.
  • The walkway & deck can get icy. BE CAREFUL
    • In/after a storm, we do have a service that comes at 4+” of snow to plow and shovel the walkway (not the deck)
    • Between their visits, you may encounter snow and need to shovel the deck and or walkway. The shovel is on the deck. Go to it and enjoy the experience! 
    • It can be icy everywhere – the steps, Deck, walkway, and driveway. 
  • Store Ski’s and boards on the rack outside near the gate – or on the balcony, but NOT inside please
  • Do not force deck to walkway gate open/closed in snow—shovel and it works great!
  • Extra blankets are in the closet, on the beds and/or in the coffee table and end table upstairs if you like/need.

 Added Amenities: (Some seasonal)

  • Sunscreen: We supply a bit of Sunscreen. It is SPF 30. 
  • For the Sweet hearted: Help yourself to the candy jar.
  • Starter Amenities: We supply initial coffee, tea & soaps for dishwasher & laundry – longer stays may have to purchase more.
  • Telescope: Located under the stairs.  
    • Please keep it dry and all parts together and in good shape – do not use when raining or snowing. The viewing will be nada plus it will ruin the telescope.
    • If you have it on the deck in winter, please ensure it and you are on sure footing. It is wonderful on a clear night and there are books in the house to identify the stars and constellations.
  • Snowshoes & Poles: Located in the “Deck Box” outside.  Please re-case them and return them to the same locked chest when finished
  • Bikes (2): Located on the deck in summer – please re-lock when finished using them with a double lock and to the fence.
  • Ski / Board Rack:  Located on the exterior near the gate.  Please hang / leave all ski gear outside.

  • Music:  The Speaker is WI-FI / Bluetooth enabled – it is on the bookcase in the living room
  • Beach Chairs:  Located in the “Toy Box” Chest outside.  Please return them to the same locked chest when finished.  They are also good for the deck after we winterize and remove the patio furniture after the first snow.

Odds & Ends:

Fireplace, Firewood, & Hot Logs:

  • We heat our home with our fireplace, but you can use the heater, too of course.
  • To start a fire, help yourself to the wood on the back deck (in winter); if not right next to the fireplace.
  • We suggest you bring fire starters in our pre-arrival information to make lighting a fire easier
  • Do remove ash and use the metal bucket for the embers, keeping it on the hearth
  • Hot Logs:  close the fireplace door fully when leaving the unit or going to bed
