RULES AND REGULATIONS: Randy & I have lovingly put a lot of effort into making our rental cozy and comfortable just for you..... We are extremely pet friendly. We charge a small fee and we do expect pet owners to clean up after their pets- especially pet hair and feces. Pets should not be left loose or un-crated when you are gone from the rental. The most well behaved pet will get upset if left in an unfamiliar place by themselves. If we continue to receive the wonderful cooperation from pet owners we will be able to continue our policy of welcoming pets. *No smoking in home. *No fireworks. *Hunters may hunt at the back of the property with the consent of the owner. *No ATV's or Dirt Bikes.

We strongly advise that you DO NOT use your GPS to find us. We have great directions on our confirmation page we email to you. If not clear about our directions, feel free to contact us for the best directions. Our address or the rental does not show up in the GPS/navigational systems. If it does, it seems to take people to other locations and get them lost.
