GUEST CHECK OUT List To Do For the Person doing the last walk through:

  1. Put 2 Lanyards with Guest passes on refrigerator. 
  2. Last person walk through is to look to be sure nothing left behind that would cost a fee and postage to return – look in drawers, under beds… Be sure to take your pillows, bath towels, hand towels, wash cloths, dish towels and blankets. Sheets are ours and see below for handling.
  3. Empty dishwasher and put away everything clean in kitchen. Check oven that it is clean. Check grill that it is clean.
  4. Lock each window (2 part open/close) and doors from our intelligent bears. 
  5. Take all kitchen and bathroom trash to dumpster. Do not leave food, bags, or anything in refrigerator or cabinets; take your pillows, blankets, towels, check washer and dryer for your things. 
  6. Put all bed sheets, tablecloths in provided bags (bedroom on main floor or any trash bag) and put on kitchen porch separate from trash so it doesn’t get confused with trash. 
  7. Put not-used emergency disinfectant supply container back on table. Put disinfectant wipes by outside if removed.
  8. Make sure no commodes running. Please wipe down a few light switches and door knobs for next person coming in to work. 
  9. Please be sure there is nothing left behind from your pet in the yard. Small children play in the yard.
  10. Be sure to alert me if anyone gets sick, we will do the same for you if any of us or any vendor gets sick. This will enable us to take more precautions for the next guest or let them cancel if not comfortable.
  11. If anything major needed maintenance, you would have called us at the time. Anything not major, please email me or call me as soon as possible so that we can try to get it fixed before the next guest. It is difficult to get vendors in a timely fashion during this time.
  12. Call the Host 20 minutes before departure. Use your house phone.  I will walk him/her through turning off the water.  Also we will know you have gone. If you need a later checkout that is fine, just call me. You can have up to 6:00 pm for check-out.

Thank you for doing a great job checking in and checking out during the Pandemic. We hope you had a wonderful time and made lots of good memories with your family and friends. Please come back and stay with us again. We love our Guests.
