Waste Disposal - All garbage must be taken on departure. Renters are asked to please remove all rubbish, recycling and empty alcohol containers and take with you upon checkout. Garbage disposal is located at the Healey Transfer Station on your way out of the marina parking lot. Details for disposal are included in the rental contract as well as on the departure checklist. Refer to instructions in the cottage binder. A $50 charge will apply to any garbage left behind at the cottage.
Fireworks and other incendiary devices - No fireworks on property. Fireworks cause forest fires. The lighting of fireworks are absolutely FORBIDDEN at the cottage. Any renter caught lighting fireworks will be immediately evicted. Likewise, no other incendiary devices are allowed, this includes tiki torches and light fluid for campfires.
Bathroom / Septic System - The cottage operates on a septic system. The septic system is a very sensitive, and integral, part of cottage life. The basic rule is do not put anything down the toilet other than natural waste and toilet paper (and be conservative with the paper). It is critical that nothing else be flushed down the toilet, especially baby wipes or wet wipes and feminine hygiene products. Please place in the garbage located beside the toilet.
Fireplace - Please do not use artificial logs or anything other than hardwood firewood (such as maple or ash, not pine, cedar or wood scrapes). Do not use lighter fluid to start the fire. Do not overload the fireplace. Assure that you do not operate the woodstove with the door open. Do not cut down trees on the property for firewood. Do not cut or split wood on the fireplace hearth (it will break) or anywhere inside the cottage.
Outdoor Fires - Recreational "campfires" are only allowed in the established fire pit on the cottage property. Do not leave fires unattended.
BBQ is provided for the enjoyment of guests. Please clean after each use.
