your rental property.

occur to the premises during your rental period; subject to exclusions and limitations. Any damages that are not covered under the policy will be the responsibility of the tenant. On rare occasions a property may require a cash security deposit. Your reservationist

PM please call our office to make arrangements for a late check-in. We cannot provide late check-ins for rentals with a balance due. Remember, we hate to say no, so please do not ask…we CAN NOT give out keys prior to 3:00 PM.
Check-Out time is on Saturday at 10 a.m. It is critical that the property/premises be vacated by this time as cleaning crews will arrive at 10 a.m. They will not clean a home while a guest is there.
PLEASE NOTE: Occupying a home beyond the check-out time will result in additional rent due from guest equivalent to one days rent for each hour, or pro-ration thereof, of occupancy beyond the check-out-time, time being of the essence. Please be sure
to return keys to At The Lake Vacation Rentals, LLC upon departure. Failure to return keys to At The Lake Vacation Rentals, LLC by 11 a.m. on the day of departure will result in a $25.00 charge to guest as a replacement key will be
ordered at that time.
Keeping It Clean: You will be enjoying your vacation in a home cherished by its owners. While in your care, please treat of the home as though it were your own. The property owner has made arrangements to assure that your vacation home is
clean and ready for you upon arrival. Please notify us promptly if, in the unlikely event you find this not to be the case. Please note that excess cleaning fee’s will be the guests responsibility. These fees can be avoided by assuring that:
- All Food and Trash are properly bagged, removed from the home and deposited in the designated trash bin(s).
- Be sure to keep all trash barrels/bins tightly sealed. There can be critters out there who have not yet learned to clean up after themselves.
- The Refrigerator, Stove, Oven and other appliances are wiped clean and free of grease and crumbs.
- All Dishes are washed, dried and placed in original cabinetry/shelf locations. Please do not leave dishes in the dishwasher.
- The yard is left clean and free of any debris, including cigarette butts.
- The home is left broom clean and organized as you found it.
Pets: Not all properties are “Pet Friendly”. Some homeowners allow pets while others do not. Pets of any kind are specifically not allowed unless the property owner has provided written consent that a Pet(s) may be kept on the premises during
your stay. Search for the “Pet Friendly" units or simply give us a call and we can discuss finding you some pet friendly homes for
Guests or their visitors found in violation of pet restriction policies will render the Guest in violation/default of their lease and may be asked to vacate the premises. If it is agreed that a pet may be brought on the premises, there is typically a “Pet
Fee”. Your lease agreement will govern these terms. In any case, pets must be collared and leashed at all times while outside of the home and never left unattended.
Occupancy Regulations: Please adhere to the maximum person limites as provided for in your lease agreement and on your reservation confirmation. Please note that if it is determined that the overnight ( 8p.m. to 8 a.m. ) guest limit has
been exceeded, at any point in time, the guest will be considered in default of their lease and may be asked to vacate the premises.
Gatherings/Guests: We ask that you be mindful of your neighbors while you’re on vacation. Sound travels easily, especially over open water. Please be mindful of the property limits/capacities as it relates to septic system capacities and
parking capabilities. No large gatherings in excess of the allowed occupancy limit are permitted during daytime hours without the consent of At The Lake Vacation Rentals, LLC. Some of our homes are located within subdivisions or associations where there may
be rules and policies that must be adhered to in conjunction with your lease of a home within that subdivision or association. For example, beach parking may have limitations or require permitting.
At The Lake Vacation Rentals, LLC will provide you with documentation where needed and applicable.
Subletting: Subletting is not permitted under any circumstances. Subletting of the premises shall void the lease agreement.
Property Amenities: We represent many private home owners offering a broad range of properties from luxury homes to the most modest of cottages on and by the lake(s). Those with telephones are usually limited to local calls only. Therefore
it is highly recommended that you have a cell phone during your stay. Nearly all properties now have either cable or satellite television. An increasing number offer broadband services. All amenities that a property has to offer will be indicated on the property
listing sheet including such items as outdoor grills. If the listing sheet does not indicate that the property has a specific amenity, please do not assume that it has it. Please ask your reservationist.
All of our properties have kitchens that will provide you with the essentials needed in order to prepare everyday meals. Coffee makers and other small appliances are generally provided. Again, please rely upon the property listing sheet for these details.
Needed Items: Paper products, soaps, linens and towels are not provided. If you would like to rent sheets and towels,please contact your reseravationist.
Guest Services: Our office is open 7 days a week. Our summer hours arer from 9 am until 5 pm, except on Saturday when the office is open until 6 pm. Our winter hours are 10am to 4pm. To better assure that any post check-in needs are cared
for, one of our reservationists is always on call until 9 p.m. on Saturday evening. (603-253-9871). If there is an emergency please dial 911.
The homeowner has agreed to pay for any necessary service calls that may be needed during the term of your stay. However, any service calls made that are the result of guest abuse/misuse of the property shall be billable to the guest.
Inspections: We inspect all of our properties to make sure that they are priced competitively for the features and location offered and to assure that they are well maintained throughout our vacation season. We strive to make sure that the
properties we represent offer the best value possible to vacationers in the Lakes Region. Regardless of these continued efforts, we strongly encourage all to take advantage of the 7 day right to inspect allowed by our booking policy. We provide this window
to allow you to inspect your vacation home, or have someone inspect it on your behalf. What one considers a cute and cozy rustic cabin in the woods may be considered remote and insufficient by another. Beaches vary in size, shape and lake bottom texture. Due
to the fact that our lake levels periodically change, water depths at the docks end can change. The amount of exposed beach can also change. Please keep in mind that it is your responsibility to make sure that the property is well suited for your intended
use and expectations.
General Provisions: Some owners have fire pits or bowls and are required by law to have a fire permit displayed at the property. If a property does not have one of these items you may not bring your own onto the property. Only the property
owner can obtain fire permits. No tents, trailers, motorhomes or campers of any type are permitted on any of our properties at any time. At The Lake Vacation Rentals, LLC shall not be held responsible for noise generated by any construction project
underway either adjacent to or nearby any property that we represent. Such projects are entirely beyond our control and can begin and/or end at any point in time.
Water: Many of our properties draw their water from the lake and bottled water is required for consumption. This information is on the listing sheet for each individual property requiring bottled water.
Agency Representation: At The Lake Vacation Rentals, LLC represents the property owner in the leasing/rental of their home. Our mission is to successfully join homeowners and vacationers together in reaching their respective goals. At The
Lake Vacation Rentals, LLC is not a property management company. Rather, it is a rental booking agency helping homeowners match their property with a guest whose vacation rental needs are best met by bringing the two parties together.
Mechanical Failures: The properties we represent are privately owned homes. Any system or mechanical item may be subject to failure or breakdown. The property owners have provided us with contact information for tradesmen that may be called
upon if the need arises. At The Lake Vacation Rentals, LLC will make every effort to have any system or mechanical failure repaired as soon as possible as authorized by the homeowner. The ultimate decision as to whether such a system or mechanical
failure renders the property reasonably “un-useable and/or uninhabitable” shall rest solely with the homeowner. At The Lake Vacation Rentals, LLC shall not be held responsible for any decision made relative to this paragraph.
