Linens: Yes, we provide your sheets and linens. Just like a hotel, the beds will be made for you upon arrival.

We have just the basic sheets, pillows, pillow cases and bath towels.

Parking: There is only parking for a single car on the property.

Pets: Dogs 15lbs or less will be considered. Please contact us. Freshwater Vacation Rentals currently charges $50/per pet for your entire stay. We do ask that you please clean up after them both inside and outside the cabin. Plus, if you allow them on the furniture, we do ask that you please bring your own linens/blankets for them to sleep on. Just let us know which bed you will be using with them, and we'll make sure it is ready for your sheets when you arrive. Plus, if the pet hair starts to build, we do ask that you please run the vacuum. Generally, dogs love the water and places to explore. Pet food does tend to attract mice, so vigilance is needed.

Smoking: No smoking allowed of any kind, on the property. Due to the close proximity of the neighbors, it is strictly prohibited.

Towels: Yes, we provide towels. It's always good to bring extra though.

Washer and dryer: The home does not have a washer/dryer
