Though the house has a fireplace, it is not in use. We do not allow any open flames like a fire pit in the yard, as it is a safety hazard and the retreat is in a high fire risk neighborhood. Thanks for your understanding.

Other things to note
PET POLICY: We feel it's important to understand why we charge for your pet. They are beings, just like us, they are family, so think of them as an "extra person". However, they are in a strange house and yard, and though most people have well trained pets, it is possible that something could get damaged or need extra cleaning, and the pet fee generalizes that contingency. We hope you'll understand. To make sure we know you read this section, please include the word "WOOFER" in your initial correspondence. One dog $25 per stay, two dogs $40 per stay. Your furry companion must be leash trained, house broken, non aggressive. Please let us know if you'll be bringing your pet ahead of time. We have a food/water dish available but please bring your pet's food, toys, bed, crate, leash, etc. Cats are cool too! Same rules/prices apply, PLUS we can provide a litter box.
