House Rules

Notes for Exchangers

  • When you come to this resort as an exchange, you are staying in a unit that belongs to 51 individual owners. Repairs to the units, furnishings, and amenities are paid for by those owners. Please keep this in mind and treat their property as if it were your own.


  • We are a very small resort, with extremely limited storage space.
  • If you receive mail (envelopes/magazines only – i.e.: items that can fit in a standard mailbox) up to two weeks prior to your arrival, it will be held for you. Mail received more than two weeks prior to your stay OR after your check-out will be returned to sender.
  • If you receive packages up to one week prior to your arrival, you will be charged a storage fee of $10-$25 PER PACKAGE, PER DAY from the day the package is delivered until the day of your arrival. Storage fees must be paid in full before packages will be released. Packages received more than one week prior to your arrival OR after your check-out will be returned to sender.
  • If you receive packages/mail/delivery during your stay, you will be notified and asked to retrieve your item(s) at the Front Desk. There is no charge for receiving packages while you are currently in-house, as long as the package is picked up the same day.


  • A government-issued photo ID must be presented at the time of check-in, and the name on the ID must match the name on the reservation.
  • A $100 security deposit (cash or credit card) is required to check-in. Your deposit, less any room charges and/or damages, will be returned after you have checked out and your unit has been inspected.
  • When you check in, you will also need the make, model, license number, and state of registration of your car, so that we may issue a parking pass for your vehicle.

One last note
Although the vast majority of our guests respect our resort and the other people who come to “live” here during their weeks by leaving the units in good condition, we have found that others do not. If you are one of the “others”, please be aware that all guests will be charged for damage to units and their contents, and that we charge a “heavy cleaning fee” of no less than $50 for units left in excessively poor condition at check-out. The fee for smoking in your unit is $250 per unit/week.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us!
