PETS - We apologize, but pets are not allowed on the premises. In the event of a breach, penalty fees and deep cleaning costs of $1,000 or more may be applied. Please inform us if you are traveling with a Service Animal as we are required to provide your pet’s rabies vaccination record and county registration to the county of San Bernardino. You will be asked to sign a supplemental terms and conditions agreement within 72 hours of booking. If it is determined that a pet has been misrepresented as a Service Animal, we kindly request your understanding that your booking deposit will be forfeited. Additionally, we have an obligation to report any fraudulent claims to the appropriate government authorities. We appreciate your cooperation and adherence to our policies.

FALSIFIED RESERVATIONS – Reservations obtained under false pretense will forfeit all rental monies and guests will not be permitted to check-in.

If we cannot repair the spa during your stay, we will offer the following credits:

  • Unclean - $50 credit

  • Non-functional - $100 credit

AIR CONDITIONING – Mountain living has its advantages! We have the great fortune of averaging 10-20 degrees cooler than in the flatlands. As such, our home does not need air conditioning. If the house is warmer than you would like, simply open the windows and the home will cool off. We have a fan in every bedroom to help cool. We will not provide any refund for the lack of air conditioning.

GOOD NEIGHBOR POLICY – Please be considerate of our friendly neighbors, as noise can easily travel in the mountains. Quiet hours are from 10 pm to 8 am. If we receive any noise complaints, we will contact you and kindly request a reduction in noise before involving local authorities. Continued noise disturbances may result in eviction without a refund and the loss of the deposit.

BUGS and PESTS – Our mountains are surrounded by forest for miles and miles. The Spring and Summer seasons bring insects you normally wouldn’t experience in the city. When the winter snow melts, ants and spiders may pay a visit. To keep them away, please keep the counters and floors clean and do not leave any food out overnight. If you should encounter them in our home, simply use the insect spray under the sink, or use dish soap on a sponge to wipe them away. We will not compensate for the presence of insects. If the problem persists, please let us know.

FIREPLACE – Our property has two wood-burning fireplaces. Only wood should be burned in the fireplaces, and other materials are strictly prohibited. Wood burning logs are not provided.

PROPANE - Our team diligently fills the propane tanks as needed. If the propane tank runs out during your stay, simply give us a call, and we will promptly provide a replacement. If you prefer, you are also welcome to exchange the propane tank yourself in case of any delays. Walgreen's offers an exchange program for your convenience. Upon presenting us with the receipt, we'll gladly offer a credit to your account, saving you valuable time.

ADDITIONAL – We will provide you with the house manual and the front door code via e-mail before your check-in. This unique code is specifically assigned to your reservation and changes with each guest for enhanced security. We kindly request that you report any maintenance issues upon your arrival to ensure a pleasant stay. Please note that moving the furniture is not allowed to maintain its proper arrangement. The safety of our guests is paramount, and therefore, we have placed two fire extinguishers in the home—one in the dining room and another at the top of the stairs. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with their use, ensuring peace of mind during your stay. Please note that prior arrangements must be made for any editorial or commercial film or photography activities within the property. We appreciate your cooperation in adhering to these policies designed to ensure a safe and enjoyable stay for all guests.

Guest Love and Rave Reviews: Hear What Our Happy Guests Have to Say!

“Beautifully decorated home with such a warm family vibe. Everything was so clean and just as described. Mark and Lethy’s communication was second to none. Awesome place and we would love to visit again.” - Gabriel

"Mark and Lethy are truly super hosts! Their cabin was well equipped, incredibly clean, comfortable, and well taken care of. They were also very communicative and accommodating to our group of 8. There were no children in our group but this cabin is very kid-friendly and we appreciated the comfortable couch and living room set-up where all 8 of us were able to fit on the couch. They have lots of great records and a record player, a comfortable dining room table, and all the amenities you need for your stay. I can’t recommend this listing enough." - Deena

“The cabin was located near convenience stores, gas stations and restaurants. Easy to access. Property was clean and with everything needed for a fun weekend. A few of my favorite things were the card from the host to our family, hot tub and the variety of games to play.” - Enrique

"Mark and Lethy’s home was beautiful. My husband, myself, my parents, and my almost 2 yr old daughter had a great time there. It had the cabin feel to it and we felt right at home. Everything was clean and the kitchen had everything that we needed. The amenities in the back yard area (the pool table/games in the garage, the fire pit, hot tub) were great bonuses, we wish we could’ve used all of them but didn’t get a chance to due to my family having to cut the trip short. If you have a small or big family we definitely recommend staying here, you will not be disappointed." - Vanessa

"We really enjoyed our stay over the holiday weekend. Clear and easy check-in & check-out process. Description of cabin was exactly as described. Place was clean and kitchen was fully stocked with all cooking appliances. They also had a great game room for entertainment. Highly recommend staying at Mark & Lethy’s place!
