Many factors including the severity and duration of the winter weather, as well as the type of vehicle you are driving (2WD,4WD, AWD) and the condition and type of tires on your vehicle (snow tires) along with your level of expertise in driving in these conditions, are all variable factors. The main paved subdivision road and the gravel driveway to Hawk's View House are not maintained by the County and although some snow plowing and scraping may be arranged it is not guaranteed.

Security Deposit claims will be initiated if any pet occupies the property for any period of time without the prior approval of the owner.

TODDLERS: If you are parents or are traveling with toddler age children, Hawks View may not be the best vacation rental option for you due to a number of factors; our wrap-around deck does not have guard rails and it is a 30" (inch) drop to the ground below, the house site has a very steep bank on the view side, also the stair to the 2nd floor has open risers. The wood-burning stove and gas firepit on the deck may also present a danger to younger age children. Therefore If you decide to book with children you understand that they must be supervised at all times and by making a booking you are expressly assuming the risk of any harm arising from the use of Hawks View premises.

PET POLICY:
As pet lovers ourselves, we understand how hard it can be to find vacation accommodations when traveling with your pet/pets. Our pet policy is to ensure we can continue to offer Hawks View House as a PET-FRIENDLY rental property. Therefore, all pets must be pre-approved by the homeowner and pet fees paid. Evidence of non-disclosed pets occupying the property will result in a forfeit of your damage deposit.

Pets are allowed as a courtesy to owners who want to vacation with their fur babies. Please understand that we have more guests who don’t vacation with their pets and many who are allergic to pet hair, so we are very firm about our pet policy and the need to keep your pet’s hair to the minimum. If you have a “high shed pet” then Hawks View is probably not the best option for you to vacation with your pet if you are not willing to be diligent about keeping their hair off our bedding and furniture.

1. We only accept pets that are fully house-trained and spayed/neutered. If you have a large dog (over 55 lbs) or dogs that are heavy shedders or more than one pet, please email or call so we can discuss this in more detail. In general, (LOW SHED) well behaved dogs 55 pounds or smaller are fine, provided they do not get on the furniture or mark inside the house or on the porch/deck.

2.Pets are NOT allowed on furniture or beds unless the furniture is covered by your own sheets and /or towels (please make sure you bring these items as needed). Please bring your pets personal bedding, crate, food dishes etc. Evidence of pets on furniture or in beds will result in additional cleaning fees being retained from your damage deposit. If you are careless and let pillows, comforters + guest bedding get on the floor where your dog’s hair is then you will be charged extra cleaning fees even though your dog may not have gotten on the bed or furniture.

3.All pets must be up to date on flea and tick treatment with a brand name medication within 15 days of your arrival. Ticks are prevalent in the mountains; therefore, we recommend tick treatment in addition to flea treatment if your dog will be hiking or outside with you during your vacation. (Topical treatments that include both flea and tick prevention – K9 Advantix 2, Frontline PLUS, Vectra 3D, Revolution, PetAmor PLUS, Sentry FliproGuard PLUS). Monies will be retained from your damage deposit if flea extermination is required.

4.Please clean-up after your pets inside the house and after bathroom visit in the yard. No dogs are allowed in the flower garden in the front of the house (tramping perennials, digging or pooping). We understand accidents can happen, if this is the case please use the “pet enzyme cleaner” provided on the utility room shelf for clean-up. Please DO NOT use guest towels on pets. Utility rags and outside towels are provided for cleanup on the shelf above the washing machine

5. For your pet's safety, we recommend that you keep your pet on a leash when walking as well as fully supervised at all times. (cable tether provided in utility room). Deer are often seen on the property and some dogs may chase them off-site into the surrounding woods. Female deer can be extremely protective of their young and aggressive towards dogs in pursuit. Also, wild animals such as coyotes and bears are in the area. We assume no responsibility for illness or injury to pets while on the premises.
