Absolutely NO SMOKING of any kind in the home or on the property. We are located in a high fire risk area.

FIRE EXTINGUISHERS located under the kitchen sink and entry closet.

SECURITY CAMERAS on home exterior only, door and driveway.

Home security system: if you would like to engage the system when away from the home, set the wall keypad to “AWAY.”

Press “LOCK” on the door keypad to lock the door, upon exiting for any outing and checkout.

The smart lock/keypad is a manual deadbolt from the inside.


TRAVEL/PARKING

PARKING/DRIVEWAY: suitable for up to 3 cars. The driveway is a little steep. We suggest a small SUV or larger. Sometimes a longer hitch can scrape. Avoid this by staying to the right side of the drive way when entering. Street parking is not available.

WINTER/SNOW season: for your safety we recommend 4 wheel drive or all wheel drive and all terrain tires. It is advisable to carry chains. Check road conditions prior to travel. Caltrans (https://roads.dot.ca.gov) for HWY 108.


SNOW REMOVAL: During snow season the roads are plowed once a day by the county. If snow is heavy, like during a snowstorm, we will make an effort to have the driveway plowed for your arrival. If you would like plow service during your stay use the contact list of services in the area, at guest’s expense. Snow shovels are available upon arrival should you need them. Salt also available at the top of the driveway.

FLOODLIGHT: there is 2 way switch at the bottom of the stairs. It is labeled “dual” inside the house entry. You should be able to switch it on outside when it is dark, in case you arrive late or have a late outing. Please switch it off once inside. If you could try to remember to leave the “dual” switch ON, but the flood light OFF so we don't waste electricity that would be helpful to us and the next guest.



HEATING

GAS FIREPLACE: on/off switch located inside the front panel (bottom set of buttons, far right switch). The far left dial can be used to adjust fan speed. Please do not adjust other settings. Note: the fan is automatic and will run for some time after the fireplace is turned off.

WALL FURNACE: adjust to a comfortable setting on the thermostat. There is a fan on the top portion of the unit to help circulate the warm air. Please use it intermittently.

PORTABLE SPACE HEATERS: we ask you keep the heaters plugged into designated outlets. Other outlet locations tend to cause the breaker to trip.

ELECTRIC WALL UNITS: in the bedroom. Slide dresser / table a least 1 foot away for safety.

ELECTRIC CONSOLE HEATER: on/off switch and adjust the “thermostat” icon botton.

MAINTAIN SAFE CLEARANCE around all heating sources. NO FLAMMABLE materials near any heat source.
