We assist in the rescue, care and placement of waterfowl. We assist with the rescue, care and placement of GSD’s (German Shepherd Dogs) in need for Veterans in need. We are a giving organization.

Kindness: We offer the healing energy of nature minutes away from highway and city. Verbal harassment, abusive behavior, foul language, threats & fraud is not ok. It disrupts the peace of our Guests.

Nature Reserve Definition: A nature reserve is privately funded & exists for the protection of the natural world. Guests are not permitted to enter on their own, swim, fish or boat in the reserve as the swans and wildlife are protected and it is an absolute safety hazard for both you, the Guest, and the wildlife. Instead, Guests are invited to attend guided swan & koi feedings several times each week. We are not responsible for changes in weather, temperature, seasons, or water or the wildlife that appears daily.

HOUSE RULES/HOUSE MANUAL The following House Rules for the protection & peace of all our Amazing Guests.

(BYOB: All dog owners are encouraged to Bring Their Own Bedding (or linens) and Pay only $99/month for Dog Proofing & Cleaning. ) A REFUNDABLE security DP of $150 is required. Due to insurance companies, we may not accept all breeds and there are a few hoops to go through. We will do our best to accommodate your pup. We require 1 page of veterinary paperwork for age & updated vaccines PRIOR to check-in. Like a hotel, your dog may be left alone in an apartment/cabin providing they are inside a kennel & you will return within 6 hours. However, dogs may not disturb the peace of others. They may not bark uncontrollably while you are away. If you plan to be away longer, make arrangements, in advance, so your pup is comfortable. There are 2 yards for dog walking.

Pet owners are responsible for Dog “accidents”. We do not accept any other type of pets. Owners must identify their dogs as pets SDs or TDs prior to booking which does take a great deal of time to prepare for. All bedding, furniture coverings, etc are provided for each dog stay. We remove every piece of dander and hair which goes up walls & throughout each home to prepare for the next Guest. Dog owners with an ESA do not have to disclose this information for us to accept your dog. We gladly accept Service Dogs, TD, ESAs & pets. But, we do not provide free services for your animal. Owners requesting $149 free services paid for & performed by another by telling us your dog is "certified" are subject to additional questions and discount limitations.
Unauthorized & unapproved dogs or pets – An emergency cleaning crew will remove cat & dog dander and hair at a cost above $1,000. Damaged items including leather furnishings, wooden doorways, walls, floors etc. will be repaired at your expense. Cat damages easily exceed $10,000.
5. Quiet time: Due to most people working from home, quiet time is Now 24 hrs per day. We love dogs, but they cannot bark throughout the day or night. Quiet time is always in effect.
6. Trash & Recycle: Remove all , including open bottles daily. If you infest property, you are responsible for it’s restoration. Trash is along the street. Recycle is along the driveway. Trash bags are provided for you.
7. Well: We use an expensive filtration system on the property to ensure top quality water for you. No chemical soup here. We use 2 large, 10 yr filters, 1-micron & 5-micron filters. Still, you may see a trace amount of yellow from iron in our water. You CANNOT REMOVE THE YELLOW BY RUNNING & RUNNING THE WATER, YOU ARE ONLY DAMAGING OUR WELL! We are an ECO Retreat. If you consume so much water during your stay as to turn the water orange, you have damaged our well. You will automatically be charged a fee of $500 for someone to come out on an emergency basis to change both 10 yr filters so everyone may again have clean water. Please respect our Mother Gaia. You did choose to stay at an ECO Nature Reserve.
8. Fighting: No fighting, loud arguing or violence of any kind. It disturbs the peace.
9. Responsibility: You are responsible for the actions of everyone in your party including your dog. It is your responsibility to notify me of any issue that may arise during your stay concerning your services, accommodations, another guest, etc. I can only resolve a situation if it is brought to my attention.
10. Respect: Respect the rights to peace & quiet enjoyment of ALL others, including your Host. If you need anything, please let us know.
11. ID & Security: Present Govt ID when you arrive. We keep a copy of it for your security and safety during your stay. It is destroyed when you leave.

Please remember our Mother Gaia. Guests may be fined up to $30 per day.
14. ECO: We provide sound machines to our Guests for comfort. Kitchen and bath exhaust fans remove odors ONLY and are not white-noise machines. If run constantly, they only serve to remove all heat and air conditioning from the home. This is an ECO Retreat. Guests may be charged up to $30 per day for running exhaust fans.
15. Security: Lock your doors. Your security is important.
16. Safety: Use lights on all stairs, indoor & outdoor, after dark. Safety 1st please.
17. Pay It Forward Cleaning: CLEANING+CHOICE. Your accommodation is to be returned to it's original condition when you depart. (We don’t expect you to thoroughly clean.) This was always your responsibility. But, Covid-19 has pushed some responsibility back to the Guests again. Because you don’t want to pay cleaning fees not even for professional Covid-19 sanitizing fees, we have charged you a $0 cleaning fees. The actual cost of cleaning your rented apartment or cottage is $150 or $30 per hour for professional covid-19 sanitizing & cleaning of entire home. Prior to your departure, you will receive instructions which explain a proper covid-free checkout including bagging your bedding, towels & dog covers, leaving out all used dishes, pots & pans, etc. for sanitizing, wiping down counters & appliances you have used, taking out trash & recycle and taking all of your belongings and food with you. These procedures are simple & all that we require. If you choose not to complete them when you checkout, you are responsible for payment to our cleaning crew who will perform these chores on your behalf as we simply can’t pay to have them done for you. The following items are also billable at $30 per hour as they are inconsistent with normal cleaning protocols: 1) leaving 50%+ dishes out for sanitizing 2) dirty dishes 3)dirty appliances & counters 4)soiled bedding, towels & dog bedding not bagged 4)trash not removed 5)food & recycle not removed, etc. 6)A/C unit(s) running (automatic charge of $30). We will bill you to complete these, “Guest” tasks at a rate of $30 per hour. You have not prepaid for these services, and they are not included in the cost of the accommodations. You may also pre-pay these services if you wish. Thanks to all our Wonderful Guests for their cooperation during this difficult time.
18. Plumbing: Guests may not flush wipes, "flushable wipes", baby wipes or feminine products, or ice packs down drains. Pipes date to the 1930's. Guests may not clog sinks by removing strainers. Guests may not alter plumbing fixtures. Guests will be responsible for emergency plumbing repair for flushed prohibited items, altered plumbing fixtures and clogged drains.
19. Vehicles: One car per guest or couple. If you need an exception or have an oversized vehicle, please contact us in advance.
20. Candles: No candles, NONE. We have provided battery operated candles.
21. Storage: If you need to store any large item such as a trailer or bike, please contact me in advance of reservation.
22. Injury: No unsafe actions of any kind that can result in injury to yourself & others or damage.
23. Additional Guests: No additional guests may be invited without our prior knowledge due to safety and security of all Guests. Additional unauthorized Guests stay at a rate of $25 per evening.
24. Emergency: Few things are an emergency after 9pm. In case of emergency, ring bell on side of home.
25. Weapons & Illegal Activity: NO weapons, illegal drugs, or illegal activity of any kind, including fraudulent activity.
26. Mail: You may never receive your mail or grocery delivery as this is a temporary home.
27.Check-out: Checkout time is at 11:00am unless you have made other arrangements. Failure to checkout by 12pm, will result in an additional day charge.
28. We offer unlimited high speed 5G wifi internet by Tmobile. We also offer Netflix, Dish, Amazon Prime and Hulu. Our service is expensive and we pay it for you. You are certainly not required to use it. Please feel free to bring your own WIFI device. If this does not meet your needs, there are hotels with wifi in town. Kindly do not book here, enjoy nature, then destroy us because we are not located in a city with wired wifi. We are so much more than a wifi connection.
29. STR: Please note that your stay here does not constitute, imply or form a lease or contract. We provide Short Term Rentals only or STR’s, less than 1 yr. We are not landlords. You are not a tenant when you rent an STR. You cannot make an application for an apartment or home by renting an STR. We do not rent any accommodations to tenants. Your STR ends on the final day that you have paid to stay. You will not be given an option to continue your stay here as a tenant, following your STR. Your stay will not convert to a lease.
30. Snow & Ice: Just like Home. We are not responsible for acts of God. We do not work in the dark or clear near your car. We will clear the lots when the snow stops falling. It is impossible for us to provide clearing services specific to your work schedule. We do provide rock salt and shovels for you. We ask that you have reasonable expectations regarding mother nature. We will certainly provide assistance for you.
31. 3rd Party Services: We provide you with top-of-the-line services available in our area. However, we are limited to what is available to us. We are not responsible for the delivery, quality and timing of each 3rd party service as we are not the provider. These include but are not limited to Dish, WiFi, Trash, Recycle, snow plowing, etc. We will certainly intervene to ensure you receive the highest quality service available from the provider. But, we cannot be held responsible for the delivery of another provider’s service.
32. Laundry & Linens: Unlike a hotel, an ECO STR does not provide clean towels daily. Launder those provided to you. A coin opp laundry room is here for Guests staying one week or more. We can also provide you with change. Fee is $25 for clean set of towels or sheets.

Many thanks for respecting our rules. Please enjoy the Peace & Quiet of your stay. We are here to answer your questions and concerns, always.
