Owner

FAMILY OF 4 WITH ONE OTHER OUT OF THE NEST AND A GRAND BABY. BOTH PARENTS ARE COLLEGE EDUCATED PROFESSIONALS THAT GREW UP IN MN AND ON/AROUND THE LAKES, RIVERS, ETC. CURRENTLY OUT OF STATE WORKING WHICH IS WHY THE HOUSE IS EVEN AVAILABLE. ONCE YOU HAVE SHOWN AN INTEREST WE ARE COMPLETELY TRANSPARENT AND WILL HELP YOU VETT US AS WE WILL VETT YOU. THE REASON THIS WORKS IS WE GET QUALITY RENTERS THAT WILL CARE FOR OUR HOME AS IF IT'S THEIR OWN. WE WANT HAPPY RENTERS THAT COME AND MAKE LIFETIME MEMORIES.

Cancellation Policy
We take the balance due 120 days out. Up to that point either party may cancel for any reason. After the 120 days we are obligated to one another.
