Q. Will my damage deposit be debited if the smokers in my group discard their cigarette butts in the yard?
A. Yes. We will debit your damage deposit $1 per butt found in the pine straw after you leave. It might seem petty but over time the yard really begins to look trashy if guests don’t discard them in the ash tray where they belong. At its worst we’ve needed to pick up dozens of butts all around the pool deck. Smoking outside is of course fine with us- but please no littering.

Q. Can I purchase traveler’s insurance on my stay?
A. Yes. Feel free to purchase traveler’s insurance from anywhere you’d like to! Here are a few options of companies that previous guests have used to insure their stays:
