COTTAGES:

1.   Spencer's is strict about occupancy, there is no allowance for visitors,    please rent enough cottages to accommodate your group,
the occupancy maximums includes all children, and are for all times of the day and night.
( this type of rule prevents your neighbour from having a noisy party or BBQ with visitors that are not staying at the cottage, unfortunately some people try to do this )

                         3  bedroom cottages  =  8 persons maximum

                         2  bedroom cottages  =  5 persons maximum

                         1  bedroom cottages  =  4 persons maximum
.
2.      Pets:   dogs are subject to an additional fee of $10 per night, the standard dog rules apply, ( no barking, pick up after them, no damages ) but other rules are that  the dog is not to get on the furniture, and that the dog is
        no allowed to be left inside or outside of the cottage un-attended. It is not fair to the other cottagers        to have a dog left barking or making noise. Even if your dog doesn't bark at home, they usually do when they are
        somewhere strange.

3.   All cottages are now non-smoking,  smoking is to be done outside the cottage, please use ashtray and garbage to help keep grounds clean. Please no cooking with curry in the cottages, unfortunately the amount of extra cleaning
      required to eliminate the odours is unreasonable and difficult, so we have decided to add this to the "do not " list the same as cigarette/cigar smoke. Cooking with curry outside the cottages is welcome, so please bbq your meats,
       cook vegetables in tin foil on the bbq,  and enjoy that wonderful  mix of spices, just not to cook indoors with it.

4.     Spencer's considers a reservation a 2-way contract , we will have your cottage clean and ready for you for the length of stay you have reserved. There will be no refunds for late arrivals or early departures.
         Deposit refunds will  be issued minus a 20% administration fee with 45 days notice of cancellation.


Boat Rentals:

   
Renters are responsible for all damages or loss of equipment. Estimates are based on dealership quotes. Price estimates are available in the office.
   Spencer's offers a damage insurance. The insurance is based on 15 % of the boat rental fee. Damage deposits are required to rent a boat.
           30 HP       $750 with insurance        $1500  without insurance
           50 HP       $1000 with insurance      $2000 without insurance
