How early can I check in? What time is check out?
Check in begins at 3pm Thursday (or Friday depending on which you have chosen) and checkout 2pm Sunday (or Monday).
Typically, we can be flexible to early check-in and late check-out, when arranged in advance.

Can I bring my pet with me?
For the comfort of our other guests, NO PETS are allowed.

Can I bring my kids with me?
Since you are renting the cottage as a private group this is your choice (and those attending with you). Please note, it is on
the water and safety may be a concern when deciding.

Do I have to share a bedroom?
More than likely, yes. There are three
bedrooms with 5 beds total: 1 king and
4 twin (plus a sleep sofa in living area).

When can I scrapbook?
Anytime you want! Each guests has a
dedicated scrapbooking space when they
check in - no need to put your supplies
away when (if) you go to sleep.
Scrap round the clock, if you desire.

Do you accommodate other hobbies
as well?
Of course! I love crafting! The table
space can suit quilters, beaders, stampers,
cardmakers, artists, and almost any
craft you can think of.

What do I need to bring with me?
Your scrapbooking needs - photos,
papers, adhesive and embellishments.
We have a variety of tools available which may help lighten your load. Towels, linens, toilet tissue, paper towels, garbage
bags, coffee, tea, sugar and cream are provided. Bring your food also. The location is twenty minutes from Food Lion along
with McDonalds and a few other restaurants and conveniences. Along with dishes and basic pots/pans, the kitchen is
equipped with microwave, toaster, and crock-pot.

Are meals included?
Meals are NOT included - we have a full-size fridge and a fully-equipped kitchen available for your use. Please plan ahead
this cottage is out of the way.

What beverages are provided?
Coffee and tea. If you choose to bring alcoholic beverages, please limit consumption. This is "at your own risk". Please do
not drink and drive.

How do I get there? Where can I find the address?
To ensure the privacy of our guests, we do not publicize the address. We will send you the address and directions before
your stay. If you'd like to see the property before making a reservation, please contact us to make an appointment.

What is the largest group you can accept?
I believe six is comfortable for sleeping and scrapping. That's with two sleeping in king bed in master bedroom. There is a
sleep sofa, if needed - maybe add someone who likes to read and cook (smile).

Do we have to clean the house when we leave?
No! We ask that you strip the linens off your bed, place your towels and bed linens in the clothes baskets provided. Garbage
can be gathered and placed in one area. We'll do the rest.

Is a hostess on-site during the weekend?
Sometimes, we meet with guests during the check-in process, but do not spend the weekend at the house. We are available
24/7 by cell phone if any questions or issues arise during your stay and may stop in around check-out time.
