CHILDREN - We are not equipped to accept children under the age of 13.

DIRECT BOOKING CANCELLATION POLICY - All cancellations for reservations made through third-party platforms (VRBO, Airbnb, etc.) will be handled according to the respective platform's policies.

  • More than 30 Days Notice: If you cancel your reservation more than 30 days before your scheduled arrival date, we will refund your deposit in full, minus any card processing fees.

  • Less than 30 Days Notice: If you cancel within 30 days of your arrival, at our discretion we may relist your suite or cabin at the same or discounted price. If we secure another booking for the same period, we will refund your initial deposit, minus card processing fees and/or any discounts provided to the new guest.

Need more flexibility and financial peace of mind? You can choose to add travel insurance during checkout through our program, or you can purchase it from any provider you prefer. The decision is entirely yours! Resnexus offers a travel insurance program with benefits designed to protect your trip in case of unforeseen circumstances.

While we do not earn any commission incentives if you choose Resnexus travel insurance, we may receive reimbursement when your claim is approved. Here is a brief overview of the offered programs and some key advantages of opting for this insurance:

1. **Coverage for Sickness:** Travelers can be insured against trip cancellations due to illness. This ensures that if you or a traveling companion becomes sick, you won't lose your entire investment in your trip.


2. **Travel Delay Protection:** This benefit helps cover additional accommodation costs or travel expenses if your trip is delayed. This is particularly beneficial for dealing with unexpected changes in flight schedules or other transportation issues.


3. **Adverse Weather Coverage:** This coverage helps protect against trip cancellations due to severe weather conditions that prevent you from reaching your destination. This can include hurricanes, blizzards, or other dangerous weather scenarios.

Please report any equipment that is not operating properly and we will make every effort to resolve the problem as quickly as possible.

OWNER ACCESS - Guests shall allow the owner or designated agents access to the property for purposes of repair, emergency power/water outage, and inspection. We shall do this reasonably and provide as much notice as possible.


GATHERINGS OR MEETINGS - Guests shall not hold meetings, ceremonies, or other gatherings without expressed permission and coordination with MMIC.


HOT TUB - The hot tub is seasonally available from MArch 15th until January 3rd. Please check with the staff to verify the hot tub is open and ready for use. If open, the hot tub is available from 12 pm to 10 pm and users should be considerate of all guests by using the tub in 1-hour blocks. Additionally, regardless of the time of day, keep noise to a minimum while using the hot tub. Other rules;

  • No children under the age of 13 or infants are allowed.

  • Please shower before using the tub to remove make-up, sun-screen, insect repellent, or any other oil-based products.

  • Only clean swimwear may be worn in the tub as the chemicals in the water will remove the colored dyes found in ordinary clothing, causing them to leach into the water and turn it cloudy.

  • Prevent accidental drowning. Leave the hot tub cover on and latched when the spa is unsupervised.

  • Prevent Hyperthermia. Understand that alcohol and other medications greatly increase the chance of hyperthermia – the opposite of hypothermia. This occurs when the internal body temperature reaches several degrees above the normal temperature of 98.6 degrees.

  • Glass. Don’t do it, ever. Trust us.

  • Do not use a hot tub if you are taking any medication that makes you drowsy or affects your circulation; if necessary, check with your doctor. Pregnant women and the elderly should also consult their doctor before using a hot tub.

  • Do not use the hot tub if you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs as your judgment will be impaired and you could become unconscious and drown.

  • No smoking is permitted in or around the tub.

  • People with cuts or external infections should not use the tub

SURRENDER - Tenant will deliver and surrender to Landlord possession of the Premises immediately upon the expiration of the Term or the termination of this Agreement, clean and in as good condition and repair as the Premises was at the commencement of the Term, reasonable wear and tear excepted.

Unless this Agreement has been extended by mutual written agreement of the Parties, there will be no holding over past the Term under the terms of this Agreement under any circumstances. If it becomes necessary to commence legal action to remove the Tenant from the Premises, the prevailing party will be entitled to attorney's fees and costs in addition to damages.
