  1. Booking deposit: Each reservation requires the first night as a Non-refundable deposit on a credit card at the time of booking.  Please note, holiday weekends (Memorial day, 4th of July, Labor day), Special Events, Large Groups, and Sturgis Bike week have special non-refundable/non-cancellable policies that go into effect at the time of booking.

  2. Contact-free Check-in Instructions: Any time after 3:00 p.m. MT. The remaining balance will be due upon check-in or will be run on the card on file at 6:00 p.m. on the scheduled day of arrival. (Homeowner suggests Guest arrive before dark to assure they can locate the property and access it accordingly as some properties are in remote locations)

  3. Check-Out Instructions: Before 10:00 a.m. MT. (Late Check Outs can only be arranged with prior notice.  After a 30 min grace period, the property reserves the right to charge up to $200.00 an hour for late check-outs.) We are not able to refund early checkouts.

  4. Cancellation Policies: If you find yourself in a situation that may prevent you from arriving at your scheduled check-in date, please contact us immediately so we can help you make any arrangements needed.  If you need to cancel your reservation, you must do so at least 7 days prior to your stay (via email).  Your cancellation will not be confirmed until you receive an email confirmation.

  5. No-Show Policy: If you find yourself in a situation that may prevent you from arriving at your scheduled check-in date, please contact us immediately so we can help you make any arrangements needed.  If you do not show for the first night of the reservation, your reservation will be canceled and you will be charged for the remaining nights.

  6. Non-Smoking Policy: All of our properties and the surrounding areas are Non-Smoking. In addition, we ask that you stay at least 25 feet away from all doorways when smoking. We are in a heavily wooded area in a generally very dry area.  

  7. Pets Policy: Although we love pets and have one of our own, only a few of our properties are Pet-Friendly.  Only one (1) Pet Dog is permitted in Pet-Friendly properties with prior approval. (Pet Fee Applies) Pets are not allowed in guest rooms. You will be charged an additional $250.00 cleaning fee and your stay will be terminated if it is discovered that you have brought a pet to any of our non-Pet-Friendly properties.
