No it doesn't hurt to ask but the calendar is up to date 99% of the time.
You say it sleeps four but I only see one bedroom: Yes, the cottage is best suited for parties of two. But there is a full sized futon in the living room that can be used as another bed.
Maximum of 4 persons & 2 pets: No exceptions if we have no rental history with you.
Is the cottage on the water or can you see it: Only from the top of the driveway in the winter . The water is 1/2 mile straight down the road. It's a nice walk or bike ride.
How close is the park: The cottage is situated 1.2 miles from the park.
Will we meet you: I mow the lawn, take the trash and live about 70 yards away and do try to say hi, introduce myself and answer any questions if see people and sense that would be welcomed. So Maybe.
What other fees are there: We do not charge the standard 8-15% additional booking fee that you are accustomed to paying elsewhere. The rates are outlined in full on the reservation and payment page.
When will I get my security deposit back: Assuming everything is in order after you leave, most people get their security deposit back within the first 3 days but I am human so if you haven't recieved it in a week email me.
Is it available during the winter: No, I usually close it up and winterize the cottage around mid November.
When will you put the new calendar up: Usually November or December but we are always taking reservations so just ask and you may get in before a price increase.
