Sandy Cottage vacation rental policies

Duration of rental: In our peak season, Sandy Cottage usually books for seven-day, six-night intervals from Monday at 1 p.m. through anytime Sunday. (By prearrangement, there may be an option to stay till 8 a.m. Monday for no extra charge.) The rest of the year, a two-night minimum applies; arrive anytime after 1 p.m. and linger as long as you wish on the day of departure.

Number of people: Six maximum, including children old enough to walk.

Reservations and payment: Book online, via email or by phone. A deposit of 50 percent holds your reservation. Pay by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover or personal U.S. check made out to Shorewood Adventures Inc. You will receive an email confirmation. Fourteen days prior to your arrival date (or as noted below), the balance is due and will be charged to the card on file unless you make other arrangements. If the balance is not received and we have no word from you, we will assume you’re not coming, may rent the cottage to someone else and will keep your deposit.

Cancellation policy: You will receive a full refund if, with the exception noted below, you cancel 14 days* or more before your rental commences and paid by check or cash. If you paid via credit card, a 3 percent transaction fee may be deducted from the refund. If you cancel with fewer than 14 days until the rental commences, we will refund the deposit in full (less any transaction fees) if we can rent Sandy Cottage for the same period, same price or will adjust the amount of the refund to the extent we cannot. If the owners must cancel your reservation for some unforeseen reason, and we reserve the right to do so, monies paid will be refunded in full. *For reservations of more than two weeks, we may require a one-month cancellation notice and will so notify you within a couple weeks of your making the reservation.

Refund policy: Once you’re here, we do not issue a refund if the weather is poor or you leave early.

Pets: Want to bring Fido? Discuss with your host prior to booking. Usual fee for a pet dog is $25 per day.

Quiet hours are observed from 11 p.m. to 8 a.m.

Smoking is permissible outdoors. (And no butts on the ground, please.)

An outdoor fireplace on a beach patio is available when the breeze is offshore. No other open fires are permitted.

Children under 12 must have adult supervision on the beach.

Enjoyment of the beach and cottage is for registered guests only.

Parking space for two cars is available. No parking or maneuvering room is available for boats, RVs or similar toys.

Footwear worn to the beach remains outside to preserve wood floors.

Sandy Cottage is on a one-lane residential drive. Since you're enjoying a getaway, please yield to other vehicles in the lane by ducking into a driveway, never on someone's grass. Keep speed to 15 miles per hour or less.
