Hopefully this list of FAQ's will clarify any questions you have regarding the cabin, area and reservation process. Please don't hesitate to contact us, either by email or phone, with any questions. It's important to us that the cabin will suit your vacation plans and we want to make sure you know exactly what to expect.
How private is the cabin? Are there any neighbors?
The cabin is secluded in a wooded setting and you will not see any neighbors (nor will they see you) from the property.
How many people can it sleep?
The cabin comfortably accommodates up to 2 adults and 2 children, with a Queen size bed in 1 bedroom, and a full over twin size bed in the 2nd bedroom. 550 sq feet makes for a cozy, intimate space. Personally, I wouldn't feel comfortable sharing the cabin with another couple.
What is provided at the cabin and what will I need to bring with me?
The cabin comes equipped with most things you would need for your vacation: Full kitchen (fridge, stove, oven, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, pots/pans/utensils, dishware, salt/pepper), firewood for the fireplace, washer/dryer in the basement, Charcoal grill, cleaning supplies, soap, blankets & pillows, games, dvd library, starter roll of paper towels & toilet paper.
You Will Need To Bring: personal toiletries, groceries, sheets & towels, laundry detergent, extra toilet paper/paper towels, charcoal/lighter fluid for grill, newspaper/kindling for starting a fire. Recommended Items Include: Bug Spray, Bathrobe and flip flops for getting in and out of the hot tub, phone charger.
Do you accept pets? What is the pet fee?
Yes! We love dogs! Up to two well-behaved dogs are welcome (sorry no other pets) provided they are treated with flea/tick prevention, waste is picked up and they are not allowed on beds or furniture at any time. The fee is $25/per day for 1 or 2 dogs. Our canine guests love hiking the woods, taking a dip in the pond and lounging outside on the lawn. Absolutely no hot tub time for the dogs, though. If our housekeeper/caretaker has to pick up after your dog after you leave, additional fees will be deducted from your security deposit.
What are check-in/check out times? Can I arrive earlier or leave later?
Check-in is @ 4pm and check out is @ 11am. With a 90% occupancy rate, the cabin is often booked back to back and our caretaker needs time to properly service the cabin and hot tub between rentals. An earlier check-in may be arranged a few days prior to your arrival date if it turns out there isn’t another guest checking out that day. However, since the housekeeping schedule is set at the time of your reservation, a later check-out time is not possible.
How do I make a reservation?
You best option is to book through our listing on HomeAway or Airbnb. If you click the link to our calendar under the "Rates & Specials" tab, it will bring you to the calendar on our HomeAway site. From there you can scroll up and down to find all the information you need. If you are a returning guest to the Cozy Cabin, you can email me for other options if you like.
Can I pay with a credit card?
You can pay with a credit card through the HomeAway or Airbnb site. Click the link to our availability calendar and it will bring you right to the HomeAway listing.
What is your cancellation policy?
Our cancellation policy is set by HomeAway and Airbnb. Please visit our listing on one of those sites for more information on the cancellation policy.
How do I get the keys?
Once all payments and paperwork is received you will be emailed directions, info about the cabin and instructions for accessing the key. There is a lockbox right on the door with a code for getting the key so you can let yourself in.
How are the roads in the winter? Will I need four wheel drive?
Wintertime access on the roads to the cabin is quite good and our driveway is plowed/sanded in the winter. While 4-wheel drive is not necessary, this is the mountains and an AWD drive vehicle with decent tire tread is highly recommended. Be prepared to shovel your way to the hot tub after a major snowstorm.
Will there be cell phone service? What about Internet?
Cell phone service is spotty at the cabin, that’s why we have an unlimited long distance calling plan on the phone (within the US only). We have no wifi access at the cabin, however there are several great spots in downtown Littleton that offer free wifi. You can also use the computer at the Littleton or Lisbon libraries.
Are there shopping/restaurants nearby?
The nice thing about the cabin is that it is secluded, yet not remote. You can get almost anything you need within a 10 minute drive to Littleton.
What about Power Outages? While power outages are common in rural locations this is not an issue at the Cozy Cabin. We have a generator for back-up power - In the event of a power outage, our caretaker can come over and start it up for you. He lives nearby and can usually come over on short notice.
