All we ask is that you please treat our home like it's your own. This has been a family home for 3 generations. Please thoroughly clean kitchen and bathrooms, set garbage in container beside west door, and wash and dry linens, bath and kitchen towels and washcloths in new washing machine and dryer. If you have time please make beds before leaving with extra linens. Please NO SMOKING inside the house. Please do not open windows letting in dust and insects as we have excellent new a/c units on every floor. Please store paddleboat upside down on or next to the dock. Please know this is a lake cabin surrounded by farmland. There are some insects, critters, wildlife, etc. around the house and in the yard. Think more Little House on the Prairie than the Hilton. If you enjoy the outdoors and all that comes with it you will enjoy yourself:). More information is found in our guest book in the cabin. Thanks very much and enjoy your stay!

Response from Kent:
Forrest. Sorry for the heat. Noticed the AC was set on 76 upstairs and that the shades were up letting in sunlight upstairs. Wish you would have contacted me I could have helped trouble shoot, provided a window unit, etc.
