Interaction with GuestsI am available to help in any way I can, but I assume guests are coming for privacy and solitude. I respect that and give you privacy. Sometimes I may be out of town. Getting AroundOur mountain passes often have " chain control ". This means chains are required if you do NOT have ALL wheel drive. You can also purchase them on the highway if needed but cost more. Please do not ask me when you book, what the weather will be,weather changes on a dime in the mountains! Other Things to NoteYou do NOT need to lock up when you depart the cottage. There is a key on the hook for when you are staying, but it is the only one, so please do not lock yourselves out!
