2.     Check-In/Check-Out Time: Check-in is at 5:00pm and we cannot guarantee check-in by 5:00pm during holidays and peak season, where your patience will be greatly appreciated in these instances. Guest who will be arriving later than 5:00pm should refer to your confirmation notifications for check-in location and late arrival instructions. Absolute check-out time is 10:00am so we may prepare for our next arrival.

3.     Rates are based on property features, location, and season, and can be found listed on this website. Rates are subject to change without notice. For long term rentals, please contact us, or call us at (802) 422-3553. Cleaning charge, sales tax, administration and booking fee will be added to all reservations. These fees will vary with each property.

4.     Rental Payments: Final rental payments are due in full 30 days prior to arrival.  Final rental payments for Holiday Reservations are due 60 days prior to arrival.  Payments may be made by cash, traveler’s check, bank money order, credit card or personal check with proper identification. Credit cards will not be accepted for long term stays. In the event of cancellation, the property must be re booked in order to obtain a refund, less a 10% re booking fee. To protect against the loss of your rental payments, travel insurance is strongly recommended.

5.     Advance Rent Payment: 20% of total rent amount is required at the time of initial reservation.  30% of total rent is required within seven (7) days from the date of booking.  The 30% payment of total rent is required to be submitted by check or funds transfer, payable to Trailside Management, Inc. If the advance rent is not received within 7 days of booking, your reservation will be cancelled.  The final 50% payment of total rent due is required 60 days prior to arrival for all Holiday reservations and 30 days prior to arrival for all non-Holiday reservations.  Failure to meet the required Reservation Payment Deadlines will result in the Cancellation of the Reservation.  Reservations made within 30 days prior to arrival require an electronic check or credit card advance rent payment upon booking. Advance rent payment is only refundable if the property is rebooked.

6.     Cancellation of Reservations: Please contact our office as soon as possible in the event you must cancel or change properties.  We will only refund your advance/final rental payments if the property is re-rented for the same time period and rate, less a 10% cancellation fee. Once your reservation has been confirmed, any cancellations date or property changes will be subject to this cancellation policy. To prevent loss of rental payments we strongly recommend purchasing Travel Insurance.
