We think our home is a great place to enjoy your stay visiting State College. In an effort to make sure only nice, responsible guests stay at our home, we have a few reasonable rules:
• Please Keep Things Clean (Cleaning Policy):
Although we do make certain our home is properly cleaned prior to your arrival, the small cleaning fee you pay as part of the reservation is intended only for the purpose of laundering linens, sheets, towels, and sanitizing. It is not intended for general housekeeping clean-up. For example, if you use dishes then kindly wash and put them back; if you use the stove or microwave then kindly clean it. There is a dishwasher and cleaning supplies in the kitchen for your use. Also, if you move furnishings, then please kindly return them to their original places before you check-out.
With the exception of linens, sheets, and towels, if for some reason you're not able to clean up by the end of your stay, then please let us know as soon as possible so that we can have it cleaned without any surprises. At the sole discretion of the host, when housekeeping/cleaning are necessary then there will be a minimum $45 USD additional charge, depending on severity. To avoid additional charges we ask all guests to kindly clean-up after themselves and to return our home in at least as good condition as you receive it.
• No Smoking Indoors (Smoking Policy):
If you must smoke, please do so outside and properly dispose of butts/debris. When guest smokes inside or smoke/odor/butt/debris removal is necessary, then the guest will forfeit the entire security deposit automatically.
• Quiet Time (Noise Policy):
We want you to enjoy your stay but please understand that the town has noise ordinance laws: quiet time after 10pm. We ask that you do not stay out on the deck past 10pm because noise travels easily outdoors and our neighbors would appreciate your general courtesy during quiet time. Please, no rude or disrespectful behavior. When neighbor complains or guest violates our noise policy, then the guest will forfeit the entire security deposit automatically and may be asked to leave.
• Pet Fee (Pet Policy):
With prior written authorization, pets may be permitted with an additional pet fee of $30 USD per pet per day. This modest fee allows us to help offset the cost of special pet sanitizing so that future guests may also enjoy their stay. When a pet enters the property without our prior written authorization, then the guest will forfeit the entire security deposit automatically and may be asked to leave.
• Additional People (Non-listed Guest Policy):
People other than those listed in guest reservation are not permitted on the property without our prior written approval. When an additional person or people enter the property without our prior written authorization, then the guest will forfeit the entire security deposit automatically and may be asked to leave.
• Damages / Loss Deposit:
We understand that accidents may happen and in the rare event that it does, we'd like to know that you'll be responsible. Therefore, when our property gets damaged, goes missing, or we otherwise endure a loss then you'll be charged for the damage/loss.
The home is privately owned. The host/owner/agent(s) are not responsible for any accidents, injuries or illness that occur while on the premises. The host/owner/agent(s) are not responsible for the loss of personal property or valuables of the guest. Guest stays at their own risk and agrees to fully indemnify host/owner/agent(s) from any and all losses. No photography or video allowed inside our home without prior written permission.
Okay, great...you read all the rules and you're still here--you're probably a nice, responsible guest...just the kind of guest we'd love to have stay in our home!
