Wi-Fi is only available to glampers who rent the yurt and one of the cottages on the main property. If only the yurt is rented, guests will not have Wi-Fi. Additionally, the Wi-Fi's intended purpose is for light Internet usage only, such as checking email or surfing the web. It cannot support streaming and downloads, though short YouTube videos and average Skype calls are permitted.
Due to the level of privacy, there is no cell phone service unless guests go to the tip of the peninsula.
There is a $200.00 refundable damage deposit for the yurt. However, if a disproportionate amount of cleaning is required after glampers have checked out (including, but not limited to, items broken and/or garbage strewn about), the money to replace, repair, and/or for labor will be taken from the damage deposit.
Smoking is not allowed on the premises. Pets are allowed, though only if the glamping property is notified at the time of the reservation. Read More
