Please take conversations inside the home after 10pm. It is against the law to discharge any fire arms in any subdivision in Fremont County. There are areas for target practice please give us a call and we can guide you to these areas. If rules are not followed you will be asked to leave with out any refund compensation.
*Dirt Roads in Yellowstone Country: please drive carefully and under the speed limits to not cause excess dust. Our vacation rental is located in subdivisions in and around other people. Please be respectful of neighbors.
*Drinking Water: We suggest that anyone visiting Yellowstone Country to bring drinking water. Yellowstone and surrounding cities like Island Park, ID is a volcanic area making it one of the largest of its kind in the world. The ground is very porous. Seasonal storms and spring run off can cause high water tables which creates a higher possibility of ground water contamination. Water wells are treated quarterly but there is no guarantee of drinkable water due to the fluctuation of the water tables. Please keep in mind that you are in wilderness areas and we do not have water treatment facilities like the larger cities do so water contamination may be possible at times.
*WIFI: Not all of our units have Wifi. Even if your cabin does have Wifi, we are in a wilderness area causing less than high speed internet more often than not. Please keep in mind that a high density of guests in Island Park will cause internet and tower signals to be disrupted as well.

*Free Trash Pickup: SUMMER TIME – If you are departing on Wednesday or Thursday, we offer Free Trash Pickup at 10 AM when you depart.

*Blocked Toilets: We test all toilets prior to your arrival to ensure they are in working order. If you arrive at cabin and have a problem please contact us when you arrive not when you are departing. Sewer/septic systems are fragile and can not handle feminine hygiene items and large amounts of toilet paper. These items will block toilets and sewer lines.

If you are renting more than one cabin to accommodate your large family gathering, please to not move items from one cabin to another. This includes kitchen items and towels. A $20 an hour fee will be charged if we have to track down and switch items from one cabin to the other.
Guests moving between the cabins will respect the neighborhood and refrain from loud noise and boisterous behavior on the roads; particularly late at night.
Guests will keep in mind at all times that there are neighbors who treasure the peace and tranquility of this serene locale, who also value access to their driveways, and who are quick to complain if our guests create problems.
Guests from multiple cabins will not spend the bulk of their rental time at a cabin other than the cabin in which they are sleeping. Having people from one cabin spend most of their time at another cabin unfairly burdens that cabin, creates a risk of sewer/septic backup, and creates a risk of neighbor complaints.
Please park ALL your vehicles, towing trailers, boats, snowmobiles, and ATV’s on the cabin property.
If you do not have enough room, please let us know and we will find an additional parking for you.

*Weather and Water Levels in Lakes and Streams:
-We can not control the weather and the storm systems. Our temperatures range from 35 degrees to 80 degrees in the summer and 30 degrees below zero to 40 degrees in the winter.
-We try to keep the driveways plowed and decks shoveled before each renter, but sometimes the storms do surprise us.
-Fremont County plows Hwy 20 first and then the side county roads.
-Each subdivision has a private snow removal company on contract and they will plow the roads per their contract with the homeowners.
-None of the cabins have air-conditioners. Ceiling fans and windows open at night will help cool the cabins down during the day in the summer.
*Be Aware Of Water Levels: WATERFRONT CABINS – Guests bringing BOATS and/or WATER TOYS! Island Park Reservoir water levels start going down usually mid August but is NOT uncommon to see levels declining anytime in early-mid July. Water levels can also depend on how much snow we have received the previous winter. The reservoir is used for farming in the lower elevations. Please be aware of water levels when renting a cabin with a private dock or waterfront subdivisions if water sports are why you chose the property you are renting. We do not issue refunds for water levels being low as this is out of our control. You can still bring your water toys as there are many lakes and rivers in and around the Island Park and Yellowstone areas that may have sufficient water for the use of your water craft. Water levels typically do not decline in other areas like Island Park Reservoir does.
