Let It Snow

  • We will clear the main walks within 12 hours of any snowfall. 
  • Because we want to respect your privacy, we will not clear the porches or steps unless you ask us to.


  • The cabin is insulated very well. We have found that setting the thermostat at 65 assures that the upstairs is comfortable and that the downstairs doesn’t get too warm. 
  • If it is cold outside, you can close the shades to insulate the cabin even more. If you close the upstairs blinds before bed this will also help the cabin heat more evenly. 
  • Of course, you can set the thermostat at any temperature you like and you do not have to close the blinds.
