We love furry friends! Here are the rules for dogs:

  • Must be house trained and well-behaved.
  • No dogs under 1 year old.
  • Must be kept on a leash when outside.
  • Not allowed to be alone inside at any time.
  • Expect to keep your dog with you at all times or arrange pet care.
  • Use dog bed provided or use a throw blanket over furniture.
  • Should your dog damage any furniture or cause extra cleaning to occur after check out, you agree to be financially responsible for extra these charges.


Guest may be held financially responsible for any purposeful and/or excessive damage to items, linens, furniture, appliances or structure, and is required to inform the owner immediately if there are damages. We understand accidents happen.

PLEASE do not smoke in the home. This includes: cigarettes, vapes, marijuana, e-cigarettes or cigars. You will be held financially responsible for extra cleaning services/damages if you smoke in the home.


Pool/Hot tub hours: 6am- 11pm. The pool is seasonal; usually open from April to October, weather permitting. The hot tub is open year round.


Check-in time is 4:00pm.

Check-out time is seasonal: October-February is 11:00am. March-September is 10:00am.

Ask if you need a later check-out up to 11:30am. We often can accommodate this at no charge.

Please check and re-check for your belongings before you leave as there will be a minimum of a $25 handling fee if you request that items be shipped back to you. This fee is in addition to the cost of the actual shipping from the post office. All unclaimed items will be donated to the local thrift store after one week.


The cleaning fee is for the clean and sanitized home you arrive to. Please be reasonable, responsible and respectful during your stay.

A note about cleaning fees/check-out requests: Please understand that Tranquility Trails is not a hotel (we offer so much more) and we don’t run it like a hotel. We understand that you are on vacation and that you have paid a cleaning fee. 100% of the fee goes directly to our cleaners. Unlike many other vacation rentals and most hotels, we fully wash and sanitize all linens; including blankets, quilts, sheets and pillow cases between each guest. We also sanitize the couches and throw pillows. We do all of this on top the regular cleaning tasks. This takes 4-6 hours, which is why we kindly request (not require) a little help from you. On behalf of our cleaners, we kindly ask 2 things of you at check out: wash your dishes & remove your trash. If you are short on time, or feel this is too much to ask, we understand. Please be reasonable, responsible and respectful. Thank you.
