LOCATION:

The Victoria is located just a few hundred feet below the summit on the north side of the mountain. The Interconnect lift is the chair lift that takes you to the area of the mountain where our house is located. If that lift (which you can see outside our back door) is not operating, the only way to return to the home is to have security shuttle you back to the home or park a vehicle in the parking lot. The lift is typically open from 9AM – 3:45PM 7 days during the ski season. The lift closes as 3:45PM to allow ski patrol to guide everyone off that section of the mountain before the day passes expire at 4:30PM and night falls. Night skiing is typically available between 4PM and 9PM Wednesday through Saturday beginning the day after Christmas on the lit runs directly in front of the lodge. The Interconnect run is never operational during night skiing as runs on the north side of the mountain are not lit for night skiing.

The Victoria will be ready for occupancy at 5:00 PM on the first day of the lease and must be vacated by 11:00 AM on the ending date of the lease.

FIRE PIT/DECK/GRILL:

The Victoria is a wood structure and is located in a wooded and often windy area; it is of utmost importance that you adhere to the following rules.

Do not leave fires unattended and always throw water on fire when finished. Do not drag uncut logs or trees on fire; Firewood can be purchased at all of the local gas stations. Do not break branches off trees in area to use as kindling. Do not use charcoal grills on deck or leave burning grill unattended. Do not discard burning embers, charcoal, ashes on ground; Dump into fire pit or wait until cool and bury. No fireworks may be discharged on or near the property; No exceptions. Do not move deck chairs to the fire pit area. Three metal benches are provided. If you require additional seating, please bring your own camping chairs.

 

PRECAUTIONS:

4WD is highly recommended during the ski season; this ski-in, ski-out home is directly on the ski hill: snow and ice are probable. The street is plowed regularly by Boyne, but we can’t guarantee that it will always be clear of snow and ice. DesWynn recommends waiting to drive up or down the drive until the plow truck has come through and plowed the streets and drive.

It is lessee’s responsibility to keep deck and walkways clean during your stay; a snow shovel is located in the garage.  Please do not use salt or sand on deck.

Upon arrival during the ski season, first drive a 4WD vehicle to the home to check the road conditions. If the roads are too difficult for 2WD vehicles you should park them in the ski-area parking at the bottom of the hill and use a 4WD vehicle to "run shuttle". The roads and drive are plowed regularly; however, immediately after snowfall the roads can be VERY difficult.  Please use good judgment.

There is often melting snow from the roof that falls on the deck and then re-freezes. Please be careful! Renting this home constitutes lessee’s acknowledgment that there will be ice and snow / slippery conditions, and you agree by making your rental payment to be fully responsible for your own safety and to not hold liable DesWynn Rental Properties, our agents and employees for any mishap that may occur during your stay.
