What to bring ... (or not to bring)
From mid-May to mid-October you should bring sheets, blankets, pillowcases, and towels. If you play tennis or Pickleball, be sure to bring your racquet, and if you like, feel free to bring your own lawn games. By all means bring canoes, kayaks and sailboats, although we rent aluminum canoes kayaks and Sunfish. Bring life preservers (PFDs) because New York State law requires that there be one aboard for each person in any boat and that children under 12 wear a preserver at all times in the boats. If you don't have any PFDs, we rent them here for $1.00 each for the length of your stay. Just let us know when you arrive. Do not bring outboard motors. Our rental outboards are 6HP on 14 foot rowboats. Larger boats or motors are not permitted on our docks. Please be aware that in compliance with NYS Law, we do not rent or allow operation of outboard motors to anyone under 18 years of age, unless they present a valid boaters license. Please turn off your car alarms while you are here, and your cell phone when on the beach.
Your house should be clean when you arrive. If you have any problems, please let us know immediately. You are responsible for cleaning the house before you leave. Please remember that during the summer, the next family will be arriving very soon after your departure. If the house is not left as you found it, you could be charged an additional fee for cleaning. For your convience, all houses are equipped with vacuum cleaners and cleaning products.
Check In and Check Out
To adhere to CDC and NYS state disinfection and sanitation guidelines during COVID19, check in time will not be permitted earlier than 5:00PM during the summer. You are welcome to come earlier and visit the beach, but be aware that your house will not be ready for use before this time.
Off season rentals should ask before their arrival if the house will be ready earlier.
Checkout time is a strict 9:00 a.m. during the summer season. If you are late leaving the house you may be charged for an extra day.
At other times of the year you may stay as late in the day as you wish. We will let you know if someone is arriving the same day as your departure and how this may affect your checkout time.
