Vacation Guidelines for YOU

Chalet Village was acquired by Cabins for YOU. The policies below reflect those of Vacations for YOU.

Information for YOU

Please be sure to read any community guidelines or county/state-specific rules included in your pre-arrival communication. Remember that some vacation rentals are located within communities with permanent residents and may have additional rules in place.

  1. Depending on your market, keep in mind that you may encounter steep driveways/roads, snow/icy weather, curious wildlife, and cellular/connection issues during your stay. 
  2. We sincerely strive to provide a wonderful, stress-free vacation during the moments you occupy one of our professionally managed properties.  Amongst the staff, we often refer to this belief as our “vacation philosophy.” 
  3. Vacations for YOU Member check-in starts at 3 PM.  Non-member check-in starts at 4 PM. All reservations are guaranteed a check-in by 6 PM.
  4. Departure (checkout) time is before 10:00 AM.
  5. For properties with hot tubs, PH and sanitation levels are analyzed and adjustments are made (if necessary) to keep them in balance between each stay. When levels can’t be stabilized, the hot tub will be drained, refilled, and treated. Please allow several hours for the water to reach its optimum temperature. Leave the lid on when the unit is not in use.  
  6. Be a conscious advocate of your temporary vacation home and the time it takes to properly prepare for each new guest. Please report any issues as soon as possible, but no later than 24 hours from your listed arrival time.
  7. Be cautious of potential noise ordinances. Excessive noise and foul language should be avoided. We call this approach our “Good Neighbor Policy.”
  8. Keep all electronics, appliances, and furniture in working order.
  9. We love pets; however, please respect the pet policy of each individually owned property.
  10. Please be respectful when choosing to smoke while on vacation. All of our properties prohibit smoking inside of the vacation rental.  
  11. Please follow and observe all applicable state laws during your vacation.
  12. As time may present, we humbly ask that you observe our basic departure requirements as you prepare to leave our wonderful community. This approach encourages each guest to help facilitate in the success of each future reservation. For more information on commonly asked questions, please visit our policies page

These devices should not be tampered with in any way and any damages to equipment will be charged to the guest.

Unless specifically approved in writing, pets, as well as animals of any kind, are not allowed, with the exception of recognized and approved service animals.

Pets are not allowed in pools, hot tubs, bathtubs, or showers. 

Unless the animal accompanies the GUESTS AT ALL TIMES, the GUESTS MUST bring and use a suitable pet container/crate during the duration of their stay. Animals must be leashed outside. Animals found left unaccompanied in the PROPERTY will result in a penalty fee of $ 500.00.

  • Scratched floors, walls, doors, trim, furniture, etc.
  • Damage to carpet, rugs, blinds or any other items in the property
  • Excessive pet hair and slobber
  • Extra cleaning and flea treatments

Addressing Vacation Rental Issues

We service vacation rentals based on immediacy and severity of issues, so low-priority items (minor appliances, trash, etc.) or items that require work from an outside vendor can take longer to be resolved. High-priority items ( alarms, large appliances, etc.) will be addressed as soon as possible, and immediate issues (cleaning, HVAC, plumbing, etc.) will be priority. We will make every effort to resolve your issue during your stay; however, circumstances sometimes arise that make this option unavailable.

Water Quality/Quantity

With properties located in remote areas, including the mountains and ocean, water quality may not always be what you are accustomed to.
