Rental Policies

RESERVATION DEPOSIT REQUIREMENTS: You must be 21 years old to make a reservation and occupy a property. We require a valid MasterCard, Visa, Discover or American Express card be provided at the time of booking. A deposit equal to 50% of the base rent required within 5 days of the initial booking of the reservation. This payment should be made by credit card or personal check. The remaining balance including damage deposit, tax if required and other fees (cleaning fee, pet fee, etc.) is due 30 days prior to your arrival date. Payment may be made by credit card or check. If a reservation is made within 30 days of the arrival date, payment in full is required by either MasterCard, Visa, Discover or American Express. Any returned checks will incur a fee of $35.00.

CANCELLATION POLICY: If you find it necessary to cancel your vacation plans, please contact us immediately.  Due to the short rental season in the ADK's the property owners maintain strict cancellation policies.  These property owners rely on the rental income to help cover property taxes and the maintenance expense of waterfront property.  If you cancel the reservation rental payments are non-refundable unless we are able to re-rent the property for the same price and same dates. If the property is re-rented for the same price and same dates, then your payments will be refunded, once we have received payment in full from the new renter. Payments must be received by dates due, as outlined in this Policies & Procedures document and detailed in the Rental Agreement. If payments are not received by dates due, ADK Lakefront Property Management may cancel your reservation due to non-payment. Notification of such cancellation would be sent to you via the email address on file.

DAMAGE DEPOSIT: A damage deposit of either $300 or $500 (amount determined by property owner), will be charged thirty days prior to the arrival date and will be completely credited within two weeks of your departure provided there are no damages to the property, its furnishings or contents, and the property is left in the condition in which it was found. Tenant is responsible for any and all damage done to the property, furnishings or equipment up to and exceeding the damage deposit. The tenant will compensate the Owner directly for all repairs or replacement costs for anything broken or damaged.

CHECK IN TIME: Check-in time is 3:00 p.m. You will be sent directions to the property & the key procedures once we’ve received your final payment. If you have not received directions to the property please call our office the weekday prior to your arrival and we will send them to you via email.

CHECK OUT TIME: Check out time is 10:00 AM. Late check outs are not available if there is another renter scheduled to arrive that day. Unauthorized late check outs will incur a charge of $100/hour, and if the property is not vacated by 3:00 p.m., an additional night’s rent will be charged.

CLEANING SERVICE: The property is cleaned prior to your arrival and after your departure. Daily cleaning service is not provided during your stay.

Evidence of smoking discovered during post departure inspections by ADKLPM or its staff will result in forfeiture of any security deposit. In addition, a fee may be assessed for cleaning services to rid the property of smoke odor.

FURNISHINGS/AMENITIES: Each property is individually owned and furnishings, décor and amenities will vary. Property décor may change from time to time due to owner’s changes or a change in ownership.
