Rental Information

Cabin Rental Info

Once you have selected a cabin to rent please call or email us as soon as possible as all reservations are made on a first come, first served basis. Once you have requested a cabin with us, we will send out our Rental Application Form and the Term and Conditions form and mail completed forms back to us with the required deposit. Once approved, your cabin confirmation will be sent back to you.

Payment Schedule and Security Deposit

Rental fees vary depending on each cabin’s features, location and size. Great West Cabins charges an administrative fee of $50.00 with each rental. A 50% deposit of the total amount is required to secure your cabin with the outstanding balance and security deposit due 60 days prior to the first day of your stay. If an approved booking is made less than 60 days prior to the rental period, the full amount is due (including security deposit) with the Cabin Rental Application and can be paid by either Visa or Mastercard. Please note that no charges will be placed on the card until the reservation has been confirmed. All payments made within 60 days of a rental period must be made by either Visa or Mastercard. Only upon receipt of guaranteed funds will short notice bookings be considered for approval. A VISA credit card can also be used as a security deposit. When providing credit cards for security deposit purposes, the card must have a valid expiry date effective at least 60 days beyond the end of the rental period.

The security deposit for each cabin is $500.00 unless otherwise indicated and is due along with any outstanding balance.

Directions & Access

Keys and directions to the cabin will be mailed to you 1- 2 weeks prior to occupancy, however, in some instances, keys may be picked up at a neighboring cabin.

Rental Etiquette

All cabins are privately owned and as such should be treated with the same respect and care you would as though it was yours. Each cabin contains an information package. This package provides valuable information regarding local marinas, watercraft rental info, locations of interest and attractions, local restaurants, grocery stores, and other tourist information. This package will also provide specific information for your cabin regarding “house rules” that have been set forth by the cabin owner. It also contains inventory, cleaning lists and emergency numbers. This package will also usually contain detailed information on garbage disposal, water/hot water and septic systems that are specific to the cabin you have rented. These are areas you will want to pay particular attention to as the water and septic systems can be very sensitive to heavy usage and can leave you “high and dry” if used improperly or excessively. As most cabins use either well or lake water, you should note if and where (ie. kitchen sink) the water is filtered. Generally speaking, if not specified, bottled water is a good idea. We encourage you to read through this package as early as possible as you are responsible for following those guidelines. If you are unable to locate this package, please call our office as soon as possible.

In the event of accidental breakage of property, we politely ask that you contact Great West Cabins as soon as possible as a matter of courtesy to the cabin owner and subsequent renters. (Please note that cabins are routinely inspected between rentals and any overlooked deficiencies are usually quickly discovered by the owner or subsequent renters)

Your cabin has been stocked with all the necessary consumables for you to enjoy. We kindly ask that you replace all items that are used up, including, but not limited to, propane, condiments, and cleaning products.  Your cabin must be left clean and tidy for the owner or subsequent renter.  A cleaning checklist is provided and it is the renters responsibility to ensure the cabin is thoroughly cleaned prior to check out.  (If cleaning is included in the price of your rental we will reiterate this in the confirmation letter.) All garbage including beverage cans are to be taken with you and disposed of properly as outlined in the package. Failure to replace consumables, tidy and clean the cabin, and remove ALL garbage will result in charges being levied against the security deposit.

The rental period, unless otherwise stated is Saturday to Saturday with check in at 4 p.m. and check out at 11 a.m. The cabin owner or designate will be responsible for checking the cabin between these times.
