  • Garbage – All garbage must be removed from the home at the time of your departure.  If garbage is left, there will be a $25.00 per bag fee to remove it.  Please make sure all garbage is in a recycled manor and in clear garbage bags.  It needs be taken to the Transfer Station located in Old Forge near McCauley Mountain or Inlet for Inlet guests.  It is open during the week and on your departure date.  It may also be put out on Garbage Day in the morning only.  Do not put trash out in the evening as this may attract wildlife.  If garbage is torn apart for any reason, it is the renter’s responsibility to clean up the area.

  • Cancellation Policy – If you should need to cancel your reservation at any time, the rental agent will do her best to rebook the same time period  you had originally booked with another renter. If the agent is unsuccessful in renting the same time period to another renter,  the rental deposit will be forfeited . The full amount of the time needs to be re booked.  Partial times do not count as the full booking.

    If the agent is able to rebook the same time period with another renter, then there will be a $75.00 cancellation fee.   This fee will be deducted from your original rental deposit and the remainder will be mailed back to you.

  • Rental Homes Listed For Sale – You may have rented a home through Julie Liddle’s Adirondack Vacation Rental Homes that may be listed For Sale through a real estate office. During your stay, an agent may call to ask if they can show the property. They will only do this if they can’t make arrangements for a showing to take place during the turn over time of Friday or Saturday depending on the home. The Agents will try their best not to disturb you in any way. We appreciate your cooperation and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

  • Internet Connection – Some of our homes offer Internet connection but not all. Those homes that do have Internet connects are not always guaranteed.  Wifi does go out in this area and when it does it doesn’t always come right back on. Please note that if your home says it offers internet  it is NOT GUARANTEED.  Some do have hotspots near them from time to time but again not guaranteed. You can go to the local library in Old Forge on Crosby Blvd. or to the Point Park in Old Forge in the center of town to get internet service but this too is not guaranteed.

  • Rental Information – Please note each home is privately owned and all offer different amenities and they are not guaranteed.
  • Amenities – Each home is privately owned & offers different amenities. They are all equipped with basic cooking and eating utensils, small appliances, pillows, blankets and basic cleaning supplies. Availability of TV, VCR, DVD, cable, CD player, radio, internet, phone, BBQ, washer & dryer, lawn and deck furniture, picnic table, outside fire pits, outside furniture, firewood, etc. varies from property to property and  sometimes things change so the amenities to each home are not guaranteed.​

  • If the home offers a gas grill, the only way to deal with propane usage is as follows, Each home has one propane tank.  If for some reason the propane goes out during your stay, you will need to go to the local store to do a propane exchange or Helmers fuel to have the tank filled.  Please keep the receipt and leave it with the key upon your departure.  When your damage deposit is returned to you, I will refund the money you paid to have the tank filled.  Sorry for the inconvenience however, this is the only way to deal with this without leaving full bottles of propane sitting at each home.

  • Renters will need to bring their own sheets and towels, (bath, kitchen, beach) clear garage bags and paper products to each of the rental homes except for the Albedor. The rental homes do offer pillows and blankets. These items need to be brought by the renter. Bed sizes will be given to you as well as garbage pick up day. Please note – we are unable to do laundry on turn over days so they are not cleaned after each stay.

  • If the home offers a fireplace or fire pit,   Firewood will have to be purchased by the renter in the area. There are stands that sell firewood all over town and the quick stops sell it. Fires are to be kept under control.  Outdoor fires and ashes must be doused with water if you plan to leave it unattended.  Outdoor fires are not permitted unless there is a designated spot for them.  Fires made in indoor fireplaces are to be kept small.  Do not burn pine in indoor fireplaces or woodstoves.  Know the location of fire extinguishers. Do not cut down any trees/limbs  on the property for firewood.

  • Sorry No Pets or Smoking – This does not mean the home is allergy/smoke free, no pets or smoking are allowed in any of our rental homes by our renters. We do have a local kennel in the area if you need it. Please be kind to the owners property. Treat it as you would your own.
  • Booking For Next Summer – I will be taking reservation for the Summer of 2022 after the 1st of the year 2022.  please give me a call and or take a look at my website, it will be up to date with the weeks each home will be open and I will better be able to help you.  I look forward to speaking to you in January.

  • I start taking reservations for Winter 2022 – in the late spring or early summer for the winter season that is coming up.

  • Summers are Only Weekly Rentals – unless at the last-minute (two weeks to 10 days) before, If  I have something open then I will do a minimum of a 3 night stay (some homes will do a 2 night stay but not all) The 3 night stay rates you see on the site are for the fall and some winter weekends as well as last minute bookings for summer.

  • NY State Sales Tax – Any rental stay over 1 week, you will not have to pay NY state sales tax. If you stay less than one week, then we will have to add (8.25%) NY state sales tax to the rental rate.

  • Errors & Omissions – The information contained herein is subject to errors and omissions. Property availability is subject to prior booking, sale or withdrawal without notice. Each home is privately owned so items and offerings can change from time to time without notice and are not always guaranteed.​
