  • 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.

  • 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.
