House rules include:

All potential guests must complete a rental application where you will be asked to provide a full guest list, ages of all guests, the name address and employer of the primary applicant as well as their home insurance policy details. No reservation is confirmed until approved by the owner. The application will form the basis of your short-term lease agreement with the cottage owner and you understand and agree that you will abide by the terms therein. We will see you when you check in. If you have misrepresented yourself (your age, purpose of use) or your group, we reserve the right to cancel your stay without refund. If we find out after the fact you have automatically forfeited your damage deposit for breach of contract. We are looking for mature individuals who can be responsible for their actions, and show respect.
Rates are subject to change until your reservation is confirmed.
Linen, beach & bath towels included.
Pets may be permitted at this rental solely based on the discretion of the owner and your will be asked to sign a pet waiver and possibly to pay an additional pet cleaning fee. 
No smoking, electronic or otherwise, inside the cottage.
Open fires in fire pit only please & check burn restrictions for area before you arrive.
Fireworks are NOT permitted.
Please leave the cottage as you found it, tidy and with all garbage disposed of per the welcome letter. Note there may be a garbage removal fee of $500 per week. The initial cleaning fee pays for professional cleaners to prepare the cottage for you. A check out clean may be arranged for an additional fee, otherwise you are expected to leave the cottage as you found it, tidy and in good repair.
WIFI is available at all of our cottages (unless specifically noted) but the service is not unlimited as this is cell based and extremely expensive. Streaming video services such as NetFlix, FaceBook, YouTube etc are not permitted, nor is online gaming. 5GB/ week is included. Overage will be billed at $10/GB.
Water activities, including motorized and non-motorized boating, are inherently dangerous. You indemnify the owners and their agents for any and all activities related to water activities.
To ensure the quiet enjoyment of the lake by our neighbours, music or loud noise of any kind not permitted after 10pm or before 8am.
Should you violate these terms you may be subject to an extra nuisance charge equal to the damage deposit as well as eviction without refund.

Resort Fee: For a one-time fee of $125.00, the Accidental Damage Limited Waiver of Liability will waive a claim against the Guest for the cost to repair or replace any accidental damage taking place at the property during the rental period for up to a total of $3,000.00 in damages. The Accidental Damage Limited Waiver of Liability only applies to accidental damage as determined by Muskoka District Rentals. A damage deposit will still be required for casual damages, internet overage charges, extra cleaning charges, garbage disposal, pet cleanup, etc. The Accidental Damage Limited Waiver is not Insurance.


Please leave the cottage as you found it and have a wonderful time at the lake!

Best regards,

The MDR Team
