Important Guest Information
Dear Valued Guest,
Please familiarize yourself with the following suite use policies:
- Please do not use the deadbolt on the main entrance door as a door stop. This may cause damage to the door frame.
- Units that have electric blinds will be clearly marked and should NOT be used manually as this causes permanent damage. Blinds should be operated using the remote or wall mounted panel only. Please do not pull on these or try to fix them, please contact our team if you have issues.
- Due to our remote location, power outages can occur and we advise you to familiarize yourself with the instructional guide provided in the section below.
- Please note that we are on a septic system and as such all cooking grease should be disposed of in the garbage and only disposable toiletries should be flushed.
- Please note that drone use is strictly prohibited.
- Mosquitos can be quite bothersome in summer months and we suggest that all windows be closed at dusk and dawn when they are most active.
- BBQ’s and any sources of open flame are prohibited as per Strata Bylaw.
- Dryer sheets should not be used in the vent-less dryer found in your suite.
Power Outage Notice
Please note in fall/winter due to high winds it can be common for our property to lose power. The cottages are equipped with a backup generator system that is turned on by an onsite crew member, and then needs to be switched on manually in each unit.
If the power goes out:
Allow 15 mins+ for the backup generator to be turned on.
Then, find the cottage electrical panels – they are commonly behind canvas artwork in the master bedroom or hallway.
Open both panels. You should see two large breakers, one for main power one for emergency power. Both breakers cannot be on at the same time. Switch the main breaker off, slide the vertical metal strip and hold it in place to allow the emergency breaker to then be switched on.
Please note that not all outlets and appliances will operate as the backup power is minimal. Power will be active to a couple kitchen counter outlets, the fridge, the microwave, fireplace, and pot lights in the hall and living room.
Once the power is restored, you will need to follow the steps in the electrical panel in reverse order.
If you have any questions, please come see us at Guest Reception (if during office hours) or call the after-hours phone at 778-535-6027.
