8. RENTAL FEES & DEPOSIT:
Reservation Deposit: A deposit of $_________ (50% of rental) is due at time of booking. The deposit is applied toward the rental fees and is subject to our Cancellation Policy as outlined below. If the rental is booked less than 30 days in advance of your stay, the total charges are due upon receipt of this agreement. Reservations will not be confirmed until the deposit is received.

Rental Fee: The balance of the rental fee $___________ plus a $500.00 refundable security deposit, 8% tax, a $59.00 accidental damage protection insurance, and a $200.00 cleaning fee are due 30 days prior to arrival. Upon receipt of your final payment (Contract Total as shown on invoice), we will email you the rental information packet with all the information for your stay.

The security deposit is NOT applied toward rent: However, it is fully refundable within (7) days of the Checkout Date provided no deductions are made due to:
1. dirt or other mess requiring excessive cleaning; (see rental policy/check-out procedure supplement) or
2. any other cost incurred by Homeowner due to Guest’s stay

If the premises appear dirty or damaged upon Check-in, Guest shall inform Homeowner immediately.

9. CANCELLATION POLICY : If Guest wishes to cancel their reservation, any payments made will be refunded as follows:

• Security deposit and cleaning fee are 100% refundable in the case of cancellation

No refunds are given with less than 60 days’ notice prior to the Check-in Date, for any reason, including weather, road conditions, Acts of God, mechanical failures at the rental, and health or personal reasons. If full payment is not received at least 30 days prior to the Check-In Date, Homeowner may, without notice to Guest, treat the failure to pay as a cancellation by Guest of the reservation, may rent the property to another person, and may deal with the Reservation Deposit as provided under Guest Cancellation Policy as a Guest cancellation. A signatory Guest of this agreement must make all payments.

10. PEST CONTROL: We make every effort possible to eliminate the occurrence of pests in our homes. Our home is serviced for pests by a licensed professional exterminator on a regular basis. As many insects are indigenous to our area, we recommend keeping all doors and windows closed and that you do not leave food on counters or tables. No other arrangements, property substitutions, rate adjustments or refunds will be issued for pest related problems.

11. INSURANCE:
• Accidental Damage Insurance: Kids broke a lamp? Cracked a glass table? Mysterious damage to carpets and furniture? No Problem! On The Lake VR is happy to offer Accidental Damage Insurance to our guests. Administered by Travel Guard, the program offers you $3,000 in protection for accidental damage, at an additional non-refundable charge of $59.00. This required coverage fee, in addition to the refundable security deposit fee, must be paid 30 days prior to arrival. This insurance is NOT optional as it’s a great way to ensure you get your full security deposit back, instead of it being withheld due to a covered (accidental) loss. Please note: damage caused by tenant negligence is not covered under accidental damage insurance and will be deducted from your security deposit, if damages exceed your deposit ($500) you will be billed directly.
• We also encourage all renters to purchase travelers insurance. Below are some references you may contact to purchase such insurance:
