Welcome to Timberlost !! You must be 25 or older to book Timberlost.
Non smoking in cottage. Sorry - No Pets. Drinking water is provided, well water is for dishes and bathing. Septic system is small and environmentally sensitive, so guests are asked to be water conscious. Grease can is under sink.
We hope you enjoy your stay. Please help yourselves to any condiments, spices, etc. in the fridge and kitchen cabinets. However, please take any leftovers home with you along will any garbage as there is no pick up.
Water - Timberlost is an environmentally sensitive location, please take special care on water and septic use. Occasionally, you may smell the minerals in the water, won’t hurt you and is great for showers and cooking, but drinking water is provided in the cooler (spare bottle is under the stairs).
Upon arrival, please go under the stairs and turn on the breakers marked “water pump” and “Hot” water tank. You will also have to shut these breakers off once you depart.
Of note, there is a light switch outside to the right of the entry door, in a grey box. These are the outside spot lights that really make night time spectacular. Just turn them off before bedtime.
Heat – Timberlost can be heated by electric base boards. Upstairs independently per room. Main control is on the wall at the entry. Turn the dial up or down, but only down to the mark noted. A nice source of heat and ambiance comes from the high efficiency wood stove. Paper and kindling should be used to start the fire. Smoke may come into the cabin only until the draft up takes over. If that happens, please open a window to help create the draft. Wood is located beside the stove and should be replenished with the outside wood as required. Do Not overload the stove. Damage can occur, with a possible chimney fire if the stove gets too hot. Usually one or two small logs at a time are good and there is a damper control to the lower right of the stove used to slow down the burn time. We usually run the damper in the middle, a little lower at bedtime. Fire bucket for ashes is located outside beside the door and should be used when cleaning out the stove. Leave ashes outside, you can also dump these in the creek without any harm.
BBQ – nothing like a Weber – Please make sure propane is off after cooking and grill is cleaned. Spare tank is close by, just in case.
TV/DVD player – there is a selection of DVD’s for viewing. Turn on systems by turning on the power bar first, select HDMI input on TV and DVD on the Stereo. Use the remotes for control. An HDMI cable is loose on top of the mantle for laptop of external hard drive use. For the kids…there is a Game Cube and DVD Player upstairs in the media room with a wide selection of games and movies.
Departure Day – please strip the beds and leave sheets on the rocking chair in the bedroom. Clean and put away all dishes, take left overs, garbage (including recyclables) with you. Leave cupboards below kitchen sink open. All lights off, upstairs thermostats to be turned all the way down to the off position. Main thermostat turned down to the lower mark (58’), Turn Water and Hot Water breakers to OFF. Leave carport light on only. Pull door closed and press the lock symbol.
As with any Bn’B we are on the honor system and we have a local Sheriff that drives by on our behalf. Should you have any questions, problems or concerns, please contact Jeff and or Cindy direct dial to (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN).
We sincerely hope you enjoy your stay at Timberlost and look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
ALL Garbage needs to be taken with you. Turn water and water heater on and off by breaker panel located under stairs as you walk in and Off when you leave. All remaining food and beverages must be taken with you - please no leave behinds. Baseboard heating if needed - please turn down upon exiting ( turn main floor down to mark on the thermostate). Please leave only the carport light on when your time has concluded. Again, please make sure upstairs baseboards are turned off.
Note: Use of the pathways, creek, hiking, etc is at your own risk. Lots of fun, but be careful of the slippery rocks.
