Property Damage Policy

We ask that guests be mindful with our property to ensure its enjoyment for all guests. All of our cabins are privately owned. The registered guest agrees to indemnify the owner and Keweenaw Waters Resort of any damages to the cabin which result from the renter's occupancy including furnishings, household items, and/or damages found upon arrival. The registered guest assumes full responsibility and is the one who will be charged for any damages their group causes to the property.

Upon leaving the cabin for any time, we ask all guests to ensure the cabin is not left unsecured in order to prevent any items or property from being stolen or damaged. Stolen or damaged property will be the responsibility of the registered guest.

Check Out:  What you haul in, you haul out. Guests are to bring all garbage to the resort dumpster. Kitchens are to be emptied of all food, and dishes cleaned. Never dump food waste or grease down any drains. Use the trash cans for trash and not the toilet. The cabin is to be left in good condition. Excessive cleaning fees will apply $50/hr. Please help us keep our unit litter free by remembering to pick up any personal trash, equipment, personal belongings, etc. This will help us keep our property in good shape for the enjoyment of all our guests!

While we aim to keep our equipment in every cabin in good working condition, there are chances of appliances or amenities not working or breaking down completely even after pre-arrival inspections have taken place. Due to these unpredictable circumstances, we ask that you please notify our office of any issues so we can help get them resolved! 

Personal Belongings
Our property insurance does not cover your belongings from damage or loss. Your items are your responsibility and should be insured by you.

Lost and Found
Belongings left behind will be held for two weeks.  After this time, unclaimed items will be donated. We will ship your items to you for $15 + the cost of shipping. 

Pet-Friendly Cabins

Cabins 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, and 24:  READ VERY CAREFULLY BEFORE CONSIDERING BRINGING YOUR PET.  We welcome well-behaved, house-trained dogs with a fee of $25 per night with a limit of 2! This fee does not cover any damages to the cabin or excessive clean-up. We strongly suggest you bring your own pet blankets/linens for use. Please keep in mind that our own extra bedding provided for humans is NOT to be used by pets.  If our bedding is used for a pet, a $35 fee per item damage fee will be assessed.  To maintain the condition of our furniture and ensure its enjoyment for all guests, please keep your four-legged friend(s) on the floor.   If this is impossible, use your or provided pet blanket to cover the furniture.   Absolutely no pets on beds.

We ask that your pets be kept on a leash or under voice command at all times out of consideration for other guests. Please do not leave your pets unattended.

The pet owner is responsible for noise and pet waste cleanup.  Only allow the pet to use natural areas to relieve itself, never the patio or deck.  Please ensure waste is picked up and removed. Damages and additional cleaning caused by pets will incur an additional bill to be determined.  Finally, if your pet is a barker, it should be left at home.
