Grand Pines Resort Lodging Policies | Check-in and Check-out Times | Reservation & Cancellation Policies
All of our cabins are individually owned, and are operated by independent Management Company. Because of this, all guests are required to sign a rental agreement stating some of the policies listed below. In addition, guests are not permitted to remove any items from the cabins or porches. Contents of the cabin are photographed and inventoried, and missing items will result in a loss of the security deposit outlined below.
Notice (Updated 6/5/2014)
I understand and agree to the following Notice:
All of the Cabins for rent at Grand Pines Resort are owned by individual owners. Grand Pines Resort Management has contracts with all of the current cabin owners and they are under contract to honor all reservations on the books for one year to protect our guests in the event that they decide to sell their cabin or pull out of the rental pool. In the event that an owner decides not to honor the rental contract or in the event that a cabin is fore closed on or faces short sale there is a chance that the cabin you have put a deposit down on may not be available. In the event that this happens Grand Pines Resort Management will try to move you to a comparable cabin. If there is not a comparable cabin available you will be refunded your deposit.
By providing Grand Pines Resort Management with the deposit requested, you have agreed that you are aware of the notice above and you agree that you cannot hold Grand Pines Resort or any cabin owner liable for damages in the event that your cabin is pulled out of the rental pool.
