Thank you in advance for your comments and feedback. We at Four Seasons Resort do our very best to offer great value in our accommodations and watercraft rentals. We are sensitive to having to raise our prices and do our best to avoid doing so. However, our costs go up every day just as yours at home do – heat, electric power, insurance, real estate taxes, laundry services, licenses for each accommodation just to name a few. You can help us limit the need to raise our prices by helping us keep costs down by doing the following when you stay with us:
- Be considerate with your energy usage while you are away from your cottage. Please turn off lights when you leave the cottage and consider energy consumption of heat and air-conditioning.
- Keep your doors and windows closed while the cottage is being heated.
- Place your garbage in our dumpster and remember to take all of your personal items with you upon your departure.
Thank you for considering Four Seasons Resort for your stay! We trust you’ll find one of our lakeside vacation rentals to be perfect for your next vacation.
