Thank you for renting this property. We are delighted to have you visit and enjoy the greater Boothbay peninsula in mid-coast Maine!! We hope that your stay is comfortable and memorable and that you return
to stay with us again and again. Please let us know how we can help to make your stay a pleasant one.
The owner/manager lives on site and is available much of the time to ensure that. Please fill out
the period of time for which you are renting the Farmhouse here: ____________________________.

Below are the ‘agreements’ under which we rent this property to you.

2. This is a NON SMOKING house. The other house rental on the property is also NON SMOKING.
3. Pets are not permitted in this house under any conditions. So many people are allergic that it makes it unpleasant for others to rent it after pets have visited.
4. DAMAGE/RESERVATION DEPOSIT- A damage/reservation deposit of $500 is required. This must be received with this signed contract and the 50% rental deposit, in the next seven (7) days, to ensure that your reservation is confirmed.  The deposit automatically converts to a security/damage deposit upon arrival.

thirty (30) days before your arrival date.
