Interaction with guests

In the Spring there may be some bugs you will see since the warmer temps will bring them out. We try to clean but they come back quickly. Just sweep them up with the broom provided. Again, the unit is left only as clean as the guests prior to your stay leave it. It is a self-cleaning unit---Thanks

Other things to note

Cancellations: Vacation properties are often booked many months in advance and the property will be held for your use. While the property is being held for you, it obviously cannot be rented to someone else. Therefore, like cruise, tour packages and airline tickets, when booking/reserving a vacation rental home, you will need to make a full or partial payment upfront in order to hold the property.

Normally this is not a problem, BUT if you need to cancel your trip (especially at the last minute), you should know that you may forfeit a portion or all of your rental fees.

If you have to cancel, we will reopen your reserved dates. If we can rebook the dates, a total refund will be issued. If not, your deposit can be applied towards another rental period(within 6 months), or forfeited. Note, all cancellations OR Change in dates will be charged a $60.00 service fee.

Note: the unit still needs to be cleaned up fully after stay...

Unique experience! Our 5 year old was in awe when we arrived! Very secluded, we were able to explore nature! If only we would of stayed a few weeks later, the leaves would of been changing colors! We sat in the hot tub, used the fire pit. No reception on our phones, which was honestly nice to disconnect! Many thanks! The kids also enjoyed the games / trains provided to ply with!

Perfectly remote and wooded little getaway spot! The hot tub is divine and the caboose has a nice layout with a very sizeable bathroom. We enjoyed our stay and travels through the Driftless Area. A must see area for anyone who has visited!

An absolutely beautiful location, secluded, and all the amenities that you would need. The caboose was quite cozy and had everything we needed. The fire pit and hot tub were nice additions to the property as well. The stores in the nearby towns had everything we needed for a weekend food wise and everything else we needed was already there.

Etc. it's a great surprise Thank you so much for allowing us to stay and we will be back for sure

After staying in many other Airbnb places, and having hosts go out of their way to ensure that amenities work and that basic kitchen essentials (oil, spices, coffee) are available, it really seemed like the Caboose fell below the bar. Easy improvements like just checking the mousetraps, vacuuming the hundreds of bugs, and coming over before check-in to be sure the hot tub is heated to a comfortable temperature would really have improved our stay.

Thank you for your thoughtful review. As stated in our listing, we are off site hosts which offers much privacy but also does not allow us to be able to help personally in a pinch. We need to know about issues that arise ASAP so we can help resolve them from afar. We never stated that we provide "essentials" not knowing what each individual guest may like(some are left by past guests possibly). We are not on-site so as to provide these items. As for the hot tub, we do keep the temp at a lower setting when no guests is there so as to conserve energy and ask that each guest turn it up upon arrival to the desired temp which can take many hours to reach that temp. We do clean mouse traps though even in a few hours a new critter can be caught in a trap(just empty trap and toss into the woods). Bugs are cleaned up and in the Spring, they can re-appear in a matter of an hour due to the warming Spring temps.... we clearly state we are unit that you have to clean after your stay for the next guest. We have been so for over 10 years and it has worked quite well. Thanks again
