Terms and Conditions


As the guest in the cabin you are financially responsible for any damage done to the home during your stay. If you notice any damage or anything out of the ordinary, please contact us within 1 hour of your arrival at 909-866-8583  Please make sure to check & see if you have heat, electricity, hot water and the hot tub (if your cabin has a hot tub) is working upon check in.  Even though your cabin has been professionally inspected, working services upon arrival due to changes from mountain climate and conditions cannot be guaranteed.
All reservations made in advance either on our website as an online booking or made with our reservationist require a credit card to reserve the property.  If it is 30 days or more prior to your reservation you may send a check for your stay.  However, when the booking is made, a credit must be presented to hold that property.  No checks will be accepted 30 days or less prior to stay.  If you are 30 days or less prior to your stay or for a holiday booking, your credit card will be charged for the total amount including all taxes and fees at the time the reservation is made. If you make special arrangements (Non Holiday) to only pay 1/2 the amount when you make the reservation, the 2nd half is due 15 days prior unless the reservation is coming up soon or in the case of a Holiday full payment is required at booking.  Holiday reservations must be paid in full 30 days prior to arrival. Lessee/guest understands that once a credit card number has been given, Village Reservation Service has the right to charge said card for monies due on reservation. Reservation is confirmed at time of booking either online or on the phone. Village Reservation Service must receive all signed documents directly upon completion of reservation.  If that cannot be done immediately please contact the office at 909-866-8583 right away to discuss options. Village Reservation Service reserves the right to refuse service to anyone.

Security Deposit

The CSA Damage Protection Plan plan will be offered at booking.  It covers unintentional damages to the rental unit that may occur during your stay. The policy will pay a maximum benefit of [$1500.00]. Any damages that exceed [$1500.00] will be charged to the credit card on file. If, during your stay at one of our Rental Properties, an Insured Person causes any damage to real or personal property of the unit as a result of inadvertent acts or omissions, the Insurer will reimburse the Insured for the cost of repair or replacement of such property up to a maximum benefit of $1500.00. Certain terms and conditions apply. Full details of the Security Deposit Protection coverage are contained in the Certificate of Insurance or Insurance Policy. The Security Deposit Protection can be purchased up to, and including at, check-in. By submitting payment for this plan, you authorize and request CSA Travel Protection and Insurance Services to pay directly to Village Reservations any amount payable under the terms and conditions of the Security Deposit Protection. Please contact Village Reservations directly if you do not wish to participate in this plan or assignment.  The plan is an option.  If you elect to not purchase the protection plan a security deposit will be collected and will be a minimum equivalent of 1 nights stay, minimum of $300.00.  This must be in cash or check 30 days prior to your stay.  The security deposit is refundable within 21 days pending property inspection and will be charged if any excessive cleaning or trash removal is needed.  The security will also be charged for any damages or missing items that may include pay per view charges etc. incurred during your stay.
