For example, if the garbage bins are full the day after pick up, we may ask that you pay for an additional garbage pick up, especially if they weren't emptied during your stay for any reason.

Septic System: Home is on a private septic, guests must not flush anything other than toilet paper or the alarm will be triggered. The alarm is outside of the house and it's loud.
Items such as tampons, flushable wipes, Kleenex etc. will immediately clog the toilets and cause the septic backup.
Kitchen: Please limit the amounts of food scrap you put into the garbage disposal. You risk clogging the drain, damaging the septic system, potential septic back up and the alarm will be triggered which is located outside and it’s loud.
Parties & Entertaining:
Gatherings at the Nod Lodge are expected. It is a great place to entertain!
However, "frat type parties" and loud rude, drunken, destructive parties are not ok. Guests and guests of our guests are expected to treat the house with respect and leave the house, bathrooms, garage, and grounds as they were found. Cleaning up vomit, broken glass, lots of bottle caps, cigarette butts, excessive trash, or other refuse or messes is not included in the cleaning fee.
Extra cleaning charges and damage fees will apply if this rule is not observed.
Should you decide to have your guests/visitors “pitch a tent” and stay overnight, there will be additional charges for this as stated on my listing for additional people.
Events & Large Groups: Please discuss with me in advance if you’re planning a large event or party. There are extra charges associated with this in regards to home/property usage and additional cleanup fees may be associated with this privilege also.
Fireworks: Fireworks are legal here. Pick up your fireworks after used and always have a bucket near the area you’re launching your fireworks at, this allows for easier cleanup. If you need extra buckets please let me know.
Should you leave items behind I have no problem sending them to you COD or other payment arrangements must be made. Thank you for understanding.
Should you leave without returning garage door remote there will be a $35.00 replacement fee charged.
If you have made it this far, that is wonderful !!

Thank you for reviewing my Nod Lodge. Nod Lodge was formed in honor of my folks.
Being born with the last name of Nodland it felt appropriate to name it
"The Nod Lodge at the Land of Nod".
I believe life is to be an adventure and I'll encourage you to do the same. I have a great sense of humor and I love a good joke.
If you really want to be an effective host one must break the rules. I've done just that with this nightly rental home and you'll find it a rewarding place to stay.
