rental agreement

We are dedicated to matching each guest with the perfect home. We respect and work to enrich the community in which we live. We succeed only when we meet and exceed the expectations of our guests. We have a passion for excellence and will endeavor to deliver the highest standards of service, value, integrity and fairness.

Dear Guest
Here is the rental agreement for your stay in the property name  from arrival date to departure date. Please take the time to
read over the agreement and sign and return the last page to us before your arrival date.

We remind our guests that all of our vacation rental homes are privately owned homes and ask that you treat your rental home with respect.
This rental agreement is a binding legal contract and should be carefully reviewed. By entering into this contract, the guest is agreeing to all of the obligations and responsibilities outlined in this document.

This agreement is entered into, by and between Morton & Furbish Vacation Rentals (Agent) on behalf of the Owner of this property (Owner) and (Guest) who is responsible for the actions of their family and guests.  The Guest hires from the Owner for use as a vacation home, those premises described in “Rental Property” for a term commencing on “Arrival Date” at 4:00 PM or later and terminating on “Departure
Date” before 10:00 AM as specified in this agreement. Please contact our office if you are going to arrive late on your check-in day or if you will be checking out early.

Because our properties are privately owned, the owner of the property has 60 days prior to your arrival date to cancel your reservation. This does not happen often, but if this should occur, Morton & Furbish Vacation Rentals will work to find you a comparable vacation property from within our inventory. If there is not another property that will work for your stay we will offer a full refund of any monies you have put down for your stay.

Payment schedule: We require a 50% deposit to secure your reservation. We must have a credit card number on file. The balance of your account is due 30 days prior to
your arrival.

All reservations are final. If you should have to cancel for ANY reason, we cannot refund money unless we are able to rebook the property for the same dates. If the property is rebooked your funds will be returned minus a $50.00 processing fee. We do not refund for weather events. We do offer trip cancelation insurance that would protect your funds in case of emergency. TRIP CANCELATION INSURANCE IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. This insurance covers everyone in your party. If
interested in purchasing the insurance, please contact Morton & Furbish. If you would like more information about the travel insurance please call 1-888-885-5550. To see a sample copy of coverage please click this

Check-in time is 4:00 PM or later at the Morton & Furbish Vacation Rental office located at 2478 Main Street. If you will be arriving after 4:00 PM we will leave all check-in materials in the drop box next to the front door of the agency. You will find an envelope with your name on it containing a map to your rental, keys and emergency contact information.
Check-out time is 10:00 AM. Please leave your keys and the comment card in the drop box next to the front door of our agency.

The account summary will list the basic rental fee for the property, Maine sales tax (8% of the basic rental fee), and the cleaning/linen fee (linen rental, garbage pick-up and cleaning on departure). A non-refundable damage waiver is charged on each reservation. The damage waiver covers up to $1500 worth of accidental damage that may occur during your stay and takes the place of a security deposit.

Morton & Furbish Vacation Rentals will supply linens for each bed and set of bath towels for each guest (as indicated by the property capacity). We do not supply beach towels. We supply two rolls of toilet paper per bathroom, paper towels, trash bags, dishwasher/dish soap, and small bath soaps. The Guest is responsible for any extra items they require.

Each property is equipped differently as described in the property listing. If the property lists a CHARCOAL GRILL the Guest is responsible for supplying the charcoal. If the property lists a GAS GRILL a gas tank is provided. Most properties also keep a spare tank for the use of the Guest. If you have any problems with the gas tanks, please contact our office immediately.

Trash will be removed on check-out day. If you need to remove trash before your departure, you may use the dumpster located behind the Morton & Furbish office. If you are in a cottage community (Saddleback Lake Lodge, Rangeley Manor, Russell Cove, Old Mill Landing or Lodges Condos) you will find a dumpster on site.

PLEASE contact our office immediately (864-9065/888-218-4882) should you discover a problem in your vacation home. Morton & Furbish Vacation Rentals does offer 24 hour maintenance service. The Owner and/or Agency are not responsible for compensation of any part of the Guest fees due to failure of appliances or fixtures resulting in short term inconvenience. We always do our part to remedy problems to
the satisfaction of our guests.

Morton & Furbish Vacation Rentals offers some pet friendly properties. If you choose to bring your pet to a pet friendly property, a $50 Pet Fee will be added to your reservation summary. Please do not bring a pet to a non-pet friendly property. Should we discover evidence that a pet was in a non-pet friendly property a $200 fee will be added to your account summary to cover special cleaning costs and you will be asked to leave the home and forfeit all money paid.

Each property lists the number of people allowed. This is determined by the number of sleeping spaces and the capacity the septic system can sustain. We ask that you not exceed the number listed either by the size of your party or by the number of guests you have visit during your stay. Morton & Furbish Vacation Rentals has the right to ask you to leave if capacity is exceeded and you would forfeit all money paid.

Anyone who fails to adhere to this policy will be asked to leave immediately and forfeit any monies paid. If we discover evidence that smoking occurred during your stay, a $300.00 fee will be added to your account to cover special cleaning costs.

Most of the properties are equipped with a TV. The property listing will detail whether satellite or cable is available. Without satellite or cable, there is no reception so TV would be best used for VCR/DVD viewing. Please do not call the emergency number for television issues.

Most properties are equipped with telephones for local calls only. Long distance calls and directory assistance calls must be collect calls or charged to a calling card. Cell phone reception varies according to location and service carrier.

The property listing will detail if internet service is available at the property. If you should have issues with the internet please call the office for assistance. Please do not call the emergency number for internet issues.

Water quality varies at each property. We advise Guests to use bottled water for consumption.

Campfires are PROHIBITED unless there is a designated area for fires on the property. DO NOT create a fire pit if one is not provided.

Morton & Furbish Vacation Rentals does manage some properties that are on the market. If you are staying in a property that is for sale, a broker may call for a showing during your stay. We try to arrange these showings for change-over days so that your stay will not be interrupted. If the property should sell and the new owner does not wish to honor the rentals that are already booked in that property, we would work with you to find a comparable property rental for your stay or offer a full refund.
