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.  

A completed Vacation Rental Agreement is required to confirm a reservation.

The Rental Deposit for 1/2 of the total amount due should be paid within 48 hours of making your reservation.  Payment in full is due if you are making your reservation within 30 days of your arrival date.


Dear  Guest

Here is the rental agreement for your stay in the property from  ____SAMPLE_________  to  ____SAMPLE_________.  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.

Guest agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Owner and their representatives from and against any liability for personal injury or property damage sustained by any person (including Guest's family and any guests), as a result of any cause unless caused by the gross negligence or the intentional willful act of the Owner.

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.

 

 CAPACITY

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.

The use of recreational motor vehicles, trailers, mobile homes, trucks with camper inserts in the bed, and any other vehicles that provide sleeping accommodations, for purposes other than transportation, are prohibited.  Over occupancy of rental cottages INCLUDES occupying vehicles of this type and subjects tenant(s) to eviction for violation of the occupancy limits.  Some areas do also prohibit even parking RV's in the driveway of a home. 

Total number of Occupants in your party (including infants):  

Adults: __X___ Children ___X_____
 
    Maximum Allowed Occupants at Property:  ______X_______

PAYMENT

Payment schedule: We require a 50% deposit to secure your reservation. We must have a credit card number on file. 
Final payment (rent balance including all applicable taxes and fees) is due 30 days prior to your arrival date.  For your convenience, we will automatically schedule your final payment using the credit card on file.  One reminder will go out to you 7 days before your payment is due, giving you time to update any credit card information that is on file.  If you prefer to make alternate payment arrangements for this payment, please email us and let us know.


You may also send checks to:  Morton & Furbish Rental Agency
                                                    PO Box 1209

CANCELLATION POLICY/GUEST REFUND POLICY

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 cancellation insurance that would protect your funds in case of emergency.  TRIP CANCELLATION 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 link https://docs.rentalguardian.com/samples/pac7/mvtpusa/MVTPUSASampleDOC.pdf

SAFETY

Even the most ordinary-looking things (beaches, boats, floats, canoes and kayaks) can be dangerous for an untrained or inexperienced operator.  PLEASE exercise care at your rental.  Your safety is our biggest concern, so if you have questions about any of these items, ASK FIRST, and do not use them until you are confident that you can do so safely.  If any amenities (including any beach, any type of boat, float, raft, deck, walkway, dock mooring, hot tub or other amenity) are available for your use, you take full responsibility and risk for their use.  Neither the Owners nor their Agent make any representation as to the soundness or safety of any such amenities.  If anyone in your party uses any amenity, with or without Owner's permission, that action shall be construed as a statement of that individual's competence to handle or utilize it safely and the Owners and the Agent shall be in no way legally accountable for any damages or injury to any persons or property resulting from such use.

Renters are responsible for inspecting and assessing the dock on the rental property to ensure that it is adequate for their boat.  Morton & Furbish Vacation Rentals is not responsible for any damage done to a boat while it is on the dock or mooring.  We recommend removing boats from water if high winds and storms are forecasted.  Please bring with you bumpers, ropes and anything else needed to protect your boat and the dock at the property from damage during your stay.

Campfires are PROHIBITED unless there is a designated area for fires on the property.
