What we do ask is that you commit to replacing, repairing or making right any and all damages caused by you, or your guests during your stay. By confirming and completing your reservation with the Acoustic Cellars Lodge you agree to all charges for damages be billed to the payment method used when making your reservation. This security deposit commitment and your credit card will be used at the sole discretion of Acoustic Cellars Lodge to pay for the restoration of the property to its original move-in conditions (outside of other normal wear and tear). Additional costs include but are not limited to: cleaning beyond normal wear and tear, bedding stains or damage, furniture damage, removing excessive garbage, and repairing or replacing any part of the premises, its contents, common areas, and recreational facilities, for damage caused after your move-in and stay.

WHILE Acoustic Cellars Lodge WILL MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO REPAIR ANY MAINTENANCE ISSUE IN A TIMELY MANNER, IT CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT THE ISSUE WILL BE FIXED DURING A GUEST STAY, AS THE COMPANY MAY HAVE TO GO THROUGH HOME WARRANTIES.
