The Guests shall take ALL garbage to public dumpsters found in multiple Red River locations throughout their stay, including making sure there is no garbage remaining on the property at check-out.

Smoking of any type (cigarettes, cigars, pipes, other) is not allowed inside or near the house's entrances. If there is evidence of smoking found inside or outside (cigarette butts, etc.) the home, the Guest may be assessed a $250 fee, which can be taken from the security deposit.


The Guest or people shall not use any illegal or illicit drugs or substances while on the property. Any Guest who is found using drugs or allows others to use drugs on the premises will be immediately denied continued occupancy at these premises.


The property is professionally cleaned and inspected before and after each rental to ensure that all guests have a clean, comfortable stay. Any cleanliness issues noticed upon arrival should be reported to the owner within 3 hours of check-in. Accordingly, the cleaning service will be notified to address issues at no additional expense to the guest. We reserve the right to dispatch cleaning crews if we deem it necessary to bring the property to standard. Guests leaving the premises without having allowed us to address deficiencies within 24 hours of check-in will forfeit all deposits made. If cleanliness issues are not reported within the 3 hour time period, it is our assumption the home is prepared to your satisfaction.
