These vehicles damage the road and create unwanted dust and noise. If Tenants vehicle is street legal and have the proper licenses and insurance to drive them, please only drive them to go to and from a place. Under no circumstances will we allow anyone to drive up and down the road with no specific destination. Failure to comply or complaints from neighbors will terminate this agreement. Tenants will be asked to vacate cabin immediately and no refunds will be made as it is considered a breach of this contract.

There is no extra charge for the use of the hot tub and is one of the amenities. The hot tub is provided as a convenience only and is not integral part to the agreement.

You are in a very remote area and the one and only repair shop is in Show Low 50 miles from Greer.
NO refund of rents shall be given for mechanical problems beyond our control.
The chlorine level will be higher since we don’t really know how many people are going to be using tub at the same time and to keep the tub sanitized for your use.

20) DAILY HOUSEKEEPING IS NOT PROVIDED:  If you would like daily housekeeping it is available for an extra charge, minimum of $25/day – please contact the managers for exact cost.  We will change out sheets and towels for free after the 4th night if requested for any one renting longer than 4 nights.  

21) RODENTS AND OTHER ANIMALS: It is very important not to feed horse without the owner’s specific permission. Some of these animals are on a special diet to retain their health. Never feed the wild life. If you feed the wild life you are inviting the black bears. These are unpredictable animals and can put your life in danger. We try very hard to keep these wild animals away from you for your safety. Please do not leave any food outside of your cabin.

Greer is in the middle of the wilderness. We love to see deer, elk, antelope, and so on, but we are not too impressed with rodents, racoon and other smaller creatures. We strive to make The White Mountain Lodge Cabins as rodent free as possible by preventive measures. We have no control if Tenants leave doors open and these creatures make their way into the cabin. This is especially a problem during the cold winter months as they seek refuge in a warm cabin. Please notify us should Tenants have a problem with rodents.

22) INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS: The Tenants and Tenants’ Guests shall hereby indemnify and hold harmless White Mountain Lodge Cabin Rentals, LLC and owners against any and all claims of personal injury or property damage or loss arising from use of the premises regardless of the nature of the accident, injury or loss. Tenants expressly recognize that any insurance for property damage or loss which the Landlord may maintain on the property does not cover the personal property of Tenants, and that Tenants should purchase their own insurance for Tenants and Guests if such coverage is desired. The terms White Mountain Lodge Cabin Rentals, LLC and Owner as used in this agreement shall include their heirs, successors in interest, assigns, employees, agents, and representatives where the context requires or permits. The term tenants, clients, You, and Your as used in this agreement shall include Guests’ heirs, successors, assigns, guests’ invitees, representatives and other persons on the rental property during tenants occupancy without regard to whether such persons have authority under this agreement to be upon the rental property where the context requires or permits.
