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.
USE OF HOT TUB IS AT YOUR OWN RISK!!
(20) 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. If your garbage is full, please give us a call and we will happy to pick up the refuge.
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, raccoon and other smaller creatures like spiders. We strive to make The Lazy Trout Cabins as rodent and spider 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.
21) DUST: Greer has only one paved road (Main Street) and the rest are all dirt roads and it is impossible to keep dust out of cabins because none have air conditioning thus windows will need to remain open during visit especially during the summer months. Winter months are not nearly as much problem because windows will remain closed during that time.
(22) INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS: The Tenants and Tenants' Guests shall hereby indemnify and hold harmless Lazy Trout 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 Lazy Trout 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.
