At Whiskey Cove, we ask guests to leave our family lake home in good order by following these check out steps.

CHECK OUT: 10 a.m. CT

If you need flexibility with your check out time, please let us know in advance so we can do our best to accommodate.

Trash: Please collect trash from all rooms (kitchens/baths/beds/laundry) in bags and place in trash shed outside the upper level. Unfortunately, we do not have recycling service at the lake, so all trash can be consolidated, unless you'd like to take recyclable items home with you.

Linens: Please strip the beds that have been slept in and leave the dirty sheets in a pile on each bed they were removed from. Leave dirty towels in the laundry room.

Dishes: Please ensure all dishes are washed or in the dishwasher being washed before leaving. Be sure that you are taking leftovers home in your personal containers, not Whiskey Cove containers.

Thermostat: In the warmer months, please set the temperature to 75 degrees (F) before leaving. In the cooler months, please set the temperature to 64 degrees before leaving.

Grill: If you used the grill or smoker, clean it off/out and put the cover back on.

Fireplace: If you turned the lower-level fireplace on, it must be turned back to Pilot upon check out. Directions are on the fireplace remote downstairs.

TVs: Log out of any streaming services you logged into to protect your account, but please leave all TVs logged into the Owner’s YouTube TV account as you found it.

Kayaks, Lily Pad & Water toys: All Whiskey Cove-provided water toys must be returned to their original location on the dock and secured as found upon check-in. Kayaks should be bungeed to the jet ski lift with the green bungees with paddles stored in the seat compartment of the kayaks. Roll up the Lily Pad, secure the black straps around it, then bungee it back around the post. The patriotic floats should be hung on the back of the Adirondack chairs.

Doors, Windows: Please ensure all doors and windows are locked upon check out.

Notify Your Hosts: Once you've left the property and locked the door behind you, please text us to let us know you've checked out. If you noticed anything not working or needing attention in any way during your stay, we would greatly appreciate it if you'd let us know upon check out. 

Thank you for loving our lake home like the treasure it is!
