SECURING YOUR RESERVATION
25% is to be paid at the time of booking, and another 25% is due 90 days before check in. If the reservation is made within 90 days 50% is due at the time of booking. The final 50% payment is due 3 days before check-in.
We are doing no-contact check-ins to keep everyone safe, so once your booking is secured please keep an eye out for additional emails with reminders of scheduled payments due - your original card on file will be charged on the scheduled date. Or if you prefer, you will receive an email three days in advance of the due date with a link to pay with a different card. You are always welcome to send in a check before the due date as well - do let us know if you are so that we may keep an eye out for it. Finally, if you add any "add-ons" to your reservation the deposit for those add-on's will be charged at that time with the remainder due upon the payment schedule originally set. If you need to talk through anything prior to booking, please call, text, or email us to touch base.
CANCELLATION POLICY AND REFUNDS
The cancellation policy you booked with can be found with your confirmation email you received when you paid your deposit. We know that plans can go astray. However, we rely primarily on advance reservations and cancellations cannot always be filled. No refunds due to change of plans or early departures. All guests are financially responsible for the entire booking once your reservation has been made. All cancellations must be made within these time frames or you will be charged the additional balance due. The renter agrees that he/she will not claim any charge backs or credits from his/her credit card company for any fees charged to his/her credit card, including but not limited to deposit, rental, or additional damage fees.
So to be fair to all concerned, our current policy is as follows:
- Last Minute Sickness - If you or someone in your party get sick with COVID-19 symptoms close to your stay (up until day of arrival) at POV, we want you and your family to take care of yourselves and quarantine. Family first. For guests that fall ill, you may roll your deposit to a future visit and re-book for a stay(s) to be completed within a year without any penalty. We are entrusting guests that request re-booking under this policy are honest about illness.
- Cabins -
- For High Summer Season cabin reservations, guests who cancel at least 30 days before check-in will get back 100% of the amount they've paid less a $100 cancellation fee per cabin to facilitate re-booking each unit rented. If you cancel within 30 days before check-in, you will be refunded 100% of your deposit (less a $100 cancellation fee per unit) if we manage to re-rent your cabin on the previously reserved dates.
- For the remainder of the year, guests who cancel at least 14 days before check-in will get back 100% of the amount they've paid less a $50 cancellation fee per cabin to facilitate re-booking the unit. If you cancel within 14 days before check-in, you will be refunded 100% of your deposit (less a $50 cancellation fee per unit) if we manage to re-rent your cabin on the previously reserved dates.
- We will make every effort to find new renters for the unit. The prepaid amount will be refunded the week following the rental period. However, if we are unable to re-rent the cabin, we will split the difference and apply half of this prepaid deposit for your next stay at the resort for up to two years from the original reservation dates.
- Campsites - For luxury tent and campsite reservations, 75% of paid prepayments are refundable when cancelled 14 days before arrival or earlier. 0% of deposits are refundable if cancelled within the 14 day window.
We recognize extenuating circumstances occur – if a cancellation occurs within a two week time frame of your stay due to either inclement weather (flood, snowstorm, or bitter cold of ~0 degrees high) or a family emergency you may apply your deposit to a future visit. This will be reviewed on a case by case basis.
In lieu of a security deposit or a hold on your credit card for a damage deposit, the resort now also requires all guests to have a credit card on file for the event damage is incurred during your stay. Your credit card information is kept confidential and secure and stored in the resort’s secure, online card processing company – Stripe. Stripe is PCI compliant, the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry. Only owners have access to this system. The card will only be utilized in the event of damaged or stolen property or for additional contractors to be hired due to guests – no pre-authorization hold will be made prior or during your stay. In the event property is damaged or missing, payments to your card are processed only after post-checkout. For furniture and kitchen items a fee will be assessed based on the extent of the damage. Guests will be notified via email of damage documented.
MINIMUM RENTAL AGE
Minimum age to rent a cabin is 21 years and the person who books the resort must stay for the entire rental period. Sub-letting or parents renting for their children under age is NOT allowed. Minimum Age required to rent a campsite is 18 years and the person who makes the reservation must stay for the entire rental period.

We cater to families and strive to provide an upscale family vacation rental experience. Renters agree to abide by our resort rules that are provided to you upon arrival.
Maximum Occupancy: The number of persons occupying your shall not exceed the number stated on your reservation. If additional persons are added after your reservation is secured you MUST inform us upon arrival and charges will be added as necessary. Guests may be subject to cancellation/penalties if numbers exceed confirmed occupants listed. This is a violation of the rental agreement.
Bunk Bed Room Capacity: Due to current occupancy and airspace state health regulations (WI ATCP 72.14), only three adults are allowed to sleep in the bedrooms with two sets of bunk beds. This applies to every unit with bunk beds within the resort. However, bedrooms with two bunk beds are sized to sleep four children under the age of 12 or have two children and one adult sleep safely.
Winter Advisory: The resort does its best to keep the grounds maintained during winter months. However, it does snow quite a bit and a plow service is not always available at a moment’s notice. We recommend guests recognize weather conditions are outside of our control and to drive vehicles with good tires (not bald) as well as vehicles with all-wheel or 4-wheel drive. If contractors (ie for plowing) need to be hired to help with guest vehicles with inadequate tires, etc., the charges will be incurred by the guest.
Watercraft: All non-motorized watercraft on the lake (canoes, kayaks, paddleboards, paddle boats) are available for guests to use for free at their own risk. Per state regulations guests are to wear life jackets, which are provided also at no-charge in the benches down at the beach. Guests are asked to return all watercraft to the staging area of the rack after use.
Boat Slip: One boat slip is provided per cabin as a part of the rental fee. Additional boat slips are available for a $10 daily fee on a first-come-first-serve reservation basis. Docks are available (installed and removed) as weather and staff time permits between approximately early May to late October.
Visitor Policy: Visitors are welcome between 8am and 6pm. Every guest of POV Resort may have one visitor, but they must register upon arrival at the office. If visitors do not follow the guidelines of the resort they may be asked to leave.
Quiet Hours: Resort quiet hour is from 10:00pm to 8:00am. This means no loud noises after 10pm. All music must be completely turned off.
Alcohol: Alcohol consumption on the property is allowed with moderation only. We are a family oriented, peaceful resort, catering to those that want an enjoyable vacation experience.

Trailers: Trailers are also welcome to the property and may be parked in designated parking areas.
Towels: In an effort to make the resort as easy and as inclusive as possible for guests (so less packing!) resort owners provide kitchen and bath linens and towels for INDOOR use only for cabin guests. They are not to be brought outside or to the beach.
Phones: We are located in the woods and your cell phone may not work at our resort (although we do get good ATT and Verizon service here).

Campfires and Firewood: All firewood must be purchased on-site to ensure firewood is not contaminated with pests or diseases. We enforce all local burn bans.

Each week-long cabin rental receives a complimentary bundle of firewood upon check-in.
