  • If it is a powder day the walks may be cleaned prior to 8AM. Sorry for the noise but if it’s a powder day, you should be up too.


  • The cabin is very well insulated. We have found that setting the thermostat at 65 assures that the upstairs is comfortable and that the downstairs doesn’t get too warm.
  • If it is cold outside, you can close the shades to insulate the cabin even more. If you close the upstairs blinds before bed this will also help the cabin heat more evenly.
  • Of course, you can set the thermostat at any temperature you like and you do not have to close the blinds.


  • Turn the faucet up and out for hot and down and out for cold.   
  • It is a very good idea to use the range hood if you are cooking anything on the gas range. The lowest fan setting is usually adequate.
