        Internet: Excellent. We have the strong internet feeds through Spectrum- 500 mbps. If you need to use our guest Netflix account, please ask. We also have cable TV as well, so you do not need to rely on streaming if you would prefer local channels.

        Pets:  Freshwater Vacation Rentals currently charges $75/per pet for your entire stay. Yes, we do accept dogs, yet we do ask that you please clean up after them both inside and outside the cabin. Plus, if you allow them on the furniture, we do ask that you please bring your own linens/blankets for them to sleep on.  Just let us know which bed you will be using with them, and we’ll make sure it is ready for your sheets when you arrive. Plus, if the pet hair starts to build, we do ask that you please run the vacuum. Generally, dogs love the water and places to explore. Pet food does tend to attract mice, so vigilance is needed.
