PETS only permitted in indicated cottages: We only allow pets in some of our cottages and it will be noted on the cottage information if it is pet friendly. A $45 “per stay” fee is applied for Cottages #1 thru #9 and $60 "per stay" for #10, with a maximum of (2) pets. The maximum allowable pet weight is 70 pounds each. Guests are required to clean up after their pet(s). That includes properly disposing of all waste material. Guests are also required to maintain control of your pet at all times (leash law in effect), and pets must never be left unattended. Any complaints from other guest or management, regarding excessive noise or other nuisances may be cause for immediate termination of the use agreement and forfeiture of the guest’s remaining nights. The pet fee does not cover any damage by the pet(s). If soiling or damage to the cottage occurs, fees will be charged accordingly. Undeclared pets are subject to a $200 penalty fee.
General bugs at lakefront properties: We do our best to ensure guests staying in our lakefront properties understand they are staying in a wooded area on the lake. Arkansas in general, and lakefront properties in particular, are known for having bugs of all kinds. Each property is treated by a professional exterminator on a routine basis. Any properties maintained with the best care possible will have bugs around, and possibly inside, them. We are not trying to create a concern, however, we want guests to have a 100% understanding when booking our cottages, you are staying in a rural lakefront area and you are a “guest” in their natural habitat. Refunds will not be issued to individuals who rent cottages and have issues with bugs.

With full knowledge of the above facts and warnings, the undersigned accepts and assumes all risks involved in or related to the use of the dock and open water areas on any property.
HOLD HARMLESS: Edgewater Resort does not assume any liability for loss, damage or injury to persons or their personal property. Neither do we accept liability for any inconvenience arising from any temporary defects or stoppage in supply of water, gas, electricity or plumbing.
