Outpost Cottage Check-in Guide

Arrival and departure:

Check in is 4:00pm and check out is 10:00am, please respect these times as we need to be able to ensure all cleaning and sanitation is done prior to the next guests arrival. To limit face-to-face contact we ask you to fill out an electronic safety waiver before arrival, linked here!
