A BIG CHANGE THIS YEAR:
Our turnover Day with now be FRIDAY’s, (not Sun.), which means that a rental week will start on a

We anticipate this could be hard/disappointing to some of our regulars. We have to make the switch due to changes for our management team. They do such a terrific job taking care of our place while we are away, that we want to, and also think it is your best interest to, accommodate the change they need. Nancy Simmons and her crew are an integral part in making the stay at the cottage a wonderful experience

A NOTE ABOUT LAST YEAR:
2016 was a challenging summer for us. For the first time in over 18 years of sharing the cottage, the place was over-run by mice. Living in the North woods means living with mice, but nothing like this. It was a complete surprise to us. A local Pest Management Company told us that it was the worst outbreak in over 19 years. We hired a specialist to take care of the situation . Thus, some guests were not affected, but some were. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this might have caused.
The cottage is now COMPLETELY FREE of mice and all holes to the inside have been plugged. We’re back to normal. Our relationship with you is based on trust. Our commitment to you is to honesty and transparency, which is why we share this with you. We are “a little cabin in the woods” ; which is what makes it so wonderful, but it also means that unexpected things can happen. We want you to know that we will do everything in our power to make any stay at Ursa Minor wonderful.
If there are ANY problems while visiting, please contact our manager, Nancy Simmons (who is 3 doors away) with any problem. And/or you can call us directly.
