It is advisable that your vehicle is driven in 4 wheel drive going done and up the driveway.  4 wheel drive should be used even in non-winter months.  Driveway is steep, but manageable in 4 wheel drive.

Water  - When you arrive you must turn on the water system. 
 
Step 1 - In the living room next to the TV you will find a door that leads to an electrical  panel.  Turn on the switch that reads cold water.  See notes on panel.
Step 2 - close all open faucets. (bathroom and kitchen)
Step 3 - In the bathroom behind the shower curtain you will find the water heater and bleed back system tank.  On the top right side  next to the small tank, you will see a small grey box with a lever you must slowly lift the lever up
Very important
(Wait until you see the water pressure go up to mid - point  you will hear the water tank filling up.)    Don't do anything else until its at least half full.
Step 4 - Go back to the electrical  panel and turn on the hot water switch.
Step 5 -  No you can open and run the kitchen and bathroom faucets as needed.  You should let them run to allow for the sediment to pass through.
 
Our water heater will support two reasonable showers at a time.  If you run out of hot water wait about 10-15 minutes for the next hot load.
 
Toilet -  This is a country cabin and our pipes can not handle too much paper so whenever possible try to dispose of dirty toilet paper in the trash receptacle.   THIS IS IMPORTANT.  THERE ARE NO EMERGENCY PLUMBERS IN THE AREA.
 
Heat-  In the winter heat is critical --- not only to keep you warm but to keep our pipes from freezing.  There is one heat control for the cabin and it is located on the right in the living room.   The cabin runs on forced hot air so it will get warm very fast.  Please adjust heat to your comfort level.
We will appreciate if you maintain the heat at 65 degrees on cool spring or fall nights.  This will allow us to conserve energy during your stay.
 
Fireplace - Sitting by the fire with a good book is very relaxing.  But before you use the fireplace please follow these instructions.
 
Step 1 -  remove guard
Step 2 - open flue located inside the opening (stick you hand in and pull lever up and back- the teeth will lock and it will remain open)
Step 3 - prepare wood on fire rack
Step 4 - light fire- (we recommend self starting logs, and sometimes we combine them with real wood for a long lasting fire).  PLEASE NEVER LEAVE THE CABIN WHILE YOU HAVE A FIREPLACE BURNING.
Step 5 - place guard in front of opening
You may need to collect or buy your own kindling.

About the Cabin:
 
 
Air-conditioning The cabin is not equipped with air conditioning due to the mountain air the cabin is always cool but if you find yourself at the cabin during a heat wave we do have a portable fan that will cool the cabin as well as ceiling fans that can be turned on.  If you decide to open windows please make sure that the screen is down to avoid insects.  
  
Phone - Because of our location your cell phone will probably not work in Andes.  The Cabin is equipped with a phone for emergencies and local calls.  We do not have long distance service but you can use a calling card to make long distance  phone calls.  The phone has a built in answering machine - to listen to your messages just press play - to erase press erase twice. 
 
Dishes -  There are plenty of pots, dishes, mugs, bowls and plastic outdoor dishes in the cabinets.  Silverware is located in the drawer on the left side of the sink.  Coffee maker, smoothie machine, juicer and toaster oven are all located on the counters please we do ask that if you use theses appliances that you thoroughly clean them after each use as this will prevent  un-welcomed visitors. 
 
Cooking-  Our stove is electric  please double check that the range is off.  It is very easy to forget to shut off due to the fact that you do not see flames.      We do have a charcoal grill on the deck  if you plan to grill please make sure that you dispose of the charcoal once you are done ( FYI - make sure the coals are well away and off the cabin wood.  It is a very wooded setting and we donít want any forest fires).    We will provide you with a grill wire brush for cleaning after you cook.  Also do not leave food outdoors that will attract wild animals. (bear, coyotes, bobcats, etc.)   We have seen them before, and although we love animals, its best for them and us if we do not create bad habits for the animals.
 
Food -  please try not to leave exposed food on the counters this will welcome un-invited guest.  Please do not forget to take all your food from the fridge and cabinets when you leave.   
 
Garbage - because of the wildlife please Do Not leave garbage outside.
If you are staying for a week you can dispose of the garbage at the Andes Transfer Station located on Tremperskill Road.  ( open on Weds. and Sat. 8am- 2pm)
