• Reservations are confirmed only upon receipt of a non-refundable deposit of $300.00 for the Hilltop and $500.00 for the Lodge and Lake House. If your deposit is not received within 10 days of booking, the space may become available to others.  Payment can be made through cash, personal check or electronic funding through PayPal or email money transfer.  Please see the note below concerning exchange rates.  While we accept payments via PayPal as a courtesy to our customers (we prefer being paid by check, cash or email money transfer) PayPal charges us a fee of 3.5% for the use of their services. Anyone wishing to pay either their deposit or the balance of their account via PayPal must add an additional 3.5% to the amount of the payment. The PayPal web site is www.paypal.com. Our PayPal account number is our email address, info@canontolodge.com. The balance of your rental is due upon arrival, as soon as you have settled in. Please make cheques or money orders payable to CANONTO LODGE.

 

  • Receipt of your deposit confirms your rental reservation and we will send your rental reservation confirmation number to you when your deposit is received. Your reservation is a contractual obligation and if you find it necessary to cancel your booking we will do our best to rent the unit(s) to another customer. We are usually able to do so and the longer lead time we have, the more likely it will be that we will be able to find another renter. If we are able to rent the cottage(s) to another party, your deposit will be applied to any future week and unit you choose, depending on availability.
