CABIN LIVING

KITCHEN

Because of our septic system, there is no garbage disposal. Our water is from our well and is perfectly safe to drink, but does have a high mineral content.. The water in the refrigerator door is additionally filtered and is recommended for drinking. If you find the ice maker cannot keep up with demand, please find additional bags of ice in the freezer.

HEAT/AC

Summer

The thermostat for the air conditioning is located at the top of the stairs on the 2nd floor. To adjust the temperature, simply rotate the entire thermostat to the desired temperature. ALL OTHER thermostats only control heat, so they should not be used in the summer.

Winter

Winter quick start when entering the cabin for the 1st time

  • In the Master bedroom, locate the thermostat, immediately inside the door to the left, and rotate it to the desired temperature.
  • At the top of the stars (2nd floor) locate the thermostat in the hallway and rotate it to the desired temperature.
  • In the basement, light the Gas Fireplace (directions below), keep the door
  • leading to the basement closed, it will trap the heat in the core of the house and speed up warmth.

  • In the Great Room, light a fire (see directions below).
  • Heating explained in detail:

    Mountainaire is equipped with 4 heat sources. On particularly cold winter days, we always use a combination of all 4 heat sources.

    1.Main Forced Air Heat Pump

    2.Radiant Heat Floors

    3.Gas Fireplace in the basement

    4.Wood Burning Fireplace in the Great Room

    Main Forced Air Heat Pump

    The thermostat located on the 2nd floor, directly at the top of the stairs controls the Heat Pump. To adjust the temperature, simply rotate the entire thermostat to the desired temperature.

    Radiant Heat Floors

    This is the primary heat source for the entire 1st floor

    This is the primary zone is the entire 1st floor. The thermostat to control the 1st floor is located in the Master Bedroom. To adjust the temperature, simply rotate the entire thermostat to the desired temperature. 

    Gas Fireplace in the basement

    This fireplace is the best way to keep the basement warm.

  • On the right side of the fireplace, there is a small metal door.
  • Open the door.
  • Inside, you will see a knob and a rubber button.
  • Turn the knob 1 click counterclockwise to the pilot position.
  • Press the entire knob in for about 30 seconds.
  • Now, continuing to depress the knob, simultaneously depress the rubber button.
  • You should hear a clicking sound.
  • After a short while, the pilot flame will light, and when it does, continue to depress the knob, but release the rubber button.
  • After about 10 seconds of the flame being lit, release the knob.
  • The flame should remain lit.
  • If not, repeat the steps above.
  • When the pilot light remains lit, rotate the knob counterclockwise until you feel a click, then rotate it only slightly more.
  • The heating flame should light.
  • Control the heat by rotating the knob. Counter clockwise for more heat, and clockwise for less.
  • Keeping the door at the top of the stairs closed will keep the heat trapped in the basement, and will result in more even heating.
  • Rotate the knob completely clockwise before leaving the cabin or when heat is no longer needed.

  • 3 SAESON PLUNGE SPA

    Use of the Hot Tub is at your own risk. The full list of Hot Tub Risks and Disclosures that were agreed upon at time of rental are included in the addendum (Exhibit C) for your convenience. Hot Tub use is in affect from April 15 - October 15.

    FOR SAFETY, COVER MUST BE ON SPA WHEN NOT IN USE.

    OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

    1. To turn on the SPA and heater immediately, there are 2 switches located on a post near to the ground where the pool pumps and heater are located (on the side of the deck next to the SPA).

    2. The PUMP will be in the “TIMER” position, and the HEATER will be in the “ON” position. This is the default position and will ensure a warm hot tub upon your arrival.

    3To increase the temperature, switch the PUMP to the “PUMP ON” position, the pump will immediately turn on and run continuously.

    4Please switch the PUMP to “PUMP TIMER” when not in use. Running the pump continuously is not good for the pump.

    FOR SAFETY, COVER MUST BE ON HOT TUB WHEN NOT IN USE.

    Jets and light:

    On the side of the SPA are 2 silver push buttons. One controls the jets and the other controls the light. Next to these push buttons is the air valve. Twist the valve to open it. This will add air to the jets causing bubbles.

    TROUBLE SHOOTING:

    If the heater stops heating:

    1. When the hot tub reaches the set temp, the heater will stop heating. It will turn back on if the pump is running and the temp drops below the set temp.

  • increase the temperature setting on the heater to your desired temperature
  • 2. If the heater display shows “low flo” the hot tub will need to be backwashed

  • Turn the pump OFF (use the switches on the box shown above)
  • Rotate the handle on the top of the filter to “backwash”
  • Turn the pump ON for about 3 minutes.
  • Turn the pump OFF
  • Rotate the handle on the filter back to “filter”
  • Turn the pump ON
  • Check the water level in the “catch tank” (see below)
  • Check the water level in the hidden catch tank

    There is a hidden catch tank located on the river side of the hot tub. It’s a catch tank under the deck where the water flows over the edge. If you look down the overflow edge, you can see if there is water in the hidden tank. You can also lift the trap door for a better look.

    If the tank is very low, especially when the water is flowing over the edge, you will need to add water.



    HOT TUB

    The Hot Tub is located just off the deck and is open year round.  Please keep the cover on and locked whenever the Hot Tub is not in use.  Please add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of chlorine to the Hot Tub each day depending on how much it is used.  This will help keep the water clean and enjoyable.
