Welcome to The Canada House. First things first, please be mindful of the community and neighbours. During the COVID pandemic a lot of visitors to Prince Edward County were disrespectful. Be kind, wave to neighbours and treat the area and house with the respect that you would give your own home. Instead of referring to yourself as renters, refer to yourself as guests of Julie and Jeremy :). Also please familiarize yourself with the local Noise By-Law (View By-Law No. 143)
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email us, we check the email frequently: firstname.lastname@example.org

Don't leave BBQ unattended. Please leave BBQ temperature to medium to low to avoid grease flames. As a reminder there is a fire extinguisher below the kitchen sink. To turn on the BBQ, turn on gas tank below, and turn on the ignitor burner (it’s labeled). Turn off tank when finished using. If you run out of propane there’s an extra tank in the small garage attached to the house (enter through the sliding door at back). If you empty a propane tank during your stay please let us know. BBQ utensils can be found in the kitchen.

Please be safe around the Pool and Hot Tub area and don’t leave children unattended. Pool inflatables and toys can be found in the small garage attached to the house, there is also a pump for the inflatables. Every week St. Lawrence Pools comes to check on the pool and hot tub. If you notice anything that seems off please let us know and we will have them come. At times it may need more chlorine but we can direct you on adding some if necessary. If you notice any leaves etc. in the pool, feel free to use the pool net to clear the pool.
Please do your best to keep children out of the hot tub as it’s not ideal for children. To use the hot tub, undo the clips at the side of the pool facing the yard, use two people to remove the top of the Hot Tub and lean it up against the deck fence (Put top back on and secure clips again when not in use). You can turn the jets on using the control panel. Ideal temperature is 100 degrees. If you notice the water level has become low in the hot tub (below top jet), you can use the red bucket in the Primary Bedroom closet to add water from the kitchen sink. If you plan to go to the beach, please do your best to rinse off sand at the beach and not in the pool or hot tub.

Please be careful when using the fire pit. If it’s windy please avoid starting a fire. We suggest filling up the metal bucket with water found in the small garage attached to the house and bringing it with you to the fire when using the fire pit. This will be used to put out the fire when you are finished. There is a fire extinguisher under the kitchen sink. There may be some firewood at the back of the house but you will most likely need to buy a bundle in town. There also may be some paper in the small garage attached to the house along with marshmallow rostering sticks. In the drawers underneath the microwave there are flame starters.
