The dog days of summer are behind us, and right now the weather couldn’t be any nice up in Cabin Country: warm, sunny days that showcase the changing colors, tempered by cool nights that are great for sleeping. And while we cherish these last warm breezes of the season, we know that winter lurks just around the corner. What should you do to get your cabin ready for winter?


Clean


You’ll want to leave your cabin nice and clean when you leave for the season. That way, spring cleaning won’t such a chore. But don’t focus exclusively on the inside. You’ll want to take care of the yard, any toys such as boats, canoes, or kayaks, and make sure there aren’t too many leaves building up. You’ll also want to check the roof to make sure it’s free of debris and in good condition: a season of snow can wreak havoc on a compromised roof.


Winterize


If you don’t winterize your cabin, you run the risk of having your water lines burst when you’re not there. The damage that a burst pipe can cause is amazing - and amazingly expensive. If you need help with your winterizations, give us a call. We always have licensed plumbers on staff who can help make sure your cabin’s pipes, traps, fixtures, and water heater are all water-free and ready for the cold.


Monitor


Even though you might not be at the cabin much in the upcoming months, you still want to keep an eye on it. With our monitoring service, you won’t have to worry about what’s going on at your lake property: we’ll send you regular reports.


With our new menu of Cabin Services, we are ready to serve you at your lakefront or northwoods home. Check out our standard packages, or give us a call and we’ll put together a custom package just for you. We look forward to serving you.
