Terms and Policies

The following are the Terms and Policies in effect during your stay with us at the Verona Lakehouse to ensure your safety and enjoyment as well as that of our neighbours. Please read the Terms and Policies carefully and contact the Property Manager if you have any questions or need clarification. The Property Manager’s contact information can be found at the end of this document.

Reservation Terms and Policy

Rates quoted are subject to change without notice and do not include HST (13%). All rates require a minimum three (3) day stay. Special packages and promotional rates are mutually exclusive.

All facilities are subject to availability and conditions. Verona Lakehouse is not responsible for any package components or recreational opportunities made unavailable due to weather or any circumstances beyond our control. Some limitations on usage may apply.

Check-in time is anytime after 4:00 p.m. (1600 hours). Should you arrive earlier than 4:00 p.m. we kindly request that you park your vehicle at street level, take a walk in the neighbourhood or visit the town which is a short drive away, while we ensure the house is perfect for your arrival.

Check-out time is no later than 11:00 a.m. (1100 hours). We request timely check-out as the cleaning staff and management arrives promptly at 11:00 a.m. Additional charges will be applied if Guest and Guest party do not check out by 11:00 a.m. A late checkout may be requested at time of booking and Host will notify Guest if available.

Payments and Deposits

Payment must be made in full at time of booking. A security deposit of five hundred dollars ($500.00) is required. The security deposit is fully refundable within 48 hours after check-out once it is confirmed the property is in the same state as it was rendered at check-in, meaning there are no damages to the property caused by the Guest, Guest party or their pets.


In the event of cancellation, the payment and security deposit will be refunded in full if cancellation is made 48 hours after initial booking when Verona Lakehouse receives a minimum 14 days notice; there is a 50% refund when Verona Lakehouse receives notice a minimum of 7 days prior to check-in; thereafter any prepayment will be non-refundable and only the security deposit and cleaning fee will be refunded. Should the Guest and Guest Party vacate the Property at any time before the Check-out Date, the Guest is still required to pay the full amount of Base Rent and Additional Rent owing, and the Host is not be required to refund any Base Rent, Additional Rent, or cleaning fee already paid. Security Deposit terms will apply.


The Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) is 13% in Ontario. The tax applies to accommodation only and will not be applicable to food, beverages, activities, or other Host amenities that you may enjoy during your stay. The HST is a government mandated tax that is not directed by Verona Lakehouse, nor is it optional.

Smoking & Cannabis Use Policy

With respect for all guests, especially families with children, Verona Lakehouse is fully compliant with Smoke-Free Ontario Legislation therefore the smoking of any substance (including but not limited to tobacco, vaping, recreational and medical cannabis) is NOT permitted in any enclosed space on the property. This includes the garage, any room or hallway inside the Lakehouse, balconies and decks. Smoking is only permitted on our waterfront area. Disposal of cigarette butts or any debris into the lake is prohibited. Verona Lakehouse reserves the right to designate any area as non-smoking.

Bedrooms, Indoor Common Areas & Deck

Should smoking occur in any part of the Verona Lakehouse designated as non-smoking during occupancy, an additional charge of $500.00 will be added to the rental fee to cover the cost of cleaning.

Additional charges for cleaning of the Verona Lakehouse are as follows:

Additional charges will apply if further cleaning or replacement of materials is required in which case, the main registered guest would be liable for loss of business during such time as the Lakehouse is not available for guest use, or if compensation is required to be given to future guests who are negatively affected by the residual effects of smoking including adverse odours.

External Smoking Restrictions

Smoking of any substance is prohibited within 9 metres (30 feet) from any doorways of the Lakehouse to prevent inadvertent penetration of smoke into the Lakehouse.

Designated Smoking Areas

  •  A Smoking Area is located at the waterfront by the firepit
  •  Butts must be properly disposed of and not left on the grass or thrown into the lake or any neighbouring property

All other restrictions included in the Smoke-Free Ontario legislation and the federal Cannabis Control Act (Bill 36) are in effect.

The following is a summary interpretation; it does not supersede any aspect of the Cannabis Control Act as outlined here:

  • Edible consumption of cannabis products is allowed in the Lakehouse.
