Property Inspections: All problems, including inadequate cleaning and damage, must be reported to
Manager within 24 hours of check in for prior guest to be held responsible. Manager reserves the right to
enter premises at any time for the purpose of effecting necessary inspections, repairs or maintenance.

Notification: It is Guest's sole responsibility to inspect the Property upon arrival. In addition to inspecting the
smoke detectors, Guest agrees to inspect the entire Property to ensure that it is free of hazards and properly
equipped. Properties are not equipped for the elderly or handicapped. Guest assumes the entire risk of
injuries arising from use of the Property. Guest will ensure that the Property has a secure shower or bathtub
mat, and that the Guest takes reasonable measures to prevent slips in the bathroom, on staircases, steps, on
balconies and throughout the Property. Guest agrees to take a higher degree of care in the use of the
Property because of the age of the structures on the Property.

Occupancy: The maximum number of occupants allowed in the Property is specified in the reservation.
Children over the age of 3 are counted. Overcrowding or misrepresentation is grounds for immediate
revocation of the license to the Property and removal of Guest without refund. The Guest is the person who
will occupy the Property. Parents may not book Properties for their children. The Guest must be present at
the Property for the time of the reservation and take full responsibility for the Property. Small children are the
responsibility of the Guest. Children should not roam free on balconies, climb on furniture, hang out of
windows, or engage in other unsupervised activities. Use is at your own risk. Guest takes full responsibility
for all lost or broken items and any damages to the Property of any kind

Restrictions on Property Use: Guests are prohibited from engaging in any unlawful activity or any other
activity that constitutes a nuisance. Violation of this provision will result in immediate eviction without
refund, and Guest will be held liable for any damages to the Property, contents and grounds.

Pets: Pets are not allowed on the property without owners permission, (Owners discretion).  If Allowed, Pets
must be house broken, and must be placed in a portable pet kennel, when owner/owners are not present.
Pets must be on a leash at all times while not in the confines of the cabin.

Smoking Prohibited: All properties are nonsmoking properties and any form of smoking is prohibited inside
the properties.

Personal Property Loss: Manager is not responsible for any loss or damages whatsoever due to the loss,
theft or damage to Guest's personal property or to personal property owned by Guest's visitors including
any vehicles whether owned, leased or rented.

Subletting and Assignment: Guest may not sublet, sublicense or otherwise grant any rights to the Property.

Property Use: The Property may not be used for any activity in violation of local, state or federal laws, or
Missouri Insurance rules and regulations.

Attorney's Fees: If Manager consults legal counsel or a professional collection service for collecting any
amounts due to Manager under this Agreement, Guest shall be responsible for all costs of litigation and/or
collection in case of such, including actual attorney's fees.

Limitations on Rental: Manager will not be liable for circumstances beyond their control, including but not
limited to appliances or air-conditioning/heating failure, other mechanical failure, unfavorable weather,
disruption of utility services including cable television, etc. There will be no relocation, rental pro-ration or
refund in the event of such circumstances. In the event Manager is unable to deliver the Property to Guest
because of property sale, property Manager decision, fire, mandatory evacuation, eminent domain or Acts of
Nature, or if the property is unavailable because of construction delays or lack of utilities, Guest agrees that
Manager's sole liability, as a result of any of these conditions, will be a full refund of all payments tendered
by Guest. Guest expressly acknowledges that in no event will Manager be held liable for any other condition
out of the control of the Manager, or for any incidental or consequential damages, including but not limited
to, expenses that result from moving or for any other losses.

Tenancy: The Guest acknowledges that this is NOT a tenancy for the Property. The Property is not rented for
more than 30 days and is taxed and treated as a transient occupancy, akin to hotel accommodations.
Property laws do not apply to the license granted herein, and the Guest may be removed as a trespasser
immediately upon termination of this license. The Property is rented on regular short term periods and for a
significantly higher rate than a non-vacation rental. Often a Guest is scheduled to begin a vacation in the
Property on the same day as the checkout day of another prior Guest. If Guest stays even one additional
day, Manager would face significant logistical problems with the next Guest, including possible liability. As
such, Guest agrees to vacate immediately on the checkout day at 10:00 a.m. Failure to do so will entitle
Manager, in addition to all other remedies available to it, to have Guest ejected by law enforcement as
trespasser and to physically remove Guest and all of Guest's possessions from the Property (for which
Guest hereby grants permission and consent) and obtain damages and injunctive relief against Guest.
Indemnification: Guest agrees to release Manager from and against all liability should anyone be injured
upon the premises during the term of occupancy resulting from any cause whatsoever, except in the case of
personal injury caused by willful gross negligence on the part of the Manager.

Effective Date: Not withstanding any thing to the contrary, this Occupancy Agreement is binding and
effective when no signature is required, and Guest's affirmative assent to the terms is expressed by Guest's
reservation of the unit. If Guest desires to terminate this agreement due to lack of assent, he/she must do so
within three days of the date the reservation was made.

Governing Law: The terms and conditions stated herein will be interpreted by and governed under the laws
of the State of Missouri and any action arising out of this agreement shall be litigated in the State of Missouri.

Attorney's Fees: In the event of any action or proceeding commenced by any party, the prevailing party in
such action or proceeding shall be entitled to recover from the other party all cost and expenses thereof,
including actual attorney's fees and cost.

Invalid Provisions: If any provision of this Agreement is held to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable under
present or future laws effective during the term hereof, such provision shall be fully severable and this
Agreement shall be construed and enforced as if such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision had never
comprised a part hereof; and the remaining provisions hereof shall remain in full force and effect and shall
not be affected by the illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision or by its severance hereof. Furthermore, in
lieu of such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision there shall be added automatically as a part of the
Agreement a provision as similar in terms to such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision as may be
possible and still be legal, valid or enforceable.

Entire Agreement: This Agreement sets forth the entire understanding of the parties and supersedes all prior
agreements or understandings, whether written or oral, with respect to the subject matter hereof.  No
amendment or modification hereto shall be binding unless made in writing and signed by the parties hereto.

Waiver: The waiver by either party hereto of a breach of any term or provision of this Agreement shall not
operate or be construed as a waiver of a subsequent breach of same provision by any party or of the breach
of any other term or provisions of this Agreement.

Headings: Headings of the paragraphs herein are used solely for convenience and shall not be used for
interpretation or construing any word, clause, paragraph or provision of this Agreement.
