Seasonal Rental Policies

Seasonal Rental Policies


A Standard Season runs approximately 4 months from December to April. An Extended Season runs at least 6 months and 1 day from November to May. Please contact Select Real Estate to get the exact dates for each year.

Cancellation Policy:

All cancellations are subject to the forfeiture of the $75.00 reservation fee + tax ($6.75), deposits and advance rents made on the reservation. Select Real Estate is not responsible for any owner cancellations except to the extent that we will try to relocate you in a similar property.

Security Deposits:

Properties are inspected by our staff prior to and following your departure. Your security deposits will be refunded within 30 days after of your check-out date as long as the property is left in good condition and all utility bills are paid in full. Our expectation is that you will leave the property in the same condition that you found it. Otherwise, you will be notified concerning any additional charges or reductions. It is your responsibility to report to Select Real Estate any issues with your rental when you arrive.

Payment Method:

A $500.00 damage deposit is required when reserving a property. We do not accept credit cards; therefore, initial deposits may be made by personal check. All final balances must be in the form of cash (please have exact amount), certified bank check or money order unless payment is received 14 days prior to arrival date.


All non-residential rentals less than 185 days are subject to the New Hampshire 9% Lodging Tax. Extended or residential rentals more than 185 days are exempt.


We provide information regarding utility conversion prior to arrival date. Electric and Fuel are changed into Occupant's name for duration of lease term. Phone, Cable TV and Internet (if applicable) remain in Landlord's name and bills will be forwarded to Occupant for payment within 10 days of receipt.




Costs differ greatly depending on size of house, insulation, amount of use, general temps maintained, use of woodstove, etc. Heating bills are transferred from Landlord to Occupant during the season - bills do not come through this office - so even ball park figures are difficult.


It is the Occupant's responsibility to maintain access to the property. We will provide the name of a snowplowing contractor to you prior to arrival date. In condo rentals, snowplowing is included. Sanding and shoveling services are also available at an additional cost.

Pets / Smoking:

No pets or smoking are permitted unless you are renting one of our properties without either of these restrictions. If you have allergies to pets, please notify us prior to booking as some owners bring their pets to their properties even though they may be listed as "No Pet" properties.


Sheets and towels are not provided in our vacation rentals. Please refer to the property description on our website regarding bed sizes. Pillows, blankets and comforters or bedspreads are provided.

Rubbish Removal:

Please remember that rubbish removal is your responsibility. Town dumps are conveniently located in Conway and Madison. Madison and Conway require separation of glass, plastic and aluminum cans for purposes of recycling. Do not under any circumstances leave rubbish at the property. Procedures regarding rubbish removal will be provided to you at the time of your arrival.


On the day of your departure date, all keys must be returned to Select Real Estate. Lost or non-returned keys will be subject to a charge.


On the date of your departure please make sure the house is clean and in the same condition as when you arrived. If you do not wish to clean, please notify us if you would like to arrange to pay for a cleaning upon check out.
