Damage Policy & Excess Cleaning Policy
Madsen’s wants your stay to be a memorable one and, in order to keep our costs affordable for families and our facilities clean and comfortable, we’ve adopted the following policies: You are responsible for any damage and repair costs caused by you or anyone in your party. Our cabins are “Housekeeping Cabins”, which means you agree to “Keep House”. Because of rising operating costs and our limited cleaning time, you will be charged accordingly for excess time spent cleaning your cabin.
Visitor Policy

We know you’re on vacation and as such probably want to meet up with friends and family. Therefore, we welcome non-registered guests of Madsen’s Resort for reasonable lengths of time. For the privacy and security of all our guests, we reserve the right to limit the number of visitors and length of stays and if necessary, we retain the right to charge for visitors. All overnight visitors MUST register in advance and will be charged.

Cancellation Policy

You are financially responsible for your entire confirmed reservation. Please understand that we are a family business working hard to make a living in Minnesota’s summer season, which is very short. Once we have lost income from a rental, we cannot recover the loss. In case of cancellation (for any reason including personal emergency) our ability to return a deposit depends on our ability to re-rent the unit for those dates. Deposits are not refundable if cancellation is made after April 1. Prior to April 1, deposits are refundable less a $75.00 rebooking fee after the cabin is re-rented. If we are unable to rebook your canceled unit, you will be financially responsible for your entire confirmed reservation and will be billed.
