|What happens if we can't get there due to weather and arrive a day or two late. Do we have to pay for days we do not use?||We will not be responsible for lost days due to weather, transportation problems, illness, or other losses that are out of our control. There is travel insurance available to cover such loss.|
|Is your unit smoke free? (we are sensitive to smoke)||ABSOLUTLY, YES !|
|How much alcohol can we bring into Canada?||Each person 19 years of age or older is entitled to bring 24 - 12oz bottles of beer, or 2 - 750ml bottles of wine, or 40 ounces of hard liquor.|
|Why are there no taxes added to your rates when most others have to add 12% for Tax? Is it really tax free?||It is not tax free, we have already paid the taxes.

We are Bob and Sheryl Bjerk. Our primary home is a beach cabin on Puget Sound where we retired after operating a small animal veterinary clinic in Anacortes. We love the winter! Sheryl has done many years of ski patrolling at Mt. Baker and Snoqualmie pass. Bob is a dog sledding enthusiast and worked a number of years as a trail vet for the Iditarod sled dog race in Alaska. It’s no wonder that we choose to have our vacation home where we can ski and enjoy the snow.
It's good to be back again
