A Note about Fire Safety & the Nature of Rural
Smoking is not allowed inside the cottage. Please exercise
responsibility when engaging in activities that create a
fire risk, such as smoking outside or operating the gas
grill. Our cottage is located in a rural area of
California, at high risk of fires in the drier
summertime. Please make note of the following guidelines
to avoid an accidental wildfire or structure fire:
- Always make sure any ignited materials are
completely extinguished after use.
- Do not discard cigarette butts or similar materials
into the surrounding nature.
- Do not use the gas grill on windy days.
- Fireworks are not allowed on the premises or
anywhere in Arroyo Grande!
- Make sure vehicle exhaust pipes do not come within
10 feet of surrounding brush and foliage. Parking in
designated areas only.
- Do not leave an active fireplace unattended, and
make sure all ignited materials are completely
extinguished after use.
- Exercise responsibility when operating kitchen
equipment: turn off stove and coffee maker when not in
- Do not leave children unattended in the presence of
a fire hazard, such as the gas grill or stove.
Rural Arroyo Grande can offer an unusually close
experience with certain wildlife, such as hawks,
kestrels, vultures, osprey, quail, wild turkey, deer,
fox, rabbits, snakes, lizards, amphibians, and much
more. Please respect the surrounding nature, and do not
harass the wildlife. Also be aware that rural California
is home to a few potentially dangerous animals, such as
mountain lions, black bears, bobcats, coyotes, badgers,
and rattlesnakes. Although encounters with such animals
are rare, be aware of your surroundings, and never
approach such animals. Most likely you will see deer and
wild turkey and many birds, especially hummingbirds,
they are regulars at the guest cottage.
