APPLICABLE LAW/CONDUCT

Guest hereby agrees that all occupants/invitees at the Cottage will adhere to all applicable laws, including, without limitation. No drinking of an alcoholic beverage by persons under the age of 21 is allowed on the Property. Use of the Property shall not be such as to disturb or offend neighbors or residents. Parties are not permitted on the Property. Guests also agree to adhere to any rules or instructions posted in writing at the Cottage. In the event of a breach of the foregoing, Saratoga reserves the right to demand that the Guest immediately vacate the Cottage, resulting in a forfeiture of all amounts paid to date by the Guest. Guest hereby acknowledges that the occupancy of the Cottage by Guest does not create a landlord-tenant relationship between Guest and us.
