The WiFi to connect to is WBR Cabins with the password being whitebirchresort. The wireless router is located in each individual unit. The best signal is on the main floor.
The coffee pot is always left plugged in left on by the back switch. It will have hot water stored in it all times. To make coffee all you have to do is put coffee grounds in and then pour a pot of water into the top. Shut the lid and wait for the coffee to brew back thru.
If for some reason the coffee maker was shut off, turn the switch back on in the back and let it set for 20 minutes to heat the tank of water back up. To check if the coffee pot is on you can test the warmer switch on the front to see if it lights up. If it does light up it is on correctly.
Do not pour used coffee, half brewed coffee back into the tank as this will plug the system.
The garbage is to disposed in a tied bag provided in a wood box trailer at the east entrance of resort. Please tie the bags and no fish guts since we do have a fish cleaning house for this. All trash goes here and is recycled completely by our county. You can put cardboard in the garbage cans next to the trailer.
Campfire wood is free for you to use. It is located down on the east end of the pond by the pontoon awnings. For homes #1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, you can use any of the wagons provided there to haul it to your fire barrel, which is by your cabin. Unit #8 has wood next to the backside of the cabin. Then #9, #10 and #11 can get their wood at a pile right in-between the garage doors close to your fire pit. Then for #12 you get your wood right next to the side of the cabin.
If you have a pontoon rental please text Monte at 218-553-0209 to get the key and the watercraft 101 directions.

Please keep the hot tubs covered as much as possible to conserve heat. During the winter i provide extra insulated blankets since if these are left off the hot tub will not stay warm enough. It is a lot easier to put the covers on as you getting out and to get them on correctly.

Grilling is prohibited on decks and balconies or directly under porches. A gas grill is provided with all homes, except #9 and #10 as a free amenity for guests’ use. Grills are required to be cleaned by guests’ after every use. To light the grill we provide a lighter to use since 90% of the electric lighters quit working after a year. Make sure gas is not on before you start, then light the lighter and there is a small hole on the end of the grill to poke the lighter in. Then turn that side of the burner on and it will ignite. If it does not light immediately turn the gas off and wait 5 minutes. Always turn the gas bottle off after every use.
