DESIGNATED SMOKING AREA: There is a designated smoking area in the parking lot beginning 15’ east of the main house. It is a violation of the House Rules to smoke outside of this area. Guests who smoke will need to agree that they understand this policy.
WILDFIRE: This area has a very high risk of wildfire. Open flames are strictly prohibited. Please do not park your car on grassy areas, as the exhaust system could ignite a fire. Numerous fires in the region, and sometimes in the local area, happen every year. Keep in mind that a fire in the area does not necessarily mean it is an immediate threat to the Inn. Yuba County OES is pretty good about letting people know about evacuations. The app Watch Duty does a good job of providing current information on active fires as does the website yubanet.com. If a local fire does happen, Frenchtown Inn staff will endeavor to keep you informed and up to date.
SWIMMING IN LAKE: Swimming in the lake is not permitted. Frenchtown Inn makes no warranty as to the safety of swimming in the lake.Fishing is allowed as catch and release. Please see the House Manager for further information.
WILD ANIMALS & RURAL AREA: This is a rural area. Wild animals, such as bears, mountain lions, and rattlesnakes inhabit the area. However, such encounters are rare. There is an abundance of Poison Oak. There may be other hazards such as rotting trees, uncovered holes, and the like. Please be careful. WINDOWS: Please do not open the windows or use the windows for egress or ingress
WEBSITE: Frenchtown Inn makes its best efforts to ensure that all the information that appears on the website is accurate.
SERVICE ANIMALS: If you have a legitimate service animal (not a therapy animal or an emotional support animal), please let the House Manager know beforehand. You will be responsible for any damages that your service animal might cause. There will be a refundable animal damage deposit required. You be asked to sign a statement that your animal is trained, what type of training, and will behave properly. You will be asked to provide the animal's Veterinary Health Form and/or an immunization record or other proof that the animal's vaccinations are current within one year of your intended stay 24 hours in advance. Proof of vaccination will need an accompanying true and accurate photograph of the animal for visual verification. Your service animal will have to be on a leash at all times. You will also need to provide a kennel for your animal. If you do not have a kennel, one can be provided for an extra fee. Please note there are fines and penalties for misrepresenting a canine as a service animal.
ARTWORK: Some of the paintings and prints are by local artists. If you are interesting in purchasing something you like, please contact the House Manager.
DAMAGE AND/OR THEFT OF INN PROPERTY: You are liable for any damage howsoever caused (whether by the deliberate, negligent, or reckless act) to the room (s), Inn’s premises or property caused by you or any person in your party whether or not staying at the Inn during your stay.
