* Please be prepared for winter driving conditions*
Please do up all your dishes before you check out. Smoking around the fire-pit ONLY! Please keep pets off the furniture and supervised at all time, we have a small hobby farm and often our chickens are free ranging. Tin Poppy runs on solar power so please turn the furnace off or down whenever you leave, and the lights off too, thanks. Tin Poppy also gets its water from a shallow well, so we ask you to keep your showers on the shorter side.
I hope you have a wonderful stay at Tin Poppy and get to take in some of the beauty the area has to offer!
