But it was rejected due to fears that the small island would be overwhelmed by tourists if access were too easy. 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] This isn't meant to be obnoxious but I could use some advice about our lake house. We just purchased it this spring so this winter will be my first time cleaning it out and closing it down for winter. Can anyone give me some pointers as to what I can do to make opening it up next spring less complicated? (Other than the obvious of giving it a good cleaning, making sure refrigerators are empty and clean, no trash, ect) Will coming up once a month to check on it be enough? Should I leave clean linens sealed in closets over winter or leave them on the beds? The electricity needs left on due to security system but what about gas, water, and sewage? Would it be easier to hire a cleaning service once a month during winter or will this final clean out last (other than dust accumulation) through spring? 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Hire a local company that checks on it; does the final clean out, puts everything back on, etc. Make certain that the police have your contact info and consider security cameras that your alarm company monitors. A cleaning company is not worth much if there is no water. Have you thought of a winter tenant, maybe a teacher who can watch it. Clean linens should be in plastic containers, obviously baking soda in refrigerator, have someone plow the driveway so it doesn't look abandoned. Maybe a battery operated lamp or two. Ask your realtor. Have the gas company turn the gas off and test it. [ Reply | More ]

Turn off the water and drain the pipes, don't keep linens on the bed - (mice love to hang out in a made bed) - I pack mine up in plastic bags and put them in the closet. I think having a cleaning service coming once per month is a bit of a waist - get them to come in the spring for a big clean. In the past Ive done the spring clean myself but this year I'm going to hire somebody. We have a guy who comes and checks up on the place every two weeks during the winter so we don't get check on it ourselves. [ Reply | More ]

I would be concerned about human trafficking, absolutely. These traffickers lure these young people in with promises of modeling, acting, nanny, and house keeping jobs and take them to other countries. Once there they are usually either held against their will and forced into prostitution or sold to someone who keeps them against their will to either clean their homes or rape them. They will pay for the victims passport and travel expenses and tell the victims they must work off the debt. They often keep the passports and IDs making it difficult to escape. It happens too often, especially here in NYC. My mil works at a nonprofit here in NYC that specializes in rehabilitation of sex trafficking victims. An alarming number are from Russia.
