We enjoying renting our house.  So far the crews have been VERY nice. No problems. But our property is unusual in that we have 1/2 acre of area for on property parking for 40+ cars, trucks motor-homes etc- so no neighbors to worry about. Another 1/2 acre is the house and 1/3 acre is an undeveloped area with woods.  (One film used our snow covered backyard with a view of the frozen lake to be RUSSIA.)

The best part is seeing our house in the finished product. In honesty it sometimes looks better in the film or photo than in real life-ha!  Props include: Several small boats that were used. But we offer them for no charge.

Tips or Suggestions: The three most important words in renting out property is flexibility, flexibility, FLEXIBILITY. We are open to most everything. Early start time- sure. Need to run late- sure. Need to paint this wall- sure. Just make sure there are no surprises-  make sure you and the crew are in total understanding BEFORE anything gets started.
