Guests will hold harmless and indemnify MM, and the Home or property owner against any and all claims and actions arising out of activities that they participate in during their stay, and all risks associated with the possibility of slippery conditions, falling snow and ice, freezing or high temperatures at all times inside and outside of the Home, including, without limitation, expenses, judgments, fines, settlements and other amounts actually and reasonably incurred in connection with any liability, suit, action, loss, or damage arising or resulting from the Guest stay, other than claims arising from the gross negligence of MM, its agent or employee, or any third party under the control or supervision of MM, other than MM or its agent, employee or subcontractors.

6.5       All Guests, jointly and severally, at their cost, agree to be responsible for and to replace or repair any injury, damage or destruction to the Home, its furnishings, equipment, and/or vehicles caused by themselves or by any member of their party. Accidental Damage is addressed in 1.6.

6.6       All Guests agree to act in a responsible and respectful manner toward other Guests, MM Staff, OSP staff and neighbors of adjoining properties.
