Our cabin is in an authentic mountain neighborhood of vacation homes and local residences. While a few of the residenses are not in ideal condition, we know each of our neighbors; they can be counted on in a pinch!

Due to the nature of our mountain location, our home may lose power during weather events. Outages typically last for 2-3 hours when this occurs. Flashlights and extra blankets are provided for these occurrences. When power is out, cooking options are limited. If a guest chooses to check out during a power outage, a refund of the nightly fee will be provided. Guests choosing to keep their reservation will be charged the full booking amount.

The hot tub chemicals are balanced twice a week. The tech is onsite for approximately 15 minutes. While it typically can be used 30 minutes after service is complete, if a water change is necessary, the hot tub will take 4-5 hours to reach the desired temperature. Hot tub use is not recommended for guests with certain medical conditions, guests with skin sensitivities, or children. Please consult with your doctor prior to use if this applies to you.

Infants are counted within the max occupancy of our home. Only registered guests are permitted on property; no visitors allowed.
