I recall a teacher once telling me the only bad question was the one not asked. We encourage guests to ask us when they have a question. We are happy to answer any question. You can also find answers to questions in the “cabin book” that is in each cabin and usually found on the coffee table.

Q. What is the check in / out time?
A. Check in is after 4 pm.
Check out is before 10 am.
Sorry, but we have had to add a charge for not checking out on time! Call for details.
Bottom line, we need guests to check out on time!
Q. Can I check in early?
A. Currently our policy is to allow guests to check in up to 2 hours early if the cabin has been cleaned and is ready. This may change without notice…
Q. Where do I pick up the key to my cabin?
A. All of our cabins are self check in / out. Each cabin has a keyless entry (like on a car). Your confirmation letter will have the code.
If your cabin is on a gated road, that code will also be in your confirmation letter.
Q. Are your cabins hard to find?
A. Our cabins are near Wears Valley Road and not hard to find. Very clear directions will be included in your confirmation letter.
No problem, just call us and we will be happy to help!
Q. Can you send me the address of the cabin before we make a reservation?
A. It is our company policy not to give out address to the cabins prior to someone making a reservation. The reason for this is the safety of our guests.
Q. What will the weather be like during my stay?
A. You can probably find a pretty fair answer to this question on Google. But seriously folks, I do not know…
Q. Are there Bears/Wildlife near the cabins?
A. Most of our cabins are near the GSMNP and wooded area’s. There is wildlife about. You may or may not see any while staying. Please do not leave garbage out and keep the windows on your car closed at night!
Q. What do I need to bring?
A. We recommend you bring the following:
1. A flashlight so you can see the keypad to unlock the door after hours.
2. Binoculars and a Camera!
3. Your confirmation letter (it has the code and directions to your cabin)
4. Bar soap, shampoo and other personal items.
5. Extra paper products (the cabins come with a starter supply)
We do our best to keep the cabins equipped and stocked with everything needed for your stay. It is an impossible task to keep up with! If you find your cabin does not have something you need, you are welcome to call us and we will either provide you with what is missing or let you know where you can find it.
Q. Where is the code for the internet?
A. All information about the cabin can be found in the cabin book. Each cabin has a book and we do our best to keep the information in the book up todate!
