****** House Rules******

Dear Prospective Guest,

There’s no such thing as a check-in time that’s too late, so no worries there. Repeat guests that have stayed with us before and have positive reviews deserve special privileges, let me know if you’d like an earlier check-in time than 5PM. It can usually be arranged if we do not have a back to back stay. Worst case scenario, we can store your luggage, make you a cup of tea and you can lounge down in the gazebo by the river while we are preparing the cabin. We are not able to accommodate later check out times as we are set up on instant booking and never know when a last minute booking will come in.

Our only request is please remove your shoes while inside the cabin and do not invite visitors or unregistered guests, no insurance coverage for visitors, the cabin and all the amenities we provide are only for our registered guests.

The cleaning fee covers the time to prepare the cabin for a guests arrival, the fee is not intended to be a fee for cleaning up after a guests departure. We are local hosts that manage our own cabin and do out own cleaning. We use a very detailed check list and video the entire cabin before guests check in. Please be respectful of guests that may be checking in behind you and plan ahead for your departure tasks below.

Please leave the cabin neat and tidy, do not strip the sheets off the bed we prefer to do this ourselves, just put the beds back the way you found them with bedding left flat on top of the beds. Bath towel sets are color coded by bedroom. Place soiled towel sets assigned to that bedroom in laundry basket located inside bedroom closet. Please leave the kitchen in the same condition it was in when you arrived, wipe down range and counter tops, clean out refrigerator(s) only unopened foods are to be left inside the refrigerator(s), load and start the dishwasher(s) if you are unsure where kitchen inventory belongs please leave on the counter. If grill has been used please brush grill and clean side trays. Confirm Home Theater Room Projector System has been turned off per instructions, turn lights and ceiling fans off, check to make sure all doors are locked and bag all trash from kitchen and bathrooms and toss in trash bin(s) that have been allotted for your stay on the way out.

Before use of the hot tub please shower with soap and water as this helps the water stay clear and in balance with only needing chemical check and balancing at departure.

No House Parties or Special Events without payment in full for the event and written permission from host (please refer to other things to to note section for additional fees and requirements).

After you book and well before your arrival date, you’ll receive an email from us explaining how to get to the cabin, where to park, and all sorts of good information about things to do in and around this wonderful town. When you arrive, there will be tourist brochures and welcome letter with more information, like WiFi access code and restaurant recommendations.

We want you to thoroughly enjoy our cabin and your time in Blue Ridge. We’ll do everything we can to make that happen. It’s hoped you’ll book with us over and over again. We truly want you to enjoy the accommodations. We'll do everything I can to make your stay wonderful.

Sincerely,
Lisa & Richard - your hosts
