GUEST RENTAL POLICY
Please read this document carefully, it contains details you need to know about your cabin rental.
Check-in times vary according to season but range between 2 - 4 pm. Please be courteous of our check-in time. An early arrival to the Watauga Lake area is great but please do not go to the cabin until check-in time. Our cleaning staff needs to get in and out as quickly as possible and the only way this can be done is if we stay out of their way. A car in the driveway may deter the cleaners from approaching cabin and delay your cabin from being cleaned. If you’d like an earlier check in please email with your request and we will accommodate you if at all possible.
Late arrivals: You are welcome to arrive as late as you might need to and go directly to your cabin. If a late arrival is expected you may want to carry a flash light with you – very hard to find in just the moonlight. Most, but not all cabins have a motion light that will come on.
Check out times vary according to season but range between 10 - 11 am. You can expect housekeeping to arrive on time. Charges will apply if check out times aren’t followed. You may request an early check in or a late check out. Email 48 hours in advance with your request and if other guests are not scheduled then we are happy to accommodate – There may be an extra fee. During the lean winter months this is a possibility however, summer and fall is our high season when we are back to back with guests and may not be possible.
Rental fees: A deposit is required to reserve dates. We offer convenient payment plans. Options can be discussed at the time of reservation.

This deposit will be refunded in full if there is no damage to the cabin.Housekeeping: You can expect kitchens to be equipped with typically appliances, coffee makers, can openers, microwave, stove, fridge, washer, dryer, and gas grills. There are starter rolls of toilet paper and paper towels but not unlimited supplies so you are encourage to bring paper products with you. There is a limited amount of dishwashing detergents, laundry detergents, trash bags and hand soap so plan to bring extra if you plan on cooking and washing. Salt, pepper, spices, coffee filters are typically found but not guaranteed. You are welcome to call your individual housekeeper and talk directly with her about the cabin supplies should you need more details.
Hot Tubs: Please remember there are certain health risks that are associated with using a Hot Tub. Our housekeepers drain, sanitize, refill and replenish chemicals in all tubs prior to your arrival; therefore, it may not be warm till later that evening. Hot Tub covers are for insulation purposes and are not designed to support a person or persons. DO NOT STAND ON THE HOT TUB COVERS, they will break and you may be charged for replacement. Remember when not using the Hot Tub, leave the cover on so the Hot Tub will stay warm and debris will stay out. Please shower before using the Hot Tub as body lotions/etc. mixed with the Hot Tub chemicals can cause a rash on your skin. Also shower after using the Hot Tub. Baby’s in diapers are not allowed in hot tubs. No children under the age of 12 are allowed in the Hot Tub or Jacuzzi. Children under the age of 17 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Use of hot tub carries risk that may result in serious injury or death, and unsupervised use by children is prohibited. Elderly persons, expecting mothers, infants and anyone subject to heart disease, diabetes, low or high blood pressure, strokes, epilepsy or similar afflictions should not enter a spa alone and without consulting their physician.
