Check-in is from 3:00pm until 6:00pm. We will have staff on property until 6pm. If you arrive after 6:00pm please let us know ahead of time, preferably 24 hours in advance, if possible. We appreciate your consideration. Upon entering your room, you will find your welcome letter with all of the important information regarding your stay. You can always contact us via telephone 828-270-0831 or by pressing the door bell to ask questions if our staff is not on property.
Check- out is until 11:00 AM, if you need to check out later please make arrangements with the Innkeeper. Please bring your room key (if you have one) and your reservation invoice to breakfast to give to the innkeeper. Make sure to sign for the total amount.

CREDIT CARD SECURITY:
Your credit card information is encrypted, stored and processed securely. Our employees do not have access to your credit card information beyond the initial reservation process.
Due to the small size of our property, cancellations affect us significantly. For any individual cancellation or change of date, please contact us no later than 15 days before arrival by telephone for a refund of your deposit, less a $50.00 per room cancellation fee.
If a full cancellation is made within 14 days of arrival, regardless of reason, you are financially responsible for the entire reservation unless we can re-book your room for the entire booked stay. If a partial cancellation is made within 14 days of your arrival, there will be a $25 change fee. If you need to change your dates within 14 days of your arrival, there will be a $50 rescheduling fee.
A 45-day cancellation notice is required on whole house bookings and for some holidays and special events with a cancellation fee of 10% of the entire cost of your reservation deducted from your refunded deposit..
ALL GROUP BOOKINGS require a 45 day notice to cancel, change dates or length of stay, with a cancellation fee of 10% of the entire cost of your reservation deducted from your refunded deposit.
We encourage the purchase of travel insurance to provide reimbursement due to personal health issues, family emergencies, or travel delays.
In the unlikely event that you do not contact us beforehand and do not show up for the stay, we are unable to make the room available for other guests. For this reason, we charge the full amount of the reservations for no-shows.
