As you plan your trip to the mountains, please remember we do get rain, snow and some foggy days and occasional inconveniences which are out of our control. Winter weather in the Blue Ridge Mountains can occur from November through April. The majority of our homes are accessed by mountain roads, which will be icy in winter weather. For the safety of you and your party, please be prepared to drive in snow and ice. This means 4-wheel drive, good tires, and chains. It is your responsibility to be prepared for hazardous road conditions. There will be NO refunds, allowances, or date changes resulting from your negligence in this matter.


Please be patient if you encounter any inconvenience. We will be as responsive as possible, and will certainly try to remedy those things which are in our control. Samples of inconveniences which are not in our control, and which do not warrant any refund of rental monies include: breakdown of TVs, hot tubs or other appliances; service disruption of internet, phone, cable or satellite reception; construction taking place in the area; a home which is not decorated or accommodated to your personal taste; bad weather (if your vacation is during the winter months, please come prepared to drive in the snow and ice to reach your rental).
