A deposit totaling 1 nights lodging cost & damage deposit is due within 10 days of making a reservation. If a deposit is not received within 10 days, we cannot guarantee your reservation. Final payment is due at check in. All rates are subject to taxes.
As our cabins are booked well in advance, we regret that deposits cannot be refunded on cancellations of less than 14 days before scheduled arrival date. If a cancellation is made less than 14 days before arrival date, a refund will only be issued if the rental can be re-rented for the entire time of your reservation. A cancellation fee of $25 will be charged for all cancellations. Sorry, but we cannot offer last minute refunds or credits for cancellations made due to inclement weather, illness, change of plans or acts of God. No refunds will be issued for early check outs or for no shows in your party. (We hold the rental just for you, and are providing a service to you) Four wheel drive or front wheel drive vehicles may be necessary for some during winter months, though this is usually not required.
Check in is by appointment only. It is your responsibility to call the day before your arrival date to schedule a check in time. We do not have an “office” for check- in. (As we are busy doing maintenance, cleaning and other duties, it may be difficult at times to reach us. If you get our answering machine, please leave a message with the approximate time you expect to arrive.) Then, upon arrival in Nashville, you need to call to let us know you have arrived for check in. We must meet you at the cabin with the keys for check in… If unable to reach us at (812) 988-4117 day of Check In, please try our cell phone at (812) 345-0173 ( for check in only or emergencies, please).
