How do I book a home?

You can make a reservation directly on this website by using the “check availability box” to the left. If you need assistance, please call our office at 800-684-2171 and a receptionist will be happy to help you.

Can I bring my pet with me?

We have a few homes that are dog friendly depending on their age/size/breed. All pets must be pre-approved by calling our office at 800-684-2171.  A non-refundable pet fee of $200.00 is required at the time of booking.

How many pets am I allowed to bring?

We have a one-pet policy. If you are thinking about bringing more than one pet, please contact us before you arrive, and we will evaluate the situation.

How do I check in?

All of our properties offer the convenience of checking in directly at the property without any need to stop by our office first. Prior to your arrival you’ll receive several emails and text messages from us with instructions on how to access the home. Check in begins at 4:00pm unless you have made prior arrangements to arrive early. The door code will be active 30 minutes prior to your check-in time of 4:00 pm or your PREAPPROVED arrival time if you have purchased an early check-in.

How do I get an early check-in or a late check-out?

If the home you reserved was not occupied the previous night, we will do our best to arrange an early check-in. However, we often will not know the readiness of a property before 11:00 a.m. on the day of your arrival, even if it has been vacant for several days. Remember there may be maintenance or other needs scheduled. The same applies for an early check-out. Please call our office at 800-684-2171 to inquire if an early check-in is possible. There is a $75.00 fee once approved. 

How do I check in to my vacation rental home?

Most of our properties have an electronic lock. The access code will be active 30 minutes prior to your check-in time of 4:00 pm or your preapproved early check in time. The code will be sent via email and text message on the day of your arrival at approximately 3:00 pm. If you have been approved for an early arrival, the door code will be sent an hour before your approved check-it time. 

Is parking available on the property?

Yes, parking is provided. Each property has its own designated parking area. Specific parking instructions will be included in your Digital Property Guide.

How many parking spaces are available for my rental?

This will vary depending on the property you have booked. Detailed parking information is included in the Digital Property Guide you will receive at the time of booking. 

What should I pack to enjoy my trip and feel at home in town?

We’re a mountain town with a laid-back vibe. Even in summer, nighttime and early morning temperatures can be cool so be sure to bring items you can layer. Bring jeans, shorts, a lightweight, pullover sweater, wool or cotton scarf, T-shirts with short and long sleeves, puffer jacket, flannel shirt, swimsuit, everyday shoes, hiking boots or walking shoes, flip-flops, a sun hat or baseball cap, sunglasses, sunscreen, toiletries, a Kindle or book, chargers, phone and laptop (if you plan to work).

Is WiFi available and will I be able to work from the home I rent?

While our homes do provide internet service, due to our unique location in the mountains, service can be spotty and signal strength may not be adequate for work needs. Some of our homes have satellite internet and use a shared data pool which can cause bandwidth issues. Even our homes located in town can experience slow internet speed during the busy summer months.  Inclement weather can also impact internet service. Because of these issues, we do not recommend that you plan to work from the home if it is imperative that you have 24/7 access.  We offer no guarantee that internet service will be reliable and while we’ll make every effort to get service restored as quickly as possible, service providers are not always able to schedule an appointment in a timely manner.

Are Sheets and Towels Provided?

Yes. Each of our homes have 2 sets of linens for each bed and towels and washcloths for each guest (at least 2 per guest) based on the number of guests the home accommodates.

Does the house have beach towels?

Unfortunately, beach towels are not provided.

Are there condiments, paper towels, etc. at the property?

We provide a starter kit of toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, hand soap, bathroom toiletries, laundry detergent, and garbage bags. It’s enough for one or two nights, but will likely not be enough to get you through your entire stay. You may want to bring some necessary items from home or plan to buy some upon arrival. Homes are not stocked with cooking oils or spices, condiments, coffee, coffee filters, or food storage items including plastic wrap or foil.

Is there a cleaning fee, and how often is the property cleaned?

Yes, the cleaning fee is included in the total cost of your rental fee. The property will be thoroughly cleaned before your arrival and after you depart. If you are staying for an extended period, we may be able to arrange for additional cleaning at your request.

Is firewood provided if the home has a wood burning fireplace or a firepit?

No. You may order firewood which will be delivered to the home prior to your arrival. Please allow at least one week for delivery.  Order early to ensure wood is available upon your arrival. Available in two sizes, $50.00 (2 – 3 nights) & $100.00 (5 – 7 nights). Bundles include Firestarter sticks.

What is provided in the kitchen?

Our homes come equipped with a basic set of cookware, sufficient plates & silverware for the occupancy of the home, and basic serving and baking dishes. Most homes do not have unusual items such as crock pots or blenders, so if you’re planning a dish that requires an unusual item it is best to bring that from your home.

What kind of coffee maker is provided?

All of our homes have a Kcup and a drip coffee maker. 

We’re bringing our 6-month-old baby. Will the house have a crib and high chair?

We will have a pack-n-play and a booster seat available at the office for a $35.00 delivery fee. Please call our office inquire if they are available.

ADA SERVICE ANIMALS: With regards to ADA compliant service animals, it should be noted that vacation rentals are considered private property and are exempt from the same rules and regulations that commercial properties must follow with regards to ADA compliant service animals. It should be noted that only dogs are recognized as service animals by the ADA.
