Do you allow pets?

You may bring a dog (sorry, no cats).  But it must be pre-approved by me prior to booking the reservation.  There is a $50 fee for a pet.


Is there a maximum number of people?

Yes.  At each of our homes, there are enough beds for up to 8 people.  Due to safety regulations, you may not go over that number.  The only exception would be a baby who would be sleeping in its own bed brought along by the guests.


What is there to do at your home?

If your reason for going to the mountains includes just gazing at the wonder of it all, then you'll love to spend the time rocking away on any of our rocking chairs with some hot chocolate in the cooler months.  Or enjoy some southern sweet tea in the summer.  At Carolina Mountain Dream, kids can play upstairs in the bonus room while you relax.  At Everview, we have a terrific backyard that kids and adults alike can run around in or play games.  There is also a downstairs living area with plenty of entertainment options.

The spaciousness of our homes allows you a chance to pick a spot to relax by the fire, read a good book, play some board games with the family or cook up a great southern country meal.


What makes your homes special?

Our homes have attracted many guests due to their spaciousness, featured amenities, proximity to area attractions/activities, and attention to detail.  We have worked hard to ensure that you have everything you and your traveling companions need so that you are free to enjoy your vacation in comfortable surroundings.

The mountain views alone from both homes keep many of our guests returning year after year.  If you haven’t experienced this part of the country before, you will soon learn that one vacation is not enough to be able to experience all it has to offer.  If you haven’t already, I encourage you to read the reviews left by our guests and see for yourself.


What are the coolest nearby activities? 

Just send me an inquiry with absolutely no obligation and I'll be glad to provide with a travel guide that I have put together each home.  It will include the website link to each location, comments, and distance from our homes.  When you make a reservation, I will provide an updated Calendar of Events so you don't miss out on area festivities during the time you plan to visit.


Where is the nearest grocery store?

We supply you with a starter set of coffee and paper goods and there are a few neighborhood convenience stores for a quick run for some needed supplies.  Waynesville is just a 15-20 minute drive away and you will find a few major grocery stores as well as other retail shops whose names you will recognize where you can pick up all you need for your stay.


Is your home easily accessible?

Yes!  You don't need a four wheel drive and our roads are open year round to make it easy for guests to travel safely to our homes.  I would just caution that a part of the road leading to Carolina Mountain Dream is gravel and may not be suitable for motorcycles.  Also, after a heavy snowfall, the roadway to our Maggie Valley home may not be safe to travel on until it is cleared by the plow secured by the homeowners association.  Please make sure to be aware of the pending weather conditions so that you have enough supplies on hand.  Sometimes it may take a couple of days to clear the road.


When will my Good Care Deposit be returned?

Assuming no loss or damage, you will receive your refund within a 5-7 days after check-out.


What are my payment options?

If there is enough time to process it, you may pay by check.  Or other options include credit card and electronic check.  One half of the total is needed to secure your dates.  The balance is due 30 days before check-in.  If your dates are at least four months away, I am willing to work out an alternate payment plan.
