    Some things to consider:
Arrival / Departure?
Hot tub temp?

Are you celebrating a special occasion?
(We’d like to leave an appropriate greeting card.)


Let us know if you’d like Early Check-in or Late Check-out.

Regular check-in is anytime after 4.  Regular check-out is by 11.
Variations may be possible if surrounding bookings allow.

*Early Check-in consideration:
(If the night prior is booked, once they check-out at 11 and we can assess the situation, we can let you know when you can arrive.)

Bear in mind that when you ask for an early check-in what you may actually be asking is for us to cut corners as we may not have time to clean and prepare the cabin as well as we normally like to – not “put our best foot forward”. And so when you then don’t show up til regular check-in time anyway, we’re left feeling like we’ve shortchanged you.

But with all that being said, we’re glad to try to accommodate your schedule the best that we can.

Bear in mind we’re talking about 300-400 gallons of water here: if it’s cold outside, it’s not going to heat up very fast / if it’s hot outside, it’s not going to cool down very fast. And since our typical guest stay is only 2 days (that’s a mere 27 waking hours), we offer this option so that you can make the most of your getaway time.

(We have this crazy notion that folks come to the wilderness to appreciate viewing Nature out the windows. However, despite the fact that there are no Peeping Toms on the mountain, we find that 95% of city folk close the place up like a cave. Hence the question – so we won’t waste our time opening them all for you if you’re just going to close them again.)

In case we need to contact you enroute or during your stay, what’s your preferred

In order for us to better prepare the property for your outdoor interests:   (check all that apply)

When outside:

         (40′ at Valley Vista / 15′ across the deck at Rainbow View)

         (pit & cauldron at Valley Vista / cauldron on deck at Rainbow View)

         (only at Valley Vista – croquet, badminton, horseshoes, cornhole)

         (trails may be hard to follow – we can only maintain them sporadically)

The mountain is home to all sorts of critters, and you may see deer, possom, fox, racoon, bear, turkey, snakes, turtles, lizards, frogs & toads wondering about.

If you’re staying at either cabin you may get a visit from Scooter, the neighborhood friendly deer. If you’re staying at Valley Vista Cabin, we live close enough that when he shows up at our place, we may be able to walk him over to meet you.

Let us know if we can assist in your plans?
Would you like any suggestions / locals’ hints / inside scoops?

Thanks!   We’re looking forward to hosting you.
