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

  • If the night prior is not booked by 4 PM 2 days prior to your check-in date, we will confirm a requested Early Check-In at that time.
  • If the prior night is booked, we won’t be able to commit to an early check-in time until after 11 AM when they check-out and we can assess the situation. We’ll let you know then when you can arrive.

Bear in mind that when you ask for an early check-in what you’re actually asking is for us to cut corners and maybe not clean as well as we normally will – not “put our best foot forward”. And so then when you don't show up til regular check-in time anyway, we’re left feeling like we’ve shortchanged you. (And interestingly we’ve observed over the years that the vast majority of folks who request early check-ins end up arriving way AFTER regular check-in time. This leaves us to wonder if maybe it’s a jinx to ask. 🙂 ) But with all that being said, we’re glad to try to accommodate your schedule the best that we can.

Late Check-out

  • If the night of your check-out date is not booked by 4 PM the day prior to your check-out date, we will confirm a requested Late Check-out then.
  • If the night of your check-out date is booked, we won’t be able to accommodate a Late Check-out as we will need the prep time.)

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 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)

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.

Thanks!   We’re looking forward to hosting you.
