ROAD CONDITIONS: It is highly recommended that you purchase travel insurance for winter reservations. Most roads are well maintained but can be winding, narrow or steep. Long passenger vans, motorcycles, buses and trailers may not be able to access every home. Call us first if you decide to bring the latter and we can tell you if those types of vehicles are accessible to the cabin that you have chosen. In the WINTER MONTHS, it is common to have hazardous road conditions AND power outages. It is strongly recommended that all guests be prepared with either chains or four wheel drive as most units will be inaccessible without it. Winter road maintenance or conditions are NOT GUARANTEED. Most of the main city roads will be treated, but there are hundreds of back road in the mountains (where your cabins are.) They generally will not be cleared because the county does not provide for funding or cleaning all of them. Therefore do not expect them to be clear. YOU are responsible for transportation. We cannot provide any transportation for guests. Please remember you will be staying in the mountains where weather conditions can be very unpredictable and power outages, it is your responsibility to come fully prepared or purchase Travel Insurance. We DO NOT refund due to road conditions or power outages, bringing motorcycles or trailers without first checking with us to see if your cabin is accessible or the location of the properties on the mountains and their heights.

If you change or cancel less than the 30 day period you will forfeit your deposit that was charged when you made the reservation because not enough time was given for us to rebook the same cabin for same amount of days that were held.
