Dog Fees and Pet Policy
We charge a $75, one-time, non-refundable fee per dog (maximum of two). We do not accept other kinds of pets in our cabins. If we were not aware you were bringing a dog, you will be charged an additional fee of $100.
All dogs must be housebroken and friendly. They must be crated if left alone. You are responsible for damages. If your dog is allowed on your furniture at home, please either bring furniture covers or request furniture covers from us. If we find evidence that your pet was on our furniture without covers, we have the right to charge you an additional $50 cleaning fee to do a deeper clean before our next guests arrive. We do our best to make sure our future guests never know you or your dog(s) were in our cabin.
As a reminder, the State of Georgia has a leash law, and we fully enforce those restrictions on our property. Equally important, you are also responsible for picking up after your dogs.
During our wood burning season (October through March), we provide the first bundle (10 pieces) free. There is a charge of $10 (cash only) for every additional bundle requested. Please do not bring in your own wood in accordance with guidelines from the Georgia Department of Agriculture. This will help ensure the health of our property and neighboring forests.
Please make sure that you are opening the flue before you begin burning in the fireplace. If you do not know how to open the flue, we will be happy to show you. No fire should be left unattended. Thank you for your support regarding these safety measures.
Smoking, vaping or equivalent in our cabins is strictly prohibited. We provide a covered porch for such activities. We ask that you please keep our ground area clean and dispose of your cigarette buds in the container we provide on the covered porch. Please do not throw them over the porch railing.
