EASY ACCESS TO NEIGHBORHOOD AND PROPERTY
The cabin is easily accessible through a wide, well-maintained paved road that winds up through the neighborhood. It does climb up a portion of a mountain so some areas are a bit steep-but there are no tight switchbacks. The last portion of the drive to reach our driveway requires you to exit the gated community & traverse a road that is a bit narrower: you will not be on it for long. We will give directions so that you don't drive on this narrower road the whole way up- coming through our gated neighborhood w/wider roads is scenic & a much easier drive!
Parking is on a paved surface- there is room for 4 vehicles.
Electronic front door lock • Check-in details sent the day before arrival
Gated community on Bluff Mountain, overlooking the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, just 3.5-12 miles to some of the favorite attractions in the area

BUGS, BEARS, CRITTERS, and WILDLIFE
Please be aware that we perform regular pest control, but given the location of the cabin, you may see or encounter wildlife while in the home or area, including/not limited to: birds, bees, wasps, bats, mosquitoes, spiders, snakes, fireflies, butterflies, beetles, lady bugs, ants, skunks, raccoons, black bears, etc. Wildlife encounters may happen: these are at your own risk & we are not liable to compensate you for encounters that occur during your stay. Bears are DANGEROUS. Be responsible and deter unwanted wildlife where possible by not leaving food, compost, or birdseed outside that attracts wildlife, insects & other pests. Put garbage outside ONLY in the bear-proof enclosures, & make sure it is closed. Lock car doors to prevent bear entry! Clean grill after use.
BUGS INSIDE HOME
In certain seasons, the climate does cause a lot of bugs. Be sure all doors & windows are kept closed. We perform regular pest maintenance, including bed bug preventative measures, but there is no perfect solution to keep a mountain home completely bug-free.
Electricity & internet services may get interrupted during storms and other issues beyond our control. Disruptions are rare & services usually resume after a couple of hours. No refunds for outages.
We rely on a septic system. Do not flush anything besides toilet paper in the toilets, even if it says it is "flushable".
Our mountain home relies on a well for water. We have an extensive whole-house water filter and water softening system, but occasionally well-water can have an odor or lead to mineral deposits in tubs etc. Well pump will not work during power outage.
Although it is rare for ice and snow to impact the roads, plan accordingly: obtain necessities in case you aren't able to easily navigate the roads & have all-wheel drive transportation. No refunds for inclement weather conditions.
