Plan Your Stay //

Policies

Reservations are made with a payment in advance.  Payments are refundable up until 14 days prior to your scheduled stay.  Within 14 days of your stay a refund may only be made if we are able to book the cabin you reserved for another guest.

Pets are allowed in Barb's, Tony's, Jack's and Annie's. Because our little four-legged friends leave behind memories of their presence, there is an additional pet fee of $25 per night for them. Please let us know when making your reservation if you plan to bring your pet.

If there are damages to the cabins or their furnishings during your stay, the cost of clean-up or repair will be applied to the credit card we have on file.

Check-in time is 4:00 pm and check-out is 11:00 am.  If you desire to check in earlier, or stay later, we may be able to accommodate your request based upon the schedule.  Please let us know in advance and we will do everything possible to accommodate you.

Please understand that the spring and fall seasons bring a natural influx of both ladybugs and stinkbugs to the Blue Ridge Mountains. Our cabins are professionally treated, regularly, by Orkin Pest Control to control all pests however, ladybugs and stinkbugs do not currently respond to these treatments.  We vacuum them up before you arrive and during your stay if requested; however we cannot guarantee that they will not be present at times in your cabin.  This is a natural event and we are fighting the forces of nature in trying to control them.

A hot tub is provided at Richard's Retreat for your enjoyment.  Please see the rules for your safety.  The tub is cleaned prior to the arrival of each guest and with normal use requires no additional cleaning.  Please take care to clean your feet and keep the tub free of leaves, grass and debris during your stay.  Excessive debris in the hot tub requires complete draining and re-filling of the tub at a cost of $100.  If this is required after your stay, the additional cost will be applied to your credit card on file.

The Blue Ridge Mountains is home for many types of wildlife.  While majority of this wildlife is harmless and beautiful, there are some species that are dangerous and/or poisonous.  By booking a reservation with us you are taking full responsibility for youself and any injuries that may occur while you are here in the Blue Ridge at The Cabins at Crabtree Falls.  Please be advised to stay away from large rocky areas, heavily grass and weed covered areas to avoid snakes.  There are black garden snakes, copperheads and rattlesnakes in the area.  DO NOT TRY TO KILL THE SNAKES, this is often how most people get bitten.  There are also bears in the Blue Ridge.  If you see a bear, do not turn away or run.  Make yourself as big and loud as you can and wave your arms and yell... this will frighten the bear away.  If you run, you may be attacked.  By booking your reservation with us you are agreeing that we are not responsible for any harm inflicted by wild life.  

There is NO CELL PHONE RECEPTION on the mountain.  There are no phones in individual cabins.  There is a phone available for use in the property manager's home that you may use when he is on the property.  The Priest View Internet Lounge is available for guest to connect to wifi and is located below Tony's Place.  Please plan accordingly.
