RESERVATIONS: All reservations must be secured with an advance deposit of 25% of your total stay at the time of reservation. All deposits are non-refundable and are not held in escrow. For reservations made by credit card, the remaining 75% will be automatically charged to your card 7 days prior to your scheduled arrival date. If you want to use a different credit card for the final payment, you must contact our office prior to the balance due date. Personal checks can only be accepted if received, in our office, 30 days prior to your arrival.
CANCELLATIONS: If, for any reason, you need to reschedule your reservation, you must provide us with 14 days notice of any changes; otherwise you are responsible for the entire stay as booked. Cancellations with 14 days notice will be able to use their advance deposit on a future stay for 1 year. Cancellations with less than 14 days notice will forfeit their 25% advance deposit and any excess deposits can be refunded. Cancellations with less than 7 days notice will forfeit all deposits and be responsible for the entire stay and will receive no refunds. All changes to your reservation are subject to current rates, availability, and reservation rules in effect at the time of your new reservation. If you reschedule, your original deposit will be applied to your rescheduled arrival date and you must reschedule within 1 year of your original reservation date. Due to the nature of the resort business we are unable to refund for early check outs for any reason, including inclement weather.
WEATHER NOTICE: Due to the nature of the resort business we do not have refunds for weather or any other circumstance beyond our control. We recommend tire chains or 4 wheel drive vehicles for driving on our mountain roads during the winter months. We do not recommend arriving through the Great Smoky Mountain National Park using Hwy. 441 during the winter. Call 1-800-342-3258 for road conditions. We do not provide any transportation for guests, nor are we responsible for any towing charges you may incur during your stay.

DAMAGES: Failure to notify our office of any damages to your rental unit prior to checking out will result in your being charged for all damages. If you fail to notify our office of damages or fail to pay for the damages and they are in access of $250 it will result in a misdemeanor Arrest Warrant being issued for you. If they are in access of $1000 a felony Arrest Warrant will be issued for you. Please govern yourself and your guests accordingly.
FURNISHINGS & DESCRIPTIONS: Please do not rearrange the furniture, take any items outside that are part of the inter décor, or move any furnishing or kitchen items to another unit. The unit descriptions were correct at the time of printing, but subsequent renovations may have resulted in changes. Every effort has been made for accuracy on this website however if necessary BCNI may replace items with similar items.
EQUIPMENT & UTILITIES: In the event of a mechanical failure we will make every effort to have all reported malfunctions corrected as promptly as possible. BCNI will not be obligated to issue refunds in the event of failure or absence of any item provided it is repaired on a timely basis. No compensation will be given for temporary outage of electricity, gas, water, cable/satellite or telephone service. Outages will be reported immediately and all efforts will be made to have them restored as soon as possible. The operation and maintenance of these utilities is out of the control of BCNI.
MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY: Local fire codes have established maximums for all units. Please adhere to these maximums.
NO HOUSE PARTIES OF ANY KIND: If guests are found having a party in any of our units, everyone will be asked to immediately vacate the premises without a refund.

Please make sure you do not leave any personal items behind when departing; BCCR will not be held responsible for items left in the unit.
POOL PASSES: Some units will have pool access and will require you to have a pool pass in order to use the pool. Pool Passes and pool maps are available at our check-in office. We require that guests pay a $20.00 deposit to receive a pool pass. This deposit is returned to you once you have returned the pool pass to our office.
HOT TUB: Do Not use the hot tub if you are pregnant, have High Blood Pressure, have Diabetes, have any open wound or sore, or if you have health care concerns that are not addressed here. Children under 18 years should not use the hot tub. Do not use electrical equipment in or near hot tub.
DO NOT USE THE HOT TUB IF YOU ARE USING ALCOHOL OR ANY TYPE OF RECREATIONAL DRUG. Caution: Avoid Antihistamines, Anticoagulants, and Tranquilizers if using the Hot Tub. If you do not know how your prescription drug use will interact with Hot Tub use, you should call your health care professional for more information. Limit your time in a hot tub to 20 minutes or less at a time.
HOT TUB CHEMICALS: Hot tubs are emptied, cleaned, re-filled and treated with chemicals after each stay and will take several hours to reheat. There may be a strong chemical smell when lid is first opened; call if the odor persists. Shower before and after each hot tub use, because the chemicals may cause a skin irritation or rash. Do not wear street clothing in the hot tub – only wear bathing suits. The chemicals may fade bathing suits or discolor hair. Do not overload your hot tub with too many bathers, because it will overflow the hot tub and adversely affect the chemical balance. Allowing the hot tub to overflow may cause serious damage to the electronic controls and you will be held liable for it. Do not add anything to your hot tub such as Bath Oils, Bubble Bath or ANY type of Soap. These will change the chemical balance of your tub and may break hot tub machinery. If you do, you will be charged an extra $45 Clean Up Fee and any repair expenses. Do not use the hot tub if you have any questions about the quality of the water. Call 1-800-436-7811 and report your water conditions immediately.
FIREPLACES: Please be aware that we do not supply firewood and this is the guests’ responsibility. Many of our cabins have gas logs with timers. Please be cautious when using the fireplaces. Do Not operate the air conditioner and the fireplace(s) at the same time.
EMERGENCY NUMBER: Please call 911 first for ambulance, fire department or police department, and then call us as appropriate.
