GPS system accuracy varies - written directions will be provided prior to check-in. Weather may impact the ability to transit the 1 mile long driveway in the winter. Due to the higher elevation, snow can accumulate on the driveway. Following winter precipitation, 4WD is a must. Be prepared to use 4WD and maintain slow, steady speed to transit the driveway. During heavy snow, the driveway may be impassable. Regardless of the season, please drive slowly up the gravel driveway at 10 mph or less to help keep the gravel in place. It takes a lot of work to keep it in shape and anything over 15 mph quickly causes erosion.
We also share the driveway with other residences - to include kids, so please do not speed on the driveway.
We have a max overnight guest limit of 5, no exceptions. If your total overnight guest count is more than 5, we kindly request you seek larger, more suitable accommodations elsewhere on Airbnb.
House Rule #1: Relax! This is a weekend getaway - leave your stress at work. Enjoy your time away, but please respect our home and treat it gently, as we want to be able to continue to share it with others and of course, continue to enjoy it for ourselves when possible.
This is a 100% non-smoking home. No exceptions! If you choose to smoke outside, please be courteous and dispose of all cigarette butts - the grounds are clean and we prefer to "nurture" nature by keeping the yard and surrounding woods butt free.
Pets: Although we generally have a no pets policy, justifiable exceptions may be granted on a case by case basis for one small pet under 25 lbs. Multiple pets not considered. Guests must pre-approve pets with the host prior to booking. An additional pet deposit will apply. Service dogs are always welcome free of charge.
Septic: The home is on a septic system and as such, cannot handle waste commonly disposed of in city sewer systems. Please do not flush anything down the toilets other than toilet paper (no feminine hygiene products, paper towels, gum, etc). Please use the in-sink kitchen garbage disposal only for vegetable matter and plate rinsing; please throw all meat scraps, eggshells and any non-organic matter in the garbage.
Trash Collection: There is no garbage service or trash collection. Please place bagged trash (no loose trash) in the outside garbage bin located next to the garage. We always appreciate guests who opt take their bagged trash to the dumpsters at the Murat collection center on their way back to town.
Guest Limit: 5 We kindly ask that if you are visiting relative such as students at VMI or W&L and expect them to stay overnight, that they are counted toward your 5 guest limit. No exceptions.
Sorry, no open fires on the property.
