How do we get there? Can you give us a map to the cabin rental ahead of time?

We have Google Map showing the approximate location of the rental unit. Use links on the bottom of any page - Map to Office (PDF) with detailed directions. After we've had a chance to meet you, and done the paperwork, we'll give you a key and a detailed map leading you to your vacation home. We're sorry, but for your security we do not give out maps to the properties ahead of check-in. We have great respect for your privacy.

Do we need to clean vacation rental before we leave?

No and yes. You're not expected to do any actual "cleaning", but you are expected to leave the unit in a reasonable order, to gather and bag your trash and put it in the outside cans, and to wash your own dishes and put them away ... in other words, you don't need to clean it, just pick up your own mess!

Do you allow pets?

Dogs up to 25 lbs ONLY. Read our Pet-friendly rental policies.

How old do you have to be to rent from Mountain Rentals of Gatlinburg?

We will not rent to vacationing students or singles under 25 years of age unless accompanies by an adult or parent. No un-chaperoned groups.

What is your cancellation policy?

All cancellations or reservation changes incur a $75.00 fee, except for upgrading. If you must cancel your reservation within 30 days of your arrival, we cannot refund your advance payment of the total reservation amount, unless the unit is re-rented for the entire period and prepayment has cleared. Once your reservation is confirmed, any cancellations, changes of dates or switching of homes will invoke the cancellation policy.

What about cancellation due to circumstances beyond our control?

We cannot refund moneys due to circumstances beyond your or our control. We therefore suggest that if traveling during months of possible bad weather you consider purchasing a Travel Protection Plan. In order to cover all conditions, purchase must be made within 30 days of confirming your reservation. Call Toll FREE 1-877-563-9765. Note: This is not an insurance company.

What is a Travel Protection Plan and how can it protect me?

This pays for non-refundable payments and certain extra costs if your trip must be cancelled or interrupted for unforeseen injury, sickness, death, and various specific perils noted in the protection plan. Download Travel Protection Plan (PDF) - on the bottom of any page.

What happens if we need to cut our vacation short and leave early?

If you just up and leave early, no money will be refunded. If it is an emergency of some sort, please check the Travel Protection Plan (PDF).

Tell me about your properties. Aren't they all the same?

In a word, NO! We're not like a hotel/motel or condo complex, wherein all the units are the same, or there are just a few different models to choose from. All of our properties are owned by individuals like yourself (who have purchased them as vacation homes or investments), and the more than 280+ chalets and cabins we manage are as different as the individuals that own them. We have standard features that all units have in common, such as full kitchens, phones, air conditioning, etc., but the decor and feel of the properties are all distinctive and unique.
