FAQ

WHAT IS YOUR REFUND/CANCELLATION POLICY?

If you need to cancel your reservation and the property you had reserved re-rents for the time which you had it reserved, you will be refunded all money you had paid minus a $75 cancellation fee. If you cancel and the property does not re-rent for your reserved dates, you will lose all money you have paid to that point. For this reason, we recommend that you purchase trip insurance . Please call 888-228-8008 before making a reservation if you have questions or concerns.

WHAT IS YOUR PET POLICY AND FEE?

Baker's Bluff is not listed as "pet friendly”. Please be respectful of those owners who, because of allergies or other personal reasons, have chosen not to allow any pets. If housekeeping notes that a pet was present in a non-pet friendly property during your visit, you will be charged a minimum of $600 to clean carpets, upholstered furniture and complete air purification measures. Bringing a pet to a house that is not pet-friendly without owner consent or permission from Greybeard is grounds for termination of the rental agreement without refund. If you must travel with your pet, please contact us for local boarding recommendations. More info about service animals and the ADA is available here.

WHAT ARE CHECK-IN/CHECK OUT TIMES?

Check-in time is 4pm and check out time is 10am. It is important that we adhere to these times, because there is a chance that someone else will be checking out/in before or after you and we need sufficient time to ready the house for the next renter. If you wish to check-in early, there is a $50 early check-in fee that can be added on to your reservation. Early check-in is only available if someone is not checking out on the morning of your arrival.

WHERE DO WE CHECK-IN/PICK UP KEYS?

You will receive check-in instructions prior to your arrival with driving directions and key access information. You do not need to stop by our office to pick up your keys. You will go straight to the house and check-in starting at 4pm. 

WHAT IF THERE IS AN EMERGENCY DURING OUR STAY?

If you are having a medical emergency, dial 911 from the phone in your rental home or cell phone.

We hope that your stay in the area will be relaxing and without incident, but should you need to get in touch with Greybeard, we have someone on call 24 hours a day. Just call our office at 828-669-1072 and dial extension 203, which will forward to the cell phone of the person on call. Please do not hesitate to call us if something needs immediate attention, but if your question or concern can wait, we ask that you call the office during normal office hours.

WHEN IS THE SECURITY DEPOSIT REFUNDED?

Security deposits are returned within 30 days of guest departure.

WILL THERE BE FIREWOOD AT THE HOUSE? WHEN ARE HOMES WITH GAS LOGS IN OPERATION?

Bakers Bluff has a gas logs fireplace and fire pit for guests to use. Gas logs are not in operation May through September due to the warmer summer months. 

Firewood is not supplied by Greybeard. Some houses will have a small supply of firewood for renter use; however, it is best to purchase your own small bundle of wood or Duraflame pressed logs at the local grocery store. Cutting branches, limbs or trees on the property is strictly prohibited. You can use limbs found on the ground. 

IS WIFI SERVICE INCLUDED WITH MY RENTAL RESERVATION? WILL I HAVE CELL PHONE SERVICE AT MY RENTAL?

Wifi is available at Bakers Bluff. Please note that Greybeard Rentals does not guarantee internet connectivity or speed. Each individual homeowner contracts directly with an internet service provider, and due to a variety of reasons, Greybeard does not guarantee service. Our Black Mountain and Asheville offices have wifi service available if needed.

Cell phone service is not guaranteed. You may check with your service provider to see if service is available.

Great cabin for an adult getaway. Suited two couples well for sunny, mountain mornings and evenings by the fire pit after a day of hiking, brewery hopping, and festival going. House supplied with linens and basic paper and cleaning products - bring extras if your stay is lengthy or you plan on lots of cooking.

Driveway is not for the faint of heart or for vehicles without some traction. One lane road is shared by about 10 houses over about 1/2 mile of winding mountain road. Plenty of room for parking and road in good repair.

Less than 30 minutes to Asheville, Chimney Rock, and Blue Ridge Parkway.

We throughly enjoyed our stay at Baker’s Bluff! The view alone was priceless! The 3/4 wrap around porch was perfect to sit and watch the changing leaves on the mountains, lake, and birds. We sat by the fire pit several times and appreciated the bundle of wood that was supplied for our use. The cabinks kitchen was supplied with everything we needed to cook our meals. The outside gas grill came in handy too. Getting to the cabin on the winding, narrow road was a bit scary the first time we drove it, but after a time or two we were used to it and added to the seclusion and privacy of the cabin. It would have been nice to have the laundry room inside the cabin as going outside through the garage was a little inconvenient but nice to have. We gave a four star rating due to the cabin needing to be painted inside and pressure washed and painted outside but was very clean inside otherwise. If you stay, bring your own garbage bags, bar soap, and dishwasher soap, as these basic items were not supplied.
While in the area, we explored downtown Asheville, Blue Ridge Parkway, Chimney Rock, Burnshirt Winery, and the many Apple Orchards in the area.

We stayed at Bakers Bluff for 3 days in late October. The cabin is absolutely beautiful! Huge deck, outdoor fire pit, and amazing views. It was well appointed with anything you might need to make your stay comfortable. (*Note - there is no washer/dryer available for use). Easy to get to - off the beaten a path a bit, but very convenient to Black Mountain, Asheville, Chimney Rock and Lake Lure. Road leading up to the house is very steep....4wd would definitely be needed in the winter. Would absolutely stay here again!
Manager response on 2016-11-16 - Response from Greybeard Rentals
I'm so glad you enjoyed the stay! Baker's Bluff is great. Thanks for your feedback and we will look forward to your return visit! Update: regarding your note about the washer and dryer: these actually are available in the garage and we included instructions on the info letter that you received that mentioned how to access this. So sorry for the confusion!

We rented Bakers Bluff while we were getting married at Looking Glass Falls in Brevard. The cabin could not have been more perfect. It was clean, spacious, and very romantic! The view off the deck was amazing and the well placed outdoor propane fireplaces made for wonderful fall evenings. Highly recommended for a family or a couple looking to get away but still be near a ton of fun stuff
