FAQ

WHERE IS THIS HOUSE LOCATED?

Cherokee Retreat is located in Black Mountain. This home is less than 5 minutes to downtown Black Mountain and 20 minutes to Asheville. Click on the location tab above to locate this house on a map.

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 an $89 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?

Cherokee Retreat is not “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 on 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?

Cherokee Retreat has a keyless entry system. You will receive a unique access code within 3 days of your arrival, allowing you to 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?

Cherokee Retreat has a wood burning and gas logs fireplace for guests to use. 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. If your rental home has an operable wood fireplace or wood stove, you can purchase our Guest Services Firewood Bundle package and have firewood and fire-starting materials awaiting you upon your arrival from October through the winter months. 

Cutting branches, limbs or trees on the property is strictly prohibited. You can use limbs found on the ground. Absolutely NO fires are permitted outside unless the property is fitted with a fire ring/fire pit, which is not provided at Cherokee Retreat. You cannot bring your own portable fire pit. 

Gas logs are not in operation May through September due to the warmer winter months.

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

Wifi is available at Cherokee Retreat. 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.

The house was great for our family, it was conveniently located to the town, you can walk there, it is a nice walk. We went to The Biltmore short 20 minute drive, very easy to get there.

This home is a great rental home. It has everything you need and much more. The screened in porch is a plus, when you are able to spend some time just relaxing and sitting on the porch and listening to the birds sing. Looks can be deceiving when you see the outside you think this could not be a spacious as it really is when you open the door and see the inside you are very surprised when you first arrive. We loved the fact that it is close to everything in Black Mountain and you have a lake very close by to walk around.

The home was more than I expected. I am more than pleased with the stay. My students enjoyed the individual rooms with separate bath. There was a washing and dryer, which we did not need. Everything was simply like having a home away from home. Shopping for food items is near by. The conference center was only minutes away. Trips to downtown took only a few minutes. It was great!!!!! Clean, comfortable bedding, heating no problem. I give everything about this home a 5, and will for sure seek to rent it again when the need arises.

Wonderful!Glad you were pleased in the stay and proximity to the conference center. We appreciate the 5-stars!

We enjoyed this rental and always have rented with Graybeard Rentals. There were a few things that could be improved. One is the televisions in the house. Definitely need flat screens instead of the old style, must have been at least 30 years old. The living room tv was so snowy you couldn't even watch it. It would have been nice to have a flat screen on the wall on the back porch and in the living room. During the Fall we love to watch college football. This expense for tv's is not something that couldn't be gained in rental fee. Also some of the kitchen supplies should be upgraded. Overall the house worked out well, nice location, easy to get to town. Dogs next door were always barking but that's what you deal with in town.
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Thanks for being a loyal customer of Greybeard! We appreciate it. Also - thank you for the feedback about the TVs and other suggested items for is good info for us to share with the homeowner. Look forward to next time!

We went to the Asheville area to celebrate my sister's 70th Birthday. What a great surprise the accommodations at Rhododendron Cottage were! This was really a shining star (and I was complimented many times for the "find")! This house is even prettier and much nicer than the photos show. The house is spacious and offers many different areas to gather in. The kitchen was well stocked, and we utilized the gas stove and cooktop as well as the dishwasher and the nice, large kitchen table. The only missing pieces in the kitchen that we noticed were ample hotpads and dish scrubbing supplies. We used the provided tablecloth and placemats and cloth napkins, a great idea on the owner's part. The living area is beautiful! We didn't use that fireplace, but we did light a fire in the fireplace located in the screened porch. That area was also very accommodating for our group! S'mores would've been fun.... The bedrooms and bathrooms worked out well for us all, but keep in mind the upstairs bedroom is better suited for kids than adults. It's such a lovely, well built, and obviously well loved home! The location was perfectly situated between Black Mountain's downtown and the nearby lake. We took many a walk around the lake and surrounding neighborhood, it's just so beautiful and serene. We would love to come back there, perhaps for the next "big" birthday!
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Wow, what a great reason for a celebration! I'm so glad you had an enjoyable time. Thanks for the feedback. Please do give us a call at Greybeard Rentals the next time you're celebrating a birthday!!

We had a wonderful time at our week-long stay at Rhododendron Cottage. Four adults and two kids (preschool and toddler) fit without feeling on top of each other. The screened-in porch gave us a great extra space for our one rainy day, and a place for the grownups when the kids slept. It was an easy walk to Tomahawk Lake trail, playground and pool, and a quick drive to everywhere else. Downtown Black Mountain was charming and had lots to offer in food and shops. The quick 20-min drive to Asheville was convenient and gave us 'bigger city' options for fun. We'll be back!
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Good! I'm happy to hear that you had plenty of room to spread out and enjoyed the proximity to downtown. We'll look forward to your return!

Beautiful home! Clean, comfortable. Quiet. Fully equipped kitchen. Rental agency was friendly, helpful and responsive to our needs. As a very nice touch, the rental agency left us a yummy pumpkin bread from a local bakery. There is a gas fireplace in the living room, but we couldn't figure out how to use it and were hesitant to fiddle with the gas lines. However, there is a wood burning fireplace outside on the screened in (very large) porch that was wonderful! Campfire wood was provided for our use and we simply collected some kindling pieces from the woods surrounding the home. Beds were very comfortable, especially the two full beds on the second floor. Having 3 bathrooms for 3 women was a great treat! Excellent location!
The town of Black Mountain itself has lots of unique shops and galleries. The corner hardware store, Town Hardware and General Store, with it's creaky wooden floors was a great place to visit - lots of nostalgia - sort of like a VT Country store catalog! The Merry Wine Market was another favorite stop as was the Mountain Nest Gallery. Be sure to stop at Kilwin's for some amazing ice cream! Be aware that many shops and restaurants are closed on Sundays and Mondays. Check before heading out.
We tried the Trailhead Restaurant and the Dark City Deli and were not disappointed. The food was freshly prepared, creative and delicious. Both places also provided a great selection of local craft beers.
Lake Tomahawk is just down the street from the cottage and provides a half mile loop trail. It's a great place to walk and enjoy the beautiful views of the mountains.
Asheville is about a 20 minute ride on I-40.
We were advised that our GPS might not work in the mountains but we had no problem at all.
We'd love to return here next year for another visit!

We loved the house. Easy walking distance to town and restaurants. The house is great, plenty of room and bathrooms for each bedroom, especially nice for a girls' weekend. We would stay there again. Dogs next door are a nuisance

We had a great time at this cottage. The house is beautiful and spacious. We had a total of 6 women over the weekend and everyone felt that they had more than enough room. The linens and beds were very nice and all of the rooms felt clean and crisp. The kitchen was stocked with supplies previous guests may have left which was helpful in surprising ways. We were greeted with fresh locally baked bread and toiletry items left by the host which provided a thoughtful and sweet welcome.

We arrived just hours before the snow storm. What a wonderful place to be snowed in...but actually we weren't! It's so close to Lake Tomahawk and to downtown Black Mountain, you can walk there and enjoy the beauty, even in the snow. The home is cozy, but certainly not small! The kitchen is well equipped with most everything you need. A gas stove!!! And a gas fireplace in the great room. A wood burning fireplace on the screened in porch, which we had hoped to use, but didn't. We enjoyed our stay immensely, despite the weather! Oh, one more thing. The big chair with ottoman by the tall windows in the great room is the perfect place to read early in the morning with a cup of hot coffee and a fire in the fireplace!
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
So glad you were able to enjoy the snow with us! Sounds like you had a cozy and enjoyable time - great to hear! Come back and stay with Greybeard again soon.

Great location for our family Christmas gathering.
Had all the amenities of Home. Loved the Fireplaces both in living area and on the beautiful porch. We enjoyed it Christmas Eve in 60 degree weather!
Home was in great condition and offered more than enough room for our whole family. Price was reasonable and location was convenient to both Black Mountain and Asheville. Will defintely consider it for a future stay.

Good! Yes, please do give Greybeard Rentals a call the next time you're in the area. We'd love to welcome you back to Rhododendron Cottage.

The rental experience was easy & positive. Both check in & check out was equally as positive & easy. The cottage layout was perfect for our family of 5. The woodburning fireplace on the screened in backporch was a fun experience. Black Mountain is a good, central location to visit & branch out to other mountain attractions.
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Great! Glad the process was smooth for you and you enjoyed making Black Mountain your "home-base" for adventures in the area. Come back and visit us soon.

We stayed a week and enjoyed every minute away from the heat and humidity of Florida! We had a chance to see the Christmas display at Biltmore Estate and it was lovely. The plants in the gardens were gone for the Fall, so that was a disappointment. We should have come one week earlier for peak leaf color.
This is the second time we have stayed in this Greybeard rental, and the staff is wonderful. We highly recommend Greybeard for anyone looking for a rental in the Black Mountain area. We are looking forward to our month long stay in August 2016. Thank you Renda for making our vacation so enjoyable!
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
I'm so glad you enjoyed the stay and visit at Biltmore. Call us anytime you're ready to escape the Florida heat again! We appreciate your feedback and compliments.

We saw this home last summer and immediately reserved it for our 2 week stay this year. What a wonderful, relaxing, vacation it was! This home is so inviting. The warm wood floors, the stone fireplace, big comfortable sofas, a cozy chair in the window alcove for reading in the evenings or watching the rain fall through the trees. When we come back in November, we will enjoy eating by the wood burning fire out on the screened porch in the cooler night air. The beds are very comfortable, plenty of linens and towels. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils and the rental staff leaves fresh pumpkin bread to welcome you. We enjoyed our stay and wish we could have stayed longer. But next summer we will be back for an entire month, and have a long list of places to go (My Fathers Pizza for great Italian food after a long ride on the Blue Ridge) and things to see (Arboretum, Tobacco Barn, Biltmore at Candlelight) as this house is so centrally located. The Greybeard staff is top-notch at customer service, thank you Renda! And a heartfelt 'thank you' to the owners for sharing their wonderful home in the woods at Lake Tomahawk!

Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Thank you very much for the compliments for our team at Greybeard - I will pass your note onto Renda as well! We're so glad you enjoyed the stay and we will look forward to welcoming you back in November.

Four girlfriends that have been traveling together for the last 25 years found this wonderful rental house in Black Mountain. It was spacious, clean and nicely decorated. The kitchen was well supplied with any kitchenware you might possibly need. Bring your own spices and condiments though.
We enjoyed a fire on the wonderful screened in porch since it was a little chilly while we where there and there is a nice gas fireplace in the living room for enjoying while indoors.
We would highly recommend Rhododendren Cottage to anyone traveling to the Black Mountain area.
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Excellent! Thank you for the solid recommendation and for letting us provide the accommodations for your getaway. Sounds like it was a great time!

We have stayed here in previous years and each year we feel that this home is like a home away from home. The location is well located and the home has been clean each time we have stayed. The house looks small from the outside but when you first walk in you realize that is not the case. Also we love the enclosed porch and was able to enjoy just sitting there and reading a book while listening to the birds sing. We also enjoyed a nice walk on the lake. We went to the Red Rocker Restaurant this year and the service and food was wonderful there also.

Overall, we were very pleased. Room for improvement follows:

1. There was no cupboard space in kitchen available for us to store our food. Many were filled with what we assumed was owner's food. Many drawers in bathrooms also contained what we assumed belonged to owners, leaving little/less space for us to "settle in". Upstairs bathroom had no room at all in cupboard.

2. Upon arrival there were only 2 bath towels for upstairs (no washcloths or hand towels). We did locate what we needed in downstairs bedroom closet. Some of the washcloths and handtowels appeared dirty/stained. We washed/bleached them and they came out nice.

3. Front main floor bedroom was very hot. A ceiling and/or free standing fan would make a big difference.

This is not meant to be a review for publishing but rather constructive feedback for owners. Thank you, Jane

Rhododendron cottage is located in a very pretty neighborhood, just a short walk from Lake Tomahawk which I enjoyed walking around, even in the rain. The cottage was very clean, comfortable and spacious. What really drew me to this cottage was the 2 full size sofas, plus the chair with foot rest in the living room. The master bedroom bed was very comfortable and the kitchen very well equipped. The only thing that was lacking was an ironing board. The cottage had an iron but I searched the whole cottage and could not find a board, which actually gave me a great excuse to walk around a little wrinkly!
