FAQ

WHERE IS THIS HOUSE LOCATED?

Hemlock Lodge is located in Old Fort. This home is approximately 30 minutes to Black Mountain, 35 minutes to Marion, and approximately 50 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?

Hemlock Lodge 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?

Hemlock Lodge is located in a gated community. You must go to our Old Fort Office at 78 D Catawba Ave. to pick up your gate card. Driving directions to our Old Fort Office, along with access instructions will be sent out via email. Once you have picked up your gate card, you can proceed to the house. Please do not rely on GPS. We will provide you with driving directions to Hemlock Lodge from our Old Fort Office. Included in the driving directions, will be instructions on how to access the house.

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.

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

Hemlock Lodge has a wood burning and gas logs fireplace, and fire pit 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. 

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 Hemlock Lodge. 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.

First of all, Hemlock Lodge was absolutely perfect. Clean, spacious, ideal property, completely stocked with all linens and kitchen appliances, the yard was wonderful ,we totally enjoyed the fire pit every night and the ponds were definitely a big bonus. It was pristine upon our arrival, the pictures do NOT do it justice at all. I want to thank the owners of Hemlock Lodge for allowing us to share their beautiful cabin. It was more than we had hoped it would be.
Greybeard Rentals were wonderful people to deal with, especially Susan. They were quick to answer all questions and take care of all concerns,wonderful people to deal with.
My family and I thank you from the bottom of our heart for this wonderful family vacation that we were able to experience. It was absolutely wonderful!!!!!!
thank you, thank you, thank you.

We enjoyed everything about our stay. It was a beautiful, well maintained property. You can tell they really take care of property. The kids enjoyed swimming and fishing in the pond. The home was spacious and we never felt crammed. It had all the extras, such as surround sound, Netflix, many games for the kids, etc. the waterfall near house is easy to get to and beautiful. We got to admire a momma bear with her 4 cubs maybe 1/2 mile away. It's a bit of a hike to get to once in gateway mountain but you learn your way. It's almost all paved with just a little area not and tricky. I recommend checking in during daylight hours for sure!

Fantastic family vacation with Greybeard rentals.

Everything!!! Beautiful Cabin!! Lots of room for the whole family. Of all the cabins we have rented in the past (five), this one was the cleanest and most well stocked with all the necessities. We loved the area. Very secluded yet fairly close to all the activities.
