FAQ

WHERE IS THIS HOUSE LOCATED?

Mt Admiral's Retreat is located in Black Mountain. This home is approximately 10 minutes to downtown Black Mountain and 30 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?

Mt Admiral's 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?

You will pick up keys from our Black Mountain office, located at 204 East State Street. Keys will be available starting at 4:00 pm. If you are arriving after hours, you will receive instructions on how to access the safe on our front porch. There will be an envelope with your name and house name at the top. Your keys and driving directions will be inside the envelope.

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 ARE HOMES WITH GAS LOGS IN OPERATION?

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

Absolutely NO fires are permitted outside unless the property is fitted with a fire ring/fire pit. You cannot bring your own portable fire pit. 

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

Wifi is available at Mt Admiral's 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.

It was our 20th Wedding Anniversary and the Admirals Retreat was simply the Best. We couldn't have asked for a more cozy and romantic stay!

We love everything. Laurel ridge is a wonderful quiet community. The view at Mt. Admirals Retreat is simply amazing. The house is kept tidy, clutter free, and being there is a breath of fresh air. Jan and Dave are so friendly and welcoming, they're ready to help with any concern and overall we just couldn't be happier with our stay.

Great views and hospitality!

We had an amazing time on our quick weekend getaway to Mt Admirals Retreat. The home was spotless and had everything we needed. The highlight was the view of black mountain off the back patio we enjoyed with wine at the outdoor fire table. There was a small amount of snow on the ground which made the outdoor hot tub even nicer. Loved everything about this home, would come back in the future.

Our rental was perfect for a long 'weekend' to celebrate the New Year. Jan, the owner, was extremely friendly and helpful, and made us feel right at home. The rental featured everything we needed for the week plus more. We made use of the full-size kitchen on a daily basis and really enjoyed the private deck with hot tub. We were far enough out from town to feel secluded and private, while just a quick drive to Black Mountain or Asheville.

This place was our favorite AirBNB that we stayed in on our cross-country road trip. So cozy, romantic, relaxing, and beautiful, with thoughtful touches everywhere and excellent hosts who couldn't have given us a warmer welcome. The place was sparkling clean and the hot tub was perfection. We loved it so much we paid to stay an extra night! I am just especially grateful for AirBNB hosts who choose to keep their homes pet-friendly while still maintaining a clean and nice place to stay. It would be very easy to decide to prohibit pets in fear of damage, but many of us love to travel with our animals, and we still want to be able to stay in AirBNBs gems like this one. It makes us feel extra invested in showing respect for the home and cleaning up after our dog, so that these hosts continue to welcome four-legged guests :) Thank you again!

We loved everything about our stay! We spent a lot of time researching to find what we hoped would be a great cabin. The online photos of Mt. Admirals Retreat, while certainly nice and what sold us on the property, did not do it justice! It was absolutely spotless - the cleanest we've ever rented. The view is spectacular from the spacious deck which even includes a fire pit! The kitchen was well stocked with anything we could possibly need. Every detail was carefully thought out, down to the lovely smell and plush towels and robes for the hot tub. We expected a long drive to get anywhere, knowing this was in the mountains. We were completely surprised by the close proximity to downtown where we enjoyed dining at several lovely restaurants. We can't wait to return!

Admiral's Retreat a TREAT!

It was our honeymoon and my husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Mt. Admiral! Not only was the view off our back porch amazing, but it felt like home. I felt more comfortable and relaxed than I do when staying at a hotel. The home was very cozy and welcoming. The hot tub was a great feature that surprised us by being added after we booked! We even got to meet the home owners and they really did everything to make sure our stay was the most relaxed week we could have. They were so genuine and sweet and made our stay great. It was the perfect getaway home sit back and relax with a glass of wine!

Incredible!

Mt Admirals Retreat was such a breathtaking surprise! The view was spectacular topping off the incredible accommodations. Our family of three was looking for a last minute Thanksgiving getaway and we are so glad we found this place! The kitchen was fully stocked and allowed us to make a full Thanksgiving meal with ease. We only left the retreat twice, it just felt so comfortable and so much like home. We enjoyed the family hikes and truly loved looking at the mountains lit by the beautiful full moon on the deck by the gas fire pit. We had the pleasant experience of meeting the owners and they can only be described as gracious and accommodating. We are so thankful that we had the opportunity to make memories in such an incredible place.
