FAQ

WHERE IS THIS HOUSE LOCATED?

Mt Admiral's Retreat is located in Black Mountain within the private gated community of Laurel Ridge. Please note that this community restricts the use of ATVs and hiking on private property.

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.

WHEN IS THE SECURITY DEPOSIT REFUNDED?

Security deposits are returned within 30 days of guest departure.

WHAT IS YOUR PET POLICY AND FEE?

Mt Admiral's Retreat is specified as "pet friendly" but ONLY hypoallergenic dogs are allowed. Unfortunately, due to common allergy problems we cannot allow cats. For the privilege of bringing your dog, there is a minimum charge of $100 nonrefundable fee per pet. A maximum of two dogs are allowed unless you have received special permission from the property manager or homeowner. Any damage that may be caused by your pet during your stay will be paid for out of your security deposit or charged to the credit card we have on file. There is a county-wide leash law in place. When taking your dog outside of a gated area, please ensure that they are on a leash.

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 select option 1, 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. 

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.

First off the views are amazing! We want to come back in the summer when there's leaves on the trees and then in true fall for the foliage. The host had literally everything you could ever need for you, just start opening drawers and you'll find what you're looking for. The hot tub is nice and relaxing after a day of hiking. The hosts were super friendly but there was also plenty of privacy.

Wonderfully decorated cabin with a beautiful view of the mountains as you relax in the our door spa. There is a outdoor shower beside the hot tub so you can rinse off in some cold mountain water if you get too hot! Even with the upstairs being occupied by the owners you have total privacy.

Could not have been happier with our stay at Mt Admiral's!

The hosts were very hospitable and very easy to talk to. They assisted during possible inclement weather and had backup generators that allowed for ease of worry in the event that something happened. Great views and relaxing environment to get away for a short period. Plenty of entertainment within an easy drive, but still feels far enough away from hustle and bustle to relax. We will definitely be coming back when we get some more time.

If you're looking for a relaxing getaway in the mountains with a view and want to be away from it all but still close enough for comfort, THIS is the place for you! My girlfriend and I were raving about how awesome this place was all the way home. Spectacular views, beautifully designed space (architecturally and interior design), and extremely convenient in all aspects. Kitchen was modern, satellite TV, comfortable accommodations, and the amenities were on point. Spent most of our evenings eating dinner on the full table on the patio watching the sunset, reading a book in the oversized rocking chair by the firepit table, and wrapping up in the hot tub with the stars above us. Dave and Jan were awesome and gave us our privacy! Wonderful views, beautiful space, and exactly what we were looking for.

My boyfriend and I visited for a week getaway and loved every minute of it. As soon as we pulled up it felt like home. The cabin was so cozy and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The jacuzzi was fantastic as well as the indoor / outdoor fire places, the views were so breathtaking, I wish I could have spent the entire fall season there. <BR>We were able to meet the owner and she was so sweet and welcoming, she made us feel right at home. The kitchen was fantastic as we cooked most of our meals, especially breakfast and sat outside to enjoy the morning views.<BR>I think this is the best cabin/views in Black Mountian I miss it already!

This was a last minute honeymoon plan but it easily became my favorite vacation we've been on. It was beautiful and cozy, we woke up early just to watch the sun come up over the mountains and stayed up late to enjoy it going down and watching the beautiful sky. The pictures don't do it justice. It is breathtaking! Jan & Dave were so sweet and helpful! You can tell they really think about their guest. We loved everything about this property and the town. Such wonderful people and just all around good vibes! We'll be visiting again!

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!

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.
