FAQ

WHERE IS THIS HOUSE LOCATED?

Ruth's Retreat is located in Black Mountain. This home is about 7 minutes to downtown Black Mountain and approximately 25 minutes to Asheville. Click on the location tab above to locate this house on a map.

WHAT IS YOUR PET POLICY AND FEE?

Ruth'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 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 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?

Ruth's 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 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 Ruth'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.

The house was nice and spacious, our group of 6 fit very comfortably. It is very conveniently located to the town of Black Mountain (about a 10 minute drive to the nearest grocery store), it's also only about 20 minutes to downtown Asheville. Everything worked great and the home it came equipped with all that we we needed. The house was located in a neighborhood and wasn't as secluded as we had originally anticipated from the description. The street sign is small and easy to miss which made it difficult to find the property at first and certain GPS apps were unable to locate the home.

This is an amazing house

The house itself is very spacious and has great internet access. It has a great view of the mountains from the porch and is very close to the local shopping area in Black Mountain. We were able to find some great breakfast options just a few minutes away and had an easy drive into Asheville for some day trips. This is also an easy drive to Chimney Rock. We loved the house and the setup up, and we would love to come back again in the future.

Property was pleasant and a short distance from town.

The newly renovated house was a gift to our family and friends. Having four bedrooms (there's an extra one, folks!) with queen sized and twin-sized beds was helpful for our family. Also the location is awesome in that you are in the woods (why you go to Black Mountain, right?!) and conveniently located near town. The kitchen was also awesome!

A incredible home for a week getaway in western NC. Location is absolutely perfect and close to everything that we did, including hiking, restaurants, wineries, breweries and shopping. The staff at Greybeard Rentals is exceptional, with a special shout out to Emily. Ruth's Retreat is totally setup for a wonderful stay with everything you could possibly need. We are looking foward to our next visit to Black Mountain!!
