FAQ

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 a $75 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?

Three Winds 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 receive check-in instructions prior to your arrival with driving directions and key access information. You do not need to stop by our office to pick up your keys. You will 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.

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

Three Winds has a gas logs fireplace and outdoor wood burning 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. 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 Three Winds. 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.

We stayed at Three Winds for a week in early April with two small children (under 7). The home was clean, comfortable, plenty of space, gas fireplace, and great wrap-around deck with a large porch swing. The "neighborhood" is gated, very well maintained, and consists of relatively sparsely placed cabin-type homes. It was very peaceful and quiet. Despite a cabin directly next to Three Winds, still felt private. The community roads are narrow, very hilly, and winding, but pavement is in great condition. The community has some nice hiking trails (a bit steep, but still doable for small kids) leading to three small waterfalls-great for setting out your blanket for a picnic. There is also a small playground. Address is Black Mountain, but is a legitimate 25 min drive to town, so you will need to plan your day before heading out. Don't let that be a deterrent as the home is located in a good position to make fairly easy trips to Mt. Mitchell/Blue Ridge Parkway area to the north, Chimney Rock area to the south and everything in between. Our favorite "nearby" restaurants are Trailhead, Fresh (pizza), and Louise's Kitchen (breakfast/brunch). Activities (besides hiking and waterfalls) that are great for kids include Robert Lake Park in Montreat and gem mining in Chimney Rock (touristy, was skeptical at first, but kids had blast and would definitely do it again).
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Sounds like a wonderful stay! Yes, we totally agree! - Even though Three Winds includes a bit of a drive to Black Mountain, it's totally manageable and the home itself also offers some great privacy. Good picks for your favorite restaurants too -- those are some of the best! Would love to welcome you back.

Close to Black Mountain (25 minutes through winding roads), fast Internet, cozy, comfortable beds, all paved roads -- NO complaints!!! Hubby and I spent the week here with our two young children (ages 5 and 6), who loved walking up and down the stairs to the basement. Cute loft with two twin beds. Master extremely cozy, and large basement included a pool table and two day beds. Extremely well kept. Would come again!

Great! Yes, please do come back and stay with us again soon!

The development is much nicer than expected, and the house is very secluded. We loved the privacy.
The pool table is great fun for all.
It wasn't a problem, but one should know there is no garbage pick up at the house. Rented takes it down to Black Mt to GreyBeard office. Doable, but extra.

Glad you enjoyed the stay!

The house is very nice and perfect size for a romantic getaway. I chose this place because it had a screened porch and I was not disappointed. We enjoyed our time out there. Only suggestion -- add a few wine glasses to the kitchen and it will be perfect!

Thank you for the feedback about the wine glasses. I'm glad you were pleased with the romantic getaway at Three Winds - that's great to hear! Come back soon!

A great way to start the holiday season in a real log cabin! A little remote (wife), just remote enough (husband), and great WiFi (Kids). A wonderful property perfectly situated between Ashville and Chimney Rock/Lake Lure. The local waterfalls (in the basin below the cabin) were spectacular. We had a great time!

Everything was awesome. The staff contacted me with up to date information before I arrived and I had no problems finding the place or getting in. Sheets, linens, and property were neat and orderly. It's a dry county and kind of remote, so I advise stopping before you get there to stock up on supplies.
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
So glad you enjoyed it and that the process was smooth for you. Actually, Buncombe county, where Three Winds is located, isn't a dry only restriction I know of is that you can't purchase before noon on Sunday. Sorry for the inconvenience if that happened! We hope to welcome you back to stay with us here at Greybeard Rentals soon!

This little cabin in the woods was a wonderful way to spend a week. It is isolated from the hustle and bustle of the world. The one thing that my wife and I noticed on our first night there was the number of stars in the sky at night. Since we were so far from lights, we could see all of them. Another thing was when going to sleep at night, everything was pitch black. There was no light coming through the blinds or anything. The cabin itself was very clean and had all of the things you would need to stay the week. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and towels and sheets were provided.

We ended up only venturing to the Asheville area once, to go see the Biltmore estate. I would highly recommend going and seeing this wonderful site. It is a little pricey, but the experience was definitely worth it.

We did have one issue with maintenance. When we arrived, we had almost no water pressure and the hot water would go out after a couple minutes. We called the rental agency and when they opened, they called us and sent out a maintenance man. He found the filter for the tankless-hot water heater was full, so a simple replacement fixed our problem. Other than that, everything was great!
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Sorry again for the water pressure issue at the beginning of your stay. Thanks for letting us know so promptly so we could work to resolve the issue! We appreciate it. Glad you enjoyed your stay, and the visit to the Biltmore and we would enjoy having you back to visit at some point!

A very nice place to stay. Secluded yet close enough. All the amenities needed for a home away from home. The loft with the twin beds was a hit with two early teen girls as was the pool table. Comfortable beds.

The directions were a little confusing. But, we found the cabin and enjoyed our stay.

Would recommend The Straightaway Restaurant. Good atmosphere, fine food.
