FAQ

WHERE IS THIS HOUSE LOCATED?

Timber Hideaway is located in Old Fort. This home is approximately 20 minutes to Black Mountain, 25 minutes to Marion, and approximately 40 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?

Timber Hideaway is specified as "pet friendly" and 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?

Timber Hideaway 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 Timber Hideaway from our Old Fort Office. 

Timber Hideaway has a keyless entry system. You will receive a unique access code within 3 days of your arrival.

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 IS THE SECURITY DEPOSIT REFUNDED?

Security deposits are returned within 30 days of guest departure.

WILL THERE BE FIREWOOD AT THE HOUSE?

Timber Hideaway has a 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. 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. Absolutely NO fires are permitted outside unless the property is fitted with a fire ring/fire pit, which is not provided at Timber Hideaway. 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 Timber Hideaway. 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.

This was exactly what we were looking for; a beautiful cabin with all the amenities, fantastic view and close to hiking and Asheville. We had a couple of questions over the weekend and the staff responded immediately, they were great. We would definitely recommend this cabin to others.

The vacation rental was amazing. It was very clean and had a lot of supplies. The breathtaking view was wonderful. I only wish that the wood was covered with a tarp so that it would have been drier. The only other thing was the blinds were very thin so it was very bright in the bedrooms at 5:30-6am. But overall the property was very beautiful and I would definitely go back.
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Timber Hideaway is great! I'm glad you enjoyed the stay. Thanks for your feedback on the firewood and blinds.

This place was absolutely heaven on earth! The view from the back deck was breathtaking. The cabin was spotless and welcoming. We had homemade pumpkin bread on the kitchen counter waiting for us which was a special treat. It was just perfect and exactly what we needed to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. We will definitely go back again and stay longer. We found our “happy place”! It was perfect!

Sounds idyllic! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Everything was fine. Very secluded as stated even though close to road. You have to understand this is a gated community. We only saw one car pass the house all week. The house was very nice and warm feeling. The view from the deck was breathtaking. Very quiet and relaxing. The only thing that was an issue was the Apple TV. It recognized our Netflix account once but wouldn’t log in on future attempts. Gave up and watched dish tv. The house had everything that you would need. We did have a mix up on getting our card for the entrance to the community. You need to go into Old Fort to pick up you entrance card.
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
I'm glad you enjoyed the stay! Sorry for the mix up about the gate card. We have a new process and were working out the details and I apologize for the confusion. The process is much smoother now. Thanks for letting us know about the Apple TV - I'll report this to our team.

Great view, Clean and Comfortable !

Our vacation started the moment we stepped inside. The view of the mountains was wonderful. Couches very comfortable. Everything was very clean. Best appointed Kitchen of any rental we have experienced. The Ice and pumpkin bread greeting us was a nice touch. Local information wall helped us find outstanding food venues in Black Mountain.

Timber Hideaway is a great home and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay! Glad to hear that you were able to experience the wonderful restaurants in Black Mountain. - Greybeard Rentals

This cabin is secluded, clean, and comfortable. The house was well-stocked, and the management company put up Christmas lights and left us some locally made pumpkin bread as a gift. The view is beautiful--when it's too cold for outdoor activities, you can just hang out on the couch and view the Black Mountains. One suggestion: please provide trail maps! We kept reading that there were trails in the neighborhood, but without maps, we were unable to locate the trail heads. Local trail maps of popular hikes in the area would be helpful, as well.
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
I'm so glad you enjoyed the ambiance at Timber Hideaway! Thank you for your feedback about trail maps! This is a great suggestion. We will review with the team. Our Greybeard Rentals app our website also have some resources for area trails. We'd be happy to share this with you in the future.

We were looking forward to our annual relaxing Girls' weekend in the mountains & Timber Hideaway did not disappoint. The views were extraordinary & I remarked on more than one occasion that it was so quiet & peaceful you could actually hear the leaves falling from the trees! We did wish the house had cable to watch live TV but other than that would not have changed a thing! Well appointed & comfortable - enjoyed a roaring fire each night watching the sunset! Breathtaking & I cannot wait to bring my husband back for a romantic weekend.
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Wow, this sounds like you all had a wonderful time! Yes, cable can be challenging in some more secluded locations in the mountains, which is why it is stocked with Apple TV instead. Timber Hideaway is a great location to 'unplug' and enjoy nature and that beautiful home! Glad you had a nice time!
