We don't smoke; so if you do, we ask that you only smoke outside.
***Please note our pet policy “If you are considering bringing a pet, we will only consider one small dog. No other pets please. We require that you email us a photo of your small dog for prior approval and if approved, renter’s insurance is required, about $40, plus a $25/day pet fee. Your pet must sleep in guest supplied crate. (Anyone with an unapproved pet may be asked to leave and forfeit their rental.)”
***Extra cleaning fees may apply if additional cleaning is necessary on your departure. ***
*** Note our Number of guest limit: 7 is the maximum number of guests for the posted rates. 2 more guests may be added for a $25/night each premium. 9 is the ABSOLUTE MAXIMUM number of all guests INCLUDING CHILDREN. If you end up with more than the contracted number of guests you will need to arrange alternate accommodations for them. If you need to accommodate more, contact LJ above and he will be glad to assist you in finding a second property or one with more room.
• Additional guests visitors: No extra overnight guests beyond our maximum of 7(9) total, (i.e. family reunions, wedding parties, holiday parties are not allowed.) A few (2-3) day only/non-overnight guests beyond the maximum would be acceptable.
If you exceed these limits, your stay will be subject to termination and forfeiture of your rental payments.
Sorry to be so strict but a few have taken advantage of us leading to our having to adopt these policies.
***A note about pricing: We get many inquiries, some are “bottom fishing” for the cheapest rate. If that is your objective, we are not for you. Our rates are posted here on our VRBO website, click “Rates” below photo. We have a very high quality special home that we offer on a limited basis for guest use. We feel we have priced it fairly for the quality of our property, location and the amenities we offer. If you are looking for the best VALUE, Flying Horse Lodge is worthy of your consideration. Listed prices are firm unless the dates you desire are open 10 days prior to the arrival date. Until your booking is confirmed, rates are subject to change without notice.
***(Note; Lake Burton is lowered ~8' yearly beginning Mid November or early Dec and back to full pool by April. This time is much more serene. There is still plenty to do, explore the shore (there's still lots of deep water), kayak, canoe, cozy up to a fire, roast marshmallos in the new fire pit. Nature is spectacular from occasional winter storms to snow once in a while. This is magical to experience but you will need a 4 wheel drive if it really snows!
