One can never predict the weather in the North Georgia Mountains. Generally the months of January & February are when we may experience inclement weather. Most of the roads to the cabins are paved with the exception of a few. It is recommended that you call ahead in January & February to see what weather & road conditions may be like. We will not be held responsible for any accidents you may incur. We will be happy to provide a towing company’s phone #. No refund will be made for inclement weather, we do offer the option to reschedule dates.
If the roads are paved to a particular cabin the description on that cabin page will note this, if not expect the road to be graveled/dirt. At any point & time if you have a choice of driving a SUV or low riding sports car we suggest you bring the SUV.

Why Are Your Rates Based on 4 Persons When The Cabin Sleeps More... Outside of the summer months & other peak time the majority of our rental cabins are booked for 2-4 guests. If we based the rental fee on the highest number a cabin will sleep we would be unfairly overcharging every rental with less than the maximum number of guests. We feel that it is fair to all to base the rental rates on 4 guest & charge a per person rate for each additional guest.
