Damage Waiver Fee

In lieu of a normal damage deposit there will be a Damage Waiver fee applied to each reservation based on the size of the cabin. The Damage Waiver covers up to $1,000.00 in ACCIDENTAL damages such as broken kitchenware, coffee pot etc. This does not cover non-accidental damage to furniture and electronics (i.e. damaged televisions, broken VCR/DVD, broken bed frames, broken sofa sleepers, etc). Guest will be responsible for all intentional or reckless damages and the credit card on file will be charged. Guest also authorizes our agent to charge any expenses relating to intentional or reckless damage, cleaning of the unit beyond a normal cabin clean (EX: heavy partying, trash, etc), or theft of any property from the unit, to the credit card on file for that cabin. The guest who uses their credit card for the deposit is considered the responsible party, and all necessary charges concerning the said cabin will be charged to the credit card on file, no matter who in the group caused the damage.

Unit Care

Please leave your unit in the condition you found it. A minimum fee of $100.00 will be charged if excessive cleaning is required.


All of our properties are non-smoking. Smoking is allowed on the outside decks only. There will be a $300 fine for smoking in the cabin.


Each reservation will be assessed a one time housekeeping fee based on the number of bedrooms.

Pet-Friendly Cabins

The properties with a paw print are “Pet Friendly”. Our policy allows for one dog (less than 50lbs) to accompany you for a $75.00 non-refundable fee. We require dog kennels/crates for those times when your dog is unaccompanied. Many of the areas’ attractions do not allow dogs. We reserve the right to assess additional cleaning charges as a result of any damages caused by your dog– we are serious about this as it affects future Stony Brook guests. We do not allow cats. We have crates available — cost is $20 for your stay.

Pets are welcome to come on your visit, but please keep in mind that they are allowed in front country campgrounds and beside roads as long as they are restrained at all times. Pets are not allowed on park trails, with the exception of the Gatlinburg and Oconauluftee River trails. Dogs on these trails must be leashed.
