Should you need to cancel for any reason (health, work, schedules, weather, etc.), all but $35 of the cancellation fee will be refunded ONLY if your room is re-rented. To prevent paying the cancellation fee, we suggest you purchase travel insurance. Companies such as Travel Guard and Travel Insured Intl offer various plans including ‘cancel for any reason’ policies for a small fee (5-8% of your reservation). See Cancellation Policy below.

Early Departures: There are absolutely no refunds on early departures.

No-Show Policy: No-shows will be charged 100% of their stay.

Deposit: A $100 deposit will be charged to hold a room, which will be applied to your stay or cancellation fee.  The balance for your stay will be charged approximately one week in advance of your stay.

House Rules

v  The office is our home – please call 830.377.1725.

v  Unfortunately, we have had to implement service fees for non compliance. If you smoke in the room - bring a pet or a child into a “no pets/adult only” room - put dirty dishes into drying racks/cabinets, or leave the room excessively dirty: there will be a $150.00 cleaning fee charged to your credit card. NO EXCEPTIONS.  Also any damages will be charged to your credit card.

v  Guest Pets may roam free in their fenced yard (Retreat & Some Like it Hot), but must be on a leash outside of their yard.

v  The use of our property is for registered guests only. If you want to bring an unregistered guest onto the property you must call us at 830.377.1725 in advance to inform us.  There is a $10 per guest/per day fee.  You are responsible for all of your guests and any charges/damages that they incur.  All of your guest’s vehicles must be registered at 830.377.1725.  Your guest’s unregistered vehicles are subject to tow at your expense.

v  Upon arrival, please go directly to your room/cabin anytime after 4:00 pm.  Check out is by 11:00 am.  Other arrangements can be made, as long as there is advance notice given and we are able to accommodate. Fees will apply.

v  There are pool towels located in the painted can at the pool (Adults Only -18 YEARS + ONLY).  If you want to reuse your towel, please bring it back to your room or cabin; otherwise you may leave it on a table by the pool for collection.  No glass containers are allowed at the pool.  Pool is open for swimming from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend.

v  If you want to roam the property there are 23 acres with a large creek bed running down the middle.  If you are walking down a road and see a PVC Gate, please veer right down the clearing until you hit another fence line then veer right again; or you will be on someone else’s property.  Please realize that there are many drop-offs and it is very rocky and can be dangerous if you don't exercise caution.  Do this at your own risk.  Please do not take/destroy plant life or cross fences.

v   Between 10:00 pm and 8:00 am please keep the noise level down, as not to disturb others.

v  You are welcome to use the charcoal grills, but please clean up when you are done so that other guests may also enjoy. Each room is equipped with trash bags.

v  Breakfast is delivered between 8:20 – 8:45 am. We will come in daily to get your breakfast tray/breakfast dishes, towels & trash. If you leave your towels on the floor we will collect them; if you hang them up we will leave them.  If you don’t want to be disturbed, leave your tray/trash/towels outside by 10:00 am.
