A Note About Inclement Weather And/Or Trip Interruption:
As we all know, from time to time Mother Nature can serve up some interesting weather conditions that make traveling challenging! And, at times, there are personal circumstances that create situations requiring changes to travel plans. So, it’s best that we let you know now about what our policies and expectations are when such conditions or circumstances arise.
Please understand that your reservation is considered to be a “rain (or snow) or shine” commitment to us. This means that “crumby weather” is, in and of itself, not a sufficient reason to cancel without penalty. The same is true for unexpected personal situations. You are expected to fulfill the full responsibilities associated with your reservation regardless of weather conditions or other circumstances. We do not compromise regarding this policy.
If you have any concerns about meeting this obligation, we encourage you to consider purchasing trip insurance. It is inexpensive, can be purchased easily online and protects your interests during unexpected circumstances that effect your travel plans.
Group/Event Reservation Guarantees And Cancellations
For information on group reservations and cancellations, please refer to our “Events Guidelines” which will be distributed to you during the booking process. If you have questions, please contact Rick Bell at 828-633-1110.

Our office hours are from 10:00 am until 8:00 pm.
All room accounts will be settled during the check-in process. For reservations made on our website, the balance due after your deposit has been applied can be charged to the card on file or to another card of you choosing. For reservations made and paid for through one of our booking partners (Expedia, TripAdvisor, AirBnB, BedandBreakfast.com, etc.), we require that you provide a credit card to which any additional charges or fees (purchases, optional breakfast charges, pet fees, cleaning fees, etc.) that you may incur will be charged.

Late arrivals (after 7:00 pm) can be accommodated by appointment only, but you must call us at least 24 hours in advance to make the arrangements. Late arrivals without an appointment are subject to a $50.00 fee.

For the safety and comfort of our guests, smoking and/or vaping is not permitted in the Inn nor in the Cabins. Smoking and vaping are permitted on exterior porches ONLY.

Damages and Excessive Soiling
At Engadine, we know that accidents and coincidental circumstances sometimes result in damages to our property. In these situations, we understand and accept that there was no intent and, as a result, will repair or replace damaged or soiled items at no cost to our guests.
However, in circumstances where there is obvious neglect or malicious intent, we reserve the right to charge offending guests the expenses associated with making right the situation. Following are circumstances where this will be the case:
1. Towels- We ask that the white bath towels not be used to clean mud or dirt from shoes or clothing, removing blood, or for washing cars. Black wash cloths and hand towels are provided for removing makeup...please DO NOT use white bath towels or cloths for makeup removal. In our dog friendly cabins, "dog towels" are provided for wiping muddy paws. If you are planning to visit one of the area's famed "swimming holes," we ask that you NOT use bath towels and, instead, visit the Inn's office to pick up beach towels. For soiled towels that cannot be cleaned- $25 per item.
2. Bed linens- For bed linens soiled with make-up, personal products, blood (or muddy paws in pet-friendly cabins)- $25 per item
3. Excessive soiling of room or cabin resulting in extensive cleaning- $250

Cabin rates are based on double occupancy, unless otherwise stated in the cabin description. Additional guests can often be accommodated in cabins at an additional cost.($25 per person per day for additional guests 12 years of age and older…there is no charge for children under 12).
Our bed and breakfast Inn is reserved for adults only. Children of all ages are welcome in our five family-friendly cabins, however. Execption: The Cherokee Cabin is our luxury cabin and is reserved for two adults only.

Each room or cabin has a gas fireplace, wood burning fireplace or gas-fired stove. All fireplaces are operated seasonally from October 15 – March 15.
Cabins with wood burning fireplaces will be supplied with enough wood and fire starter for one fire per day of your stay. Our staff will lay the fire for you to light at your convenience. We ask that you NOT add additional logs or other combustible material to the fire(s) we will prepare for you. Additionally, wood burning fireplaces should not be lit on the morning of your scheduled check-out day.
