 Policies for Carolina Mountain Vacations Pet-Friendly Cabins
Guests will be required to sign the CMV Pet Policy at Check-In.

There are potential consequences for bringing an unauthorized pet onto any CMV property.


1.  For pet friendly cabins, there is a one time $45 non-refundable pet fee for each pet up to a max of 3 pets.  Any misrepresentation regarding the number of pets at the cabin will be charged accordingly.

2.  Pets are only permitted with prior approval.  Be sure to notify us if you are bringing a dog to one of our pet-friendly cabins. If prior approval has not been authorized and there is evidence of a pet having been at the property, the penalty may include a $200 charge, immediate removal of the pet and eviction from the cabin with the forfeiture of all rental payments.

3.  CMV only accepts well-behaved, housebroken dogs into our pet friendly cabins.  Even though we love all pets, we regret that we are unable to allow any animals other than dogs in our rental cabins.  Absolutely no cats are permitted in CMV rental cabins.  For the purpose of this agreement, the term “pet” is always used in reference to a dog. In the interest of protection your dog, a leash should always be used when your dog is outside.  While North Carolina does not have a state leash law, please note that cities and counties may have stricter regulations.  No dog shall be tied outside the Cabin unless supervised by a responsible adult

4.  As a general rule, dogs should not be left unattended in cabins.  In an unfamiliar environment dogs may act uncharacteristically and unpredictably.  They may get nervous and bark, causing a disturbance to neighbors.  Or they may harm the cabin by chewing, scratching or making messes that they would not typically make at home.  Please remember to be respectful of nearby neighbors.  Always use a crate in the rare event that a dog must be left alone.

5.  Legal Disclaimer:  Any damages to the cabin or cabin property or another person because of a pet will be the sole responsibility of the registered Guest.  Guests are held financially responsible for all physical damages to the Cabin (i.e. chewing, scratching, flea infestation, etc.) inflicted on the Cabin by the presence of a pet.  If extra cleaning is deemed reasonable due to the presence of a pet (i.e. soiled furniture and/or flooring, hair on furnishings or bedding, fleas), the Guest will be held financially responsible and the credit card on file will be charged for the amount of the repair/recovery.  CMV is not responsible for harm caused to any pet.
