Squirrel Run Log cabin is privately located on an easy gravel road only 2 miles from downtown Bryson City shops, restaurants and the Smoky Mtn Nat'l Park. The Cherokee indian outdoor drama "Unto these Hills" and the many cultural attractions are about 20 minutes up the road. If you want to get your heart really pumping; white water rafting on the Nantahala river is about 25 minutes down the scenic Great Smoky Mountain Expressway.

Squirrel Run is a cozy little cabin tucked away in the woods of the Great Smoky Mountains. The welcoming landscape draws you right in the front door, or down a couple of steps to the deck that leads you around the back side of the cabin. Peaceful and quiet, a comfortable space to sit at the small table and share a fresh cup of coffee in the morning air, sit close and cuddle on the porch swing, or kick back in the rocking chairs and unwind together. This covered deck also has a gas grill for making your famous mouth watering steaks. Should you prefer charcoal, that grill is located around the front. Also privately located here is a hot tub for setting the mood for a long romantic evening.

This romantic cabin for two sets the mood as soon as you step inside. Warm wood tones and woodland touches create a cozy and comfortable feeling. The openness of this floor plan makes sure you spend all your time together. The soft leather sofa sits in front of a gas log stove, and flat screen TV. Ideal for snuggling up together in front of a warm glowing fire and watching a favorite movie or satellite TV. The efficient kitchen is well equipped and you will find all you need for making dinner for two. A cozy table provides seating for a candlelight meal together. Across this room is the queen size bed with plush bedding. A full bath with tub is located privately off the bedroom.

Upon the successful charge to your card, you will receive a Reservation Confirmation email with invoice and this VRA, either in full or hyperlinked for download. 
  • BALANCE DUE 30 Days before Check-In: All guests are required to make payment in full of remaining balance before they are given directions to and lock box codes for property entry. Due date of final payment is determined by booking method and listed on invoice.

  • All reservations incur the following Fees:
    •  Rent set at a per night rate and unique to each property
    • Security Deposit or LDW guest must choose one option:
    • Departure Cleaning Fee, the amount of this fee will be set on a cabin by cabin basis.
    • Processing fee of 3% to cover merchant credit processing expense.
    • Applicable Taxes including State and Local
    • Pet Fee, if property is pet friendly and a pet is accompanying you on vacation,
      a non-refundable Pet Fee is required.
All Guest are required to Choose one option below:
We understand that accidents do happen after all we are all human. Though as unintentional as accidents are, there is a cost to rectify their results. We believe the Limited Damage Waiver is the most practical method for both our Guest and Property Owners alike to provide for those expenses.
  • Pruchase Limited Damage Waiver (LDW) is a one-time non-refundable fee waiving your financial responsibility for up to $1,000 of accidental, unintentional damage. The amount of the fee is specific to each property.

  • Provide Security Deposit: (As an option to purchasing LDW) Guest may choose to provide a refundable (less damages) security deposit of $600.00 on credit or debit card at check-in. Security deposit will be refunded once the property has been fully inspected upon guest’s departure and cleared of all damages. North Carolina Law allows 30 days from departure date to inspect for damages and billed to Guest’s account. If damages exceed the Security Deposit amount, tenant will be responsible for the entire amount and the remaining cost will be charged to the tenant’s card on file. Carolina Mountain Vacations will refund security deposit (minus before mentioned expenses if necessary) within 45 days of tenant departure in accordance with NC law.

 Policies for Carolina Mountain Vacations Pet-Friendly Cabins

A property is only deemed pet-friendly when prior approval has been arranged and non-refundable pet fee has been paid.  Should prior approval not have been obtained or if the requisite pet fee remains outstanding, the cabin will adhere to our Non-Pet Friendly policies, and corresponding penalties may be enforced

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

Policy for 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.  CMV only accepts well-behaved, housebroken dogs into our cabins designated as pet friendly.  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.

  • To bring a pet to a cabin listed as pet friendly, Guest must make arrangement to include pet(s) on reservation by indicating number of pets and pay a onetime non-refundable pet fee at time of booking or guest may contact office to include a pet on a reservation. Arrangement to bring pet must be made before date of scheduled arrival on reservation to activate pet friendly status of property.
  • If prior approval has not been authorized or pet fee has not been paid, the Not Pet Friendly Policy will apply to the property. If an unauthorized pet is found to be, reported to be or there is evidence of a pet having been at property, penalties will be enforced as described in the Not Pet Friendly policy.
  • Each property has a maximum number of pets permitted which is determined by the property owner but is never more than 2 pets. Having more than the authorized maximum number of pets at a cabin voids the Pet Friendly agreement and Not Pet friendly policy is enforced.
  • Any damages to the cabin or cabin property or another person by or because of a pet will be the sole responsibility of the registered Guest. Guests are held financially responsible for all physical damage 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. The limited damage waiver (if purchased) does not include damage from pets. 

General rules for pets when visiting.

  • In the interest of protecting 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.
  • Dogs should not be left unattended in cabins (they are on vacation to).  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.
  • Pets are not permitted on furniture or Bedding.

Policies for NOT Pet-Friendly Cabins

Pets NOT Permitted: Pets are permitted only in specifically labeled "Pet Friendly' cabins and only with prior approval. There are consequences for bringing an unauthorized pet onto any CMV managed rental property.

  • $2000 minimum fee: CMV will make an initial charge to card on file of $2000, To attempt to cover all the expenses listed below that are required to return leased property to the same condition that existed before tenants’ occupancy. Tenant remains liable for expenses that total in excess of initial fee.
  • Tenant Eviction: This Lease Agreement is deemed in breach and tenant forfeits all rental payments made. Pet and Tenant will be promptly evicted from property.
  • Specialized Cleaning Fee: Due to the presence of a pet at a non-pet friendly property, Specialized cleaning, air purifying and laundry services are required to return property back to a “Pet Free” rental property (i.e. soiled furniture and/or flooring, hair or dander on furnishings or bedding).
  • Pest control service Fee: Tenant will be billed for extra pest control services to mitigate the possibility or existence of a flea infestation to the interior of property.
  • Physical Damages Liability: Tenant is financially responsible for all physical damages to the property and contents within (For example : chewing furniture, scratching floors, doors or walls, fluid or soil presence and staining of rugs or carpeting, etc.) presumed caused by the presence of a pet.
