The pet is not allowed on any furniture or bedding.  If pet hair is found on any of the furniture or bedding you will be billed a MINIMUM $100 additional cleaning fee.  If you leave the house without your pet it must be kept in a kennel or crate.  You will accept charges for any damages caused by the pet.

PAYMENT & CANCELLATIONS:
All stays must be paid in full thirty (30) days prior to check-in. Failure to pay balance by the date due can result in the cancellation of your reservation & a forfeit of the entire deposit. The balance can be paid by VISA, MC, DISC or a personal check or postal money order. The balance will automatically be charged to the card that we have on file on the due date unless we have received another form of payment. Once the balance has been paid you will not be issued a regund if you were to cancel your reservation for any reason. There will be no refund in the event of your early departure. All advance rent deposits, damage deposits, trip insurance payments & balance of rent due are deposited into a bank escrow clearing account. These deposits are considered income to Smoky Mountain Chalet Rentals (SMCR) upon receipt & may be used immediately.
