What Coronavirus/COVID-19 precautions are in place?

Here at Hot Springs Log Cabins we have always prided ourselves in the cleanliness of our cabins. Now is no exception! We have enhanced our cleaning protocols and always finish by disinfecting high touch surfaces with Lysol as we leave the cabin. For your protection, we have removed our colorful shams and decorative pillows. We have replaced all pillows (including at futon) with standard pillows with pillowcases. All kitchen and bath linens are completely changed when we prepare your cabin as they have always been.
We provide hand soap and toilet paper, but suggest our guests bring whatever wipes, disinfectant, hand sanitizer, etc., that they prefer. We also ask our guests to wash their hands frequently, and especially each time you enter the cabin.
Amy, Mike, and/or Lisa will personally and carefully prepare your cabin for you!

Do I have to interact with other humans to stay at Hot Springs Log Cabins?
Hot Springs Log Cabins are naturally set up for effortless social distancing! We have 5 cabins spread out over 11 acres with self-check in. You can bring yourselves and your groceries and never see another soul! Some people never leave the cabin, some venture as far as The Meadow for a game of frisbee or a glass of wine, others head out everyday for hikes. The town of Hot Springs is just 6 miles away if you wish to eat out or grab some souvenirs – although you will want to respect social distancing guidelines for the protection of both you and the local community.
We are committed to providing our guests with the opportunity to ESCAPE this crazy world in a safe and responsible manner!

Do you offer AAA or Military discounts?
Sorry, there are no additional discounts for AAA, teachers, military, etc., as we strive to keep all our pricing low. (We do not charge a cleaning fee or hot tub use fee as many do, and we do donate a portion of the pet fee [if you bring pets] to the local charity.)

We regret we do NOT have any other packages with area merchants (like the Biltmore) as we are simply too small to be able to negotiate any discount for you. We strive to provide you with more and better amenities than anyone else in our area.

Do you have any age restrictions for renters?
We welcome mature adults 18 years of age and older. We cannot allow anyone 17 or younger on the premises as per our insurance.
Can I bring my pets? Do I need flea/tick protection?

Please, bring your pet to any cabin (except The Oak)! The Paw Print features a fenced yard and The Holly features an outdoor kennel. All four pet friendly cabins have a “doggie gate” on the porch. You are not required to keep your pet on a leash, although your pet must be under your control at all times. We have a lovely Meadow that is for all our guests to enjoy, both human and canine! We normally allow two pets to come with you, but contact us if you wish to bring more than two pets and we’ll do our best to accommodate you for an additional pet fee to cover the extra cleaning.

Your $25 pet fee is a one-time fee that covers both of your pets for the entire length of their stay. $50 covers 3-4 pets with prior approval. Your ENTIRE PET FEE is DONATED to local spay and neuter programs. The animals thank you in advance!!!!!

You are required to have flea/tick protection on your pets. We have designed the cabins such that we can allow pets and also maintain our high cleanliness standards. They are also regularly treated by Terminex. However, flea and tick protection is required as we cannot control what your dog might encounter while using the bathroom outside or going for hikes with you. Nature here may have more insects than your urban/suburban dog normally encounters!

Do you have any breed or size restrictions for dogs?
We welcome dogs of all shapes and sizes! Dogs must be in sight and under your control at all times when outside at the cabins, unless they are enjoying the kennel or fenced yard. We normally allow two pets to come with you, but contact us if you wish to bring more than two pets and we’ll do our best to accommodate you for a small additional pet fee to cover the extra cleaning.
Can I stay for just one night?

We allow one night stays if only the one night is available, i.e. that night is stranded with no possibility of staying another night. Normal check-in (3PM or later) and check-out (by 11AM) times DO apply as we will be cleaning the cabin immediately prior to your arrival and immediately after your departure. No Saturday arrivals/departures -so a single Friday or Saturday night will never be offered.

How many people can our cabins accomodate?

We have designed our cabins to be a romantic couple’s retreat. Our maximum occupancy is 2 adults, no children, by Madison County ordinance. We cannot deviate from this so please do not ask us to do so. (The futon/couch does NOT fold out.)

We do NOT host groups or events to preserve our guests’ privacy. Only the two registered adults per cabin are allowed on the property – no “day visitors”.

Is your pricing per cabin or per person or per night?
Our pricing is per cabin per night for one to two people. Packages are per cabin for one to two people for the number of nights indicated.
Can I bring my children?

No, we are a retreat for couples only. Please look around the Hot Springs area for many larger group or family-sized cabins.

Don't you have any cabins for families?

No, we are for two adults only. We cannot accommodate groups. Please look around the Hot Springs area for many larger group or family-sized cabins.

How far apart are the cabins? Can groups book cabins? Can I have a wedding here?

The cabins are carefully placed on 11 acres with your privacy in mind. The closest cabins are several hundred feet apart and facing different directions. In summer, you will hardly see any of the other cabins. In winter, you may see the outline of another cabin, but no cabins are side-by-side or face-to-face.

We have limited parking and NO common areas for gatherings so we do NOT rent to groups or host weddings or other events. Only the two registered adult guests per cabin are allowed on the property (no daytime visitors). This preserves our quiet couples atmosphere that our guests expect when staying with us! Please look around the Hot Springs area for many larger group or family-sized cabins, and more suitable wedding locations. We are just cozy log cabins for two!

What is there to do in the area?
Where do we start? There’s great hiking at Max Patch, Rocky Bluff, and the AT, plus rafting and The Hot Springs Spa. Hot Springs has several excellent restaurants too. Please see our Area Info page for details. We also have a “concierge book” in each cabin with maps, brochures, and ideas for how to enjoy yourself in our gorgeous area.
How far are the cabins from Hot Springs?
We are six miles south of Hot Springs on gorgeous NC Highway 209.
How far are the cabins from Asheville and The Biltmore?
We are “about an hour” from Asheville, The Biltmore, Waynesville, and Cherokee. See our Directions page for maps of the area.
Do you have any brochures you could mail me?
Sorry, we do not have any printed materials or additional pictures as we have included everything on this website.
Do all the cabins have hot tubs? Where does the water come from and how hot is it?
Yes, each cabin has a private hot tub on the covered porch and they are open year round. (Especially enjoyable as snow flurries fall!) The hot tub water comes from our well. We rigorously maintain our hot tubs with bromine and proper filtration. And no, a swimsuit is NOT required! We set the hot tubs to 100 degrees although you are welcome to raise or lower the temperature. 104 degrees is the maximum temperature of our hot tubs (set by the manufacturer for health and safety reasons). We work hard to make sure your hot tub is ready and bubbling for you upon arrival as we know they are very important to our guests!
