If you’re considering vacationing in the Great Smoky Mountains, it’s easy to find yourself feeling a little overwhelmed when it comes time to booking your accommodations. This area literally has hundreds and hundreds of choices in hotels, motels, bed and breakfast inns, condos, chalets and cabins.
Compared to hotels and motels, overnight rentals are a great choice for a multitude of reasons, such as being able to enjoy all the amenities and spacious luxuries of home, whether your preference is a private, secluded setting or a property that’s close to all the action. Once you’ve found a few chalets or cabins that are of serious interest to you, here are some questions you’ll want to ask:
Is the property professionally managed or rented by its owners?
Is a rental contract required?
Is a security deposit required? What’s the refund policy?
What’s the cancellation policy?
What are renters required to do before checking out?
Are fees charged for additional guests?
For further assistance in selecting a rental property, consider us the vacation rental source. We’ll be happy to provide you with all the information you’ll need.
