  • Policies

    Smoking Policy

    All guest rooms, interior public spaces, and the front/rear porch of the Hill House B&B Inn are non-smoking. Smoking is permitted in the side yard and the porch of the Cottage. Receptacles are provided for cigarette ashes & butts. Guests are liable for a $300 cleaning fee for smoke odors in the rooms.

    Reservations/Deposits

    Reservations may be made by calling 855-447-0002 or 828-232-0345 & are confirmed at booking. Reservations are guaranteed with a valid credit card (Visa, MasterCard or Discover). A detailed confirmation will be emailed within 72 hours for guest review.

    For all stays, a one-night deposit is required. Deposits made with credit cards are due at time of booking a reservation. Deposits made with personal checks are due within five days of booking. All deposits are subject to standard cancellation policies. Balances are due upon check-in. In addition to credit cards, payment in cash, personal check or traveler's checks are also accepted.

    Cancellations

    Hill House is unlike most other inns and hotels. We will only take your deposit if we actually lose money, and that has not happened since the inn came under new ownershp in February 2012. For us to lose money if you cancel, (1) all rooms in your room's rate class must be booked and (2) we would not be able to rebook your room. Otherwise, we will refund your deposit and charge your credit card only a $35 processing fee.

    If both of those conditions are applicable, (1) for any cancellation at least 14 days prior to arrival, your deposit would still be returned minus the $35 processing fee; (2) cancellations 7 to 14 days prior to arrival would result in forfeiture of the deposit; (3) and if you cancel within 7 days of your arrival date, you will be charged for all nights reserved. Arrivals after the scheduled date and departures before the scheduled date fall within our cancellation policy.

    All cancellations must be in writing, preferably e-mail. The full amount of both processing fees and lost deposits/charges can be applied to new reservations. Reservations that are canceled because weather has closed area highways are fully refundable.

    Guests of the Inn

    Rates are based on two-person occupancy. There is a charge of $25 per person per day for additions to standard occupancy. Arrangements must be made in advance of arrival. Taxes are applied as required by law. We can accommodate children 6 and older in the Inn and children of any age in our Cottage. Please call for special details.

    Details, Details

    Check-in time is not that important, as long as we know about it. Guests can generally check in at any hour, as long as their room has been cleaned, and we know when to be looking for them. On a typical evening, except for Friday, we will have only one or two check-ins. We have a small staff, and cannot have someone sitting in the office all day. But if we know when you're coming, we can be there waiting for you. If you arrive and you don't see anyone, please call.

    Check-out is at 11:00 am on the morning of departure.

    Incoming telephone calls for guests are for emergency only. If you need to be reachable, please bring your cell phone with you.

    Once again, please note: All rooms, interior public spaces and the front and rear porch are non-smoking.

    Pets

    We allow only small dogs in the main Hill House building. They must be crated and quiet when guests are not in the room. Larger dogs are permitted in the Cottage, the Hideaway Gallery Suite, and the Pisgah Apartment. Because of guests' allergies, we unfortunately cannot accept cats. If a dog necessitates additional cleaning or causes damage to a room, an appropriate fee will be charged.
