RENTAL ACKNOWLEDGMENT: Guest acknowledges and understands that he (she) is a licensee of the Owner and not a tenant; and that he (she) is not acquiring any interest in the property. It is understood that each unit is privately owned including all furnishings, with ECVR acting solely as Agent for the Owner.

COMMUNICATION: It is a crime to obtain this rental property under false pretenses. Communication about a reservation, even after departure, must only be with the guest of record.

OCCUPANCY AND USE: Occupancy and use of premises shall not be such so as to disturb or offend neighbors or residents. These vacation homes were designed for individual and family use only. If a disruptive party or situation develops or is suspected, all guests will be asked to leave immediately without refund of payments or deposits. This policy is enforced without exception. The minimum age to reserve a one to three bedroom cabin is 21. The minimum age to reserve a four bedroom or larger cabin is 25. Cabin occupancy is determined by the number of guest over the age of 12 years old. Children, teenagers, and young adults MUST be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Sleeper sofas: A unit’s occupancy limit often includes the use of a sleeper sofa. Sleeper sofas are not recommended for adult use.

The Guest and Guest’s party are the only overnight guests allowed. The Guest will be held responsible for any violation of this Agreement, listed policies, ordinances, rules and regulations, and for any losses incurred by Agent or Owner or to the Property due to negligence or vandalism by any and all party(ies) or guests.

Any violation of this section will result in immediate ejection from the Property and forfeiture of all amounts paid. Weddings, receptions, and parties of any kind are not allowed without a written request and approval from Manager. Additional fees will be charged for events and vary per rental. In the event that Manager approves an event for Guest on the rental property, such approval shall not alter or materially modify the maximum occupancy limits for the rental property listed.

Under no circumstances will Fraternities and Sororities be allowed in any unit or cabin. Fraternities and Sororities will be asked to leave immediately without a refund of payments or deposits. ECVR hereby reserves the right to refuse service to anyone who they feel does not serve the best interests of the owner of the cabin. If it is discerned at check in that inappropriate behavior may transpire in the cabin or the guest is representing a group of individuals ECVR would otherwise not allow to check in, ECVR reserves the right to refuse service and no refund will be given. ECVR reserves the right to enter and inspect the property without notice or the guest being present.

RATES: Rates do NOT include: guest requested pool or hot tub cleanings, daily maid service, laundry, excessive cleaning (i.e. trash, upholstery or rug shampooing), sales, fees and accommodations taxes. All rates are subject to change.

PAYMENT: At the time of reservation, 50% of the gross rent will be charged to your credit card. The remaining 50% is automatically charged to your credit card 10 days prior to the date of your arrival. Reservations booked within 3 days of arrival must pay 50% upon booking and the balance will be charged at check-in. Guests that booked within 3 days of arrival must come to the office to check-in and pay the balance of their stay on a credit card processing machine. The same credit card used at time of booking must be used for balance payment at check-in. Guest of Record also must present a driver’s license at check-in that matches the name on credit card used for payment. ECVR does NOT accept personal checks. If the guest chooses to use a secondary credit card for payment, changes to credit card information must be made with an agent of ECVR. A processing fee to transfer charges from previously used card(s) to a card in the guest’s possession will be charged to the guest equal to 5% of each balance transfer and removal. Processing fees may be applied if a reservation is subsequently changed. Guest(s) must notify Eden Crest Vacation Rentals, Inc. at (800) 406-7404 of any discrepancies in the reservation immediately upon receiving the confirmation.

CANCELLATIONS: We cannot offer refunds under any circumstances. It is highly recommended but not required for guest to purchase travel insurance. All reservations, service package payments/deposits (i.e. wedding package, group package, romance package) are subject to a no refund policy. If notified 90 days prior to the event, ECVR may reschedule your event for anytime within the next year. We cannot offer refunds under any circumstances for any payments/deposits made toward a service package or reservation. Guest agrees to release any and all claims against Manager and its agents or affiliates. Cancellations, abandonment or early departure by the guest at the rental property for any reason (excluding mandatory evacuation) do not warrant any refund of rent to Guest.

CHECK IN/CHECK OUT: The Guest(s) understand and agree that check in time begins after 4:00 p.m. Every attempt is made to have cabins prepared for check in at that time, but access to the property is given only after the home has been cleaned and inspected. No one can pick up a key code except the renter, unless prior written consent has been received by ECVR. Check out time is no later than 10:00 a.m. Key codes will expire at check-out time automatically. An additional night’s stay will be charged for late checkouts.

All Guests will be emailed directions to the cabin and can access the door code from our smart phone app or ECVR will text the door code when the cabin is cleaned and inspected. ECVR use contract cleaners and they stand by their work. If you do not find the cabin cleaned to your satisfaction you must let us know within 1 hours of your arrival so that we can send the cleaners back to address any concerns. If you arrive after 8PM you may notify us that evening and we will send the cleaners back to the cabin at your earliest convenience the next morning. We do not offer refunds for cleanliness complaints because we stand by our work and will address any problems quickly and completely.

All Guests who arrive after our office closes and have not been reached during office hours to confirm receipt of directions and door code will be provided a map and key code to the cabin for pick up at the rental office located in the second cabin of the Eden Crest complex directly behind the real estate office on Wears Valley Road. There is a mailbox to the left of the front door which is where the packet of information will be obtained. Guests agree to abide by all guidelines given at check in.

USE OF THE PREMISES: Guest(s) understand they are solely responsible for any property damage, theft, accident, injury to any person(s) or loss sustained by any person, including loss of money, jewelry and other items of personal property, arising out of or in any way related to Guest(s) use of the premises and / or the items of personal property provided by ECVR on behalf of the owner at Guest(s) request. Guest(s) shall inspect and be familiar with proper use and application of such items in the home prior to using them.

Guest(s) hereby agrees to indemnify and hold ECVR and/or homeowner harmless from any and all claims including those of third parties, arising out of or in any way related to Guest(s) use of premises of the items of personal property provided therein. Guest(s) assumes the risk of injury or other losses relating to any recreational activities and will hold owner and its agents harmless with respect thereto.

ECVR requires a group leader and/or chaperone be present with a youth group at all times while they are at the cabin. At our discretion, we may require and arrange for a security service to patrol your cabin. We will attempt to notify you if this becomes necessary and your group will be charged for this service at $150.00 per night per cabin.

TAX-EXEMPT RESERVATIONS: A Tennessee tax-exempt certificate or 501c3 tax –exempt certificate must be provided by any group wishing to claim tax exemption. For these types of reservations, several criteria must be met: (1) The reservation must be made in a group name. (2) Payment must be made by a form of payment showing the group name (i.e. credit card issued in group name, check with the group name on the account, etc.) (3) The group name on the tax-exempt certificate must match all of the above. Request for tax-exemption must be made at the time of the booking. A valid tax-exempt certificate (as stated above) must be submitted to the rental agent at the time the signed Agreement is returned, which should be within 48 hours of making the reservation. Group payments may not be held in escrow.

DAMAGE/THEFT: Guest(s) agrees to leave the premises in a clean, undamaged condition. In consideration of a non-refundable damage waiver fee, guest will not be held responsible for reported unintentional damages which may occur to the property during the guest’s occupancy period, if the damages are reported in writing. A Damage Waiver is automatically applied to each guest when they book with Eden Crest Vacation Rentals. The fees vary depending on the size of the rental unit and cover up to $500 of unintentional damage. Unintentional damage does not include damages caused by a pet, drug or alcohol use or any intentional damage to the property and unauthorized entry into the owner`s supply closet. Guest accepts full responsibility for all pet damages, and intentional or reckless damages, which include damages while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, caused by any member of the party staying in or visiting the reserved cabin. Under no circumstance does this policy cover theft of the contents of the cabin in any form. If Eden Crest Vacation Rentals is required to pursue collection for any costs for damage(s) in excess of the damage waiver coverage or for theft and intentional damage in a court of law, reasonable attorney fees and court costs will be assessed to the guest of record with venue in Sevier County, TN.

ECVR reserves the right to require a damage deposit when ECVR management determines that the situation warrants it. The amount of the deposit will be determined by ECVR based on the situation. If damages exceed the deposit amount, the guest will be responsible for payment of charges in excess of the deposit. Guest hereby authorizes the Agent to charge any expenses related to repairing intentional or reckless damage, cleaning of the unit beyond normal wear and tear, or due to theft of any property from the unit to the Guest’(s) credit card on file. Should the Guest(s) dispute the charges or the credit limit on the credit card not be sufficient to cover the theft and/or repairs/cleaning required due to excessive use of the cabin, collection will be pursued in a court of law with jurisdiction in Sevier County TN.

FURNISHINGS: Please do not relocate or rearrange furniture or furnishing during your stay. Our vacation rentals are individually owned and furnished. Please do not rearrange the furniture, take any items outside that are part of the interior decor, move any furnishings from one room to another or into another unit. The guest will be charged if ECVR has to rearrange the furniture after your stay. The unit descriptions were correct at the time of printing but subsequent owner changes and renter wear and tear may have resulted in changes. Although every effort has been made for accuracy, ECVR is not responsible for errors, for property changes made by the owners, or for any conditions beyond our control upon arrival.

USAGE: In cases of accommodations with pools, Jacuzzi tubs and/or hot tubs, hammocks, swings, decks, elevators, basketball, volleyball, observation decks, gas and charcoal grills, etc. the Guest agrees to use such at their own risk and to hold the Owner/ECVR harmless from liability. Many resorts do not allow charcoal grills and as such Guest is not permitted to use charcoal except in designated approved areas. ECVR does not provide charcoal or fluid. Charcoal is not allowed on decks or porches. Charcoal cannot be used in gas grills. Use of charcoal in undesignated areas will cause the Guest to be held responsible for any and all damages.

Important Safety and Use Instructions:

1) WARNINGS: Persons using any medication or anyone with a medical condition including, but not limited to, obesity, heart disease, low or high blood pressure, thyroid disease, multiple sclerosis, diabetes or circulatory system problems should consult a physician before using the hot tub since the hot tub affects heart rate, blood pressure and circulation. Pregnant women and women who may possibly be pregnant, should not use the hot tub. Excessive water temperatures have a high potential for causing fetal damage during the early months of pregnancy. The use of alcohol or drugs in or around the tub and/or swimming pool is prohibited. The hot tub may cause lightheadedness and use of these substances may lead to unconsciousness with the possibility of drowning. Individuals using medications should consult their physician before using the hot tub since some medications may induce drowsiness, while other medications may affect heart rate, blood pressure and circulation. Hyperthermia (heat stroke) is a dangerous condition brought about by excessive heat. The symptoms include: sweating, dizziness, nausea, light-headed, convulsions, increased pulse rate, shallow breathing, possible unconsciousness. If you suspect hyperthermia, get medical help immediately.

2) Before each use of the hot tub, measure the water temperature. Water in the tub should never exceed 104 degrees. Water temperatures between 100 degrees and 104 degrees are considered safe for a healthy adult. Lower water temperatures are recommended for young children. If there are any problems with the hot tub and/or swimming pool, including any mechanical, electrical or chemical, please call the Manager immediately and do not enter the hot tub and/or swimming pool. Never use the hot tub and/or swimming pool alone. Do not permit children to use the hot tub and/or swimming pool unless they are closely supervised at all times. While the hot tub and/or pool are being serviced, we ask that you keep children and pets away from the hot tub and/or swimming pool area. Do not stay in the hot tub for extended periods of time. Set reasonable time limits (10 minutes is recommended for adults. 5 minutes maximum for children at a temperature lower than 100). Prolonged use of hot tubs beyond reasonable time limits or more than the recommended number of users in hot tub at one time can cause irritated skin, imbalance of chemicals and/or other injuries. The hot tub must always be left covered when not in use. This helps maintain temperatures and is also for the safety of your family and any children in the area. Read and follow any safety instructions and/or signs posted in the home and on/around the hot tub and/or swimming pool areas. Exercise extreme caution when entering or leaving the hot tub and/or pool. Be sure of secure footing before applying your full weight as water refraction can be misleading. Never use any soaps, oils or fragrance of any type in the hot tub and/or swimming pool. This could cause damage to the equipment and affect the chemical balance of the tub and/or pool, leading to a less enjoyable environment and a possible dangerous situation. Never remove the thermometer or floating chemical dispenser from the hot tub and/or pool. These must remain in constant contact with the water to provide the maximum amount of safety. Always shower before using the hot tub and/or swimming pool.

DANGER – Risk of Electric Shock. Do not permit any electrical appliance, such as a light, telephone, radio or television within 15 feet of the hot tub and/or swimming pool.

HOT TUB USAGE: Hot tubs will be inspected after each rental. If any items such as soaps, bath products, food, alcohol, etc. are found in the tub, the Guest will be charged a cleaning fee of $150.00. Damage to any cover will result in a $450.00 charge. Covers should remain on the hot tub at all times when not in use. No children under the age of 12 years old are permitted in the hot tubs. Guest agrees to follow the hot tub usage instructions posted at the hot tub. The bromine floater must remain in the hot tub at all times. If ECVR is required to drain and clean the hot tub during the reservation, there will be an additional charge to be determined by the circumstances. Guest(s) authorize ECVR to charge the credit card on file for any of the above charges. All hot tubs are drained, cleaned and refilled after every checkout. Guest is not to drain hot tub. Additional fees may apply. ECVR assumes no responsibility for any occurrence associated with the hot tub usage. Guest(s) with skin, ear, genital or other body infections, open sores or wounds should not use the hot tub due to the possibility of spreading infection.

POOL USAGE: Resort community and private in-cabin pools are to be used by registered guests only. No diving in the pool, horseplay around the pool, and no running in the pool area. NO glass or food of any kind is allowed in the pool area. Guests use the pool at their own risk. NO pets allowed in the pool or pool area.

MANAGEMENT ACCESS TO PROPERTY DURING YOUR STAY

Manager employees or vendors may arrive unannounced to conduct regularly scheduled services such as trash removal, pool services or HVAC filter inspection during your stay. Such services will require entry into the property for a brief period of time, even if you are away during their arrival.

PETS: Dogs are allowed only in designated pet-friendly cabins, subject to our pet policy. Our pet policy applies if a dog is present in the cabin at any time during a reservation.

Pet Friendly cabins do not require a pet fee or pet deposit for the first pet. However, all dogs and dog crates must be viewed by office personnel to insure that they meet our pet policy standards. If Eden Crest discovers or is informed that a pet has been staying at the cabin without having been viewed and approved by ECVR office personnel, the guest will be charged $100. All dogs and dog crates must be viewed by the office personnel for assessment by Eden Crest.

  1. No more than 2 dogs are allowed. If you are bringing 2 dogs you must register both dogs with us and pay a $50 non-refundable pet fee for the second dog. Management reserves the right to charge additional fees for approved larger dogs if an exception to pet size is permitted.
  2. There is a 30 pound maximum size limit. (Larger crate-trained dogs may be considered only on a case-by-case basis. Dogs that are not permitted under any circumstances include: Pit Bull, Rottweiler and Doberman.)

  8. Dogs are not permitted in swimming pool areas.
  9. Guest assumes all responsibility for any damages caused by pets brought to the property.
  10.

Grooming should include an anti-shedding treatment. If your pet is not on a monthly flea prevention program then the pet must be treated before you arrive at check in with us.

SMOKING: Smoking is not permitted inside any Eden Crest home. Evidence of smoking or smoking paraphernalia inside the property will result in immediate eviction and forfeiture of all amounts paid and will result in additional $500.00 Fee to Guest as Excess Damage Cost and will be charged against the credit card on file.

Guest also agrees to dispose of cigarette butts and other smoking paraphernalia in a safe and ecologically considerate manner. Cigarette butts cannot be disposed of in driveways, grass, or brush. They are a fire hazard. Cigarette butts, etc should be extinguished and disposed of in the trash.

WEAPONS AND DRUGS: Drugs, fireworks, and firearms are prohibited in all properties unless carried/held lawfully with proper prescriptions/permits/other legal documentation. Any fireworks, drugs, and/or weapons found will be reported to local law enforcement, who will recover such items and take possession. Airsoft (and similar) guns are prohibited in all properties at all times. Any evidence of the use of such a weapon will result in penalties up to $300. Additionally, any and all damage resulting from the discharge or use of ANY weapon or fireworks will be the full responsibility of the guest of record, and damages will be charged to the credit card on file.

ITEMS LEFT IN PROPERTY: ECVR will not be responsible for any personal items left in the property. ECVR is not responsible for accident or injury to Guests or for loss of money, jewelry or valuables of any kind. Although we are not responsible for items left behind, if requested we do make every effort to locate and return said items to Guest of record when notified that the item is lost or an item is discovered. Contact our office, and if lost item(s) are located, items will be sent USPS collect plus a $25 processing fee. Unclaimed items are periodically donated to local charities.

MALFUNCTIONS: We do not guarantee that utilities, appliances or amenities will not fail; but we do guarantee that repairs will be made as soon as possible.

Repair and maintenance problems must be brought to Manager’s attention within 12 hours of occupancy or occurrence, or Guest will be held liable for all such damages or repairs. Property manager has 48 hours from the time of notification by to cure any problems reported. Simply notifying the manager of a problem during the 48-hour period does not entitle the guest to any refunds whatsoever, nor the right to terminate this agreement. Property manager will make reasonable efforts to notify the HOA, if applicable, of any problems in common areas such as community swimming pools, but is in no way responsible to correct defects in these facilities.

Maintenance issues or defects in common areas or facilities do not entitle the guest to any refunds whatsoever, nor the right to terminate this agreement. Manager will not be responsible for any unauthorized expenses incurred by Guest or his/her guests. Costs of needless or unauthorized service will be charged as Excess Damage Cost against the credit card on file. Maintenance responsibilities are as follows:

Manager: Electricity, water, sewer, basic cable, and start up initial supplies

No refunds will be issued to guest(s) as compensation for self-cleaning of any area(s) in question. In the rare occasion there are any cleaning issues, Guest must contact ECVR within an hour of check-in so that cleaners may return to address any oversight. If Guest checks in after normal business hours the guest must contact ECVR by no later than 10AM the following morning. A cleaner will be dispatched to address concerns.

NO REFUNDS: In the event repairs cannot be made in a timely manner, we reserve the right to move the guest(s) to another available cabin. NO REFUNDS will be given for pool heating not reaching a specific temperature. If you choose to heat the pool, and because of inclement weather, including but not limited to rain, wind, cold temperatures or cloudiness, the desired temperature is not achieved, there will be no refund. NO REFUNDS or other compensation will be given due to any failures or malfunctions. NO REFUNDS or reduction in rent will be made for mechanical failures or malfunctions, interruption of utilities or other maintenance problems, including but not limited to: air conditioners, heaters, dishwashers, washers, dryers, TVs, DVDs, internet access, swimming pools, appliances or pest control. No rental adjustments or refunds will be made as a result of insect, reptile, animal or rodent conditions. Guest understands that they are visiting the Great Smoky Mountains which is a mountainous heavily treed national park and surrounding area. The eco-system is specifically designed as a home for animals, rodents and insects of which many are a protected species. If at any time insects or rodents become a nuisance please notify ECVR so that ECVR can minimize or eliminate the nuisance from within the rental home. Guest understands that they should not ever approach bears or other wild animals they may encounter. Guest agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Manager and the owner of the Property against all loss, damage, expense, and penalty arising from any action of the Guest or Guest’s party which causes injury or death to any person or damage to any property by insect, reptile, animal or rodent.

Internet access is an amenity provided by outside services, and not within ECVR’s control. Internet access can be spotty and slower than in city environments due to the necessity to use MIFI, radio waves or satellite. The mountains and trees can affect speed and service. Guests understand and agree that there are circumstances beyond the control of ECVR when there is a malfunction and that no recourse or action can be brought against ECVR for these circumstances which include but are not limited to: an in-home amenity malfunction, malfunction of plumbing or electrical, construction activity, failure of public utilities, amenities withdrawn by an owner/ HOA or other situations over which ECVR has no control. We provide after-hour services for emergencies only, such as lack of power, heat, air, water, accidents, and cabin lock-outs. If a malfunction is reported after checkout please do not expect to receive a refund. We respectfully request that the problem be reported immediately upon occurrence during your stay so that we can resolve any issues to insure your vacation experience is as enjoyable as possible.

If the property booked by the guest cannot be accessed due to snow, ice, or other acts of God, ECVR will not be held responsible and no refunds will be given due to these issues. These are acts of God over which ECVR has no control. During the winter season the guest should consider using a 4-wheel drive vehicle or chains depending on the location of the property they have selected to rent. ECVR will attempt to locate the guest in an alternate property until the roads make the original booked property accessible, at which time the guest must relocate to the original booked property. There will be a cleaning fee assessed to the guest for the occupancy of the alternate cabin during the time period the guest cannot reach the original booked property. ECVR will not reimburse for travel expenses related to acts of God. Travel Insurance is available and recommended but not required. ECVR is not at liberty to provide refunds under any circumstances.

SUBSTITUTION: In the event that the owner of the vacation home elects to remove his property from our management responsibility, we will transfer the reservation to comparable accommodations. If ECVR is unable to find alternate accommodations, then this agreement shall be cancelled and ECVR will refund all payments made by Guest under this agreement. No Refunds if alternate accommodations can be provided by ECVR.

NOISE ORDINANCE(S): The Property is located in a neighborhood which has a “noise ordinance” in effect after dark. All Guests agree to respect the Noise Ordinance and to use common sense in keeping noise volume low after dark. Any police enforcement actions by the City, County or Home/Condominium Association are at the sole risk and expense of the registered Guest and may result in Excess Damage Cost and/or immediate eviction and forfeiture of all amounts paid.

ACCESS TO PROPERTY FOR SHOWING: If Property is placed on the market for sale, Guest agrees to allow the Property to be shown to prospective buyer(s) upon reasonable notice of 24 hours or more to Guest. Property may be shown to prospective future guests in the same manner and upon such notice.

FALSIFIED RESERVATIONS: Any reservation obtained under false pretense will be subject to forfeiture of Reservation Deposit and Final Balance, if paid, and such party will not be permitted to check in and/or will be subject to immediate eviction with the forfeiture of all amounts paid.

FIREPLACE AND FIRE PITS: Many properties with fireplaces and Fire Pits are deactivated for safety concern even if showing on website photos. Guest agrees that use of the fireplace is neither condoned nor encouraged; any damages or injuries to Guest, Guest’s occupants, or third parties that result from such use are not the responsibility of the Owner/Manager and or its Agents. Guest further agrees that any such damages and/or injuries are the sole responsibility of the Guest.

PRIVACY STATEMENT: ECVR does not divulge a guest’s personal information to any third party without the guest’s expressed written consent.
