CANCELLATION POLICY - Note this policy is for direct booking thru MMIC. All other policies are denoted by the platform being used (VRBO/Airbnb, etc.) & all cancellations will be managed per their guidelines. We are a small business and cancellations impact us greatly. When we reserve a cabin for you, we turn away all other inquiries as we have agreed to hold that cabin for you.

In order to officially hold a reservation 50% of the total balance is due.  After booking - if the check-in date is at least 14 days away or cancel within 24 hours of booking, a refund can be made. A 10% fee may be deducted from the refund to cover processing fees & MMIC time/effort. No refunds for cancellations or changes made within 14 days of check-in. ​

DAMAGE DEPOSIT - A $125 hold will be placed on your credit card 15 days prior to your reservation and it will be released 3 days after checkout.

NO refunds may be given outside of the stated cancellation policy unless there is a mandatory evacuation or declared emergency by Union County officials for our area. Please check what travel insurance your credit card may offer. You can also visit to acquire travel insurance.
