Important Check in instructions:
We have a self check in process. When you arrive you will go to the office. Inside on the wall will be paperwork with your name on it. You will sign the slip and put it in the drop box located next to the counter. Attatched to your paper work will be a small business card with a 4 digit code, this code will open the lock box that is located next to your cabin door and inside is the key to your front door. On the counter in the office is a map of the property. Please locate your cabin and your assigned parking spot. PLEASE DO NOT PARK IN ANY OTHER SPOT OTHER THAN THE ONE FOR YOUR CABIN. 
When is Check-out Time? 10:00 AM. 
Do the cabins have air conditioning? Yes they all have an air conditioner. Silver Mt. #2 has central air. 
Do the cabins have heat? Yes. Silver Mt. #1 and #2 both share a thermostat that is set at a comfortable setting. In the other cabins, each room has its own thermostat that controls the electric heaters so you are able to adjust it to your own individual preference (Living room/kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms)
Are pets allowed? No pets allowed. If there are pets brought in you will be asked to leave and no refund will be due to you. 
Is there Wi-Fi? Yes, we have wireless Internet. However, we DO NOT guarantee that it will work all the time, it is spotty. Also, the cabin's proximity to the modem determines the signal strength. If Internet is necessary please look at these cabins: Mt. View Suite, Silver Mt. #2 and Silver Moon, as they have a better signal. Boulder Hill Barn, Coon Hollow and Silver Lining do not get great connection.
