Reservations and Cancellations
Sterling Springs Resort offers one of the most friendly reservation policies in the Smokies. Forty percent
of the total rent is required to make a confirmed reservation. Should you find it necessary to cancel your
reservation and you do so outside of 30 days from your arrival date, you will receive a refund for the deposit
made, minus a $100 cancellation fee. If the cancellation is done within 30 days of your arrival date, your
deposit will be forfeit. WE MUST BE NOTIFIED OF CANCELLATIONS VERBALLY AS WELL AS IN WRITING (you may mail,
e-mail, or fax the notification).
However, should you need to change your reservation, you may reschedule by changing your arrival date for up to one year out from your original arrival date by placing your deposit in escrow. This must be done at least 30 days in advance of your stay. For reservations changed within the 30 day period, deposits are forfeit unless we are able to replace the reservation with one of equal or greater value. If changes are made within 7 days of the scheduled arrival, guests are responsible for the amount of the entire stay unless we are able to replace it with a reservation of equal or greater value. No exceptions can be made to the cancellation policy for inclement weather, health related reasons, or family emergencies.
Certain seasons and holidays may have nightly minimum stay restrictions, which may not be applied to the online reservations system. In these cases, we reserve the right not accept those reservations. Under these circumstances, no deposit will be applied to the credit card provided. A direct call to the reservation office will verify confirmed reservation and deposit acceptance.
If you do not show up to your reservation and do not call, you will not get a refund.
In the rare case that the cabin you have booked has come off of our rental program we are not held liable. We will however give you another cabin of equal or greater value if one is available. If one is not available we will refund all of your deposit.
Sterling Springs Resort requires a 2-night minimum stay throughout the year. There is a 3-night minimum stay required for Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, New Years, and the month of October. For Thanksgiving and Christmas, there is a 4-night minimum.
Upon making your reservation, a deposit of 40% of the total will be taken in order to hold the reservation. The
remaining balance will be charged 7 days prior to arrival on the same credit card, unless otherwise notified by
the guest. If your reservation is made within 7 days or arrival, the entire balance will be due upon making the
