Contact Information
Our mailing address is PO Box B, Ashford, WA 98304. Our phone number is 360-569-0516, or call 425-445-2419. Primary registered guest must be at least 25 years of age.

Agreement
Contract is between Big Creek Getaways, LLC and the acceptor of this contract, herein referred to as “Signer Guest”. Signer Guest is an adult over the age of 25 and WILL BE an occupant of the unit during the entire reserved period. The term “Guests” includes all of the occupants that are with the Signer Guest. Other occupants may be family members, friends or children under the Signer Guest’s direct supervision. Use of the premises is denied to persons not falling within these categories. If any Guests are disruptive or otherwise disturbing the peace, all Guests will have to vacate the property immediately without any refund of deposit or payment.

Cancellations And Refunds
Should the need arise to cancel your reservation, regardless of reason (including bad weather, power outages, electronics failure, illness, death, economic factors or other inconveniences outside of our control) there will be a $25 cancellation fee to cover administrative costs. The mountain cabins are on well-maintained county roads. Traction tires, chains and/or all-wheel drive may be required at times. Cancellation in excess of 30 days prior to scheduled occupancy will result in a refund less the $25 cancellation fee. All cancellations must be in writing (by mail, or email) and verified by phone.

Cancellation under 30 days prior to occupancy is non-refundable unless we are able to rebook the nights. If we can rebook the nights we will issue a full refund minus the $25 cancellation fee.

Changing dates is considered a cancellation. This is because booked dates are removed from our availability calendars and all inquiries are turned away and referred to other accommodations.

There are no refunds for late arrivals, or early departures for leaving the getaway due to mechanical failure of non-essential items.

We realize that unexpected events or last-minute emergencies can disrupt your travel plans. To prepare for these unforeseeable circumstances, some guests opt to purchase travel insurance which is available through a number of independent providers.
