CLEANING FEE DISCLAIMER: We are disenchanted that we have a pass-through cleaning fee so high these days but with everything going on in the country with higher costs and labor shortages, this is our new reality. We understand that when this fee is split by the large groups that is nominal per-person but we want you to know our hearts are that we wish it wasn’t so high regardless of that. It is a very large house to turn over in such a short amount of time and weekend help is extremely hard to find help. We only have 880 people that live here so we have to be the highest paid to retain the best and they are AWESOME! Conversely, we are pleased to remind you that we have so much included with this property. Unlimited firewood, propane for grill and gas fire pit, all the coffee supplies you need except coffee. All sweeteners, powdered creamer, filters and we have a selection of tea. We have spices and oils galore. You don’t need to bring trash bags or paper goods either. We stock enough for your entire stay, not just a starter amount. Bathroom and facial tissues, paper towels, trash bags, napkins, salt and pepper shakers, dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent, aluminum foil, assorted sizes of zip lock bags, plastic Saran-type wrap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, bar soap, Q-tips, cotton balls, filled hand soap dispensers throughout, kitchen sponges and Dawn dishwashing liquid. We have first aid kits. We have hospitality boxes with all sorts of things you and your guests may forget. There is a huge list of everything stocked for you if you would like us to send to you. Our guests have told us in reviews that all they need to bring is food and clothes. One last thing on cleaning: If you are going to check out on a weekday, please inquire if there will be a break in this fee. There is no way for us to separate it out so we would be happy to address on a case by case if you initiate. We are so thankful you are considering booking this AMAZING property. Humbly, Dave, Ann and our AMAZING Team

Cave rappelling is one of the most engaging and inspiring activities, but it also comes with a degree of risk. I remember my first cave rappelling adventure – I was quite young, and I really didn’t know what to expect because none of my friends had done it before either. We were at Laurel Caverns Park in Pennsylvania, and fortunately for us, the local guides were very patient and welcoming.
It's been over 50 years since a trio of young cousins left Fort Payne, Alabama, to spend the summer playing in a Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, bar called The Bowery. It took Randy Owen, Teddy Gentry and Jeff Cook six long years of tip jars and word of mouth to earn the major label deal they'd been dreaming of, but then seemingly no time at all to change the face of country music.
The Fort Payne Depot Museum (formerly the Alabama Great Southern Railroad Passenger Depot) is a historic building in Fort Payne, Alabama. The depot was built by the Alabama Great Southern Railroad in 1891, at the height of Fort Payne's mining-driven boom. Passenger service ended in 1970, but the depot continued to service freight until 1983. It was converted into a museum in 1986, which includes exhibits with 19th century and Native American artifacts, a collection of dioramas of fantasy scenes and historical events, and a former Norfolk Southern caboose.
