    Shared accommodations may not provide adequate privacy. Planning a family vacation--just one other family or couple? (Maybe your Mom and Dad or your wife's sister, hubby and kids.)    We encourage you to rent a separate Fourpeaks place for each family. That way we can be sure there is adequate privacy and living space for all our Fourpeaks guests. However, if separate accommodations are not available for your dates or if a shared occupancy works out best for you, that's all right with us. Prices will be higher than for Single or Double Occupancy. Please note that where accommodations are shared by another family we require contact information for the additional guests.

    Planning a Family Reunion.
    Where to stay.   Each of our attractive accommodations was designed with only one couple or family in mind. From our "just for two" places (New Camp, Wolf's Nest and Gypsy Camp) to Mom and Dad with up to six kids (Ridge Camp, The Cabin and Camp Barn). Your family get-together may require more than one of our places for housing. We invite you to look them over and see what you like. A key goal should be to select places that (taken together) offer exclusive use of a major portion of our Fourpeaks property. That insures total privacy for your family reunion.
    Here are some suggestions. Many more are possible. Please let us know your interests and we'll help.
