The number of Guests occupying a property is limited to the number stated on the lease agreement. These limits are strictly enforced. All homes are limited to families, couples or adults 22 years of age or older.

Check-in time is 4 p.m. Each home in the LLOYD PROPERTIES, LLC program must be readied for occupancy within a very short time frame. In many cases, homes require maintenance repairs or additional cleaning time. An arrival time at 4 p.m. allows us to ensure that homes are clean and ready for occupancy. Early check-in may be available, so please check with the property manager prior to your arrival if you wish to check in early.

All check-ins must first check in at Hilltop Cabin & Suites, 304 Whippoorwill Lane, Nashville, IN 47448 even if staying at Grandma Barnes (which is just a short drive away).

Charges to Guest's card may include, but are not limited to: damages over and above normal wear and tear, theft, excessive cleanup, unreturned keys, unauthorized late check-outs and unwarranted service calls. If a fee is charged, a letter or email will be sent to the Guest explaining the reason.
