6. Why do I have to provide my photo ID?
We need to verify your identity to protect ourselves and our property against fraud. This is the same as providing photo ID when you stay at a hotel. Please rest assured that we will never share your information with any individual or organization. Your information is safe with us.
7. Do I need four-wheel drive for the Smokies area?
Four-wheel drive is highly recommended during winter due to steep roads in the area. Please check the weather and plan ahead. If it is going to snow during your stay and you don't have a four-wheel drive, you should consider renting one. Another option is using snow chains; however we don't recommend this as snow chains can't be used on regular roads. If some parts of the road has snow and some don't, you will have to keep putting the snow chain on and taking it off multiple times, which is extremely inconvenient.
