House Rules

Our mission at Log Cabins At Jacobs Creek is to provide you, your family and/or friends with clean, comfortable, and safe overnight accommodations at competitive rates. And while we hope to be able to answer every phone call, whether it is for general reservation information or to address any concerns before, during or after your stay in a timely manner, as a small privately owned lodge (similar to a vacation home rental), we do not have around the clock staff and thus kindly and respectfully ask that you abide by the following rules to minimize disruption to the property and other guests during your stay. On most days, calls are answered between 9a and 10p and up to midnight on the weekends.

The following "house rules" are an attempt to ensure a fun, restful and memorable experience for all of our guests. Violators will be asked to immediately leave the premises without refunds.


  1. In case of a medical/life threatening emergency, please call 911.

    • Cozy cabin (1 queen size bed) => 2 people
    • Efficiency Cabin (1 king size bed) => 2 people (can add up to 2 children under the age of 5 with an additional $20/night fee per child)
    • 1-bedroom/1-bath cabin=> 4 people (can add up to 1 child under the age of 5 with an additional $20/nt. fee)
      • Upstairs (based on availability, can be either 2 queen beds or 1 king bed and 1 queen bed) or

    Linens, pillows, air mattresses, roll-away cots and/or sleeping bags for additional guests are not provided and are the sole responsibility of the guest.

  3. 3. A damage deposit of $250.00 per cabin is required, via placement of a temporary hold on your credit/debit card. A $25.00 administrative fee will apply if using a different card.

    No charges to your card on file will apply unless additional cleaning has to be done by the cleaning crew, violation of any of our house rules and/or for any damages to the cabin and/or its contents including but not limited to furniture, linens, bedspreads, mattress pads and mattresses. Should cost of damages exceed the $250.00 damage deposit, invoice will be presented and payment is expected within 10 days of invoice date, otherwise legal action may be taken in a court of law in Comal County.

  4. Please respect other guests at all times. The designated "quiet time" is between 12 midnight and 8 a.m. Any party not in compliance with the "quiet time" rule will forfeit the $250 damage deposit and your reservation is subject to early termination without refunds of any pre-paid funds. If you wish to continue group conversations past midnight, we ask that you gather by the courtyard picnic tables (or bring conversation to whisper level), do not hang out on back porches as noise travels to cabin below/above or next to you and avoid slamming doors. Please be mindful of your neighbor cabin guests if arriving late, leaving early (or going fishing/to play golf, etc.) or upon returning from a concert.
    If this comes across as offensive or rude or if you are coming to Canyon Lake TO PARTY YOUR BRAINS OUT, PLEASE FIND ANOTHER PLACE TO STAY!!!

  5. If guests in the cabin above/below or next to you are being disruptive past midnight, please attempt to politely bring it to the attention of those guests and if disruptive behavior continues after such attempt, please contact our office or the local Comal County Sheriff's Office. After hours office number will be posted in the cabin.

  6. Reservations will not be made to minors and cabin occupancy must include at least one adult. No camping or occupation of RVs or campers is allowed on premises.

  7. In the event that your travel plans change and you must cancel your reservation, we will make every effort to book the unit/s to other interested guests and issue you a credit towards a future stay with a $50 rebooking fee per unit. Use of future funds must be by 8/31/16 and on non-holiday weekends. However, in the event that you are unable to travel by 8/31/16, a refund will be issued and $50 cancellation fee per cabin will apply. Additionally, a 4% payment processing fee of the original reservation amount will apply. Based on our pavilion building project, an extension may be granted as we get closer to Labor Day weekend.
