Sunrise House Features

Check out our Mighty Sunrise House Features.

Once you arrive at our Mighty Sunrise cabin, you will likely want to dive in and use some of our amazing amenities! We’ve got you some tips on how to use our house features and appliances safely and effectively. Please take the time to read our Mighty Sunrise House Features, and be sure to enjoy your Great Smokies vacay!


  • Please check your Welcome email for the WiFi network and password.
  • If the internet is not working, double-check that you are on the correct network.
  • If you still cannot connect, unplug the router for 30 seconds and then plug it back in. 
  • Still having issues? Give us a call at (949) 649-3828 for some additional support.


  • It can take 24 to 48 hours for the refrigerator to cool all the food and other items stored inside. This is usually the case when it goes from being completely empty to being filled with a full load of groceries. This is also especially true if you add room-temperature liquid goods, like sodas and beer.
  • To help speed up the process, try putting your water bottles and freezer-friendly food into the freezer. Store them inside for 20 to 30 minutes to chill them. Then, transfer them back to the refrigerator.


  • Use only the dishwasher pods or liquid detergent in the dishwasher. DO NOT use regular dishwashing soap in the dishwasher.
  • Select your settings and press Start, and the display will say “Close the Door.” Once you close the door, the dishwasher will run. 


  • The washer and the dryer are in the kitchen closet next to the refrigerator. 
  • Do not stuff and overload the washing machine when using it. It may break the machine. And it doesn’t clean well when it is too crowded to allow full movement.
  • Do not add laundry soiled with solids and/or large particles. Before adding the laundry into the washing machine, rinse off as much of the solids and particles as possible. Do this in the bathtub or with the garden hose at the front of the house.
  • Only use laundry detergent intended for washing machines.
  • Clean out the dryer lint tray and discard all lint into the trash.

Heat & Air Conditioning

  • Main House: We normally set the temperature to 63 degrees on heat setting during the colder seasons. To change the temperature, just press the up or down arrows to the desired target temperature. NOTE that the cottage can get a little too warm if you set the temperature higher than 65 degrees.
  • Upstairs Bedrooms: Each bedroom has its own heating and cooling systems. To use, please refer to the instruction manual located in the top dresser drawers. Please turn off the units when you check out.
  • Game Shed: The game shed has its own heating and cooling system. To use, please refer to the instruction manual located in the drawer located to the right of the sink. Please turn off the unit when not in use.
  • Most, if not all, cabins in the Smokies are built with electric heat pumps that require the atmospheric air to be above 40 degree Fahrenheit to work properly. Under very rare circumstances, when the weather gets into the 30s or below, our heat pump may not be able to heat the home above the 50s. In the event that this happens, please use the emergency space heaters (in closets or dressers) or extra quilts and fleeces (if electrical power goes out) until our heating system starts operating again.


  • We do not supply the charcoal. You can buy charcoal at most local grocery stores.
  • Dispose of your coals once they have completely cooled off. Do not bag them or dispose of them if they are still hot.

Hot Tub

  • Call us if you have any questions regarding the operation of the hot tub. We normally set its temperature to 100 degrees.
  • Keep the hot tub covered and locked when not in use. Do not sit or stand on the hot tub cover. There is a list of safety rules posted next to the hot tub. Please read over these before entering the hot tub.
  • Maximum capacity is 4. Do not cause the hot tub to overflow as you will need to refill the hot tub with COLD water. If you do refill the tub, please DO NOT allow water to be sprayed on the walls or deck. Doing so will cause damage to the wood cabin.
  • Do not twist the jet valves OFF. Keep them half-open or half-closed.
  • Use the colored hot tub towels provided, NOT the white bath towels.
  • Do not use any glassware near or in the hot tub.
  • Do not add any substances, such as dish soap and bath salts, into the hot tub.
  • Rinse off before using the hot tub to avoid creating an oily film in the water. 
  • While the hot tub undergoes regular maintenance, incidents sometimes occur. If the hot tub or any of our other Mighty Sunrise house features is not working properly, please contact us ASAP so that we can fix the issue.

Fire Pit

  • We do not supply the wood. You can buy firewood at most local grocery stores and gas stations.
  • NEVER use the fire pit during windy conditions.
  • DO NOT use lighter fluid, gasoline, and/or any other flammable fluids to start the fire.
  • NEVER leave fire unattended. When finished, extinguish the fire completely with water until there’s no steam.
