Making a reservation at a bed and breakfast is not the same as making a hotel reservation. Due to our small size, cancellations affect us significantly. A last minute cancellation gives us little chance of re-booking a room. For this reason we uphold a strict cancellation policy:
• Guests are responsible for payment of all nights reserved regardless of their actual arrival or departure date.
• No-shows are responsible for full payment of their entire reservation.
• Should you cancel outside of 10 days prior to arrival, your deposit will be refunded, less a $30/room/night Administration/Re-booking fee.
• Cancellations (including changes) made 9 days or less prior to your scheduled arrival forfeit the 50% deposit and if the room is unable to be re-booked, the full reservation value will be charged to the credit card provided at the time of making the reservation. Any and all rescheduled reservations will require the full financial payment by the Guest, and the deposit is not transferrable to another stay. There are no exceptions to this policy including sickness, family emergencies, or weather related issues.
• • Individual guests within a group/whole house booking are subject to the terms defined for a whole house rental. If the number of rooms drops below five from a rental that originates as a whole house rental, the group’s reservation is still subject to the terms of a whole house booking.
30 DAYS NOTICE (or more) of Cancellation is Required for Refund of Deposit for These Circumstances (subject to Cancellation/Rebooking Fees):
• A group booking of two to four rooms.
• Reservations during the premium weekends listed above.
• Groups with Whole House Rentals require a 3 month notice for cancellation for a full deposit refund (less administrative fees per room). Cancellations before 30 days will forfeit their 50% deposit. Cancellations less than 30 days notice will be charged the entire cost of the reserved stay.
