Rental Policy

Please note that some policies are specific to Cottage rentals.

Rates shown are for two people and are subject to change without notice. Quoted rates are guaranteed rates - and upon receipt of your deposit, a confirmation will be sent.

Cancellations: Inn Room refunds will be made on cancellations received 14 days prior to the reserved date. Cottage refunds will be made with 21 days prior notice. Deposits on cancellations with less than the required notice will be refunded only if the space is re-rented.  Moving an existing reservation to a future date is considered a cancellation.  Refunds are not available for late arrivals or early departures.  Reservations for a single night stay require a 100% deposit.  Reservations for groups booking 3 or more units (Inn Rooms and /or Cottages) for the same dates require a 100% deposit which is non-refundable (notification prior to the deadline is not honored).  A cancellation fee of $25 per room/cottage booked is subtracted from all refunds.

Cottage Guest Rates: Add $20 per night or $100 per week for each additional adult and $5 per night or $25 per week for each additional child (17 years and younger). There will be a charge of $40 per night for each "unexpected" guest.

Cottage Towels: Towels are now provided during a cottage stay. This service is provided upon check-in only. Please be aware that daily housekeeping service is not offered in our cottages. Kitchen towels are also provided.

Parking:  Free parking is available along the street in front of the property.  Only one space per Cottage and Inn room is available.  Guests who bring more than one car, boats and trailers are required to park these additional vehicles off the property.  Public parking is located just one block down the street.

Cottage Housekeeping: Cottages do not come with daily housekeeping service.  On rentals of more than one week, housekeeping is provided at the end of each week.
