Policies

Due to the size of our bed and breakfast, we require deposit at the time of reservation. Therefore, if your reservation is for one night, your credit card will be charged for one night room and related taxes and if your reservation is for longer than one night, your credit card will be charged for 50% of the total cost of your stay at the time of the reservation. Should you decide to depart earlier than your original departure date after you have arrived, you will be responsible for the entire stay unless we can resell your room at which time you will be refunded for the sold rooms.

Cancellations

Cancellations MUST BE MADE either online via our website or through email. A confirmation of cancellation will be sent to you. Cancellations made up to seven (7) days prior to arrival date will be eligible for the refund of deposit paid less $25 cancellation fee. For reservations made less than seven (7) days prior to arrival, we will do our best to re-sell the room and if successful your deposit will be refunded less $25 cancellation fee; otherwise the entire deposit will be forfeited. Should you decide to depart earlier than your original departure date, you will be responsible for your entire stay unless we can resell your room at which time you will be refunded for the sold room nights.
