For reservations made directly on our website or via phone, a first-night deposit plus lodging tax is required to secure your reservation and will be charged to the Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express card provided. If booking your reservation less than 14 days before your arrival, the entire reservation amount will be charged to your credit card. The remainder of your balance is due at check-in and can be paid by credit card or cash. Your reservation is not confirmed until your deposit has been successfully processed. An automatic confirmation will be sent by our reservation system to the email you provide.
A two night minimum stay is required, and holidays, special events, or weekends may include additional night requirements.
Only two guests per room with no exceptions. This is how our rooms are licensed and we cannot allow for additional beds, air mattresses, or children's bedding in the guest rooms.
In general we are an adults only BnB, and must be 21 years old or older to make a reservation. The only exception for allowing children during a stay is if a family rents out the entire house / all rooms. All guest names must be listed on the reservation for your safety in the event of an emergency.
Although we love animals, we cannot accommodate pets. Please call if you are looking for a recommendation to board your dog(s) locally.
Check-In & Check-Out
Check-ins are scheduled from 3 pm to 6 pm. Check-ins outside this time must be confirmed prior to your arrival.
We will text message or call you the day before your arrival to confirm your arrival time. If you are not sure of your arrival time or will be arriving later than 6 pm, we may provide you with the self check-in information if unable to be at the house when you arrive. It is rare that we can accommodate an early check-in, but we are always happy to store baggage. Please call to make these arrangements in advance.
Check-out is anytime before 11 am.
If you need to leave before breakfast is served or 8 am, please let us know when you arrive and we will be happy to prepare a bagged breakfast to take with you. A late check-out must be arranged in advance to assure there is ample time to prepare the room for guests arriving later that day.
Cancellations MUST be made by phone, not via email.
If your plans change after your reservation is confirmed and you booked directly through our website or via phone, cancellation notice is required 14 days prior to your arrival date.

The $50 cancellation fee also applies to changes in your arrival / departure date that result in a shorter stay. Reservations canceled less than 14 days prior to your arrival date will be charged in full.
