Substitution of Accommodations: Due to unforeseen circumstances, a guest’s accommodation may need to be changed.  If at all possible, guests are consulted prior to arrival.  When a more expensive accommodation is substituted, guests are not responsible for the difference in price. If it is necessary to substitute a less expensive accommodation, the lower price will be charged.

Reservation Deposits: A deposit of 50 percent of the total reservation, including tax, and $200 refundable security deposit are required at the time of reservation. The remaining balance is due one month before arrival.  Checks are preferred, however, we also accept MasterCard, Visa, Discover and American Express. We require a credit card number to be kept on file for all reservations. 

Security Deposits:
 The required $200 security deposit is returned within two weeks of departure unless the cottage is damaged, left in poor condition, guests smoked inside the premises or they checked out late without prior permission.

Sleeper sofas, Playpens and Highchairs:  All cottages have a pull-out sofa in the living room. We also provide playpens and highchairs at no extra charge. Due to the risk of bedbugs, no sleeping bags or personal inflatable mattresses are allowed in our cottages.  Individual cottage maximum occupancies apply.
