I made them put in that stuff about no pets.

Deposit Policy


First-time guests or those booking during an event (e.g., graduation, holidays, family weekend, etc) may be asked to provide credit card information to confirm their reservation. No charge is placed on the card except as provided in the cancellation policy.


Cancellation Policy


If you need to cancel your reservation within 14 days of your scheduled arrival,

we will make every attempt to rebook the room. However, if we are not able to do so, we reserve the right to charge one day’s rate to the credit card supplied during reservation. Cancellations within 5 days, if not rebooked, may incur a charge up

to one day’s rate plus $25 per day for each additional day.



Children over 10 are welcome, as long as they will respect our home and antiques, and are sensitive to the presence of our other guests.


Check-In and Check-Out


Guests generally check-in late afternoon or early evening. Let us know when you expect to arrive and we will arrange to be here to greet you.


Check-Out is 11am. You are welcome to leave your luggage here and

retrieve it later.




Smoking is not permitted inside our home, but you are free to smoke outside on the porch or patio.




We must ask that our guests not bring their pets.

We accept most major credit cards.
