This policy deals with non-emergency and non-health related reasons for cancelling. In cases of emergencies or illness, please contact us as soon as possible to let us know of your need to cancel or your reasons to have not shown up for a reservation.
We have this policy in place due to the high number of overnight guest requests, our very limited accommodations, and a history of last-minute cancellations and no-shows. Thus, we ask that reservations not be made until one can firmly commit to one’s requested dates, so that other interested guests do not lose the chance to stay here.
