Policies and Parking

General Policies


Reservations must be guaranteed with a major credit card. We accept VISA, MasterCard and American Express. Cash and Traveler’s Checks are also accepted forms of payment.

Minimum Stay

A two-night minimum stay is required. A one-night reservation MAY be possible depending on our availability. Please call to inquire.

Booking Fee

A booking fee of $50 is charged at the time you make your reservation. This amount will be credited to your invoice on arrival. In case of cancellation, this amount is non-refundable.


Notification of cancellation is required five (5) days prior to your scheduled day of arrival. Cancellation of your entire reservation, or any part of your reservation, after that date will result in a charge to your credit card for all the nights you cancel. If we are able to re-book your room, we will issue a refund on your credit card for the nights we are able to re-book. All cancellations will incur a $50 non-refundable booking fee.

Travel Insurance

There are many reasons a traveler might need to cancel a reservation at the last minute, including illness, family emergencies, flight changes and extreme weather.  As you are responsible for the full amount of your reservation once your cancellation date has passed, we strongly recommend that you purchase travel insurance to cover the financial risk associated with a late cancellation.

Breakfast Buffet

Your room rate includes a delicious buffet breakfast. The breakfast buffet features freshly cut fruit salad, organic honey yogurt, organic hard-boiled eggs, organic breads for toasting, and jams and jellies for spreading. We also offer hot and cold cereals, including our house-made granola, as well as fresh-made waffles or pancakes. Breakfast wouldn’t be breakfast without GREAT coffee! We also serve an assortment of teas and juices.

Breakfast is served from 7:30 – 9.30 AM Monday through Friday and 8:00 – 10:00 AM Saturday, Sunday and holidays.
