Cancellation Policies
: if your travel plans change and you must cancel your reservation, please call us at least 30 (thirty) days prior to your arrival date to cancel with a full refund less a $50.00 cancellation fee per room. If less than thirty (30 days but more than fourteen (14) days is given, a gift certificate in the amount of your deposit will be issued and may be used towards another visit within 6 months. Please note that some restrictions may apply when rebooking, such as minimum night stays. In the unlikely event that you must cancel with fourteen (14) days or less, please understand that we must ask you to take responsibility for your entire reservation. There is no refund for early departure. We always recommend travel insurance. Check out this website for travel insurance information:

Dates and Room Changes: Being a small Bed and Breakfast, cancellations affect us greatly, therefore before making your reservation we must ask you to acknowledge and abide by our policies concerning cancellation. NOTE: A room and/or date change is actually the cancellation of one reservation and the booking of a new one. If the original room is not re-booked, then the guest is responsible for the first reservation per our cancellation policy. Please consider investing in trip insurance if your stay with us is substantial or subject to change. This insurance is commonly available through most travel & insurance agents, AARP, AAA and online. Check out this site for complete travel insurance tips and comparative quotes.

Holiday reservations are non-refundable:
We are unable to refund reservations for Holiday weekends, Fourth of July week, Thanksgiving week, Christmas week, and New Years Eve packages. Please be 100% sure of your travel plans before making reservation. Again, we recommend travel insurance.

Single Night Stays: 
Due to COVID 19 and the extensive cleaning protocol set forth by the CDC we will not be accepting single night stays during our 2020 season.

Winter Cancellation Policy: Because winter weather can be unpredictable, we are extending the following winter cancellation policy to our guests. When the National Weather Service issues an (emergency travel only) advisory for our area due to bad weather, we will contact all guests who have a reservation booked with us for that night. You will then be given the option to cancel and receive a gift certificate in the full amount of your reservation so you can travel when the weather allows for safe travel again. Guests will be charged the full amount of the current reservation and will receive a gift certificate for that amount. This policy has the following restrictions.
1. Your gift certificate must be redeemed within 90 days of the original reservation.
2. If you must cancel the new reservation for any reason, other than winter weather as stated above, the gift certificate will become void and no further certificate will be issued. If a winter weather advisory in this area prevents you from being able to keep your reservation again, we will happily extend the certificate another 90 days.
3. The policy provision applies only to bad weather here in North Eastern Massachusetts. If the weather is bad where you are traveling from but fine here, unfortunately our regular cancellation policy will remain in effect. Please consider investing in trip insurance.
