Policies

PAYMENTS

If the stay is for one to three nights, please send a check for the full amount. If it is for four nights or more please send a check for about half. Please send checks within 7 days. Any balance due is payable upon arrival. We take a credit card to hold, then we send a confirmation and directions, and have you send a check. For actual payment, we accept personal checks, cash, or traveler’s checks. We try not to take credit cards for actual payment. We’d rather give you a discount than the credit card folks.

DOGS

We take dogs of any size and you can have more than one in many cases. There is a $25 charge for the extra cleaning. They all MUST have current flea & tick medication.

The dogs must be on a leash except in their rooms. There is also a Town leash law. Dogs can go outside in the yard and there is an area where they can go to the bathroom. They can join you at Wine hour if they behave, but cannot join you at the breakfast table. There are tables on the back and side porches that you can bring breakfast out to and then you can eat with the dog. Rooms 9 & 10 have their own decks with a table. We have a whole handout on what to do with the pups we’ll give you when you get here. They all MUST have current flea & tick medication.
