What We Are Doing to Help Keep Our Guests and Staff Safe
Please note that we are following our normal cancellation policy as it reads below. NH is open for business and so are we. Should you have concerns pertaining to Covid-19 and feel uncertain, please consider our cancellation policy prior to booking. As a small business, it is challenging to navigate through cancellations and refunds at this time so consideration of our policies ahead of booking is helpful to both our guests and the Inn. We are happy to see everyone whether now, in the near future or sometime down the road, when this is all in the past. Thank you for your help and consideration in this very important matter.
Please Note – Due to staffing issues, at this time, we are offering limited guest room housekeeping services during your stay with us. Upon check-out each room will be strenuously cleaned, as always, for our next guests coming in. We will execute “In and Out’s” – this includes removing trash, replacing towels and replacing amenities, if needed. Should you require NO service, please place your “Do not Disturb” sign outside your door. Should you require FULL make-up service, please let an Innkeeper know. Thank you for your consideration as we navigate during this staffing concern.
We have always been committed to providing a clean and comfortable environment for our guests. Our team consistently engages in enhanced cleaning practices which are carried out in all guest rooms and throughout our common areas. Our food preparation and service practices follow ServSafe guidelines.
Our bed and breakfast rates range from $159.00 to $359.00 per evening and include afternoon refreshments and a full gourmet country breakfast for two. All rates are subject to the 8.5% NH rooms and meals tax. Room gratuities are at the guest’s discretion. A minimum stay of two nights is required during most weekends and foliage season. Some peak/holiday dates including Columbus Day weekends, New Year’s Eves, and Presidents’ Day weekends require a minimum three night stay. Please note that guests rooms are on three floors and the Inn does not have an elevator.
All reservations must be secured by a deposit equal to 50% of the reserved stay, with a minimum of one night’s room and tax. The advance deposit guarantees both the guest and the Inn the entire period is reserved. Confirmation letters are sent via e-mail or the postal service with every reservation; please note arrival and departure dates carefully. The deposit will be forfeited if guests do not arrive, arrive after the reserved date or depart before the final date of the confirmed reservation. All guests will be charged for full length of reserved stay once stay has begun. All cancellations incur a $25 administrative fee per room canceled. With at least 14 days notice, we will refund your deposit less the administrative fee. For reservations cancelled within 14 days of the arrival date there is no refund unless the room can be rebooked for the entire period of the stay (under the discretion of the owners).
Please note, we do not accommodate more than 2 people in any of our guest rooms. Also, we do not have roll-a-way beds or cots and we do not allow them to be brought in.
The Inn is primarily a romantic getaway and special occasion destination and not appropriate for children under twelve.
The Inn is not able to accommodate pets at this time. We can provide the name of places where your dog may board at night and join you during the day for hiking or other outdoor activities.
