A 50% deposit is required for all reservations of four nights or more. Reservations for three nights or less must be paid in full in advance. All balances due upon arrival are payable in cash or credit card only.

Cancellation Policy

It can be challenging to fill rooms after a cancellation because of our island location and our dependency on the ferry. Because of this, we enforce our cancellation policy and cannot make exceptions for any reasons including illness, missed ferry/plane.

We suggest investing in travel insurance such as that from Travel Guard which will reimburse your deposit in the event you need to cancel.

Deposits on cancellations made 14 or more days before the first day of your reservation will be refunded minus a 10% processing fee of the total amount of your reservation.

Reservations canceled between the 14th day and the day of your reservation are considered guaranteed and will be charged the entire amount of the value of your reservation. If the Inn can re-rent the room successfully for a portion of, or the entire length of your stay we will refund the portion of your stay we have re-rented, less a 10% cancellation fee. The value of the reservation on nights not re-booked is forfeited.

There is no refund for late arrivals or early departures unless we are able to re-book the room for those dates. If the room is re-booked, the value of the reservation for those dates will be returned minus a 10% processing fee. The only exception to this policy is if there is no ferry service for that entire day.

Should you book through an online booking service (such as you will need to cancel through that website. Any commissions charged by an online booking service for a canceled reservation not processed by that service will be deducted from your refund.
