Pets (Dogs only):
We are dog friendly! However, for a dog stay, you must provide a credit card for us to hold in case of a problem. Absolutely no pets of any kind are allowed on the Inn's grounds and premises with the exception of leashed dogs. All rooms allow dogs *except* the Master Room. Dogs must be leashed at all times when outside your room. This is very important. Dogs can frighten and bite people. Attention: you must assure that your dog is tick and flea free and provide proof of treatment. This is crucial. If the innkeepers judge that your dog(s) is not tick and flea-free or is not being handled in a satisfactory manner for any reason whatsoever you will be asked to leave without a refund of your entire reserved stay. You agree that the innkeepers may charge your credit card in any amount solely at their discretion for any damages or extra cleaning costs due to your dogs.
If you are traveling with a dog individually trained to do work or perform tasks for you directly related to your disability, please kindly inform us at booking. Please be advised that emotional support, therapy, comfort, or companion animals do not qualify as service animals.
A maximum extended stay is no more than 28 days, referred to as a "monthly rate". For weekly, bi-weekly, and monthly rates please contact the Inn. After a one-month stay, guests are required to vacant the Inn, along with all their belongings for at least one night before qualifying to book anew. We require a credit card and ID on file for each adult guest. Guests are responsible to pay for any damages or unusual cleaning. Only the original guests on the reservation are allowed to stay overnight in the room. Extra overnight guests can be accommodated on a case-by-case basis only with the owners' pre-approval/permission. A $40 overnight fee applies. Extended stays do not include breakfast.
