Cancellation Policy

Non-holidays: During most of the year, you may cancel your reservation with no penalty up to one day prior to arrival. Cancellations that occur within one day prior to check-in will result in a one night charge per guest to the credit card on file.

Holidays: Due to high demand during the holidays, we have a 10 day cancellation policy. Failure to cancel 10 days prior to arrival for holiday periods will result in a $100 charge to the credit card on file per guest. Reservations created within 10 days prior to check-in for holiday periods and subsequently cancelled also will result in a $100 charge to the credit card on file per guest. The cancellation policy is more stringent during holiday periods because we typically have to turn away potential customers during this time.
