A 50% deposit is required for stays of 5 or more nights
Large Groups: Due to limited staffing, we do not accept reservations for large groups traveling together, nor do we rent out the entire facility during the period May-October. Renting 3, or more rooms by the same group traveling together is considered a large group.
Check In: is between 4 pm and 8 pm. We encourage earlier arrivals after 11 a.m. on the scheduled arrival date and can accommodate late arrivals. However, because we are a small inn please make a request on the day of arrival. Arrivals after 8:00 pm will have a letter of welcome, with room keys enclosed, waiting at the front door of the Main Building.
Check Out: 11:00 a.m.
Cookies: Daily fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies, water, tea and coffee are always complimentary.
Smoking: Absolutely NO SMOKING is permitted inside the inn, or ANYWHERE on the grounds. THIS POLICY INCLUDES MARIJUANA CIGARETTES. We live in the forest and fire danger is high. Violators are subject to a $250 fine. Please don't force us to do this!!!
Pets: We are sorry but we cannot accommodate pets, or animals of any kind.
Breakfast: A full two-course hot breakfast is served to guests at the same time, (8 am) each morning. If you choose an activity in the park that requires an early departure before our regular breakfast is served, we can provide a light meal of granola, fruit and yogurt in the refrigerator in your room. We are a Bed and Breakfast not a hotel and therefore, do not have the ability to serve the full hot breakfast at varying times, nor is it served buffet style.
Miscellaneous: Absolutely no candles permitted in the inn, or anywhere on its grounds. Electric votive candles are available upon request from the inn for special occasions.
