Lost revenue is hard to make up for a seasonal property such as ours. We have enacted the following cancellation policy to help ensure the customers who make reservations are serious about visiting us. Your understanding is appreciated.

Cancellation Policy

35% of the total of your reservation is due at time of booking as a non-refundable deposit.

This deposit is non-refundable regardless of notice given or the reason for canceling.

A motel credit will be given for reservations canceled with more than 3 days notice

For reservations canceled with less than 3 days notice, we will make our best effort to rebook the room.

  • If we can re rent the room, there will be no additional charges.

  • If we are unable to rebook the room, you will be charged the balance for your reservation. The reason for this is that we will have turned away other bookings in the time while we held the room for you and we did not have sufficient opportunity to re rent the room.

No shows will be charged the full rate.
