Minimum Stay

There is a five night minimum for all dates including Thanksgiving and Christmas. We will accept bookings of less than the minimum if your dates fit into our calendar. Most of the time we’re able to fit our guests into the small periods of availability we have and discount those nights if they are within a couple months of the date you contact us and book.


Cancellation notice must be received no less than 30 days before check in (60 days before Christmas and Thanksgiving holidays) to receive a full refund of all monies paid to date minus a cancellation fee of 20% or $400 whichever amount is greater. For cancellations within 30 days of arrival (60 days for holiday dates) for which your dates can be re-booked your deposit may be refunded minus the cancellation fee at the sole discretion of the owner. If your dates cannot be rebooked we’ll credit you for a future stay. Some guests like to purchase travel insurance to prevent any unforeseen problems spoiling their vacation. Sorry, no refunds for early departure.

Reservation Deposit

A reservation deposit totaling one half the cost of your stay is required to secure the reservation. Deposit must be received within one week of verbal or e-mailed confirmation to hold dates if not paid by credit card. Balance is due the 1st of the month thats 2 months prior to your month of arrival.
