Minimum Night Stays vary from week to week but generally are two nights off season weekends or three nights in high season weekends or festival weekends.

Pet Friendly Rooms are not available in the main house; however, we do have a couple available upon special request. Please do not invite your dog without telling us in advance and expect us to try to accommodate you. We only have two pet friendly rooms so please call the innkeeper to make your reservation and ask for a pet friendly room at the beginning of the conversation. We do not have pets ourselves and we make big efforts to keep the main Inn hypoallergenic for our other customers.

Room Rates are based on double occupancy on all our rooms and do not include taxes or gratuity. Apply $50 per person per night for additional guests over 2 people. There is a 17% charge for taxes and fees on all rooms reserved with a credit card. Please apply $50 for a room transfer. The Two Bedroom Suite rate is based on up to 6 people and Three Bedroom Suite rate is based on up to 10 people.

Group rates require a minimum 50% downpayment.

Children under 14 years old should be requested over the phone so we can find an appropriate room that fits your needs. We have families suites that work great but we want to make sure it is a good fit for our Inn as well. Please call us with your room request before booking online.

Check In is based on communication between the Innkeeper and the guest. We strive to make your arrival a satisfying and comfortable experience. In order to do that, we ask your cooperation notifying us 1-2 hours before you actually plan on being at our front door so we can have our staff ready to receive you. We are flexible and will accommodate you to the best of our ability to get you to your room.. We can accommodate for late night self-check in as well. If you forget to call, no worries, but we can not promise your room will be ready; as long as you are flexible, we will be too. :-)

Check Out is at 11 am

Outdoor Shoes are not permited in the house. Call us "neat freaks" or whatever you like but we work hard to clean the house. Let's face it, 80% of the world's people take their shoes off in their home so why wouldn't you do it in our home? Feel welcome to bring personal slippers or indoor shoes to maintain our historic floors and carpets. Not only will the historis floors last another 150 years but you will feel the energy of the house so you can slip right back in time.

Smoking is not permitted in the rooms or anywhere in the building. Lovely designated smoking areas can be found around the property though.

Payment and Cancellations. Your credit card number is taken but nothing will be charged until you arrive with the exception of "group", "house rental", "murder mystery" and "nonrefundable" reservations. We always prefer a check or cash for a payment though since we are a small business. Please note, reservations for Lucretia's Room, Issac Suite or Nellie Suite do not have the option to pay by credit card. Should you need to cancel your reservation, you agree to a 15% handling fee that covers the liability costs of lost reservations. Should you need to cancel within 14 days of arrival, you agree to pay the entire balance unless we can rebook the room nights. If you are unsure if you will be able to make the requested dates, please call us instead of booking online. No refunds for early departure or "no shows". There are no retroactive refunds. Gift Certificate reservations require credit card confirmation and are included in our standard cancellation policy.

We want to disclose that we do not have an elevator or handicap accessible rooms. Our Inn has three levels so if you have a handicap to stairs, then you should book a room on a floor that suits your needs.
