Early Arrivals:  Because of work and school schedules we regret that we are unable to accommodate early arrivals.  Should you find yourself in the area early consider visiting the shops, restaurants and lighthouse of Stonington Borough.  It's just a 4 minute drive from the inn;  North Main Street is 1/4 mile west of the us, just head south on it and follow the signs.

Deposit:  a deposit equal to one night stay or 50% of the total for visits of more than 3 nights and for packages is needed to confirm your reservation.  Deposit may be charged to the credit card of your choice or, if time permits, you may send a check.

Minimum Stays:  Two nights on weekends April 1 through October 31; a three night minimum stay is required for most holiday weekends.  Note: We do not accept advance bookings for SINGLE Saturday nights except during the winter.  Last minute bookings may be available in some rooms or a single Saturday night might be available "sandwiched" between other bookings.

Payment Types:  we accept Visa/Mastercard, American Express, and Discover.  Cash, travelers’ checks and personal checks are also welcome.

Cancellation Policy:  Because of our intimate size, cancellations affect us significantly.  Therefore we uphold a strict cancellation policy:   
Reservation changes (date or room): $25
Cancellation more than 7 days in advance of arrival: $50/room
Cancellation from 7 to 2 days prior to arrival:  50% of total charge unless we're able to fully rebook your reservation
Cancellation 1 day prior or less:  100% of total charge

Cancellation can be made by telephone only!  Email cancellations will not be accepted.  We will give you a cancellation number for your records -- until you have that number, your reservation is still active.
If circumstances require you to cancel, you may wish to ask a friend or family member to take over your reservation.  Travel insurance is available through Travel Guard International,  www.travelguard.com.

Children:  kids over 8 years old are welcome.  One child can be accommodated in the Russell Suite in addition to the usual two adults or children may stay in their own room if they are old enough to do so.  There is an extra charge for a child in the Russell Suite ($40-$75/day depending on age and length of stay).

Pets:  one well behaved, well trained pet may stay with its humans in the Noyes Room.  ($25 charge.)  You are responsible for cleaning up after your pet and for any damage caused.  For the health of both you and your pet, your pet should be treated with Advantix, Frontline or similar pest repellent as deer ticks carrying Lyme Disease are common in southeastern Connecticut.  REMEMBER:  you are choosing to vacation WITH your pet, not bringing him/her along to avoid kennel or petsitter fees.  Your pet may not be left alone in the room at any time unless it is happily crated;  there are several restaurants in the area with outdoor seating that allow pets.

Smoking:  smoking is allowed on the covered porch and on the grounds.  No smoking is allowed inside the inn and a $400 cleaning fee will be charged to any guest who violates the smoking policy.  We also do not allow the use of candles or incense for the comfort and safety of all of our guests.

Room Tax:  15% room tax applies to all room charges.

We pay a 10% commission to travel agents.
