Reservation Deposits

For most bookings, a deposit of one night’s room charge with tax, is required at booking.  Cancellations can be made up to 7 days before arrival, without penalty.  Cancellations made within 7 days of arrival will forfeit the reservation deposit.

During Fantasy Fest and New Years Eve, reservation policies are more restrictive.  Reservations for these dates require full prepayment upon booking.  Cancellations must be made 30 days in advance of arrival in order to receive a deposit refund.

Check-In / Check-Out

Reception desk hours for check-in are between 3pm and 10pm.  Check-out is before 11am.  Late arrivals can be accommodated by calling ahead on your arrival date before 10pm.

Payment Methods

We accept VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Discover cards, cash, or travelers checks in US currency.


For the comfort of all guests, and the preservation of our historic buildings, all guestrooms are non-smoking.  We do require strict compliance with our smoking policy in all rooms and interior spaces.  Guests are welcome to smoke on porches, patios, and outdoor areas.  Ashtrays are placed in those areas for convenience.
