Check-In / Check-Out:
During the summer, check-in is 5 PM and check-out is 9 AM. During the spring and fall, check-in and check-out times are flexible. It’s best to call or email us a week or so before you stay to discuss an early check-in.

Deposits: 30% of lodging total, due at time of reservation. Remainder of balance is due upon departure.

Cancellations: Because of our small size, cancellations affect us significantly. Most of our reservations are made well in advance of the stay. If you should need to cancel, your deposit will be refunded only if you notify us more than 60 days prior to your arrival date. We will happily return your deposit if we can re-book your original space, or your deposit can be applied to a future stay.

Payment: We prefer personal checks but will honor Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express (3% convenience fee).

Pets: We welcome pets in any of our shore cabins. We ask that pets not accompany you to the island. A per-pet housekeeping fee of $30/day or $150/week is added to the final bill.
