Deposit and Guarantee Policy
A fifty percent (50%) advance deposit of all rental fees including lodging, tax, departure housekeeping fee, and non-refundable processing and damage protection fees are due at the time of booking your reservation. The remaining 50% balance is due 30 days prior to your arrival date.
No rentals will be made to individuals under the age of 25 unless accompanied by a parent or guardian. Any reservation made under false pretenses will be subject to forfeiture of advance deposit. Further, the party will either not be permitted to check-in or will be asked to vacate the property.

Should you have to shorten the length of your stay within 30 days of arrival, you will forfeit 100% of all unused nights.
For reservations made within 30 days of arrival, cancellation or changes must be made no later than 24 hours after booking the reservation to avoid penalty. A transfer to another cottage is considered a cancellation. There are no refunds for early departures.
