DEPOSITS, PAYMENTS & RENTAL AGREEMENT: 50% of the total rent via major credit card is required to reserve your cottage. Please call us with your credit card information as soon as you are sure of your dates. A rental agreement will be emailed to you: please fax, scan or mail back the agreement to us within 7 days. The balance of the rent plus 9.75% state and local taxes and 5% county occupancy fees will be charged to your major credit card the day of your arrival.
For nightly or weekly stays, a refundable security deposit of one half rent is held against your credit card during your stay. Your security deposit credit card slip will be shredded within 48 hrs of checkout as long as conditions of rental agreement are met. If there is a problem with the cottage after checkout, we will try and resolve it with you as reasonably as possible but our previous guests have shown us that they love our cottages and take great care of them! If the cottage is left in unduly dirty condition, we reserve the right to deduct a cleaning fee from the deposit. We do not charge a cleaning fee but just ask guests to follow a simple check out list before leaving (take out garbage, put dishes in dishwasher, clean food areas).
CANCELLATION POLICY: We are a small family operation and unable to absorb the costs of cancellations. Cancellations made 25 days or more in advance of the arrival date will be refunded less a 10% credit card processing fee (the credit card companies charge us 5% to charge your card plus 5% to refund). Cancellations made within 25 days of the arrival date (or early check outs) are non-refundable. We understand emergencies happen and recommend that you take out travel insurance for this possibility. We appreciate your understanding.
