Covid - 19 and our Cancellation Policy

We are trying to adhere to recommendations, which change daily.  If you have booked through an OTA - Air bnb, expedia or booking.com - we must follow their recommended policies.  If you would like to cancel your reservation, please do so through them directly and we will refund your deposits accordingly.

If you book directly through us, please know that we have a 48 hour cancellation policy.  If you must cancel we will either refund you, re-book you to a later date, or will issue a credit for your stay that can be used on a future reservation within a year of your original stay date.
