In order to secure a reservation you will be asked to pre-pay an amount equal to one night's charge or, up to 50% of your total reservation cost during peak demand times. Due to the several cottage styles and the limited number of each type, once you have made a reservation, it is probable that other requests for this type of cottage are turned away. For this reason deposits are considered "non-refundable". In the event that you must cancel your reservation for any reason, please let us know as soon as possible. We will immediately try to re-rent the cottage. It is our policy to refund your deposit if we are able to fill the exact space that you reserved with another suitable reservation. A $25 service charge per cottage/per week reserved is deducted from returned deposits.
