Cancellation Policy

We are a small inn and cancellations greatly affect us. Once you reserve, we make preparations for your stay. We hold your room and turn others away.  A deposit of 50% is required by credit card or check in advance of your stay and will be refunded by check if notice of cancellation is received more than 14 days in advance of your stay minus a $25 cancellation fee per room. If notice is fewer than 14 days, your deposit is refundable only if we can rebook the room.  There is a 2 night minimum on certain week-ends. Call for details. For stays longer than 2 nights, call for cancellation policy.


Cancellation Policy for Special Events: (Union College week-ends, ILCC events, Cooperstown Baseball Hall of Fame Induction week-end, full house bookings,  etc.)

A 50% deposit is required by credit card or check and will be processed upon making the reservation. 30 days prior to your stay, the balance will be processed. Notify us of cancellation with more than 30 days notice, and we will refund your deposit by check, minus a $50 processing fee per room, only if we can rebook the room. No refunds if canceled fewer than 30 days before the event.


Cancellation Policy for Lake Cottage

A deposit of 50% is required by credit card or check upon making the reservation. Should you cancel and we are able to rebook, we will refund your deposit minus 10 % of the full amount by check. Otherwise, the deposit is non-refundable. If you cancel fewer than 14 days, you are responsible for the full amount unless we can rebook the house.
