A two night minimum stay is required on season (May 1- Columbus Day). On seasonal weekends, holidays, or times during local events, we require a 2 or 3 night minimum stay.

Payment & Cancellation Policy
COVID-19 Modified Cancelation Policy: We are trying to be as flexible as possible with our cancelation policy during the COVID-19 crisis. In doing so, we have enacted a temporary amendment to our standard cancelation policy that will apply ONLY to verifiable COVID-19 related cancellations.
If a Guest's reservation is cancelled within the nonrefundable period stated in the terms and conditions at time of their booking, a date change without fees or a gift certificate in the total value of the reservation at that time will be offered.
Should Guest not comply with the Rhode Island Department of Health's mandated COVID-19 Certificate of Compliance Submittal, Guest's reservation will be cancelled 48 hours prior to arrival and the total value of the reservation at that time will be placed on a gift certificate.
- Guest will be charged 50% of the total booking cost (including taxes and applicable fees) at the time of booking. All remaining balances will be charged without further notice 30 days prior to Guest's stay. Should a booking occur within 30 days of a scheduled stay, 100% of the total booking cost (including taxes and applicable fees) will be charged at the time of booking.
- Guest who cancels more than 30 days prior to the scheduled arrival date will receive a full refund less a processing fee of 10% of their total deposit or a charge of $250.00, whichever is the lesser amount.
- No refunds will be issued to Guest who cancels within 30 days of the scheduled arrival date.
- No refunds will be issued for early departures or no shows.
- Date changes will not be permitted within 30 days of Guest's stay.
- Date changes made outside of 30 days of Guest's stay will be charged a $50.00 change of date fee. If the room rates are higher for the new dates of stay, the Guest will be charged the difference between the new rates and the original rates as well as additional taxes and applicable fees. This charge will be made at the time the change is made. Date changes are subject to availability and not guaranteed. Multiple date changes will not be permitted.
An additional cleaning fee of $400 will be charged per stay, not per night.
