ReservationsAdvance reservations with written confirmation are strongly suggested during the Spring, Summer and Fall seasons. Advance deposit is generally required for written confirmation. Policies regarding minimum nights' stay vary with individual innkeepers. Some lodgings will accept only three-day reservations in-season. The purpose of the deposit is to guarantee that the room will be held for your arrival, and to ensure that the room will be paid in the event you do not arrive as anticipated. Any changes in initial reservation should be cleared in advance. Each hotel/motel has established deposit and refund policies. You should check with the property when you make reservations.
