Cottage Policy






Our goal is to ensure fairness and satisfaction for all our guests. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in adhering to our cancellation policy. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

ARRIVAL TIMES - Check-in after 3:00 PM and Check-out before 10:00 AM


CHILDREN - Children are welcome with an accompanying adult. All cabins have some type of stairs, whether inside for a loft or second story or on the front porch, which could be dangerous for smaller children/babies. Also, cabins are not “child-proofed”. If bringing children, you should check each space for potential hazards and mitigate the potential danger.  


PETS - Our cabins are dog-friendly and dogs are welcome! We allow up to 2 dogs per cabin maximum. There is a $35 dog fee. This is a one time fee that is not charged for subsequent stays provided there is no damage or excessive cleaning required. For additional information please view our pet release we require to finalize your stay.

DIRECT BOOKING CANCELLATION POLICY - All cancellations for reservations made through third-party platforms (VRBO, Airbnb, etc.) will be handled according to the respective platform's policies. We understand that unforeseen circumstances may arise, and we strive to accommodate cancellations whenever possible. However, as a small business, cancellations have a significant impact on our operations. When we reserve a room for you, we turn away other inquiries for those nights, effectively holding that room unavailable for other potential guests.

Payment: Upon booking, a 50% deposit is required to secure your reservation. The remaining balance is due 14 days prior to your arrival.

Refunds: Refunds, minus any credit card processing fees incurred by MMIC are made; if your check-in date is 14 days or more away AND/OR you request a refund within 24 hours of booking. For cancellations made within 14 days of the check-in date, refunds are not available. However, we will make every effort to rebook your cabin or suite. If we are successful in booking the reserved accommodation, you will receive a refund for the amount we were able to rent the accommodation, minus any credit card processing fees incurred by MMIC.

DAMAGE DEPOSIT - A $125 hold may be placed on your credit card 15 days prior to your reservation. We will release it approximately 3 days after checkout. 

TRIP CANCELLATION/INTERRUPTION - We highly recommend direct book guest purchase trip cancellation or interruption insurance in case of family emergencies/bad weather delays, flight/rental car cancellations, job loss, snow/ice, etc. If you live in an area prone to hurricanes, forest fires, etc. and cannot make your trip, please seek reimbursement through your travel insurance.
