CANCELLATION POLICY - Note this policy is for direct booking thru MMIC. All other policies are denoted by the platform being used (VRBO/Airbnb, etc.) & all cancellations will be managed per their guidelines.
We are a small business and all cancellations impact us greatly. When we reserve a room for you, we turn away all other inquiries for those nights as we have agreed to hold that room just for you. The Inn is significantly affected by cancellations or amendments to reservations and must adhere to our cancellation policy as described below.
In order to officially hold a reservation 50% of the total balance is due upon receipt of the invoice. Failure to pay the required balance within 24 hours will result in the booking being canceled. After booking - if the check-in date is at least 14 days away or within 24 hours of booking, a refund can be made. A 10% fee may be deducted from the refund to cover processing fees & MMIC time/effort. No refunds for cancellations made within 14 days of check-in.
DAMAGE DEPOSIT - A $125 hold will be placed on your credit card 15 days prior to your reservation and it will be released 3 days after checkout.

NO refunds may be given outside of the stated cancellation policy unless there is a mandatory evacuation or declared emergency by Union County officials for our area. Please check what travel insurance your credit card may offer. You can also visit www.insuremytrip.com to acquire travel insurance.
QUIET TIME - We want to do our absolute best to provide each guest with the opportunity to Rest & Renew. To do this we ask that all guests do their best to minimize noise at all hours of the day. But, we do ask that all guests honor a 10 pm quiet period which lasts until 8 am.

If open, the hot tub is available from 12 pm to 10 pm and users should be considerate of all guests by using the tub in 1-hour blocks. Additionally, regardless of the time of day, keep noise to a minimum while using the hot tub. Other rules;
No children under the age of 13 or infants are allowed.
Please shower before using the tub to remove make-up, sun-screen, insect repellent, or any other oil-based products.
Only clean swimwear may be worn in the tub as the chemicals in the water will remove the colored dyes found in ordinary clothing, causing them to leach into the water and turn it cloudy.
Prevent accidental drowning. Leave the hot tub cover on and latched when the spa is unsupervised.
Prevent Hyperthermia. Understand that alcohol and other medications greatly increase the chance of hyperthermia – the opposite of hypothermia. This occurs when the internal body temperature reaches several degrees above the normal temperature of 98.6 degrees.
Glass. Don’t do it, ever. Trust us.
Do not use a hot tub if you are taking any medication that makes you drowsy or affects your circulation; if necessary, check with your doctor. Pregnant women and the elderly should also consult their doctor before using a hot tub.
Do not use the hot tub if you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs as your judgment will be impaired and you could become unconscious and drown.
No smoking is permitted in or around the tub.
People with cuts or external infections should not use the tub
SURRENDER - Tenant will deliver and surrender to Landlord possession of the Premises immediately upon the expiration of the Term or the termination of this Agreement, clean and in as good condition and repair as the Premises was at the commencement of the Term, reasonable wear and tear excepted.
Unless this Agreement has been extended by mutual written agreement of the Parties, there will be no holding over past the Term under the terms of this Agreement under any circumstances.
