Smoking, candles and incense
For the safety of our historic properties and the comfort of all of our guests, smoking is not allowed in the inns. Open-flame candles and incense burning are also prohibited. Failure to adhere to this policy will result in an automatic $150 fee charged to your credit card on file.

Pets & Children
We love them both, but our insurance policy does not allow us to accept pets. Children over the age of 12 can be accommodated in any of our rooms at all locations. Children under the age of 12 are welcomed in specific Cape May and Pennsylvania suites. Washington, DC and Brooklyn, NY can accept younger children in our vacation apartment rentals.

Check-in is from 2 pm until 7 pm. As a small inn, we can not accept unexpected early check-ins, and late check-ins can only be accommodated when pre-arranged. Please let us know what time you plan to arrive when you reserve your stay, or simply give us a call to confirm your approximate arrival time a day or so before your stay.

We understand unforeseen circumstances may make it necessary for you to cancel or postpone your stay. If you notify us of such a need at least two weeks prior to your reserved stay, we will be happy to refund your deposit, minus a $25 handling fee. If you need to cancel after the 14th day prior to your reserved stay, we will do our best to rebook your room with another guest. If we are successful, we will gladly refund your deposit, minus the $25 handling fee. If we are unsuccessful and the room goes un-booked, you will forfeit your deposit.

Reservation Alterations
If you need to alter your reservation to stay fewer days than originally booked, you are responsible for the full cost of your reservation if the change is not made prior to 14 days of the start of the scheduled stay. If, however, we are able to rebook the unused portion of your reservation, you will not be charged for that portion. Only a $25 handling fee will apply.
