New Lodging Option!
Because we all need a break (financially or physically)...I have started offering a $130/nt or $140/nt plus tax (depending upon the cottage booked), a Privacy Please - No Service" stay...for a reduced rate, you can stay in your own private cottage with a basic muffin & juice continental breakfast service in your room. This includes two home baked muffins or pastries daily (baker's choice) and two bottled juices each day of stay. You still get the two bottled waters and soda's each day as part of your rate. There is no housekeeping or maid service on Day 1 or Day 2, then on the third day we replace towels, change sheets and take out the trash for you. This allows you to stay in a secluded stay in private cottage at one of the top B&B Inn's at a reduced rate. You can book your reservation on line at the normal rack rates, send a message to the Innkeeper with your reservation that you are requesting the "Privacy Please" rate. This option must be requested prior to check in and arrival or booked online from our website as a package option.

BYA - "Because You Asked"....
Rates.....why are there so many different prices for B&B Inn stays?...we get this question all the time. Each inn or lodge has to factor in a variety of accommodation benefits and their unique service offerings in addition to the operational expenses and costs to determine what to charge for their lodging. Factors include the lodging space, privacy level, type and quality of breakfast served, daily ammenities including in room coffee service, complimentary beverages, luxury bath ammenities, quality of bedding (thread count on sheets), towel quality, personal convenience items such as robes, hair dryers, music, Cable TV, WiFi, parking accessibility and convenience, access to public transportation, committment to outstanding cleanliness....not to mention the operation expenses of landscaping, jacuzzi's, fireplaces, laundry and hired help for housekeeping, landscaping, weddings, receptions, etc. There is much that goes into running a small business, especially a business highly focused on customer satisfaction. I hope this helps everyone to understand how pricing and value will vary from property to property and what you will want to consider when you're making your next decision to stay at a B&B Inn.
Our Pricing Philosophy
Stated simply, we don’t markup our room rates to artificially mark down just to make folks feel better about getting a discount. Our prices are based on what it takes to operate and maintain the property in the necessary condition to keep our guests safe and comfortable. We have not joined programs such as AAA or AARP or the other travel sites that offer discounts because of the outrageous annual membership costs would simply have to be countered with higher rates to absorb the membership charges. Most folks don’t understand that providing rate discounts actually costs the business to participate in those programs – so rates unfortunately get raised to cover membership fees and ultimately, the discount. Participating in those programs is no assurance that a member property is any better managed than nonmember properties. The reality is that we simply cannot operate a property for less than what it costs to maintain it properly. No games or gimmicks, our rates are reasonably set based on the amenities, service and privacy that our property offers as compared to other similar properties in our market. We don’t misrepresent our property with “flowery” descriptions and professionally doctored pictures that would only serve to disappoint a misinformed visitor upon arrival.
Some travelers shop strictly on price, others choose overall value. Value includes considerations beyond price such as location, quality of accommodations, food, amenities, etc. We hope that you’ll read our reviews on TripAdvisor.com from travelers and visitors just like you and see that we work very hard to provide true value for every travel dollar. Both Steve and I each have over 3 million miles in an airplane seat and countless points from staying in hotels – so we understand what the traveler expects for comfort, safety and value for their travel experience. We WANT to EARN your business, we’d love for all of our guests to return because they enjoyed and found value in their stay. We ENCOURAGE our guests to stay at another inn…and we hope that dollar for dollar comparison, we’ve EARNED your decision to come back again in the future.
Making Reservations on line:
Our website booking engine is easy, secured and allows you to select the cottage and dates of your choice. Making a reservation on line ensures that all guests understand the terms and conditions of your stay and provides an automatic reservation confirmation. Reservations will require a credit card to "hold" the reservation whether made by phone or on line, however there is no advance charging or debiting against your charge card prior to check in. At check in, the full payment will be due either on the credit card used to hold the reservation or on another credit card if you wish to change it. Cash payment is also acceptable and we are willing to waive a 3% credit card processing fee as a discount if payment is made in cash. No shows - people that make reservations and do not show up for check in or fail to call and cancel - will still be charged 50% of the reserved stay to compensate for our lost revenue. When making a reservation, you can always send an email to the innkeeper or through direct email at email@example.com if you have any questions that were not posted on the website. We thank you for your understanding...this is the only formality you will experience when you stay out our inn...we are very relaxed and hope everyone enjoys their visit with us.
We hope to see you soon!
Kathy & Steve ...your Innkeepers
