THE JEREMIAH MASON HOUSE BED AND BREAKFAST POLICIES

CANCELLATION POLICY
We understand that sometimes life throws you a curve ball, but for a small Inn like this, we do ask for all cancellations or changes to be done within a 14 day period prior to reservation check in. We are NOT resposible for cancelled flights, last minute sicknesses or even COVID. I STRONGLY encourage folks to look into travel insurance for your full coverage on schedule changes/illnesses last minute. There will be a $25.00 charge if your credit card has already been charged your deposit to cover fee's. I am a Small Bed and Breakfast and last minute cancellations are detrimental to my business. Certain other occasions during which we may have had to turn potential guests away because there is no room at the Inn. ***** large Group reservations that book the whole BNB have a 60 day cancellation policy *******

WEDDING/PARTY/LARGE ROOM BOOKINGS
For all Gatherings where large quantities of rooms are being booked: There is a 50% non-refundable cancellation fee if bookings are cancelled in less than 60 days prior to check-in date. If separate parties pay for rooms, this still applies for special discounts etc have already been applied for said event.

CHILDREN
We love to have children of all ages visit, but please note they must be well behaved. No running, jumping or loud banging that may disrupt the other guests. Please do advise us no less than 24 hours in advance if special preparations are needed to accommodate your children. Due to the high energy of toddlers, they are no longer able to stay in the INN itself, however, If you have children that are of toddler age, I suggest that you rent the Studio Apartment for this is the best choice for a very active toddler.

SMOKING
For the comfort and safety of all, we are a non-smoking facility. We do have seating areas and butt receptacles around the grounds; please feel free to use them. Please be aware that if we find that you have smoked in your guest room, we will charge your credit card $300 or more depending if I need to get it professionally cleaned. This includes any and all forms of smoke/vape etc.

Pets
We do love pets, but realize that there may be guests with allergies or other issues with allowing dogs and cats to stay in the B&B. For this reason, we no longer allow Pet's to stay in the Inn. I Am now renting one of my Studio Apartments that will be the only available place for a 20 pound or under dog, Quantity (1) that must be on lease at all times, not left alone in the apartment at all, and all waste must be picked up.

Deposit
We do require a valid MasterCard or Visa credit card number to hold your room. If you do not have a credit card, please send us a personal check for the amount of one night lodging. Deposits are required for phone and online reservations of 50% or the equivalent of (1) night of your stay.
