Cancellation policy
ALL CANCELLATIONS MUST BE IN WRITING and can be sent via US mail or Email. It is the renters responsibility to check with our office to insure we have received your notice to cancel a reservation.

If a cancellation occurs anytime up to 180 days prior to your arrival we will automatically refund your deposit, minus $30.00 service charge and $20.00 reservation processing fees. In the event the cancellation occurs within 180 days prior to your arrival we will make every effort to re-rent the Cottage for the time period. However, the deposit, will only be refunded when the Cottage has been re-rented. Since all cottages are individually owned, upgrading from one cottage to another Cottage will be treated in the same fashion as a cancellation.
