RESERVATION/CANCELLATION POLICIES

Check-In Time 03:00 PM | Check-Out Time 11:00 AM

Reservation Policy

Room rates include double occupancy and a full breakfast for two. Rates shown are per night, excluding tax (13.70%). Prices may vary from outdated quotes on other websites. Only the rates published on our official website are guaranteed. Only one discount or promotion can be applied at a time.

We do not accept walk-in's or last minute guests, unless speical arrangements are made with the owner by calling first. Online bookings within 24 hours of the stay must be confirmed with owner via phone, as we may not always see new reservations immediatly. Otherwise, please make your reservation online. In both cases, the auto generated booking confirmation email should be followed with a personal acceptance email from the owner.

All reservations must be guaranteed with a credit card, regardless of how the final payment will be made. We accept MC, Visa, and AmEx credit cards and Gift Certificates. We do not accept personal checks.

If you are redeeming a gift certificate, the number must be provided at the time of making your reservation. If a no-show or late cancellation, the gift certificate will be applied, and any remaining balance is charged to your card. Gift certificates expire one year from the date of issue. Any balance left on the certificate is forfeited if not used by the expiration date, and no refunds will be issued.

Cancellation Policy

Making a reservation at bed and breakfast is not the same as making a hotel reservation. Due to our small size, cancellations affect us significantly. A last-minute cancellation gives us little chance of rebooking a room. For this reason, we uphold a strict cancellation policy:

  • Guests are responsible for payment of all nights reserved regardless of their actual arrival or departure date.

  • No-shows are responsible for full payment of their entire reservation.

  • Should you cancel outside of 10 days prior to arrival, there will be no penalty. If you have pre-paid, it will be refunded.

  • Cancellations (including changes) made 9 days or less prior to your scheduled arrival are subject to full charge if the room is unable to be rebooked, the full reservation value will be charged to the credit card provided at the time of making the reservation. Any rescheduled reservations will require the guest's full financial payment, and the deposit is not transferrable to another stay. 

 

OTHER POLICIES

Property Damages

Any damages, stolen items, or broken items occurring during the stay will be the guest's full financial responsibility, including anyone traveling with the guest. Any special clean-up resulting in damages caused by the guests will be charged to the credit card. Charges may need to be applied after guest departure as deemed necessary by the Owner. Robe replacement cost is $75 and towel replacement cost is $15. Please do not use towels for anything other than drying off. If you have a spill or need to clean something else, please ask for old towels/rags.

Alcoholic Beverages

We do not hold a license to resell alcoholic beverages. Guests may bring their own, but for the safety and comfort of all of our guests, please drink responsibly. There are several establishments to purchase locally as well. For Special Events, hard liquor is not permitted. Wine, Beer, and Champaign only are permitted. The Lindley House and/or employees will not be held responsible for any incidents.

Smoking & Candle Burning

Due to our building's historical nature and for the safety and comfort of all of our guests, we do not allow smoking inside of the rooms (we have several designated smoking areas outdoors) or incense/candle burning in any of our cottages. Guests smoking in their rooms will be charged a minimum $200 cleaning fee. 

Wedding Night Stays & Other Visitors

If you are booking a stay for your wedding night, please be advised that our cottages, common areas, and gardens are only for our registered guests. Booking a reservation for a stay does not entitle a booked guests' family and friends to use any guest room or any part of the grounds for bridal party wedding preparations and/or photographs without the owner's approval. There is a discounted grounds rental rate for guests staying with us at the time of their event. 

Photography & Outside Guests

While we understand that our grounds and home are the perfect settings for your photographs, we do not allow outside photographers or group/family/graduation/wedding/etc. photographs without prior permission.
