Our Policies

Reservations

We confirm reservations by phone with a credit card at which time we will take some general information (e.g., arrival time, food allergies) to ensure that we are prepared to provide maximum hospitality for your stay.  Please note that there is ordinarily a minimum stay of two nights on weekends between May 1 and October 31, holiday weekends and the period between Christmas and New Year’s.

We understand that unforeseen events arise, and so we will provide full refunds, less a $30 per room/per night administration fee, for cancellations made more than seven days in advance of the reserved date.  Cancellations made seven days or less will be subject to the full charge of the room unless we are able to rent the room, in which case we will provide a full refund less the administration fee.  Different rules apply for group reservations (three rooms or more) – please call for details.

Check-in/check-out times

Check-in is from 16:00 to 18:00 each day and we will be there to greet you at that time.  For an additional fee of $40, we will accommodate check-ins earlier than 16:00 – please let us know in advance.  Check-out is 11:00.

Rates

Our rates are based on double occupancy (three in the Gatineau/Fairbairn suite).  Additional persons will be charged a supplement of $35 each.  Single occupants will be deducted $10.  We offer a discount of $10 per room for each night beyond a two-night stay.  We also offer winter mid-week rates: a discount of $20 per night, Monday to Thursday, from November 1 to April 30, except February 14-15 and between December 25 and January 2 (not combinable with packages or other discounts).

Breakfast

Freshly served in the dining room, normally at 9:00 each morning (9:30 on Sundays).  Exceptions can be made for groups that occupy the entire house.  If you need to start your day sooner or later we will be happy to pack you a breakfast to go.

Children

We strive to be an adult-oriented establishment that offers a tranquil and relaxing environment for our guests, and so we must advise that children under 12 are not allowed.

Pets

We love pets, but out of concern for our guests who may suffer from allergies, we must advise that pets are not allowed.  (Disclosure: we do have three small dogs of our own, but they are hypoallergenic and remain in our private living area.)

Smoking

We are a no-smoking establishment.
