All our rates are based on double occupancy and include breakfast and afternoon treats. Additional guests may be accommodated in our suites at a cost of $55.00 per person per night. State and local tax is additional. A 3-night minimum stay may be required on some holiday weekends, and a 2-night minimum stay is required during the summer season and all weekends throughout the year. Please contact the Inn directly in the event a single night stay may be available. 

Please do not bring visiting friends or relatives who are not registered guests into the Inn without the express consent of the Innkeeper.

Air mattresses are not allowed, and we do not have roll-away cots. 

Children/Infants

Children over the age of 10 are welcome. The Inn at the Oaks is not suitable for infants or children under the age of 10 and cannot be accommodated. There are no exceptions. If you show up with an infant or child under 10 you will unfortunately be turned away and your reservation will be forfeited.

Deposits

For direct bookings and third-party bookings: 3 nights or less must be paid in full at the time of booking. For stays longer than 3 nights, 50% of the lodging total must be paid at the time of booking with the balance due being automatically charged to the credit card on file 14 days before arrival. Reservations made within 14 days of arrival must be paid in full at the time of booking. Guests booking through an on-line travel agent must pay in full at the time of booking.

Cancellations

We are a small inn; therefore, cancellations affect us greatly. Please read the information below carefully. 

For reservations that are booked directly with the Inn:

If we receive your cancellation notice via phone or email at least 14 days before your arrival date you will be refunded your deposit minus a $50 processing fee. To avoid the $50 processing fee, you may move your reservation out to another date within one year of the original booking date. Please note that higher rates may be applied based on room selection and seasonal pricing. 

If you need to cancel within two weeks of your arrival, your reservation will only be refunded if we are able to re-book your room for the entire stay that was booked, and a $50 cancellation processing fee will still apply.

For reservations made through travel partners and third parties:

  • Reservations booked through an online travel partner may be canceled and refunded with more than 30 days’ notice prior to your arrival date. Third-party cancellations with less than 30 days’ notice are non-refundable.

Please consider purchasing travel insurance if you are concerned about protecting yourself from an occurrence that might cause you a late cancellation. 

  • We will not issue a gift certificate for cancellations.
  • Early departures are regarded as cancellations and are non-refundable.
  • “No shows” are non-refundable.
