Blue Hill Inn Policies
In order to confirm a reservation, we require a one-night deposit. For extended stays or multiple rooms, we may require a 50% deposit. This is payable by cash, check, or credit card but we must also have a current credit card on file. The deposit may be waived for returning guests.
Because there is such an abundance of activities in and near Blue Hill even on a rainy day, the Blue Hill Inn encourages longer stays. Because we think you’ll like the area as much as we do, we can offer a special rate for stays of four nights or more.
We guarantee rooms will be ready for check-in by 3 p.m. They are often ready earlier and we do have lovely parlors should you stop by early and need to wait a moment. If you would you like to stay beyond the 11 a.m. check out time, we may be able to accommodate you with advanced notice.
Unlike large chain hotels and resorts, we never overbook in anticipation of cancellations. As such, your room is reserved for you alone, from the time you book your stay. Each reservation is like a puzzle piece around which all the others fit. As such, cancellations on short notice make it extremely difficult to rebook vacancies. For this reason, once within the cancellation period, two weeks prior to your arrival, you are financially responsible for your dates as booked, and we are unfortunately not able to accommodate cancellations, change of dates, or shortening of your stay. We regret that we have to be so firm with this policy, but we’ve found it to be crucial to running such a small business successfully. Reservations for longer stays or multiple rooms may have a 30 day cancellation period. There is a administrative fee of $25 for all cancellations.
If this policy is a concern for you, we highly recommend that you consider travel insurance, which is widely available and will compensate you in the event that unforeseen circumstances disrupt your plans.
We welcome pets of all sorts in our Cape House Suite and Studio. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate pets in our main inn. Although we don’t require a pet deposit, the guest will be held responsible for any repair or cleaning costs if necessary.
The Blue Hill Inn is a non-smoking property. This includes the Cape House and the surrounding gardens. A room cleaning fee of $100 will apply for non-compliance.
If you have checked our availability calendar and the room you like is not available for the entire period of your desired stay, please call us as we may be able to assist you.
