Due to our intimate size, cancellations affect us significantly. If a cancellation is made 30 days or longer prior to your arrival date your $100 deposit will be forfeited. If your cancellation is made fewer than 30 days prior to your arrival date, the entire stay will be forfeited. Should it be necessary for you to depart earlier than your confirmed dates, you will be responsible for all of the original room nights reserved. Nightly room rates are for single or double occupancy, except for our two-bedroom cabins which can accommodate up to four people. Additional guests are $100 per person, per night in rooms with pull-out sofa beds. The room rate includes a stocked in-room refrigerator complete with drinks, snacks and treats, as well as a wide variety of on-site activities.


We reserve the right to cancel or modify reservations where it appears that a customer has engaged in fraudulent or inappropriate activity or under other circumstances where it appears that the rates or details of the reservation contains or resulted from a mistake or error. Advance reservations for Dining, Spa and Golf must be made directly with each outlet after confirming your Room Package Reservation. All packages exclude taxes, resort fee and gratuities.

A $100 deposit is required upon reservation. All remaining room costs will be charged in full 14 days prior to your arrival. After your deposit has been received, we will send a confirmation letter, as well as directions and useful information.


The credit or debit card used for booking must be the same card presented for payment along with a valid photo ID upon check-in. In addition to the deposit(s) taken prior to arrival, a pre-authorization amount will be placed on your card at check-in. This is a temporary hold of a specific amount – it is not a charge to your account, but it can create a hold on those funds or against credit availability. We also may charge your card for any damages to the room or premises you or your guests cause. Once your actual incurred charges are posted at check-out, based on your bank, credit card company, or institution’s policy, it can take anywhere from 24 hours to 30 days for the original pre-authorization amount to be removed. It is your responsibility to be aware of how your bank, credit card company, or institution handles all of your transactions, including pre-authorizations. The hotel will not be responsible for any delay in releasing funds, or returning availability or any fees or charges by your bank, credit card company, or institution as a result of your use of a credit or debit card. We are unable to remove pre-authorizations directly through our hotel. We do not accept any third-party billing. This policy applies for all reservations.


Room rates are subject to an 8% New York sales tax, a 5% county rooms tax, and a 12% resort fee. Room rates and taxes are subject to change without notice. Please note that a 3 night stay minimums may apply to peak weekends.
