Our terms of service for the inn. Please contact us if you have any questions.All Terms of Service
Upon reserving a stay at The Squire Tarbox Inn, a 50% deposit of the entire reservation is required. This amount will be charged to your credit card upon booking the reservation.
We offer self check in any time after 3:00pm. We will text you the day of your stay to confirm your ETA and with directions to your room. Check out is at 11:00 am.
As a small inn, we are greatly affected by cancellations. While we are sympathetic to emergencies, we appreciate your understanding of our cancellation policy.
All cancellations are subject to a $35 handling fee when charged on a credit card, no exceptions. There is a 14 day cancellation policy. If a room is cancelled within the 14 days then there will be a full charge of the amount of nights reserved.
Please note that either a late arrival or an early departure prior to the end of your reservation, is handled as a cancellation and you will be charged for the nights specified in your reservation.
We gladly welcome well-behaved children! Most of our rooms (with the exception of The Mary Margaret) are only able to accommodate a total of two guests max. However, up to 4 guests can be accommodated in The Mary Margaret, but we ask that children are age appropriate to climb a ladder into a loft space. The Elsie and The Anne can be combined to be family friendly. Children and infants do qualify as guests.
We are dog friendly and want our guests to enjoy the company of their well-behaved dog while on vacation! The inn limits the number of dogs to no more than one pet under 75 lbs.
Dog friendly rooms include The Polly, The Mittman, The Eleanor, The Roni and The Mario. A pet fee of $65 will be added to your accommodation charges, and any damages to the rooms will be assessed and charged accordingly in addition to the pet fee. Pets may not be left in the room unattended for any length of time and must always be kept on a leash.
Currently, we do not take security deposits but do request that you treat our home as if it is yours. All damage will be assessed and charged accordingly to the credit card on file. This can include damage to furnishings as well as stains on bedding. We ask that if there ever is an accident that you inform us ahead of time, typically we can address the situation before it gets worse.
All refunds are subject to a $35 handling fee when charged on a credit card, no exceptions.
Beautiful, quaint and tucked away, our historic property has elements that reflect the fact that we’re a rural location and our buildings are extremely old… but in a lovely way. You can expect a few funny quirks… sound travels, floors creak, some ceiling heights are low, some rooms don’t have closets, some rooms are small while others are spacious, and all of our bathrooms are pretty small. Some rooms offer more privacy than others. Since we’re located in the country, sometimes we have dust where we just swept, cobwebs that seem to appear overnight, and insects that may make an appearance. Ladybugs on your window anyone? We’ve done our best to describe each room and the inn itself, but please contact us if you have any questions. Our team is happy to clarify.
No candles in rooms. No parties or gatherings unless authorized and contracted.
