Event Policies

Our policies relating to our venue and private events.

Rescheduled Events

In the event the host determines that a postponement of an event is in order, a rescheduling fee will be assessed. The host also understands and agrees that it is their responsibility to work with the venue to find a mutually agreeable rescheduled date.

Event Deposits

In order to book, we require a 50% deposit for the venue and the accommodation fees, along with a security deposit once the contract is signed. 

Event Cancellations

If the event is cancelled 90 days prior to the event date, the host will forfeit the 50% initial deposit for the venue and 50% of the accommodation fees. In the event the host cancels the event for any reason inside 90 days prior to the event, the entire fee will be forfeited as liquidated damages for cancellation.

Event Property Damage

Hosts must provide, at their own expense, a Certificate of General Liability Insurance including Liquor Liability in the amount of $1,000,000 and provided within two weeks of signing the contract. In addition, a security deposit will be owed 90 days prior to the event date. Hosts will be responsible for any damage caused on site.

Event Refunds

A refund of the security deposit will be issued within 10 days after the wedding.

We need to do some work, do you have WiFi?

Yes, we do have WiFi! Due to being on an island in Maine, we often find that our WiFi signal doesn't come through all the time. We have added several Nodes to the inn to assist with WiFi. Most people are able to get work done while here.

What is your cancellation policy?

Being a small inn, we are greatly affected by cancellations, and 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.

What if I need to check-in early or late?

Our typical check-in window is 3pm to 7pm, we do our best to accommodate early and late check-ins but do require advanced notice. If you’ll be arriving after hours please let our team know as soon as possible. We will set you up with an easy self check-in process.
