Inn Policies

Our policies relating to our rooms and inn.

Inn Deposits

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.

Check-in & Check-out

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 send you an easy self check-in process before you arrive. Our check-out time is 11am.

Inn Cancellations

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.

Children at the Inn

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.

Pets at the Inn

We are pet 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. Pet friendly reservations must be made in advance since the inn has limited accommodations for pets.

Pet friendly rooms include The Polly, The Mittman, The Eleanor, The Roni and The Mario. A pet fee of $50 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.

Inn Property Damage

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.

Inn Refunds

All refunds are subject to a $35 handling fee when charged on a credit card, no exceptions.

Historic Property

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 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.

Additional Rules

No candles in rooms. No parties or gatherings unless authorized and contracted.

Do you have a restaurant on the property?

At this time we do not have a restaurant at the inn, however, there are several local restaurants we think you’ll love! We've provided a list of local recommendations in our local guide. Be sure to check out our events page for pop-up dinners and our summer pizza night schedule.
