Check-In

Standard check-in is between 3:30 pm and 7:00 pm. Please inquire at booking if you require a late check-in. Early arrivals may leave luggage and return after 3:30 pm if desired.

Check-Out

Standard check-out is between 8:30 am and 11:00 am.

Reservation Deposits

Reservations are based upon one or two persons (above the age of 12) per room. A valid credit card books your reservation. Deposits are discussed with bookings.

Cancellation

We certainly understand that changes in plans do occur in our mobile society.  As a small inn, we trust that you understand our need for ample notice of cancellation.  A credit card number or one night deposit is required to secure a reservation.  If you must cancel, kindly do so promptly.  If a cancellation is not received 7 days in advance (holidays, special events, or rental of three rooms require a 14 day cancellation), you will be charged for the entire reservation and receive a gift certificate for those rooms/nights to be used at a later date.  The gift certificate will be good for one rebooking for those specific rooms within a period of six months after the cancellation.  Re-bookings are subject to availability.  As a small luxury property, we do not hold rooms.   A full-house booking is paid in full at the time of booking; any refund for a full-house booking will be in the form of a gift certificate.  Reservations not cancelled or cancelled after scheduled check-in will be considered “No Shows.”  There is no gift certificate/refund provided for early departures or “No Shows.”

Children

Although you may encounter well-behaved, civility-oriented nieces/nephews/grandchildren at the Inn upon rare occasions, we do not book children under the age of 12.

Smoking

We are a non-smoking Inn.  Specific garden areas are available for our guests to smoke.  A $250.00 cleaning fee will be executed for smoking anywhere inside Bloomsbury.  In addition, a $250.00 liability fee will be assessed for initiating a flame inside Bloomsbury.

Libations

Each guest room hosts a decanter of sherry or port.  Wine, limited menu, is available at afternoon social.  Glassware and ice are always available.

Pets

Although we are pet friendly, we do not accept pets or therapy animals.  Fully trained service animals are always welcome.  There are plenty of birds, squirrels, bunnies, camellias and butterflies to entertain your “pet” craving.  On a very cold morning in December 2010, a beautiful orange and white cat adopted our front verandah as her new home.  Miss Kitty Stray is sure to be awaiting your arrival; but, she is not allowed inside the inn.
