Non-Smoking policy: There is no smoking permitted anywhere on the premises, either within the rooms and buildings, or on the grounds. The word smoking as used herein shall be construed to mean the burning of any substance whether for aromatic, cooking purposes or for any purpose including but not limited to candles, cigarettes and or cigars. The guest agrees that due to the fact that it is impossible or impracticable to the calculate the actual damage done by smoking including damage to the marketability of the room, lost revenue, and costs incurred to abate odors discoloration and the imitation by others of the guests smoking behavior, and further, in consideration for being permitted to stay at the inn, all guests accept and agree as a precondition that if they smoke anywhere on the premises, in exchange for smoking against our policy, the guest shall owe the greater of a charge of $300 plus one night’s room rental or the actual cost of abatement of smoke and or odor damage. The guests agree that the opinion of the innkeeper and or housekeeper as to whether or not a guest smoked in the room without having been seen smoking, will be sufficient to establish the fact that the guest smoked, and incurred the penalty. The penalty may be charged on the guests’ credit card by the inn.

Refund of Deposit Depends on How Far In Advance You Made the Reservation

In consideration of Windward House taking the reserved room off of the market the guest agrees to the following reservation policy. Making a reservation and tendering the room deposit is the guest’s assent to all Windward House policies including pet, non-smoking, and reservation deposit as set forth here.

In order to receive a refund of deposit you must cancel a reservation made thirty or more days in advance of the date of intended stay no later than 14 days from the date you have made the reservation. You must cancel a reservation made less than thirty days in advance of the date of intended stay no later than 14 days before the start of the first day of your intended stay. Cancellation outside of this period forfeits refund of deposit. The guest owes the full reservation amount for any reservation that has commenced and has not been canceled.

Cancellation

A cancellation is effected by notice to the innkeepers. Notice is not effective unless it has been given via telephone to the innkeeper directly, and same has been acknowledged by the innkeeper to the guest via email. No reservation may be canceled by voicemail message, email or facsimile transmission, or any method other than described. Any reservation made constitutes acceptance of all the bed & breakfast’s policies. Travel insurance can be purchased from third parties to insure the cost of your trip in the event it must be canceled outside the cancellation period due to circumstances outside of your control. Room Reservation Deposit

To confirm a reservation and reserve a room, a deposit of one night’s lodging cost or 50% of the entire reservation cost, whichever is greater, is due at the time of booking per room reserved. The deposit is applied to room charges, and the balance is due upon arrival at check-in. We accept cash payment, Visa, Mastercard or Discover.

 

All rates listed are per night, single or double occupancy, and are subject to Maine’s seven percent lodging tax. Additional persons (when the room allows and at the Innkeeper’s discretion) are $50 per person, per night. Prime season weekend reservations require a two-night minimum stay. Certain holiday periods require a two or three-night minimum stay. Please call to check specific availability.
