Accepted payments for your stay are by Credit Card (American Express, Discover, Visa or MasterCard). Deposits are by credit card only at the time of reservation.  If you "walk in" and we have a room available, accepted payments are Cash, Check or Credit Card.  


As a small inn located in a small river town we have tried to offer our guests an easy reservation process without all of the stipulations about deposits and cancellations.  However it's proven necessary to implement a deposit and cancellation policy.  We are experiencing cancellations that do not afford us the opportunity to put the room back onto the market with adequate time to find another guest  



If you reserve an Individual Room(s) or the Entire Inn, a 50% Deposit is required at time of booking.  With appropriate notice (see below) your Deposit will be refunded if you cancel your room reservation.

The balance due on your reservation will be charged to your credit card on file 72 hours prior to 4pm on your expected date of arrival. No payments are due when you arrive at the Inn during check-in.  If you are splitting the room charges among members of your party you will need to do that privately.


If you cancel your reservation at least 72 hours prior to 4pm on your expected date of arrival your Deposit will be refunded.  If you cancel after that time your Deposit is not refundable and the balance of the amount due will be charged to your credit card on file.  

"NO SHOW":  If you do not show up for your reservation any deposits or lodging payments made will not be refunded.

REBOOKING:  If we can rebook all or part of your cancelled reservation, the amount paid by the new guest for your cancelled reservation will be refunded to you (minus any taxes due).


When you make your online reservation, you will be asked to confirm that you have read and agreed to the above Deposit & Cancellation Policies.  When you agree you are authorizing Blue Door Inn to charge 50% upon reservation of the total cost of your stay to your credit card on file with the balanced charged 72 hours in advance of 4pm on your arrival date. Your reservation is not confirmed until the deposit is processed for payment.
