FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: What meals will you have available?
A: Due to Pennsylvania law for Bed and Breakfast establishments we only serve breakfast (complimentary) to overnight guests. There are many restaurants (upscale to casual) in the area that we can recommend for lunch and dinner. We can even make reservations for you and may have some discounts.
Q: Do you serve breakfast in the guest rooms?
A: No. Breakfast is served in the Dining Room or (if requested) the Casual Kitchen area. We may make exceptions for special circumstances if discussed in advance. There is normally an additional charge for this service.
Q: How old must I be to make a reservation?
A: 18 years or older. You will also need a valid photo ID and a credit card to hold the room. Each room must have at least one guest who is 18 years or older stay in the room.
Q: What is your reservation policy?
A: To guarantee your reservation, a deposit of 50 percent is required for a stay of two or more nights. A 100 percent deposit is required for one-night stays. The balance is due at check-in and can be in the form of major credit/debit cards, cash, or traveler check. We do not accept personal checks.
Q: What types of payment will you accept?
A: Payment is expected at the time of check-in and can be in the form of major credit/debit cards or cash. We do not accept personal checks.
Q: I will not arrive until very late. Can you accommodate a late check-in?
A: Yes, if prearranged and approved; however, we ask that you simply coordinate your breakfast selections in advance so we can be sure to have everything you request. We also ask that you keep us informed during your travels if your arrival time changes.
Q: Can I arrive earlier than the normal check-in time, are you able to accommodate?
A: Sometimes but it depends on the guest schedule the night before and if guests checkout on time. For possibility of early check-in, it is best to contact us early during the day of arrival to find out if the room is available. Bottom line, you are always more than welcome to check-in early, leave your luggage and go explore the area. We can move your luggage to the room when it is available.
Q: What if I have to cancel my reservation?
A: Should you need to cancel or change reservation for any reason, we require at least seven days advance notification by telephone 215 679- 5764. With at least seven days notice, we will refund your deposit, less a service charge of 10 percent of your total reservation. Cancellations made six days or less will be charged for the full amount of the reserved stay unless we are able to rebook the room. If we are able to rebook the room, we will refund the rebooked portion, less the 10 percent service charge. We are a small Bed and Breakfast and cancellations affect us dramatically. If you have any concerns about possibly having to cancel we recommend inexpensive trip cancellation insurance.

A: All bedrooms have their own PRIVATE (en-suite) bathrooms.
