Cancellation Policy

We ask you to read our Inn’s cancellation policies carefully. When you make your reservation you are agreeing to them.  Unlike a large hotel, B&Bs or small inn’s cannot easily absorb the cost of last minute cancellations or no shows. We may have turned down many reservation requests in order to ensure that a particular room is there for you. We can’t shuffle people from room to room as they show up, like a hotel where all the rooms are identical. We understand that plans change at the last minute. We hope you understand that, as a small B&B-Inn with limited availability, we must enforce our cancellation policies.

It is a 7 day cancellation policy.  That means if you cancel with less than 7 days of your arrival,  you will be responsible for the rooms unless we can re-book them.

We would also like to remind our winter guest that this is snow country. The roads over the passes are kept open by the Colorado Highway Department. But on occasion some of the passes are closed while the snow is being cleared. If you are coming from the South and both Red Mountain and Lizard Head passes are closed by the Highway Dept, or you are coming from the East (Denver or Colorado Springs area) and both Vail and Monarch passes are closed by the Highway Dept on your travel day and you wish reschedule or receive a credit for a future visit, we will be happy to do so. No refunds will be made unless your rooms are rebooked. Otherwise, our cancellation policy applies for all other conditions.


We recommend purchasing travel insurance through your local travel agent, on the web (Travel Guard or any other ), etc. to protect your vacation investment against unforeseen cancellation or changes due to a variety of maladies or emergencies, which might include illness, acts of god, etc.
