About Our Policies

Reservation Policy

When the hotel has no vacancy, your card on file will be charged one day ahead of time. If your card does not go through, we will call the phone number on file to resolve the problem. If we cannot get in touch with you, we will re-book the room.

A deposit equal to 50% of the stay is required to confirm a reservation, with the balance due upon arrival.

For reservations of one night only, full payment is required when the booking is made. Guests are responsible for all nights reserved, regardless of their actual arrival or departure.

Cancellation Policy

We ask you to read our Inn’s cancellation policies carefully. When you make your reservation, you agree 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 to ensure that a particular room is there for you.

We cannot 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 know 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 seven 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 guests 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). Both Vail and Monarch passes closed by the Highway Dept on your travel day, and you wish to 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.

Other Information

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.
