Policies and Conditions at Blue Skies Inn

Blue Skies Inn is a family friendly bed & breakfast and is often being used for family reunions where kids are a big part of the gathering. Most of our suites are specifically designed to accomodate families and we even have real handicapped suites as well.

So we welcome children of all ages, since the distinctive design of the spacious, three-room suites at Blue Skies Inn affords more private space and fewer shared facilities than most B&Bs. We will ask children and parents alike to sign our "Kid Contract" so that all guests at the inn have a good time. We believe that children should be able to stay at an inn provided that they have consideration for our other guests.

Policies for Suite Use at Blue Skies Inn
Suite Use
All of the suites at Blue Skies Inn are NO SMOKING suites. We regret that we have found it necessary to impose substantial financial penalties for violation of this policy. Smoking on the B&B property is permitted only on designated outdoor covered porches. This includes "smokeless" and electric cigarettes, and any other "smokeless" devices.

Sorry, Blue Skies Inn has no facilities that can accommodate your pets, nor do we allow pets to stay in guests' vehicles. There are no resident pets at Blue Skies Inn. We have made a special effort to create an allergen-free environment so that those with allergies can stay with us.

Other Restrictions
NO CANDLES Candles are strictly prohibited by our insurance carriers. The same penalty for in-room smoking will be assessed immediately for a violation of this policy. This is a safety issue. All of our suites have adjustable lighting. Electric candles are permitted.

NO INCENSE OR OTHER FLAMABLES No fire of any kind is permitted in the suites, including, but not limited to incense and fondue burners. All suites have access to a mircrowave oven.

Check-In / Check-Out
Please schedule your arrival between 4-7 PM. If you must come later in the day, we will make special arrangements for your arrival. Our check-out time is 11 AM. Early check-in is available at an additional cost of $20/hr. and must be arranged in advance of your visit. Late check-out is available at an additional cost of $20/hr. and must be arranged in advance of your visit.

Security Deposit / Damage
All reservations will require a credit card, even if payment is made by other means. Signing a room contract authorizes us to charge room damage to your credit card.

  • $75 lost key fee.

  • Only registered guests may use the inn or its facilities. Visitors may make use of the facilities only with the explicit and express permission of the innkeepers.

Policies for Reservations at Blue Skies Inn
Making Reservations
Upon booking, the credit card that you supplied will be charged for 50% of your visit. The balance will be charged two weeks before your stay.

A credit card will guarantee your reservation immediately. We also accept cash, travelers' checks and our gift certificates as security, but a credit card account number and expiration date will be required for all reservations to secure against damage to the suites or other violations of our posted policies. Sorry, we do not accept personal checks, except in payment for gift certificates.

No reservation is finalized unless and until we send you a confirmation.
We will send your confirmation by whatever method you request: mail, fax or e-mail.

Making Reservations On-line
There is a button on each room description that will enable you to check availability and submit a confirmed reservation request on-line using our ReservationNexus secure server.

Special Rates, Coupons & Gift Certificates
Please identify any special rates, coupons or gift certificates by name and/or number in the "How did you find out about us?" input box on the Credit Card Information form that follows. Your initial confirmation auto-generated by Reservation Nexus will not reflect any special rates, coupons or gift certificates. We will make the appropriate modifications on the amount due when we process your booking, and we will send you an amended email confirmation with the corrected amounts.

Weekend Bookings
We ask for a two night stay on Summer weekends (Fri-Sun), May 15 through September 8. However, if you desire a one-night stay, please call us. Single nights are sometimes "orphaned" between other bookings, and may become available.

All room rates are for double occupancy. Extra guests are $25 per night per person. Maximum room occupancies are listed on the "Rooms & Rates" page of our website.

Multiple Room Bookings
We limit the number of rooms booked for a stay to four (wedding, family reunion or other group stay) unless you have made other arrangements with the innkeepers. Sometimes the entire inn is available for an event - please call us.

Discounted Stays
Your stay is charged in full upon booking and no refunds will be given if cancelled.
