We will respond promptly to your inquiry with our availability and answer any questions you may have about the rooms. Once we have responded, a reservation may be completed via email.
When a reservation is made we do require an advance deposit to be made via credit card for each cottage reserved. For reservations of two nights we ask for $125.00 for the Studio and $150.00 for Breidablick. For reservations of 3 nights or more, a 45% deposit of the rate for the entire stay is required. All deposits will go towards your stay.
Once deposits are made you will receive written conformation of your stay along with basic information about the farm and Vermont.
Should you cancel outside of 30 days prior to arrival, your deposit will be refunded, less a $50 administration fee. Should you cancel within 30 days, your entire deposit will be forfeited unless we can rebook your room so it does not result in a loss of business.
