Our Policies

Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our policies and house rules.

We look forward to serving you and hope you enjoy your stay at the Stanton House Inn while we strive to maintain the level of service for which we have become known.

Check In/Check Out Times

Check-in starts at 3 pm until 9 pm. If you’ll be arriving after this time, please contact us so we can make the necessary arrangements to receive you. Check-out time is anytime before 11am. If you’d like to check-out later, please check with the Front Desk.

We also offer an opportunity to extend your stay and arrive early and leave late. If you’re interested, check out our vacation specials and packages page.


For weekend and holiday stays, we require a one-night deposit charged at the time of booking. For stays longer than 7 days, we require a two-night deposit. Stays ten days to a week in length require a three-night deposit while longer stays require four nights.

Cancellations made after the previously established cancellation date result in forfeiture of the deposit.

Cancellation Policy

The Stanton House Inn has a limited number of rooms—cancellations affect us immensely. More often than not, a last-minute cancellation gives us little chance of re-booking the room. Due to this problem, we strictly uphold our policy.

Notice of cancellation requirements:
Weekday Reservations require 48 hours prior to arrival notice of cancellation.
Weekend and seven-night reservations require seven days notice of cancellation prior to arrival. Stays longer than seven nights require at least fourteen days notice of cancellation

We make every effort to accommodate all lodging requests. If we need to change your reservation, we either upgrade or move guests to a room with similar amenities.

Untimely cancellation will incur:
One night fee for stays up to three nights long
Two-night fee for stays from four to nine nights long
One week fee for stays of ten nights or longer

Administrative Fee:
All confirmed reservations cancelled prior to the above policy period are subject to an Administrative Fee equivalent to 10% of the charge for the nights cancelled (with a minimum charge of $20 per room-night cancelled).

We strongly suggest our guests obtain travel insurance should they not want to risk paying any fees associated with our cancellation policy, to which they agreed in order to make a room reservation.

Minimum Stays

Weekends and Holidays have minimum stay requirements: 2-night minimums when booked in advance.A one-night reservation request may be made for a  two-night minimum stay period during the week prior (starting the Monday before and subject to availability). Call us for a potential policy exception.


Weekend and holiday reservations require a deposit to be charged upon confirmation. A one-night deposit is charged for weekend stays. A two-night deposit is charged for all holiday stays.

Any deposit is non-refundable for cancellations falling within the policy period explained above or no-shows. Deposits on timely cancelled weekend bookings will be refunded less the Administrative Fee deduction.

Cancellations of holiday reservations before the cancellation date will result in the refund of one night, less the $20 Administrative Fee, and the forfeiture of the other night.

Deposits are applied to a reservation’s last night’s stay.

A minimum gratuity may be added to multiple-night or weekend reservations and group bookings.

We require a two-night minimum stay for holidays. A two-night minimum deposit is charged on booking for all holiday stays. We require two week’s notice of cancellation for holidays. Cancellations made before the two-week period will result in a refund of one night minus 10% or $20, whichever is higher. The other night deposit is non-refundable. Days of the year we consider holidays are: Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, American Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, and Thanksgiving.

No-shows, late check-ins, and early check-outs are responsible for payment of the missed nights.
