reservation and cancellation policy
A valid credit card number is needed to take a reservation. This is to hold and guarantee the room. NO BITCOINS, you hipsters!
We understand that cancellations are sometimes unavoidable – trust us, we’ve been there. If a reservation is cancelled before 10am on day of arrival, we will not charge any fees or assess any penalties. If the reservation is canceled after that time, or is a straight up no-show, we will charge for that first night’s stay if we are unable to find another guest to replace the lost reservation.
For reservations exceeding four days or in excess of $400 we reserve the right to require a non-refundable deposit equal to 25% of the total bill. The deposit will be applied to the final total amount of the reservation.
Our house is beautifully restored and designed but there's no getting away from the fact that it's nearly 125 years old. It can't really sustain a bunch of people in a room. The occupancy limit for each guest room is 2 persons. Guests may be received on the first floor for a reasonable, limited time.
The Baker is a non-smoking property. Designated outdoor smoking areas are available. Basically, keep it away from others who don’t smoke. There is a $250 room recovery fee for guests who do not comply with the no-smoking policy, in order to cover the extensive cost of restoring guest rooms to a smoke-free condition.
We think kids are kind of necessary for the survival of our species. They are welcome at The Baker and we have pack-n-plays, cribs, car seats and strollers available upon request. We ask that our younger guests be respectful of our older guests … and vice-versa.
We charge all local and state taxes. We like not going to jail.
We don’t have keys so if you lose them you have bigger problems.
Pets are allowed in designated rooms only, and the animal policy is as follows:
A $15 per pet fee, per night applies.
Pets must be well socialized around people and other animals; all dogs must be on a monthly flea preventive.
Animals must be fully housebroken, and dogs must be kept on a non-retractable leash at all times when outside of the guest room.
Dogs must be crated any time they are left unattended (crate not provided).
All pets must be up to date on immunizations.
You must clean up after your pet inside and outside, and dogs may not be leashed/attached to the outdoor furniture.
If your pet causes damage, you are fully responsible for cleaning fee, repair and/or replacement.
Preferably, only one pet per room, email us any specific requests for more.
Animals in a room not designated for such an accommodation will be charged a cleaning fee of $250.
