GENERAL INFORMATION

1) We rent by the week SATURDAY TO SATURDAY.
2) A deposit is required within 7 days to hold your reservation. Refund of deposits can only be made if we are successfully in re-renting the entire period.
3) All of our rental rates are subject to a 9% Maine lodging tax.
4) Balance due upon arrival.
5) Our housekeeping cottages are now smoke-free. Smoking is not permitted inside at any time.
6) We have found that many of our guests are allergic to pets, so we regrettably have concluded that we can not accommodate any pets.
7) Each apartment at the Aldernest Cottage can accommodate four people comfortably. We do count children, including infants, as part of the total occupancy.
8) We do have plenty of blankets and pillows but we do ask people to bring their own sheets and towels. We do have the option of an additional $50.00 fee if you can not do so.
