House Rules & Cancellation Policy

The Cottage was built many years ago and so guest rooms are NOT equipped for the individuals with mobility challenges. We are sorry, but we are NOT wheelchair accessible.

No children or pets allowed.

This is a smoke-free Cottage. Smoking is not allowed in or around the Episcopal Cottage or on any of its porches.

  • No food can be stored or eaten in the guest rooms.
