You can fill out the Contact Us form on our website or submit an application using our Apply page or via email to start the reservation process. If your application is approved, you will be sent a contract and invoice that will indicate all charges for your group.

The reservation deposit is typically due approximately two months prior to your contracted check-in date. The full payment will be due approximately one month before your contracted check-in date. If your application is approved, the exact payment deadlines will be indicated on your contract.

The security deposit is refunded if there are no added charges for damaged or missing items (e.g. missing or stained linen, missing or damaged keys, damage to the rooms or other building facilities). If necessary, fees will be added to your account and the security deposit will be used to pay for the charges. Once all necessary charges are added to your account, the remaining security deposit money will be returned, approximately 8 to 10 weeks after departure. If there are no added charges during your stay, the entire security deposit will be refunded approximately 8 to 10 weeks after departure.

Please email us as soon as possible so we can start the cancellation process. If the cancellation is after the reservation deposit and/or final payment due date, there is a cancellation fee.
