The Things You Need to Know

Cancellations: Because of our size, cancellations affect us significantly. For any cancellation or change of dates, we must receive 14 days* notice prior to your confirmed arrival for a refund of your deposit, less a $25 fee per room.  If any cancellation is made within 14 days*, regardless of the reason, your deposit will be non-refundable.  You are always welcome to send a friend or family member in your place.  

If any change of dates (including shortening a reservation) is requested within 14 days*, regardless of the reason, a one-time change is permitted, subject to availability and minimum stay restrictions.  There is a $75 fee for this change and your deposit becomes non-refundable.  After check-in, a shortened stay will remain charged in full per the original reservation. 

*A 60 Day cancellation period applies to all reservations for Christmas Prelude weekends. For group reservations of four rooms or more, please refer to the group contract for the applicable cancellation policy

Travel Insurance: We realize that cancellations are often beyond your personal control. For this reason we recommend purchasing travel insurance for peace of mind. The Captain Fairfield Inn will be happy to supply your travel insurance company with any needed documentation regarding our policy and your reservation. For insurance information please visit
