Reservations may require a three or two night minimum stay based on the Inn calendar.

Three night minimum stays are required beginning Memorial Day weekend through and including the entire month of September. If less than the three night minimum is available for any given room, it may be booked for one or two nights, depending on what is available.

Two night minimum stays are required for all weekends throughout the year other than specified above. Weekends are defined as Friday night, Saturday night and Sunday night.
