We want to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. To ensure that you will have a very pleasant experience at the Inn on the Green, we have established the following policies. Please take a few minutes to review these policies, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
Hosts & Guests
There is an innkeeper on site from 7 am-9 pm. We do not have staff concierges, porters, servants, bellboys, travel agents, personal assistants at our inn as we are not a hotel. We are a small town Vermont inn providing our guests with a home away from home experience.
Room rates include a full complimentary breakfast. Guests are invited to visit our lounge and enjoy daily snacks, cookies, tea and coffee. Rates are quoted per night excluding tax (10%).
Prices may vary from outdated quotes on other websites, and only rates as published on the Inn’s website are guaranteed. Only one discount or promotion can be applied at a time.
A single night stay deposit will be charged to your credit card at the time of making your reservation. The balance will be charged to your card the day of your arrival.
All reservations must be guaranteed with a credit card regardless of how the final payment will be made. We accept MC, Visa, and AmEx credit cards and Gift Certificates. Guests who wish to pay the remainder of their balance in cash must have a valid credit card on file at the time of booking for incidentals such as extra charges and damages.
If you are redeeming an Inn on the Green gift certificate, the number must be provided at the time of making your reservation. In the event of a no-show or late cancellation, the gift certificate will be applied and any remaining balance charged to your card. Gift certificates expire one year from date of issue. Any balance left on the certificate is forfeited if not used by the expiration date and no refunds will be issued.
Middlebury College event weekends have a minimum requirement for nights. A two night minimum is required for Fall Family Weekend bookings and a three night minimum is required for Commencement Weekend.
Folding cot beds are available only for some guestrooms for $15.00 per night. Please alert us on your reservation if you are in need of a folding cot.
By completing a reservation at the Inn on the Green, you acknowledge that you have read and accept Inn on the Green’s Policies, Terms, and Conditions, and house rules in their entirety on behalf of all persons staying with us as part of your reservation.
Reservations with four or more rooms on the same date are considered group bookings with the following additional policies:
- A one month cancellation policy is required for multiple room booking. If cancellation does not occur within a 30 day notice each room reserved will be charged a cancellation fee at the rate of one nights stay.
- Incidental charges such as folding cots or pet fees must be paid by each group member prior to departure or the credit card used to secure payment will be used to settle any remaining charges.
- In order to improve the check in process, the Inn on the Green asks for the names and contact details of the guests at least 30 days prior to arrival.
- A single night deposit will be charged at time of booking.
- A minimum of two night stay is required.
- Whole house rentals must be paid in full 30 days in advance.
- Reservations for our premium weekends as listed below will also be charged to the credit card 30 days in advance of stay.
- A 10% discount applies to group bookings that reserve all 12 rooms for the same dates and time.
- Requester will be responsible for payment of any unfilled rooms that were blocked and not released 30 days prior to booking.
If you have a guaranteed reservation, the room will be held for you until 7:00 am the morning following your scheduled arrival. If you do not check in by that time, your reservation is considered a “no-show” and you will be charged the full amount of the reservation plus tax. The room you reserved is then available to other guests.
If your arrival is going to be delayed past 7:00 am the morning following your scheduled arrival, please contact the inn as soon as possible to avoid your reservation going in to “no-show.”
Making a reservation at a bed and breakfast is not the same as making a hotel reservation. Due to our small size, cancellations affect us significantly. We cannot make exceptions for weather or personal circumstances that cause a guest to cancel. A last minute cancellation gives us little chance of re-booking a room. For this reason we uphold a strict cancellation policy.
The cancellation deadline is 7 days prior to your scheduled arrival. If you cancel before the cancellation deadline, your deposit will be refunded less a $15 processing fee. If you cancel within 7 days of your arrival you will be responsible for the full balance of the reservation.
*Please note that cancellations will not be accepted via voicemail. You must cancel with an innkeeper or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so confirmation of the cancellation can be made.
Extended Stays- Salisbury Suite
For extended stays (More than three nights) we require a deposit of 20% on the total stay. If booking more than a 3 night stay a 25% discount to the daily rate will be applied. If booking more than a 7 night stay a 35% discount to the daily rate will be applied.
Our promise is to provide you with a fresh, clean room. Housekeeping services are scheduled based on the number of nights you will be staying with us.
- For stays eight nights or more: One “full service” housekeeping is provided each week. This will occur between the hours of 11:00 am and 1:00 pm on the eighth day of your stay. Additional full or refresh services are available as outlined below.
- For four nights to seven nights: Fresh towels and linens are available by requesting them from our innkeeper, as often as needed. Trash and recycling receptacles are located outside the entry door to the Salisbury Suite. It is the responsibility of the guest to empty their room’s trash if staying more than three nights.
Full Service (provided weekly) includes dusting, vacuuming, changing linens and towels, emptying trash, cleaning of bathroom and kitchen, and replenishing soap and toilet paper if needed.
Looking for a little more TLC? No problem! If you would like daily housekeeping, we can apply a $10 daily rate onto your room. Just make our innkeeper aware.
Check In/Check Out
Check-In is between 3:00 pm and 8:30 pm. Arrangements for late arrivals should be made in advance with the Innkeeper. Early arrivals without notice will not be accommodated. We strive to have everything as clean and tidy for each guest and need sufficient time to prepare rooms between stays. A $50 fee will be assessed on the final bill for urgency and extra housekeeping preparations related to unexpected arrivals. Please, no early drop-off of bags or in-room items unless prior arrangements are made.
Checkout time is at 11:00 a.m. If you need a late check out please coordinate this with our staff ahead of time. Guests are welcome to stay in our lounge area if they need to stay later then 11:00 am. A $50 fee will be applied for late check-outs.
Any damages, stolen items, or broken items occurring during the stay will be the full financial responsibility of the guest, including anyone traveling with the guest. Any special clean-up resulting in damages caused by the guests will be charged to the credit card. Charges may need to be applied after guest departure as deemed necessary by the Owner/Innkeeper. Robe replacement cost is $125 and towel replacement cost is $25.
Please report all spills and/or damages to the Innkeeper promptly.
