We want to make sure your experience is as magical and relaxing as possible! Here are answers to some frequently asked questions.
1. Parking and Wifi?
We have free parking on site. Either on the side of the house or out front. :) High-speed wifi reaching the entire house.
2. What is your Cancellation Policy?
Guests can cancel a reservation free of charge 10 or more days prior to check-in time.
Canceling your reservation 1 to 10 days prior to check-in will result in a 20% charge of the reservation total.
In the event of a no show or day-of check-in cancellation, total cost of the reservation will be billed to your credit card.
***Please remember this is not a chain hotel.*** Our livelihood depends on occupancy of 6 rooms. We understand that everything in life can be unpredictable, but cancelling your reservation disrupts the flow of our small business.
3. How is this different from a hotel or bed and breakfast?
Tree House is a unique space. It has hotel amenities, bed and breakfast charm, and a community feel that you would experience in many hostels abroad. While we can't choose our guests, the right ones usually choose us :) Creative and health conscious humans tend to find themselves here. Don't be shy! Make a new friend during your stay- or enjoy the privacy of your own space and private bath.
$40 fee. This is a dog (and cat) friendly house! We love our cuddly companions and do our best to accommodate travelers with furry sidekicks. Dogs are allowed with understanding that they will not be left alone to bark and disturb other guests. The tiny innkeeper, Tree, runs freely around the house so pets that are social is a must.
Unlike a chain hotel, there is not a front desk or staff on call 24-7. You will be given the door code and room info prior to your stay and likely be greeted by sweet Tree, Renny, or another lovely human in the Tree House Crew.
6. Are you handicap accessible?
Unfortunately, we do not have an elevator and all guest rooms are located on the top level of Tree House.
7. Bed and Yoga?
Yoga every damn day! There are open rooms to practice in and group classes every Wednesday. There are various wellness activities that take place here such as sound baths, meditation workshops, and dance classes. You are not required to be a yogi to stay here, but you might leave as one :)
8. How far from Airport?
15 minute drive
9. How many guests per room?
A few rooms can accommodate three guests with a queen bed and daybed or futon. If you would like to stay with a crew, give us a call and we will figure out a way to make it work!
10. How many rooms are available for rent?
11. Tree House Etiquette
Damage: If something gets damaged, broken or otherwise, don’t hide it. Let us know what happened soon as you can. Especially if a spill, like a glass of red wine, and we can take care of it quickly so there aren’t any permanent stains. Just like you would if you were at a friends’ house. Innkeepers know that accidents happen. That being said, try to use some common sense in trying to prevent damage. Leaving a dripping bottle on the antique table or using one of their white towels to wipe off your makeup would not be appreciated. We will be would be more than happy to provide you necessary items. Just ask!
Courtesy: It is our responsibility to clearly communicate what we expect of and offer our guests. We also expect that our guests will be clear in asking for what they need to make their stay the most enjoyable. For instance, if you know you will be arriving late, make a courtesy call and find out what you should do. We don’t have the 24-hour staff of a chain hotel. Think of it more like you are staying with friends. We ask that if something isn’t right, that you let us know so we have the opportunity to make it right. That may not always be possible, but we will do our very best! As our livelihood relies on guest satisfaction and positive reviews, give the innkeeper a chance to address any concerns if they arise! Namaste beautiful humans.
