  /  Priority Check-In, Late Check-In and Leisurely Checkout

Are you arriving extra early for an appointment? Did you want an early start on your sightseeing? Are you just an early bird? Do you want to get the most out of your vacation by arriving at the top of the day? Then let us make you the Priority of Our Day by pre-arranging an early check-in. Guests who do not reserve a pre-arranged custom check-in time will be expected during regular check-in time, from 4:00pm-7:00pm when I will be here to greet you. Conversely, you may choose to use the keyless entry code you were sent via text/email any time after 4:00 pm.

However, guests who do prefer a custom check-in time, Priority Check-in can be easily arranged in advance for those guests who want to check in earlier or later, whatever the reason. You can choose between our most popular options:

Priority Check-in
Think you may find yourself arriving earlier and don’t want to wait until 4:00 pm check-in? Whether or not you know specifically when you’ll arrive that afternoon, you can pre-arrange a $25 Priority Check-in. You can arrive as early as 12:00 pm. No need to give us a specific time, I will have extra staff on hand to make sure your room is ready when you want it. And I will be available to check you in personally, if that is your preference. Did you book more than one room for your group? No worries. Just let us know. We can easily make that happen . . . $25 per room. To confirm your Priority Check-in, email me at

Please Note the Following:

  • If you want to drop off your luggage before 4:00p check-in, Priority Check-in must be pre-arranged. This ensures your possessions can be securely locked in your reserved room.
  • Spontaneously arriving earlier than 4:00 pm, cannot be accommodated at this time. Priority Check-in should be prearranged if you think you may be arriving earlier than 4:00 pm.
  • Arriving before 12:00 pm? You must book your room for the prior evening. Advise us of your scheduled arrival time, and you may arrive as early as 7:00 am. We’ll even make you breakfast!
  • Because of extra staffing requirement to accommodate your request, this option is non-refundable.

Late Check-in
Perhaps you have a schedule that can’t be rearranged. Did you get a later than preferred start? Perhaps you can’t get an earlier flight, or you think: why waste a vacation day to leave early? With advance notice, we can arrange a later than normal check-in time. This complimentary option is for guests wanting to check in later than 10:0) pm at no extra charge. We would appreciate your advising us in advance, to ensure access to your room. We’ll do our best to accommodate last minute notice. We do ask if you are checking in after 10:00 pm that you are quiet so you do not disturb other guests.

Leisurely Late Check-out
Normal check-out is no later than 11:00 am. However, if you would like a leisurely last day? Or perhaps you have a flight late in the day, and/or want to leave your bags for a later pick-up? Whatever the reason, you may arrange for a Leisurely Late Check-out. You will be able to keep access to your room, keep your luggage securely locked inside, keep your keys, return to retrieve any luggage, freshen up, etc. Is this a last-minute decision? Simply check availability at breakfast. Or even if you forget to check availability and enjoy this option anyway, we can easily add this to your charges at the following rates: check-out as late as 1:30 pm $30. Check-out after 2:00 pm is billed at the full room rate. To confirm your Leisurely Late Check-out and ensure availability, email me at If you’d like to leave your luggage for a later pick-up, you may leave your luggage on one of our porches. Leaving your luggage for later pick-up, outside on the wrap-around porch is complimentary. No notice is needed.

If at all possible, we will try to accommodate your check-in if outside our normal check in times. As this is based on availability factors, the earlier it’s arranged, the better. For your best success and to ensure we are here and can be ready for you, you are strongly encouraged to prearrange your custom check-in as soon as you know it, and within 48 hours of your arrival for best results, email me at:
