Our Policies


Rates are based on single/double occupancy except for Friends & Family Suite. A few rooms can accommodate an additional twin bed for an additional $25 per night. All rates are subject to lodging taxes: State 6%; County 5%. A credit card is required to secure the reservation and will be charged upon your arrival. Reservations made less than ten (10) days before arrival must be paid in full when the reservation is made and are non-refundable. We gladly accept American Express, Discover, MasterCard, and Visa.


Plans can charge unexpectedly. If you must cancel your reservation, please try to do so at least eleven (11) days before your arrival date.  Cancellations made less than eleven (11) days before your arrival will result in partial refund of the balance owed-only if we were able to re-rent the room. Cancellations must be in writing and are not effective until received by the Inn. Please Note: No refunds available during Holiday weeks, Medieval Congress (May), College Graduations (April/June), USTA Boys Tennis Championships (August), National Street Rod Car Show (September), and College Reunions (October).


For the comfort and enjoyment of all guests, pets can be accommodated only in the second floor of the Carriage House, and only with prior approval and in accordance with our Pet Policy


For the comfort and enjoyment of all guests, children under 12 can be accommodated in the Carriage House, and at times in the Friends and Family Suite on the third floor. Please contact the Innkeeper for further details and information.


Check in is between 4p.m. and 7p.m. Just can’t wait to start your visit? Add Priority Check-in ($25) to your reservation and we’ll sneak you in 2 hours early at 2pm. Don’t need the room? Feel free to park in our lot as early as noon (no charge), walk to town, tour the college, or meet up with that friend at her favorite coffee shop. Join us at our regular check in time. Won’t be able to make it by 7pm? A later check-in may be possible, but only with prior arrangement and may include a convenience fee. Please contact the Innkeeper if arrangements need to be made to accommodate flight delays or other unforeseen conditions. Check out is 11a.m. 

COVID-19 Update: We prefer to welcome you personally and will be masked and keep a safe distance of 6 feet when we greet you. There is plenty of room in our B&B for everyone to socially distance.

When you enter, please use the hand sanitizer on the entry podium before you proceed further.  We continue to run credit cards on arrival through a payment device that does not require us to touch your card.  If you prefer, you may call us before your arrival to complete payment over the phone.  You will be shown your room, and the sanitized room key will be in the door of your room.  Your room will have been vacant for at least 24 hours before your arrival. Hand sanitizer has been placed in your room.


Complimentary off-street parking is available behind the Inn. There is no smoking in the Inn (that includes e-cigarettes). Breakfast is served in the dining room between 7am and 9am weekdays, and between 8am and 10am weekends and Holidays.

 COVID-19 Update:  We continue to offer a full breakfast prepared with fresh local ingredients customized to your dietary needs.  Breakfast is served in our main dining room or on our outdoor patio in good weather.  Should our guest count require it, we will have two breakfast settings to accommodate social distancing as the minimum distance between any breakfast tables at the B&B is 6 feet.



We reserve the right to charge guests the cost of rectifying damage, caused by the guest’s deliberate, negligent or reckless act; and to charge for the cost of replacing any items that are removed from the premises by the guest without consent. Should damage or removal of property come to light after the guest has departed, we reserve the right to make a charge to the guest’s credit / debit card, or send an invoice for the amount to the registered address. In the case of damage, we will make every effort to rectify any damage internally prior to contracting specialists to make the repairs, and thereby keep any costs that the guest would incur to a minimum. In the case of missing items, the charge will be the full replacement amount of the missing item, including any carriage charges.


Although we are in the United States, we take all appropriate steps to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) adopted by the European Union. As such, anyone who books accommodations at the Stuart Avenue Inn can be assured that we do not, never have, and never will, share any guest’s personal data with anyone –PERIOD! Submission of your personal data as required to confirm a reservation authorizes us to use that data in the course of our relationship. More specifically, when you furnish your email address to us, you agree to receive communications from us relative to your reservation and any issues that arise during the course of our relationship. By continuing to use our website, Facebook page, or any of our OTA partners, you acknowledge and agree to abide by our updated Privacy Policy.
