MINIMUM STAY REQUIREMENTS: Advance reservations for weekends and anytime between June 18, 2021 - October 31, 2021 generally require a minimum stay of two nights. From July 30, 2021 through August 7, 2021 (Coast Guard Festival) our minimum stay requirement is five nights. "Walk-ins" will be accepted on a one night basis if we have availability.
DEPOSITS & CANCELLATION POLICY: For advance reservations of 5 nights or longer, a non-refundable deposit in the amount of $350.00 per room will be required at the time the reservation is made. For stays of less than 5 nights, a non-refundable deposit equal to the amount of the first night's room charges per room reserved will be required at the time the reservation is made. Reservations are not guaranteed until the deposit is paid. The deposit will be applied to the cost of the stay, however it is non-refundable if you cancel. Any remaining balance will be due upon arrival. No adjustments will be made for shortened stays. Reducing the length of the stay or modifications of dates constitutes a cancellation and is subject to this cancellation policy. All cancellations require notification by phone or email at least 48 hours prior to your scheduled arrival date and require acknowledgement of the cancellation otherwise in addition to the forfeiture of your deposit you may be responsible for 100% of the remaining balance. Failing to call or show before checkout time after the first night of a reservation will not only result in the forfeiture of your deposit, but will also result in the cancellation of the remainder of your reservation and you will be charged 100% of the remaining balance. A $30.00 fee will be charged for returned checks.
ROOM OCCUPANCY: Rates are based on standard occupancy as noted in each room description and subject to 6% state use tax and a 2% local lodging assessment. If the number of guests will exceed the standard occupancy of the room/suite you must get pre approval from Bluewater Inn management. An additional $30.00 per person per day may be charged.
CHECK IN time is 4:00 p.m.
CHECK OUT time is 11:00 a.m. Arrangements may be made for late departures, subject to availability and only with prior management approval.
