Reservation Deposits

Reservations are based upon one or two persons (above the age of 12) per room. A valid credit card books your reservation. Deposits are discussed with bookings.  Remember, if you book directly through our web site, we can better assist with your requests and you always find the best pricing.


We certainly understand that changes in plans do occur in our mobile society.  As a small inn, we trust that you understand our need for ample notice of cancellation.   If you must cancel, kindly do so promptly.  If a cancellation is not received 7 days in advance (holidays, special events, or rental of three rooms require a 14 day cancellation), you will be charged for the entire reservation and receive a gift certificate for those rooms/nights to be used at a later date.  As a small luxury property, we do not hold rooms.   A full-house booking is paid in full at the time of booking.  Any refund for a full-house booking will be in the form of a gift certificate.

We are a non-smoking Inn.  Specific garden areas are available for our guests to smoke.  Smoking anywhere inside Bloomsbury results in an automatic $250.00 cleaning fee.  In addition, initiating a flame inside Bloomsbury carries a $250.00 liability fee.


Each guest room hosts a decanter of sherry or port.  Wine, limited menu, is available at afternoon social.  Glassware and ice are always available.


Although we are pet friendly, we do not accept pets or therapy animals traveling with guests.  Fully trained service animals are always welcome.  There are plenty of birds, squirrels, bunnies, camellias and butterflies to entertain your “pet” craving.  On a very cold morning in December 2010, a beautiful orange and white cat adopted our front verandah as her new home.  Miss Kitty Stray is sure to be awaiting your arrival; but, please do not let her inside the inn.
