The Culpepper Inn is an AIRBNB SELF-HELP property where every guest reservation is both important and special to us. WE ARE NOT A FULL-SERVICE B&B AND THEREFORE OUR RATES ARE SUBSTANTIALLY LESS.
WITH NO EXCEPTIONS: Room reservations require 2 weeks notice. Anything less than two weeks for ANY reason, the guest is held responsible for the entire reservation unless we are able to re-book all or part. We make every effort to do so. We do not trade dates for a cancellation.
Room reservations of more than 3 rooms or long-term guest reservations require 30 days notice to cancel. Long-term guests are provided discounted rates due to the length of their stay. If they choose to shorten the stay after the agreed to rate, their rate reverts to the rate BASED ON THE ACTUAL LENGTH OF THEIR STAY.
Special event cancellations like weddings or parties require 30 days cancellation.
IF YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT OUR CANCELLATION POLICY, WE RECOMMEND THE USE OF AFFORDABLE TRIP INSURANCE OFFERED BY MANY VENDORS.(THIS SITE HAS SOME FAIRLY INEXPENSIVE OPTIONS www.insuremytrip.com).

“We love families and children but not every guest feels the same about sharing their vacation space. For this reason we have the advantage of organizing our venue to accommodate different needs. The 4 rooms in the Main Inn and the Main Inn itself are adult only . If the Main Inn is under contract for an event, children may attend with adult constant supervision. The 7 other rooms outside the Main Inn all accommodate children over 12, as do all of our shared common areas outside the Main Inn.”
We are pet lovers ourselves and recognize it is sometimes difficult to plan a trip without them. We MAY allow one pet per guest room in two particular rooms for one night, subject to availability and number of guests on site in the low season only, Nov 1-March 31. Those rooms are the Carriage House Suite and Balcony Room. There is a $100 deposit and non-refundable $50 pet fee. Pets are only allowed in guest rooms, must be in a kennel and may not be left unattended in the rooms AT ALL. Guests must walk pets off the property and clean-up after them. You MUST call & request a pet reservation as our allowance for pets is limited. No pet will be accommodated without advance permission. We do not make exceptions to our pet policies for emotional support animals.
GIFT CERTIFICATE POLICIES
Gift certificates must be presented at check-in and are transferable. Any remaining amount on gift certificates can be used at a later day up to the expiration date. Gift certificates cannot be redeemed for cash.
