Minimum Night Requirements

We ask for THREE to FOUR nights minimum booking at our All Dream Cottages during our Dream/HIGH Season* (depending on our calendar and previous bookings).  We have a 2 nights minimum at our cottages the remainder of the year.  This policy is trumped by availability and your booking flexibility.  

We ask for TWO to THREE nights minimum booking at our Kingfish Inn during our HIGH Season* (depending on our calendar and previous bookings);  We have a 2 nights minimum at our Inn the remainder of the year.  This policy is trumped by availability and your booking flexibility.  


ONE-NIGHT-HOLE (High Season)
During some of our DREAM and throughout our HIGH season we WILL NOT accept bookings that create unbookable "ONE-NIGHT-HOLES" in front/back of the booking request. When this occurs, we ask that you please consider moving your dates, adding to your booking or change your lodging choice to to prevent cancellation.  We understand that schedules are not always flexible and that a change is not always possible.  In that instance, we ask that you bookmark us for another time or CALLus as soon as possible.  There may be a creative solution to your scheduling challenge.  


We frown on OVER-BOOKING. If you book 5 days and call to cancel one night after we have taken reservations around you, we may ask that you cancel your entire stay or cancel two nights instead,  rather than be left with an undesirable ONE NIGHT hole in our schedule.



Please understand that we cannot hold multiple units for possible "future" guests. We are happy to be listed as a resource for weddings and other events. However, we cannot confirm a reservation without payment.



While we welcome children at the cottages as noted above.  However, we ask that you understand that all of our cottages have been furnished and decorated to be "dream" homes away from home. Complete "child proofing" is not compatible with this decorating philosophy.


Moreover, our waterfront properties are "absolute" waterfront and require parents to exercise extra care. It is no fun for you or your children if you must continually warn them about falling into the water.  Day Dream Farm with acres of pasture to run on is ideal for children.  Our Waveside Dream Cottage is fenced (almost invisible) so no fear of falling into the water here.   


Since you know your children best, we ask that you exercise your judgement when booking. Please choose a cottage with the best interest of your children in mind. 



We welcome your pet during our "Quiet" and "Secret" Seasons at our Isle Dream and Sea Dream Cottages
