POLICIES

Please read and review the terms and conditions of Stone Lion Vineyard Bed and Breakfast's Rental Agreement and Reservation Confirmation to ensure all information including your check in and check out dates are correct.

CHECK IN/CHECK OUT: Your rental period begins at 4 p.m. on the day of arrival and ends at 11 a.m. on the day of departure, unless you have purchased the early check in or late check out option and have received email confirmation that the option(s) is available. Requesting early check in or late check out at the time of reservation does not guarantee availability.

Early check ins or late departures without prior payment and approval will incur an extra charge of $75.

DEPOSIT AND PAYMENT: A $25 per room non-refundable deposit is required at the time of booking. The remaining balance becomes due 14 days prior to your arrival date. Reservations made 14 days or less before your stay will be charged the full amount at the time of booking.

After your initial deposit, your credit card will be kept on file in order to automatically recharge the card the final payment amount, 14 days prior to your stay.

Rates and policies are based on double or fewer occupancy only and are subject to change at any time.

CANCELLATION: Cancellations received before 4:00 pm on the 15th day prior to your arrival will be refunded in full minus the $25 per-room non-refundable deposit.

All cancellations received 14 days or less prior to your scheduled date of arrival will be charged for the full dates/balance of your reservation including any add-ons.

It is our primary desire and goal to have our guests join us as scheduled, however cancellations greatly affect a small Bed and Breakfast like ours. Stone Lion Bed and Breakfast, unlike most hotels, does not over book our room inventory nor do we have a lot of rooms to offer like a hotel. When we guarantee an accommodation, we enter into a contract with our guests, that your room will not be booked to another party. We remove that room from our available inventory thus losing the opportunity to sell it to others and guaranteeing you the particular room of your choice; that is why it is important for the guarantee to be honored both ways. Because we will strictly adhere to our policy, we strongly recommend travel insurance for the unexpected life event.

If we are able to re-book your room for the full dates of your original reservation, we will refund your reservation less the $25 deposit.

A request to change the date or move a reservation may be honored at the discretion of the innkeeper. Such a request will incur a re-booking fee of $25 being assessed as this may also result in the loss of revenue for the original date and room booked, guaranteed and taken out of inventory.

CREDIT CARD AUTHORIZATION: I understand and consent to the use of the credit card provided without original signature on the charge slip, that an email of this agreement will serve as an original, and that this Credit Card Authorization cannot be revoked and will not terminate until 30 days after the rental is vacated. Additional charges may include excessive cleaning fees or damages beyond normal wear and tear.

LIABILITY: Stone Lion Vineyard Bed and Breakfast adheres to the Minnesota Innkeepers' Law (Minn. Stat. 327.731) pertaining to intentional or negligent damage to the B&B.

AGE RESTRICTION: All renters must be at least 21 years of age. Proof of ID's may be requested at time of reservation. If a guest is found to have falsified their reservation in any way, we reserve the right to evict the guest, cancel their reservation and retain all deposits paid to that point.

REGISTERED GUESTS ONLY: Only Registered Guests are permitted in the rooms. However, a single (1 person) registered guest who booked a room may have one unregistered guest in that room for a total of two people. If more than two (2) people in a room is desired, prior arrangements must be made in writing with Stone Lion and approval from Stone lion received.

COMMERCIAL FILMING: Commercial filming is not permitted in the room(s) or on the property without prior written approval.

NO SMOKING: Smoking or vaping is not permitted inside Stone Lion. A $250 cleaning fee will be charged if evidence is found in the home. Smoking is permitted outside. All debris will be disposed of properly by the guest and not brought into the house.

SHOES: Because we have super plush carpet for our guests, shoes are not permitted to be worn in the rooms. Slippers that have not been outside are acceptable.

CANDLES AND FLAMES: Open flames or candles are not permitted in the rooms. We provide beautiful electronic candles in each suite.

SEVERE WEATHER: We do not refund rents or deposits lost due to cancelled or shortened stays because of weather. Departures due to inclement weather do no warrant a refund of rent or deposit. We suggest purchasing Vacation Travel Insurance for the unexpected event.

REFUNDS: The Rental Agreement is a legally binding agreement between the Guest and Stone Lion Vineyard Bed and Breakfast.

We will make every attempt to correct any problem that arises during your stay in a timely manner.

PET POLICIES: At this time Stone Lion does not allow any pets or animals on the property. Because we reside on the property and have less than five rooms (we have 2) for rent, we fall outside the requirements for ADA compliance. We are sorry but we do not allow service animals or emotional support animals. We are happy to help you find alternative lodging if you give us a call.

PARKING: Stone Lion has a private, lighted parking lot for guests. Stone Lion is not responsible for any loss or theft both inside and outside the house. No Campers, Boats, Trailers or other Recreational Vehicles are allowed without written approval by Stone Lion.
