North Shore Lodge Policies

General Policies:

By providing us with credit card deposit information you are agreeing to the following:

Cancellation Policy

Cancellations made 30 days or more prior to the first day of your stay entitle you to a full refund. A credit for a future stay will be granted for cancellations made less than 30 days in advance, but prior to 24 hrs. We are happy to move your reservation to different units or to different dates, based on availability, with at least 24hrs notice. If you cancel any part of your reservation within 24hrs of our check-in time of 3PM, we will process the entire amount of your bill and only issue a credit for a future stay for days we’re able to re-rent the room.

Group Cancellations

We have a 30 day cancellation policy. If cancellations are made within 30 days of your scheduled stay, no refunds will be given. Groups will get full credit toward a future stay, for any amount paid in advance as follows: 1 day notice per the greater of either 1) the number of units or 2) the number of nights booked. (Example: If you book 5 units for 7 nights, we need at least 7 day notice. If you book 10 units for 3 nights, we need at least 10 day notice.) For cancellations made with less notice, all fees will be processed. Credit for a future stay will only be granted for room-nights we’re able to re-book.

Guest Responsibilities

The booking guest is responsible for any and all damage and fines for breach of policy in all units booked. Guests who do not abide by our rules are subject to removal from the property and are not entitled to a refund. Please report violations of rules to the North Shore Lodge staff.

Thank you for helping keep the floors clean by using the boot trays for your pet's food and water.
