bed & breakfast etiquette

Bed and breakfasts are a much loved past time for travelers near and far. If you're new to bed and breakfasts, we're here to share a few tips and recommendations to help make your stay comfortable and memorable.

The Federal Inn, though it may operate as a bed and breakfast is still a historical home. We ask that all guests be respectful of the space. That includes being mindful of shared spaces and noise level. We understand sh*t happens, so in the event that spills or accidents occur, please let the innkeeper know as soon as possible.

To ensure a smooth check in, we ask guests to give us a head's up if their arrival time is running ahead or behind schedule.

If guests have dietary needs for breakfast, let us know at booking if possible. We want all guests to enjoy the gourmet breakfast!

Enjoying breakfast with other guests is a much loved perk of bed and breakfasts. However, if guests prefer to enjoy breakfast in their room, or skip breakfast or head over to a local cafe instead, that is alright with us, too!

cancellation policy

While life can be unpredictable and plans are subject to chance, we request a cancellation seven (7) days or more of the check-in date to guarantee a refund, less a $25 cancellation fee. Cancellations with less than a seven (7) day notice will result in the loss of your deposit. Reservations for all 3 rooms available have a 14 days cancellation policy, and a 50% non-refundable deposit taken at the time you make your reservation.
