Visiting Guests: With our pleasant, easy-going setting and ample toys at our beach, Northwind Lodge ends up being a natural attractant to other, non-registered guests who may be in visiting Northwind Lodge cabin rental guests coming in from other resorts. Non-registered guests may use Northwind Lodge beach toys for $25 per person depending on availability. Please notify the front desk of visiting non-registered day-guests so we don’t come looking.
New Guest Reservations (for current season)
Cabin deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable in the event of cancellation (unless we can re-book the cancelled cabin). However, we can certainly try to move your week(s) around during the current summer if you have any scheduling difficulty. New reservations for 2011 will require a $300 deposit for all guests, payable at the time of reservation.
Policy 1: A $200.00 deposit for cabins will become non-refundable in the event of a cancellation for any reason (if the cancelled cabin gets re-booked by another party, a deposit refund less a $50 administrative fee will be issued).
Policy 2: While we will no longer issue refunds for cabin reservation deposits, it is absolutely acceptable to move your reservation to another time within the same deposit-assigned season. Deposits made for the current year are no longer transferable to future years in the event of a cancellation; they are forfeited. A new deposit is then required to book a future year reservation.
While we prefer to keep things casual and dislike firm policies, it is in the best interest of our guests that we stay consistent and professional. Times and events change, and Northwind Lodge must adapt in a way that keeps us operational. We plan to stick around for the long haul, maintaining this resort as your favorite “home away from home” for many years to come!
Here’s to your good health, and we look forward to your coming up this summer!
