Inn at Cook Street Policies

The Inn at Cook Street is a non-smoking and no pet resort. We welcome guests 16 years of age or older.

We recommend before making a reservation request that you thoroughly read all of our policies which are explained in great detail on this page. It is important for you to understand our Cancellation, Minimum Stay, Deposit and Payment terms before making your reservation. We recommend if you have any questions regarding any of our policies that you contact one of us at (508) 487-3894 or (888) COOK-655.

Deposit and Payment Terms

The deposit required to confirm your reservation is equal to 50% of the total stay. One night stays are charged the full amount (plus the 11.7% MA room tax). Visa, Master Card, and American Express are all accepted. All deposits and payments are due in U.S. funds only. NOTE: Personal Checks are accepted for all reservations made more than 2 months in advance. Personal checks are only accepted for advanced deposits or full pre-payment. The balance of the room is due upon arrival. We only accept credit cards as method of payment.

Cancellation Policy

We realize that your vacation time is very precious to you and our main desire is to make you feel right at home during your stay. Unfortunately, unexpected changes do occur. Therefore our cancellation and/or early departure policy is as follows with NO EXCEPTIONS: Your deposit is refundable UP TO 21 days prior to your scheduled arrival date less 10% of your deposit or $75 dollars, whichever is greater for administrative costs. Deposits on a reservation cancelled at any time prior to a stay during June, July, August, September or over Major Holiday Periods or any other special event period are NON REFUNDABLE unless we are able to re-let your room for the entire booking minus a $75 cancellation fee. Deposits on rooms cancelled LESS than 21 days of the scheduled arrival date, cannot be refunded or transferred regardless of the reason for cancellation. The entire deposit is forfeited as the agreed upon late cancellation fee. The same is true for stays that are shortened or for early departures. Within 21 days the deposit minus 10% is only refundable if room is re-rented.

As there are no refunds due to medical or family emergencies, bad weather, missed or cancelled flights or ferry reservations, change of plans, etc. We highly recommend considering PURCHASING TRIP INSURANCE available from any agent or online at
