A few Alma House policies to know about:

  • We realize that life and the weather are unpredictable, but we do not assume responsibility for either. Please be sure of your plans before booking. As a small Inn dealing almost exclusively with advance reservations, date changes and cancellations affect us significantly.

  • We ask that you carefully consider our Policy and House Rules before making a reservation. Reservation confirmation indicates an acceptance and agreement to Policies and House Rules.

  • Check-in time is between 3pm and 10pm. Requests for a later arrival must be made in advance by phone call.  If you are arriving by train please let us know so we can make arrangements for you,  if possible, for an early check-in.

  • We are pleased to accept well-behaved dogs at the Inn with advance arrangements. We require a signed pet policy agreement and a per night pet fee. Dogs are not allowed in the dining room during breakfast and may not be locked in your room while you are off premises.  Persistent barking will result in us asking you to leave.

  • We are also pleased to accept WELL-BEHAVED children. We expect them to behave as little gentlemen and ladies while inside the Alma House.

  • Screeching, screaming and running down halls is unacceptable.  Manners matter. 

  • The hot tub is available from 9am to 10pm for registered guests only. Hot tub use is not recommended for small children.

Guest rooms and other indoor areas are always smoke-free. Smoking, or evidence of smoking, inside the Inn will result in an immediate request to leave and an additional cleaning fee of $250.

  • Our quiet hours are from 10pm to 7am. If you enter the Inn between these hours, please be mindful of other guests that are sleeping.
