Cancellation Policy

As a small property, cancellations affect us greatly. Our Cancellation Policy has been thought out carefully, and is a vital part of managing our small property.  Please read this section carefully.   In the unfortunate situation where you need to cancel your reservation:

Upon signing this lease agreement, Tenant is financially responsible for making all related payments until said lease agreement is terminated/cancelled.

In the event the Tenant wishes to terminate/cancel the fully signed lease agreement, Tenant shall make such request in writing to A Blissful Cottage LLC, Attn:  Marc and Donna, 436 S Main Street, Centerville, MA  02632.

The lease shall be terminated/cancelled only after another Tenant is secured for the cancelled rental period(s).  Once the property is re-rented for the cancelled period(s), a refund less $100.00 service fee per 1 week reservation period cancelled will be made without loss to A Blissful Cottage LLC.

Although we sympathize with life’s unexpected turns, WE RECOMMEND YOU PURCHASE TRIP INSURANCE if you are worried about protecting yourself from an occurrence that might cause you a late cancellation.  IE:  flight delays, inclement weather, or family emergency.

State & Local Taxes

Taxes will be added to our stated rates charged for the Cottage at the tax rates currently required by the respective governments.

Check-­in time is 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM. Please notify the hosts if you anticipate arrival after 6:00 PM, so late arrival arrangements may be made. Check­-out time is by 10:00 AM.
