Cancellations – CV20
We recognize that (especially now) situations arise that make cancellations unavoidable. Unfortunately, last minute cancellations affect us significantly (especially now) and are all but impossible to fill.
Whether it is by choice, for your comfort, or due to mandate, reservations may be cancelled up to 72 hours prior to your arrival date, without penalty when you rebook your stay or when a voucher is issued. We are currently taking reservations through 2021.
Refunds – CV20
Reservations may be cancelled up to 72 hours prior to your arrival and without penalty *when you rebook your reservation or leave your full deposit on account to be used for a guest voucher or future stay. We are currently taking reservations through 2021.
All other cancellations will be handled as follows:
Reservations cancelled within 72 hours and not *rebooked will be assessed the full deposit and therefore result in $0 refunded.
Reservations cancelled within 14 days prior to arrival will be assessed a $75 fee before refunding, when the deposit is not left on account for a future stay.
Reservations cancelled 15 days or more prior to arrival, will be assessed a $25 fee, before refund of deposit.
All reservations booked for Federal Holidays, any weekend in October, stays between Thanksgiving Day and January 5th, require a notice of cancellation 28 days prior to the date of arrival. Notice given 28 days or less before arrival date, may be rescheduled for the 2021 season without penalty. Cancelled reservations prior to 28 days will be assessed a $125 fee before refund. Reservations cancelled within 28 days which are not rebooked, will forfeit deposit.
All other policies are unaffected and still apply to all reservations.
Please check back as we will continue to update our policies and other information as necessary & appropriate for the evolving circumstances.
Lost and Found
All found items and items left behind will be held for 90 days.
Winter driving conditions can begin as early as October and continue through April. When traveling to Leavenworth, chances are very good that you will travel through the mountains and over passes. Therefore, you should have an all-wheel drive vehicle and carry chains with you (to control damages incurred, rental companies no longer supply chains for their customers.)
Our county roads and driveways are (with rare exception) maintained and in good condition. There are times, however, when it becomes necessary for one or more of the mountain passes to close. The Washington State Department of Transportation does an excellent job of maintaining the highways and most closures are brief (usually for clearing or avalanche control). As a courtesy, we will only refund deposits if both Stevens (Highway 2) and Snoqualmie (I-90) passes are closed and are deemed impassable for the day.
If you make a winter reservation please take caution and prepare for winter driving conditions. See our website for more information and our Winter Driving Survival Guide. Additionally, when flying you may wish to fly into Pangborn Municipal Airport (EAT) in Wenatchee, WA. Alaska/Horizon air services this airport.
