Policies and Miscellaneous Information for Speedwell Forge Bed and Breakfast

By making a reservation, you are agreeing to our policies:

Check-in and Out

Check-in time is 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. We do not have a front desk; please make every effort to arrive on time. Late arrivals that have not been prearranged will result in a late fee of $35 per hour.

Check out time is 11 a.m.

Deposits: A deposit of 50% of your stay will be charged to your credit card at the time your reservation is made. Deposits can only be made by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover or debit cards. Your balance is due upon arrival.


When a guest makes a reservation for a stay at Speedwell Forge B&B we agree to turn away all other requests for the room you select and you agree to pay the rate quoted for the number of days you reserve it. A small bed and breakfast such as ours is significantly affected by cancellations and we appreciate your consideration of our policies.

We adhere to a strict cancellation policy.

Cancellations made prior to the 10 day arrival deadline will be refunded their deposit less a $35 non refundable cancellation fee. Cancellations made within 10 days or your arrival date will lose their deposit. Cancellations made two days or less will be charged the full amount of the reservation unless we are able to re-rent the room. This includes “No-shows” and premature check-outs.

Vacation Insurance is available from several providers online to inexpensively protect you against unexpected events. We will make every effort to re-sell the room so that you may receive a refund. Note: Longer cancellation periods will be applied to multi-room bookings. Please call for information. Cancellations must be made directly by calling and speaking to an innkeeper or by e-mail with a confirmed response.


Smoking is not permitted inside any of the buildings. A cleaning fee of $500 will be assessed for any violations.


Children 18 and older are welcome… our home is a peaceful retreat for our guests; and contains fragile furnishings. $50 charge for each additional person.


Sorry, we cannot accommodate pets. There are several kennels in the area that may be able to accommodate your pet. Please check local listings.
