Local telephone calls may be made using our in-room telephones. Long distance calls may be completed using personal cell phones.

Our home and its facilities are for the use of our registered guests.  Non-registered guests and other facility uses must be discussed and approved in advance with the B&B owners.  Our registered guests are responsible for any damage to our home or property caused through neglect or misuse by our guests or guests of our registered guests.

We ask that our guests do not share our entrance codes with unregistered guests.

When checking-out, please leave your room key in your room’s door or give key directly to one of your hosts.  If you forget and take your key with you, please return key and fob by USPS mail service.

By State law, smoking is not permitted inside the home.  Smoking is allowed on the outside porches unless offensive to other
guests.  Smoking is not allowed within 8 feet of any entrance or exit.

Off-street, lighted parking spaces are provided in the parking area on the east side of the property.  Guests are asked to park within the lined spaces to allow room for other guests’ vehicles.

Advance reservations, with at least 24-hour notice, are required. Reservation cancellations, if necessary, must be completed at least seven (7) days prior to the arrival date.  There will be a $10 processing fee for cancelled reservations during the 7 day period prior to the date of arrival.  Last minute cancellations may be charged a full one-night’s room charge especially on high occupancy dates, such as: the James Dean Fall Festival and Duck Tail Run events in September; University Move-in or Move-out Weekends, Parents’ or Grandparents’ Weekends, Graduation Weekends for IWU or Taylor Universities; and definitely for “No-Shows”. 

We offer aWi-Fi computer network for our guests.  Because of the fragile nature of Internet service, we make no guarantees
for the stability or access to the Internet system.  Please ask your host(s) for the Wi-Fi passwords.

We accept cash or personal checks.  At the present we do not accept credit cards because of the high and fluctuating charges for
credit card use.  Our bank does not allow us to accept foreign currency, or any form of American Express or other foreign
Traveler’s Checks or currency.
