We cannot be responsible for unused rooms due to late or canceled airline flights, family emergencies, illness, threat of bad weather and other travel-related mishaps or for changes in plans which shorten your stay. Vacation Insurance is available from several providers online to inexpensively protect you against covered unexpected events.

Damages Policy to Hotel and Property

We reserve the right to charge guests the cost of rectifying damage, caused by the deliberate, negligent or reckless act of the guest to the hotel’s property or structure. Should this damage come to light after the guest has departed, we reserve the right to make a charge to the guest’s credit / debit card, or send an invoice for the amount to the registered address. We will, however, make every effort to rectify any damage internally prior to contracting specialists to make the repairs, and therefore will make every effort to keep any costs that the guest would incur to a minimum.


This is a no-smoking facility. 


Please, no pets. Although we love animals, we simply do not have the facilities (inside or outside) for guests to bring them.


We love children, but we ask that you leave them with a sitter in order to maintain the quiet, romantic atmosphere at Summer Creek Inn. An exception to allow children are made if you are renting the entire facility. Adult Only means 16 and up.

Check-In Procedure:

At Summer Creek Inn we have always had the highest standards of providing our guests with a clean safe environment.

Upon your arrival, we request that you wear a mask during the check-in process and while inside the building if you are interacting with staff or other guest. If you do not have a mask, we will be happy to provide you with one. We request that you use the hand sanitizer located next to the door and clean your shoes on the mat next to the door each time you enter the building.

Prior to entering the building, you will need to ring the doorbell; a staff member will greet you and provide you access to the building, assist you with check in, luggage, provide you with door codes, tour the building and show you to your room.

All guests checking in will need to show a valid ID so it will speed up the check-in process if you have your ID ready upon your arrival.

When in common areas if other guests or staff are present, we request that you wear your mask. For us to reopen and provide a safe and healthy environment for both our guests and staff we have made the before-mentioned changes.

As always, we are here to provide you with the highest level of service and if there is anything that you need to improve your stay please don’t hesitate to ask.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and we look forward to your arrival.
