PARKING: We have private parking to accommodate our guests. Please consult the Innkeeper should larger vehicle/multi vehicle accommodation be needed. Sleeping Bear Inn is located within the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and a park pass is required. Passes may be purchased at the Inn or added to your guest bill.
RATES: Rates are for single or double occupancy. All rates include our hot home-cooked elegant breakfast with a complementary (typically sweet) treat in the evening. While we try to keep our website up to date, all listed rates are subject to change without notice. Rates are subject to all taxes and a nominal credit card convenience fee.
OCCUPANCY: The maximum occupancy for each room is two guests. The number of guests must be specified when booking each room. Each guest room has one bed and we do not provide roll-away beds.
RESERVATION AGE REQUIREMENT: Guests must be 21 years of age or older to make a reservation.
PAYMENTS: We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and cash. Checks will not be accepted.
DEPOSIT POLICY: For reservations, a deposit equal to 50% of the cost of your stay will be taken at the time of booking. A second deposit equal to the balance due for your stay will be taken at the point that a reservation is no longer cancelable which is 14 days prior to your arrival date. Certain packages and promotions may have different deposit policies that apply.
STANDARD CANCELLATION: Should you need to cancel a reservation more than 14 days prior to your arrival date, we will process a refund of your deposit in the form of Sleeping Bear Inn credit, less a $35 processing fee. If you cancel 14 days or less prior to your scheduled arrival, no refund credit will be given. "No calls" & "No shows" will be billed for 100% of the reservation. Gift certificate recipients are subject to the same cancellation polices.
BREAKFAST: A plated meal served in the dining room, porch or your guest room between 8 AM - 9 AM EST daily.
DIETARY RESTRICTIONS: Please make us aware of any dietary restrictions or food allergies prior to your stay. We will do our best to accommodate any restrictions, but we do not have an allergy-free kitchen.
CHILDREN: The Inn is set up as a getaway destination for adults. Regrettably, our facility is not equipped to accommodate children under the age of 8 years old. Children visiting the Inn with parents are expected to be supervised at all times.
NON-INN GUESTS DURING YOUR STAY: Common areas of the Inn and grounds of the property are solely for the use by booked guests or patrons of the Inn. Many guests who stay with us are here to visit friends and family or attend a local event. We require our guests to gain preapproval with us before inviting other people who are not guests of the Inn.
MULTI ROOM BOOKINGS: When one party or group book all Sleeping Bear Inn rooms, it does not mean it is an agreement to book the whole of the Sleeping Bear Inn property, common rooms or grounds. Only guests who have reserved a room may stay at the property. People invited by guests must be approved by the Innkeepers. Sleeping Bear Inn is a small inn, it is not an AIRBNB business. If you are booking all rooms for a special event such as a small wedding or reunion, please contact the Innkeeper to arrange an “all room rental agreement” that can include additional property uses.
SMOKING/ VAPING AND CANDLES: We are a non-smoking facility, including vaping. We do not allow candles. We ask that all guests smoke or vape outdoors in a designated area. Any smoking or vaping in the Inn will result in an immediate request to leave and an additional cleaning fee of $300, plus your room charges.
QUIET HOURS: Quiet hours are from 10 PM to 7 AM EST every day of the week. Guests may come and go as they please.
OUTSIDE FOOD AND DRINK: We ask all guests refrain from eating outside food in the guest rooms. We do not allow any use of our Inn kitchen without prior approval and staff supervision, nor do we allow guests to prepare and cook food in their guest rooms. We are happy to prepare additional meals for you including “grab and go” and those charges can be added to your room bill. We provide a common microwave and refrigerator in the second story hallway for guests. Currently alcohol is not sold on property. Guests of age (21 years+) are welcome to provide their own adult beverages.
PETS: We do not permit pets.
