Q. Is Eagle's Nest a traditional bed and breakfast where the innkeepers live in the house and serve up a big breakfast?
A. No, the innkeepers live in the detached house on property so guests have a completely private stay and full access to their own space. A continental breakfast will already be provided upon arrival (fruit, yogurt, juices, muffins, etc...). Innkeeper and guest interaction is very limited, if at all, to respect our guests' privacy so they can enjoy the private guest house as their own home.
Q. What is your cancellation policy?
A. You can cancel your reservation up to 30 days prior to arrival without penalty with the exception of Ryder Cup dates between Sep. 18th - Oct. 3rd, 2020; those bookings require 60 days notice. We will refund 100% of the initial payment (less credit card processing fees the credit card company keeps). Once you make your final payment, your reservation can’t be cancelled. We recommend that you purchase trip insurance if you would like protection against something unexpected.
