Weekend rates will be charged for each night. Holidays and special event days will be charged at the weekend rate, and may require a minimum two-night stay. All rates are subject to change based on availability and holiday/event dates. Certain dates may be non-refundable.
Reservations made and booked by a third party will also require credit card information of the party staying at the Inn. The third party booking the reservation may be held responsible for any fees based on the details of the reservation.
Cancellations: A full refund of your reservation for a single or multiple-night stay (less a $75/per room/per day transaction fee) is granted at 31 or more days in advance of your scheduled arrival. All cancellations received 30 days or less prior to your scheduled date of arrival will be charged for the full dates/balance of your reservation, including any add-ons. If a gift certificate is used for your stay, the value of the certificate will be retained to cover the cancellation fee and/or entire cost of the reservation and will no longer be valid.
Please note: Our regular cancellation policy does not apply to Special Events or Special Days...which may include New Years Eve/Day, February 13/14, Presidents Day Weekend (Thursday-Monday), Moses Conference, Mothers Day/Graduation Weekend (Friday-Saturday),Memorial Day Holiday Weekend (Thursday-Monday), Fourth of July (July 3rd-6th), Labor Day Holiday Weekend (Thursday - Monday), All Weekend Stays in October, Thanksgiving Holiday (Thursday only) and all days 12/24 - 12/31. Guests who purchase a stay on these particular dates forfeit any and all refund(s) when they make their reservation. Guests that need to cancel for one of these dates must call in advance and may be offered a credit towards a future stay at the discretion of the Innkeeper.
It is our primary desire and goal to have our guests join us as scheduled, however cancellations greatly affect a small B&B like ours. Castle La Crosse is low-inventory property and unlike most hotels, we do not over book our room inventory, nor have a high volume of rooms to offer like a hotel. When we guarantee an accommodation we enter into a contract with our guests, and your room will not be booked to another party. We remove that room from our available inventory and thus lose the opportunity to sell it to others and guaranteeing you the particular room of your choice; that is why is is important for the guarantee to be honored both ways. Because we strictly adhere to our policy, we strongly recommend travel insurance for the unexpected life events(illness, death, accident and other causes).
Third Party Gift Certificates: WE MUST BE ADVISED OF GIFT CERTIFICATE USE PRIOR TO BOOKING YOUR STAY.
WE WILL ONLY ACCEPT ONE (1) GIFT CERTIFICATE of any kind, or a maximum of $500 per stay. Multiple certificates cannot be used per stay. Gift certificates are valid for a Room Stay only and cannot be applied toward the purchase of merchandise or package items.
