Our Policies

*** COVID-19 policy deviations: Refunds will NOT be issued for reservations made AFTER the Covid-19 pandamic has been made public. Guest assumes all responsibility for their actions. By making a reservation for accommodations, the guest is aware that COVID-19 exists and it is out of the control of this establishment if events, plans and outings cannot occur because of any mandates set by federal or local governments. We may issue credit vouchers or change the arrival date for guests that call within a reasonable period of time, allowing us to book the cottage to another person or group. If guest has booked with a 3rd party, guest must call 3rd party to cancel or change dates.



We are a non-pet property. Please respect this policy.  A cleaning fee of up to $250 may be assessed.


All of our rooms are smoke/vape free. This includes your porch/balcony, and other sitting areas on the property. Smoking/Vaping violations will be subject to a fee of up to $250.


Any damages to the property, furnishings, missing items or linens (including linens that will need special attention or additional time to remove soil, spills or makeup) shall be the responsibility of the guest and will be charged to the credit card on file. Makeup cloths and remover wipes have been provided to try to prevent us from charging for the additional time to cleaning linens, there are also old linens under the kitchen/bathroom sinks in a white bucket for spills or cleaning dirt, mud, or accidents.


We run 1/2 of the total reservation on a credit card (MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express) at the time of booking. The balance is due 7 days prior to arrival (limit 2 transactions per reservation at check-in). We do require a credit card on file for all reservations. Our tax rate is 13% (7% local and 6% state tax). 


Because of our size, cancellations affect the Gruene Cottages significantly.  There will be NO REFUND of the deposit paid, however, credit vouchers may be issued at Management's discretion.  *Reservations not made directly with Gruene Cottages are subject to the fees described in the booking terms at the time the reservation was made.


We welcome children in our rooms, but require at least one parent or guardian to accompany any children while on the property including the pool area. If a child requires their own bed, they will be counted toward the total occupancy of the room.
