Southern Maine Bed and Breakfast Gift Certificates
A Gift Certificate from the Inn at Tanglewood Hall makes a wonderful holiday, wedding, anniversary, or birthday present. Gift certificates are also a great way to express your gratitude towards that special employee. You can be assured that you are giving a gift of warmth and generous hospitality from one of York Harbor’s most prestigious Bed and Breakfasts. Gift certificates may be purchased with a credit card by phone or online by clicking the icon at the bottom of the page. Be sure to note how you wish the TO and FROM sections to appear.
Twelve and Over. We offer a quiet peaceful retreat for all of our guests. There are many fragile collections and antiques throughout the inn and we have been honored to host many wonderful kids here. However, we do ask all parents to thoughtfully evaluate their children’s personal supervisionary needs before considering this inn. It is not child-proofed for their safety.
We do not accept pets. However we do know a lovely caretaker who will board your dog for a reasonable fee.
Registered Guests Only
Due to the intimacy of the inn and overall security, the rooms in our home are intended for registered guests only.
Smoking & Candles
All rooms are non-smoking in ordinance with Maine State law. Smoking is permitted only in outside areas 25 feet from any building per Maine State law, a $500 charge will be charged to your card on file for smoking in our rooms or on porches. Due to fire and insurance codes the burning of candles is also prohibited for the safety of all.
Two Night Minimum Stay
On Saturdays generally from May 15th through Veteran’s Day, please contact us for exceptions.
We require a one night’s stay or 50% deposit (whichever is larger) for each room to be processed at the time the reservation is made. This deposit shall apply to your last night(s) stay. Gift Certificates may not be used as deposits. The balance is due upon your arrival at Check-in. Late Arrivals will be charged the balance due to the card on file that day. Group reservations of three rooms or more require the balance to be paid in full within 14 days of the reservation.
We accept MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express, and Cash. Prices are subject to Maine Lodging Tax of 8%. Gift Certificates are also available for lodging redemptions only, unless otherwise specified previously. We do not accept Bed and Breakfast.com Gift Cards.
Between 3:00PM and 6:00PM only, unless special arrival arrangements have been confirmed with advance notice.
Anytime before 11AM.
We are just a small B&B, so cancellations affect us dramatically, but we will make every effort to provide a fair solution. Unlike most Bed and Breakfasts, if circumstances for a cancellation are deemed warranted, a Courtesy Voucher may be issued for a future stay at the Innkeeper’s discretion depending upon seasonal availability. Otherwise: Notice given 14 days (or more) prior to a room reservation will receive a full refund less a $25.00 credit card handling fee. Cancellations within the 14-day period will incur a loss of deposit. Last minute cancellations or changes (within 5 days of the reservation) will result in a charge for the entire reserved stay unless we are able to rerent the room. We will try our best to do so and will prorate refunds accordingly or issue a Courtesy Voucher. We do reschedule for local winter weather whenever possible. Regretfully, we can not grant refunds for early departures or late arrivals. As we have no control over family situations and illnesses, flight delays or cancellations, or weather outside the area, our cancellation policies apply equally under those circumstances. Please consider travel insurance.
Our 1880s circular driveway offers limited parking to accommodate our six rooms. If you plan to drive more than one vehicle, please notify us ahead of time.
All rates are subject to change without notice. Rates are only guaranteed for deposited reservations.
