Guest Policies

We will do everything possible to make your stay most enjoyable. To ensure you will have a very pleasant experience at Peaceful Meadows Bed and Breakfast, we have established the following policies. Please take a few minutes to review these policies, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Booking Policies

Room rates include double occupancy and a full breakfast. Guests are invited to our evening wine hour, which we frequently offer, and may feature a glass of wine with homemade snacks or dessert.  All of our breakfasts and snacks are vegan and do not contain animal products of any kind.  If you would prefer to eat breakfast at Absolute Bakery in Mancos or just skip breakfast entirely, we will refund $20 from your room rate. Just let us know 48 hours in advance.

The B&B does not accept walk-in guests. Bookings within 48 hours of stay must be made by phone.

Rates are quoted per night excluding tax (5.2%).

All reservations must be guaranteed with a credit card regardless of how the final payment will be made. We accept MC, Visa, Paypal. We do not accept personal checks.

Guests that will be redeeming any kind of certificates or vouchers must provide the certificate number at the time of booking.

Whole lodge rentals (up to 27 guests) must be paid in full 90 days in advance.

Check In/Check Out
Check-In is between 4:00 pm and 8:00 pm. Arrangements for late arrivals should be made in advance with the Innkeeper. Please, no calls or late arrivals after 8:00 out of respect and courtesy of other house guests and our Innkeeper. Early arrivals are discouraged since our small staff is busy turning the rooms over from the previous night to make everything is ready for your check-in at 4:00, and a $50 fee will be assessed on the final bill for urgency and extra housekeeping preparations related to unexpected arrivals. Please, no early drop-off of bags or in-room items.

Checkout time is at 10:00 a.m. so we can prepare our facilities for incoming guests.

Minimum Stays for Premium Weekends
During major holiday weekends, there may be a three night minimum stay required. Major holiday weekends include: Valentine’s Day holiday period, Good Friday through Easter Sunday, Memorial day weekend, the July 4th holiday period, Labor Day weekend, Thanksgiving Eve thru the Saturday following Thanksgiving, and December 23rd through January 2nd.

Cancellation Policy
Making a reservation at a bed and breakfast is not the same as making a hotel reservation. Due to our small size, cancellations affect us significantly. A last minute cancellation gives us little chance of re-booking a room. For this reason we uphold a strict cancellation policy:

Guests are responsible for payment of all nights reserved regardless of their actual arrival or departure date.
No-shows are responsible for full payment of their entire reservation.
Should you cancel outside of 10 days prior to arrival, your deposit will be refunded, less a $30/room/night Administration/Re-booking fee.
Cancellations (including changes) made 9 days or less prior to your scheduled arrival forfeit the 50% deposit and if the room is unable to be re-booked, the full reservation value will be charged to the credit card provided at the time of making the reservation. There are no exceptions to this policy including sickness, family emergencies, or weather related issues.

Groups with Whole Lodge rentals require a 3 month notice for cancellation for a refund (less $100 reservation fee). Cancellations on entire lodge rentals less than 90 days notice will be charged the entire cost of the reserved stay.

Owner’s Rights
Peaceful Meadows Bed and Breakfast is privately owned and operated. Management reserves the right to refuse service to anyone. We will not be responsible for guest accidents or injury, or for the loss of money, jewelry, or valuables of any kind.

Property Issues
Any damages, stolen items, or broken items occurring during the stay will be the full financial responsibility of the guest, including anyone traveling with the guest. Any special clean-up resulting in damages caused by the guests will be charged to the credit card. Charges may need to be applied after guest departure as deemed necessary by the Owner/Innkeeper. Robe replacement cost is $125 and towel replacement cost is $25. Smoking is not allowed anywhere inside or near the premises.

Please report all spills and/or damages to the Innkeeper promptly.

Alcoholic Beverages
Peaceful Meadows B&B does not hold a license to resell alcoholic beverages. Guests may bring their own, but for the safety and comfort of all of our guests, please drink responsibly. There are several establishments to purchase locally as well. Peaceful Meadows and/or employees will not be held responsible for any incidents.

Smoking, Candle Burning, Incense, and Fireworks
Due to the nature of our log building, and for the safety and comfort of all of our guests, we do not allow smoking, fireworks, bonfires, or incense/candle burning in any of our guest rooms or on any of the grounds near the building. Lodge guests smoking in the house or on the grounds in non designated areas will be charged a minimum $200 fee and up, to return any room to a non-smoking status.

Guests, Children, and Pets at the Lodge
We cater to the comfort, privacy and security of our registered guests. Guest visitors are only permitted on the property with prior Innkeeper approval. Because we are not a restaurant, we are only able to serve food or beverages to registered guests.

Peaceful Meadows B&B is regarded as a quiet escape and romantic getaway for most of our guests, and we work hard to foster that environment. Therefore, it is not an appropriate place for children under 12 unless it is a full lodge rental. We may make some exceptions, please contact us to discuss.

We regret that we are not able to accommodate guest pets.

Wedding Night Stays
If you are you booking a stay for your wedding night, please be advised that our guest rooms, common areas and grounds are for our registered guests only. Booking a reservation for a stay does not entitle a bride or groom, family and friends to use any guest room or any part of the Lodge or grounds for bridal party wedding preparations and photographs without the Innkeeper’s prior approval.
