Every house has some rules. Here are ours.

House policies

Accommodation: One or two people may stay in each room.

Minimum stays of two nights on weekends and three nights on holiday weekends may be in effect.

Reservation and deposit: Book online, or email or telephone your room reservation request. We accept your deposit equivalent to one-night’s stay via credit card or a personal U.S. check made out to Shorewood Adventures Inc. You will receive an email confirmation of your reservation. Canadian guests, we’ll work with you to minimize conversion fees.

Check-in and payment: Check-in is at a mutually convenient time after 1 p.m. You'll get a cell number to which you can text arrival updates, so we can be sure to be here to greet you. Payment for the balance due for the number of nights reserved is usually process during the week prior to your arrival, after the cancellation deadline, using the credit card on file.. Adventure Inn B&B accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, personal U.S. check and U.S. or equivalent Canadian dollars. We add six percent Michigan use tax and a $1-per-room-night association fee.

Cancellation and refund: Canceling the reservation more than seven days prior to scheduled arrival date entitles you to a full refund of the deposit. Exceptions may apply to bookings for certain packages requiring advance arrangements or purchases; exceptions will be stated in the email confirming the reservation. If you cancel the reservation with fewer than seven days but more than 24 hours prior to the scheduled arrival date, payment for the entire reservation is owed. We're a small business, so late cancellations hit us hard. We will subtract, however, an amount equal to monies received if we are able to re-book the room(s), which we make every effort to do. No refunds are issued for same-day cancellations or no-shows. Shortening a stay is considered a variation of canceling; the payment and cancellation policies apply.

Gift certificates and cancellations. Adventure Inn B&B accepts gift certificates that we issue and gift certificates issued by the Michigan Lake to Lake Bed and Breakfast Association. A guest's promise to pay for a reservation with a gift certificate is treated the same as a promise to pay with a credit card. Thus, the same policy (see Item 5, above) applies to cancellations; before seven days, the gift certificate may be used in the future; after seven days, the gift certificate is considered redeemed unless we can fill the vacancy. If the gift certificate does not cover the entire amount of the reservation, a credit card will be requested to hold the reservation.

Checkout is 11-ish. If Lake Huron beckons, do linger to enjoy it after checking out.

Quiet hours are observed from 11 p.m. to 8 a.m.

Smoking is permissible outdoors. (And please, no butts on the ground.) Michigan law prohibits smoking in a lodging establishment.

We love children, but be aware that our bed and breakfast is not childproof and many guests choose a bed and breakfast to take a break from little ones.

We love pets, too, but please make other arrangements for your four-legged friend.Beach use is for registered guests. If friends visit you during your stay, Burtchville Park has a lovely beach and picnic facilities less than a quarter-mile north.

A tasty, full breakfast is served at a pre-arranged time between 8 and 9:45 a.m. Early risers may help themselves to coffee or tea. Breakfast menus at Adventure Inn B&B vary and may range from Admirably Sensible to Delightfully Decadent. Tell us your preferences when making a reservation. We make every effort to accommodate “must-haves” and “can’t-haves” if we know about them in advance.

Drive slooooowly on the one-lane drive leading to Adventure Inn B&B. Yield to other vehicles in the lane. Duck into a driveway rather than drive on someone's lawn.
