  • We will waive the 10% cancellation fee up to 31+ days prior to arrival.

GUESTS WITH UPCOMING BOOKED RESERVATIONS

We understand the uncertainty surrounding this time and have adjusted our policy to allow additional time, without penalty, for you to decide if travel is the right choice for your group as follows.

Due to the Executive Order from the State of Indiana, the City of New Buffalo and the City of Michigan City, all reservations with arrival dates between April 8th and May 4th, 2020 will be cancelled. All monies paid will be automatically refunded.

If you booked your stay prior to March 13, 2020 with an arrival date May 5th to June 15, 2020:

  • Your final payment and the corresponding cancellation policy have automatically been reduced from 60 days to 14 days, prior to your arrival date.
  • Prior to 14 days of your arrival, you can choose new dates of stay at the same property with a departure date before December 31, 2021* based on seasonal rates and availability- with no penalty.

*If we are unable to reschedule your stay dates in 2021 due to Owner Contract conflicts, we will allow a cancellation and waive the 10% penalty.

If you have booked a stay prior to March 13, 2020, with an arrival date between June 16th and July 15th, 2020:
