    Cancellations & No Shows

    Because of our small size, cancellations and no shows affect us significantly. For this reason cancellations must be made fourteen (14) days prior to the date of arrival to avoid forfeiture of your deposit.

    We will actively attempt to re-book your room, and if we are able to rent your room to another guest, your deposit, less a $15 bank imposed credit card charge, will be refunded. If a guest does not arrive and honor their reservation or contact us to cancel (aka - No Show), they will be charged for the full amount of the stay.

    Please consider purchasing travel insurance (click here for trip insurance details), available on the internet, to protect yourself from unforeseen circumstances, which may require cancellation of your trip.

    Smoking

    We are a non-smoking facility, so smoking is not allowed indoors. You're welcome to smoke outdoors (away from open windows). Please use the waste receptacles available. If evidence of smoking is found in your guest room, a $250 cleaning fee will be charged to your credit card.

    Parking

    Parking is limited to guests only, as we have only one parking space per room. Please let us know in advance if you will need parking for more than one vehicle.

    Children

    The main building of our Bed and Breakfast is not appropriate for young children; many of our guests are looking for a quiet getaway. Children over the age of twelve, with well-behaved parents, are welcome in the main house (Guest Rooms 1 - 6), and younger children we allow in Guest Suite 7, the Tailor's Cottage. Please note, we do not provide a special children's menu at breakfast.

    Pets

    We love pets and have one of our own, a wonderful dog named Lucky who lives in the Inn. For this reason, pets are only allowed in our Tailor's Cottage. (See complete Pet Policy Below).

    Legal Notice

    This is our home and we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. We are not responsible for accidents or injury, damages to personal property or vehicles or for the loss of money or valuables of any kind. We have a house safe available and are happy to secure your valuables upon request.

    Forgotten Items

    Items left behind at the inn can be sent to you via mail at your request. The cost of shipping + a $5 handling and packaging fee (rounded to the next whole dollar) will be billed to your credit card. After 3 months, any unclaimed items will be donated to our local Good Will.

  • The Pet-Friendly Hotel Alternative Near Lancaster, Pennsylvania

    Historic Smithton Inn dog

    If you are looking for pet-friendly lodging accommodations, consider the Smithton Inn.

    Your canine companion is welcome to stay at our dog-friendly bed and breakfast. Please know that there is only one pet-friendly room at the Inn, and prior approval and reservation must be made for your four-legged friend. Pet-friendly hotel rooms are extremely limited in the area, so it's a good idea to book your stay well in advance.

    The Smithton Inn takes all necessary measures to ensure the safety and comfort of all hotel guests and pets, so we ask that you observe a few simple rules.

    Reservations for pets must be made and disclosed prior to arrival and are only allowed in a select room, and pets must be declared at check-in.

    Pet Fee

    A non-refundable fee of $25 will be charged for pet-friendly lodging, for any dog, up to 40 pounds. At this time, we only accept our canine friends. Two, well-behaved canines per room are permitted for the $25 fee. Service animals are always allowed. Pet owners will be liable for any additional cleaning bills or repairs, should they be required.

    Please know that Breakfast in Bed is included in the Pet Fee. Please be sure to fill out the attached form and leave it at the front desk before 7:00 p.m. each night.

    Policies

    All pets must be vaccinated and licensed, and you agree to obtain and provide current records from a licensed veterinarian regarding this. The Inn may request this information from you at any time.

    In consideration of all hotel guests, pets must be leashed and attended to at all times and are not permitted in the public areas of the hotel.

    Your pet cannot be left alone in your guestroom. If your pet is found in the room without you present, the manager reserves the right to take action, including eviction.

    Pets may not be allowed to run free, for their own protection, as well as the safety and comfort of hotel guests and staff.

    When walking pets on the property, please be considerate of other guests and clean up after your pet.

    If the pet causes any disturbances to other guests or is not kept under your control, The Smithton Inn reserves the right to take action, including eviction.

    Housekeeping

    Please know that we service and clean your room daily from 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., and in order for our housekeepers to enter in your room, your pet must either be crated or not in the room. You may request that housekeeping clean your room at a specific time when you and your pet will be out of the room.

    Rooms will be inspected the day of your departure; any extra cleaning fee or damage may result in additional charges to your credit card on file.

As the registered guest assigned to room #_____, I assume all responsibility for all occupants and pets and their actions, and authorize the Smithton Inn to charge my credit card for the pet fee, as well as any other charges deemed necessary by the Smithton Inn to cover extra cleaning and/or damages associated with animals in the room.
