BOOKING YOUR VACATION AT THE PELEE ISLAND BOOK HOUSE
There is a 2-night minimum stay during the months of May/ June and September/ October, although weekly rentals are available. Only weekly rentals will be accepted during July and August. Rental weeks run Monday to Sunday (6 nights). A booking deposit of 20% of your total rental fees plus a security deposit and a signed contract is required to hold your reservation. The balance of your rental invoice is due 30 days before your arrival. Your security deposit will be returned 7-10 days after your rental ends and the property has been cleared of any damage. A calendar with open booking dates can be found below. Or go here: www.cottagesincanada.com/peleeislandbookhouse.
Once you have checked if your desired vacation dates are available, please send a message through the contact form. You will then need to download the Rental Request and fill out the dates and your personal information. Send to the email provided. Cancellation Policy: We request a cancellation notice 60 days prior to your vacation. If we are able to rebook the time you reserved, we will be happy to return your money (less a $40 administration fee.) If a suitable renter cannot be found, then your booking deposit of 20% plus your security deposit are forfeited.
Your booking is not complete until a signed short term rental agreement is received and the deposit has been accepted. Please make note of the cottage rules in your contract. These are strictly enforced.Please be aware that we are on septic and water conservation is a must. Do not flush anything other than waste and toilet paper. The septic and weeping bed are in front of the porch. Please do NOT park there. You may park to the side of the bunk house. There is a maximum of 3 cars allowed. The empty lot beside us is owned by someone else. Please be respectful and do NOT park or drive there.
