Historic Banning Mills Cancellation Policies
If you must cancel your reservation, a request must be emailed to us. We will not accept phone calls as a cancellation request. If you do not receive a cancellation confirmation, please call or email to let us know.
We highly encourage you to buy travel insurance which will assist you in case of last minute cancellation needs. Because we are a small country inn, cancellations within the cancellation period make it extremely difficult to rebook those openings we have held for you. Comparison sites such as www.insuremytrip.com are excellent ways to shop the best rates. Sometimes, unforseen things come up. Being prepared with travel insurance helps alleviate those last minute surprises.
