- Severe Weather Policy: In the event the weather forecasts indicate an imminent threat or strong chance of severe weather, we reserve the right to: (1) Cancel your reservation should you be scheduled to arrive on or before the day of the weather event is predicted to occur. In this case we would hope to reschedule your visit to an alternate date. If an alternate date is not feasible, you will be refunded in full. (2) Request you vacate the cottage as soon as possible to prevent you from being stranded and unable to get out. You will be refunded in full for any unused portion of your stay. In all cases there will be no financial penalties. This policy applies mostly to inclement winter weather. However, it also applies to any other type of severe weather event.
Directions to and the location of Autumn Ridge are disclosed only upon reservation. We do this to protect the seclusion of our property and the privacy of our guests, a policy which has been very much appreciated by all our guests. When you reserve, we will send very detailed directions. Most mapping programs do not correctly direct you to Autumn Ridge as we are located on a private lane off of a country road. Our printed directions will get you there!
