Guest Policies


For four nights or less, we require full payment when the reservation is made. For five or more nights, a 50% deposit is required and the balance due upon arrival. We cannot confirm a reservation until payment is received. Our minimum stay during the summer season is three nights on weekends and two nights on weekdays. During the spring and fall, we require a two night stay on weekends only.


Cancellations must be made 15 days prior to arrival to ensure a refund. Cancellations received less than 15 days prior to arrival are refunded based upon the ability of the Inn to re-sell the room during that period. This policy also applies to guests who arrive after the first day of their reservation or leave before the last day of their reservation. All cancellations are subject to a 10% handling fee.  The Oak Bluffs Inn strongly encourages travel insurance for our guests.


We are on our way home after a 3 night stay at the Inn. We had a wonderful time and most of it thanks to our host Eric. He goes above and beyond for his patrons. Eric helped us maximize our trip by making recommendations and planning our day. I stupidly left my hat at a bar one night and Eric magically tracked it down and returned it to me while getting us to a ferry on time! I would love to stay here again and encourage you to do so. The atmosphere is welcoming and fun! You feel like family by the end of the trip.
