We do not add a service charge to your bill. If you would like to recognize their service by offering a gratuity to our Housekeepers, they do always appreciate this kindness. You will find information on how to do this in our Restaurant and in your guest room, and we are always happy to help. Our staff keep 100% of their gratuities, and we pay any associated credit card charges for them.
We welcome children over 12 years old however the Inn is not suitable for younger children. We do not have cribs, high chairs or a children's menu.

We do welcome working Service Animals -- view our Deerhill Inn Service Animal Policy.
