Policies and Information Regarding J. Paule's Fenn Inn
We are a pet-friendly B&B located in Fennville: providing a convenient lodging option just 10 miles from Saugatuck; only 18 miles from Holland, South Haven, Allegan; and only 45 miles from Grand Rapids, Muskegon and Kalamazoo, Michigan.
Our inn is our living, and we have needed to instate some strong rules to protect us from losing our livelyhood and to provide our guests with the best possible vacation experience. Please read over our policies before making a reservation at J. Paule's Fenn Inn Bed and Breakfast.
Check-in: after 4 PM (unless other arrangements are made).
Check-out: 11:00 AM.
J. Paule's Fenn Inn is a non-smoking bed and breakfast facility. There are no exceptions. If we find evidence of smoking in your room, an automatic $100 extra cleaning charge will be added to your bill, plus a charge for any smoking-related damages.
Reservations require a deposit of 1/2 down to hold your room, payable by a check, Visa, MasterCard, or Discover card. (No money orders or cashier checks accepted). You must have your card present when checking in, if not you will be charged an extra $5.00 of an unsucured card. That is to cover what the card company will charge us.
NOTE: Cash stays are always discounted 2%, and repeat guests always receive a 5% discount on their return visit.
A two-night minimum stay is required for June - September week-end dates, with the exception of a Saturday - Sunday stay to make the two-day requirement. During the week one night stays are fine Monday - Thursday.
Holiday dates require 3-day minimum stay when they fall on a weekend. There are often holiday-related specials offering a discount on the third day.

Cancellations and Refunds
Most area inns will not consider a cancellation refund of any kind if cancellation is the same day you are to arrive because they do not have time to re-book. However, we know that situations arise that may complicate our lives. Our re-booking/Gift Certificate policies allow us to keep our inn running, and they also allow our guests some flexibility in the event of unforeseen circumstances. Your card will still be charged for the stay you booked and you will receive a Gift Certificate for the same amount to use at another time that will work out better for you.
Guests are responsible for the entire reservation amount in the event of cancellations less than seven (7) days prior to your reservation date unless we are able to re-book your reserved room prior to the reservation date. This includes early check-outs. A $25.00 fee will apply to cover the office costs of initiating the process needed to re-rent your reservation days.
If after you check-in you have to leave eary there is no refund on your stay.
Again, in the case of emergency cancellations, you will be issued a Gift Certificate for the full amount of your stay, so that you may enjoy your bed and breakfast vacation at a later date.
If you cancel your reservation less than seven days from your arrival date and we are unable to re-book your room, you will be responsible for the full cost for the night(s) reserved.
