Quiet time:

  • Out of respect for our guests, Robert Frost Mountain Cabins enforces a “quiet-time policy” from 11:00pm to 7:00am. Guests who do not observe the policy may be asked to leave, and the cost of the cabin and deposit will not be refunded.

Fires/Open Flames:

  • Open flames are not permitted inside the cabins.
  • Due to safety considerations, fires at the private campfire pits at cabins 6 & 7 require prior approval. Guests who light a fire without approval may be asked to leave without refund.

Additional Charges:

In the unfortunate event that guest(s) cause damage to the cabin, furnishings, décor, linens, appliances, etc., or leave the premises in such a state that additional measures, such as extra cleaning, trash pickup, carpet or upholstery cleaning, etc., must be performed, the guest will be notified via email with an invoice of all charges. Photos will also be made available. If a response is not received within a reasonable amount of time, we reserve the right to charge the card on file for damages, services and or replacement of items. As always, we strive to keep an open line of communication with our guests.
