Guests are responsible for extraordinary cleaning charges, damage resulting from negligence or willful or wanton conduct or damage by a pet (in those units that allow dogs). No smoking is permitted in the cottages and a $300 fee will be applied if this occurs.
Our cancellation policy during peak and fringe season is 6 weeks notice regardless of circumstance.
Should you need to cancel your reservation at Ocean Mist Cottages, your cancellation notice must be made in writing - either by email, fax or mail.
For cancellations received more than 6 weeks prior to your scheduled arrival date and after the 25% deposit has been made, a $100 administrative fee will be forfeited from the 25% Reservation Deposit.

Ocean Mist Cottages will make every effort to rebook the cottage, however we cannot guarantee rebooking. No-shows, late arrival and early departures after arrival are all non-refundable. Ocean Mist Cottages suggest that you purchase trip cancellation insurance which may cover you for specific unforeseen reasons that cause you to cancel your trip. The most common reasons for cancellation within the 6 week period may include but are not limited to:
- becoming unexpectedly ill or injured
- hospitalization or death of a non-traveling family member
- various weather or common carrier/transportation related issues
- unforeseen natural disasters at home or the destination
- legal obligation, such as being called for jury duty or to appear as a witness in court
- work related reasons
We certainly understand that circumstances may arise that require cancellation of your reservation, however our business must adhere to our 6 week cancellation timeline and associated fees.
