CANCELLATION POLICIES 

Late cancellations have a significant impact on us due to our Island location and seasonal nature. Vacancies caused by early departures are considered to be cancellations and full payment of your reserved stay is expected. The cancellation policy does not apply to room blocks.

Before confirming your reservation please check with your own state’s quarantine requirements upon your return from vacationing with us. These quarantine requirements are starting to loosen up significantly across the country for domestic travel. Refunds are not allowed for quarantine requirements in your own state so please determine this before you confirm your reservation with us.

Reservations for stays between June 25th and Labor Day of the reservation year have the following administrative fees and policies:

  • Fully refundable if canceled by February 1 of the reservation year
  • For cancellations made by May 1, of the reservation year, there is a $300.00 administrative fee per reservation
  • Cancellations made thereafter of the reservation year are non-refundable unless we are sold out for the entire period of your reservation (less a 10% administrative fee)

Reservations for stays between Labor Day and June 24th of the reservation year (excluding certain periods listed below) have the following administrative fees and policies:

  • For cancellations of more than 60 days prior to your arrival date of the reservation year, there is a  $50.00 administrative fee
  • For cancellations of 30-60 days prior to your arrival date of the reservation year, there is a $150.00 administrative fee
  • Cancellations made within 30 days prior to your arrival date of the reservation year are non-refundable unless we are sold out for the entire period of your reservation (less a 10% administrative fee)

PLEASE NOTE: For the below specialty periods, the following cancellation policy applies: 

  • Memorial Day Weekend, Columbus Day Weekend, Oysterfest, and Wine Festival.
  • Cancel more than 60 days prior to your arrival date of your reservation year = $50.00 administrative fee.
  • Cancel within 60 days prior to your arrival date of your reservation year = Non-refundable unless we are sold out for the entire period of your reservation (less a 10% administrative fee).

COVID-19 Related Cancellations (2022 only): 

  • If a guest named on the reservation comes down with COVID within 14 days advance of your scheduled arrival date at the Winnetu Oceanside Resort, with a written positive PCR result, the reservation payment amount may be used towards a future stay for up to 12 months. Same accommodation/date cannot be guaranteed. There are no refunds.

If either the boats or the airplanes are operating to/from Cape Cod, we expect guests to arrive as expected whether or not they planned to arrive by boat or plane. If all transportation to/from Cape Cod has been canceled on a given day, then a credit toward a future stay – or refund – will be issued for that night’s lodging. Once transportation services resume, guests are expected to arrive for the balance of their reservation. Travel delays, air cancellations from locations other than Cape Cod, missed connections, medical or any other travel issues will not merit any credits or refunds. These potential unforeseen problems are best addressed with travel insurance, as mentioned above.

In the unlikely event of a hurricane or severe weather conditions, refunds will only be considered after the storm and only if two or more nights are unable to be occupied after the storm.
