Seanook from across Linekin Bay

We do all our own booking because we are fed-up with sites that charge you and us exorbitant fees and do not allow us to truely communicate with you!  So please contact us. We would love to personally answer all your questions.
In Fall, Winter & Spring we calculate rates according to the number of guests to make prices more equitable for smaller groups.  At Seanook we count children as people for both rates and occupancy.  All summer weeks are at the stated rate for up to six people; one price fits all.

Pet Policy:

We like pets and most pet owners are wonderful; it’s just that, unfortunately, some people spoil it for everyone. So our pet policy has to go to the lowest common denominator. Here are our thoughts and requirements.
 
Seanook’s kitchen and looking through the living room toward the sunroom

We would encourage you to enjoy your vacation without the added hassle of looking after your pet; when they stop to think about it, this has proved beneficial for some folks. If you must have him with you

 

in this strange environment, we ask that you not leave him alone in the house unless you bring a kennel for him to stay in while you are gone. This kennel is mandatory!

Pets are not allowed on our beds or bedding.  Please bring your own for your pet. We require pets to be kept off our furniture, pillows, and all bedding.  No cats! 

 
Seanook from the water in summer

In the interest of doing our part to preserve the peaceful character of Linekin Bay, and because sound travels unimpeded across the expanse of water, (you will be mindful of this when you are here and hear a dog barking from across the bay and sounds like it is right next to you), if your faithful friend barks or cries while left alone in the house, we will ask you to remedy the situation by closing the doors and windows or taking him with you; we reserve the right, should there be an extended problem, to require you to board him for the remainder of your stay.  
 
In addition your cooperation in cleaning up the grounds is required.  If we have to do that you will not get any of your partial refund of deposit back!
 
As to the $350 pet fee on our contract, $100 of this is partially or wholly refundable depending on how much time we have to spend cleaning specifically after the dog on your departure. This is for one pet. A second dog is an additional $350 with likewise $100 of that being possibly refundable. 
 
Dock: You may keep your boat at our dock.  We reserve the right to keep our dinghy on the dock as well and to occasionally personally use the dock; for example, we may have someone come visit us by boat.  It might be an interesting boat, in which case, enjoy!
 
Late Departure Fee:¬†¬†Check-out time is by 10:00 am following your last night.¬† At the manager’s descretion, there may be a penalty fee of $40 per hour that you stay without permission beyond the normal departure time.¬† A delayed check-out until noon may be aproved on request if we have no one coming in the same afternoon.
 
Cleaning fee for One night stay.  If you want to deviate from our two-night minimum and stay just one night, there will be an extra $60 cleaning fee.
