Bayberry House Bed and Breakfast Policies

Welcome to your home away from home. If you have any issues or problems please let me know immediately so they can be resolved. You can reach me any time at 740-632-2899, thanks, Scott.

Check-In is from 4 pm to 6 pm by arranged appointment. A later self-service check-in can be easily arranged. Because we do not have a traditional 24 hour front desk we ask that you call me when you are 30 minutes away so we can meet you on the porch. If your plans change and you will be earlier or later than your scheduled appointment please call me and let me know your anticipated time of arrival so I can make arrangements.

Check-Out is by 11 am.

Minimum Rental Age: 21, photo ID and credit card may be required at check in.

Cancellation for reservations made on our site or directly: One or two room reservations can be cancelled up to 10 days prior your day of arrival, with just the $25 cancellation fee applying, after the ten day cutoff is past the entire reservation is due in full. If you book through Expedia,, Priceline, or any other site other than directly on ours you will need to cancel with them as they won't allow me to cancel your reservation through them (cancellation fees and timing varies on other sites due to their constraints, Expedia/ is 10 days at 20% penalty, is 14 days 30% penalty, please note that in your confirmation with them).

Security at the Bayberry: The Bayberry House Bed and Breakfast is a collection of four private residences around the corner of North Fourth Street and Madison Avenue in the North Fourth Street Historic District. I live on site in the yellow house behind the Mansion and Westfall House and across from the parking area at the Garrett House. The historic area on North Fourth Street has lots of families with children and is a nice residential district with some small professional offices as well. On each side of the inn there is a family living so the area is active with people doing everyday things. Doors are kept locked and you are asked to lock the front door when you come and go.
