Cancellation for reservations made on our web site or directly by phone: 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, Booking.com, Priceline, Hotels.com 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/Hotels.com is 10 days at 20% penalty, Booking.com/Priceline is 14 days 30% penalty, please note that in your confirmation with them).

Wedding Parties are required to rent an entire house if they are planning on
photos and others coming to assist preparing on wedding day. This is so that
other guests are not disturbed. A wedding couple staying the night in one room
after their wedding with just them at the B&B is fine.
Children: are welcome and generally count as an adult, please give me a call if you have any questions. No children in the Jacuzzi or Jacuzzi Suite please.
No Smoking, e-Cigarettes, or Candles: Smoking is outside only at the Bayberry.
Kitchen Use: Guests may store cold beverages in the refrigerator and use the glassware in the kitchen, and you can also make coffee or tea whenever you would like. If you get takeout or delivery, dishes are available in the kitchen. Please place your used dishware and glassware in the dishwasher and rinse out the coffee pot after use. Guests are asked not to use the kitchen stove for cooking a meal. Only extended stay guest are allowed to cook in the kitchen if they have so arranged.
Breakfast: is available daily from 7:30 until 9:30. If you are up earlier you are welcome to eat as well. Homemade hot breakfast is available from 7:30 until 9:30. We donít require that you come to breakfast at a set time which is why our breakfast is set up buffet style so you can eat at your leisure. If you have special dietary needs you are welcome to bring what you need and store it in the refrigerator and you can also use the microwave to warm things up. More info on breakfast and our current hot item menu is on our website breakfast page.
Registered guests only please in the B&B overnight.
No Pets in the Inn please, if you need local boarding I can recommend the Poochie Parlor in Wellsburg WV just 10 miles away, she is really nice and takes good care of my dogs as well. 304-527-1773.
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 as you come and go. Video surveillance is on 24/7 and we are generally always around.
Extended Stay at the Bayberry House B&B: We offer a good discounted extended stay rate, plus tax, per night for one person, for those staying 15 or more days, call me if you are staying more than 30 days and we can do a monthly rate:
Private room with private bathroom, if you are staying a long time, you may want your own towels, we provide 4 in the room. Please don't wash our towels with your clothes.
this is a special rate for one person and no additional overnight guests per room. Visiting guests nights will be charged at the full retail rate.

Smoking is outside only, violating this police will have you removed from the B&B.
Extended stay reservations do not include breakfast.

You may keep some items in the refrigerator and kitchen, please label them with your name and room number.
