Our Policies

As a small establishment, we have found it necessary to establish the following policies:

Your room rate includes a full gourmet breakfast served each morning between 8:30am and 9:00am, use of the spacious outdoor porch, free high-speed internet access, and off-street parking (limited). Visit our website for all included in-room and house amenities.

For the health and safety of our guests, smoking is not allowed inside. Only two guests per room—no exceptions. For the comfort of all guests on vacation, children over the age of 10 are welcome but must be accompanied by a family member. Sorry, we cannot accommodate pets. Any violation of these policies will result in being asked to find other accommodations and no refunds will be issued.



A first-night deposit (plus tax) is required to secure your reservation and will be billed to your Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express or Diner’s Club credit card.

The remainder of your balance is due at check-in and can be paid with credit card, traveler’s checks, or cash. Your reservation is not confirmed until your deposit has been successfully processed and a confirmation has been sent to the email address you provide.


Check-In & Check-Out Policy:

Check-In time is 3pm to 5pm
If you will be arriving later than 5pm, please contact us to make late check-in arrangements. It is rare that we can accommodate an early check-in but we are always happy to store baggage. Please call to make advance arrangements.

Check-Out time is before 11am . Late check-out must be arranged in advance with the Innkeeper or the Assistant Innkeeper to assure there is ample time to prepare the room for guests arriving that day.


Cancellation Policy:

Cancellations affect us greatly, therefore we ask you to agree to the following cancellation policy at the time of booking:

If your plans change after your reservation is confirmed, cancellation notice is required 14-days in advance of your arrival date. With a 14-day or greater advance notice, we will refund your credit card any deposit(s) made minus a $25 cancellation fee for each individual guest room reserved. The $25 cancellation fee also applies to changes in your arrival/departure date that result in a shorter stay.

Reservations cancelled less than 14-days prior to your arrival date, will be charged in-full on the original date of arrival, unless we are able to re-book your room(s) with another party. We will make every effort to re-book your room(s) and will refund any room(s) we are able to re-book minus a $25 cancellation fee for each guest room reserved.

All canceled reservations, regardless of notice or reason, will be charged a $25 minimum cancellation fee.

No refunds are provided for late arrivals, early departures, or no-shows.

The nation’s third oldest Zoological Gardens are only a block away at the Buffalo Zoo, and on summer nights on the porch, you can hear the roars of lions, trumpeting of elephants, and barking of sea lions off in the distance. But there’s no need to leave The Parkside House to visit the animal kingdom.

Our friendly dogs requests your presence for a quick pat on the head in the sunroom at the back of the house. Chris introduces us to his furry friends.

Drew, a Japanese Chin Toy Poodle mix that we rescued eleven years ago will greet you at the door. She is non allergic and enjoys watching over the inn. Raquel, our Golden Retriever, will jump up and down when she meets you and spends her days luxuriating in the sunroom. Our newest addition is Cinco which we brought back from Puebla, Mexico. She is a Mexican Hairless (Xoloitzcuintli) and spends her days playing with Raquel. You can watch them run and play in the back yard from the upper balcony.


Only registered guests are allowed on the property.
