The Fine Print
Visiting Friends of Guests
We do not allow any day visitors with the exception of friends of guests that are staying at the resort. Friends may visit for the day, but are not allowed to stay overnight in the guests’ room. Please check with the Front Desk for our day charge.
A deposit of $100 per night per accommodation up to a maximum of $500 per week is required to reserve any accommodation.
If written notice of cancellation is received 21 or more days prior to your arrival date, your deposit will be refunded minus a $25 bookkeeping charge.
As is the policy with most resorts, guests on all-inclusive packages who cancel part of their reservation within 21 days of arrival or depart prior to their confirmed departure date will be charged the high season daily rate for the days stayed, and will forfeit their deposit unless we are able to rent the accommodation that was cancelled.
Guests in cottages with kitchens who cancel part of their reservation within 21 days of their arrival or depart prior to their confirmed departure date will be charged for the entire length of their original reservation unless we are able to rent their accommodation for the full period reserved.
Paying For Your Stay
All rates are quoted and payable in Canadian dollars. We accept cash, travellers cheques, certified personal cheques, Visa, Master Card, American Express, and debit cards. Unless prior credit is established, we do not accept personal cheques.
Our rates are quoted in Canadian dollars. However, we do accept US currency at the prevailing exchange rates. The currency converter below shows the conversion rate applicable to exchanges of large amounts of currency at major world money centers, and is intended to show only the approximate conversion at any given time. The rate we are able to receive from our local bank when we deposit US currency is generally about 2% below this rate. The rate of exchange that we quote may change when your actual payment is made.

Rate & Policy Changes
Rates and policies are subject to change without notice and are not guaranteed until your reservation has been confirmed in writing. Severn Lodge reserves the right to refuse or cancel any reservation without notice or cause, and if done so, will refund any deposits in full.
For the comfort of all of our guests, pets are not permitted at Severn Lodge. Please inquire about nearby kennels. Guests staying at our offsite cottage Westview are welcome to bring well behaved pets as long as they are kept on a leash at all times. Owners must immediately clean up all pet waste. You will be responsible for any damage to property done by your pet.
We do not apply any additional mandatory fees other than the government mandated 13% sales tax (HST). Many resorts apply additional mandatory fees to leisure guest invoices. These have names such as service charge, resort charge, resort fee, facility fee, destination fee, amenity fee, etc., and are usually an additional 10-15% of the invoice total. The only exception to this policy is for groups such as conferences, meetings, weddings, etc.
To reward our employees for exemplary work, many are able to participate in a wage bonus program where they are rewarded at the end of their work contract based upon various performance measures agreed to prior to signing their work contract. This allows these employees to qualify for an additional bonus above and beyond their wages. Although employees do not expect it, many guests do ask us about leaving an additional tip or gratuity to those employees who have given them exceptional service. We hesitate to provide any guidance and prefer to leave this decision up to you.
