Terms and Conditions
Check in time is after 3pm. Room/tent checkout is by 11am. Check out for the property is 1pm. If a late check-in is required (after 9pm), please contact us to make special arrangements. We try to be flexible where possible. It’s not a problem for the B&B rooms, but it’s difficult to show you to your tent in the dark.
Due to the nature of this business, we only have a limited amount of accommodation and we do have to turn people away.
All requests to cancel any booking should be made initially by telephone and must be promptly followed up by you in writing (email being acceptable for these purposes). Upon receipt of your written request to cancel someone from Harmony Outdoor Inn will promptly acknowledge your request in writing.
Should you have to cancel your booking with more than 14 days notice – you will receive a full refund except for a $50 transaction fee from the payment. Should you have to cancel between 3-14 days of your booking – we will deduct 50% from your payment. Should you choose to cancel within 72 hours of your booking – you will not receive a refund.
Refunds for full facility rental cancellations: If you have to cancel more than 30 days before the start of a booking then a full refund less a 20% transaction and admin fee. If you have to cancel within 30-days a refund less 50% transaction and admin fee. If you cancel within 14 days we can not offer a discount on the booking.
Maximum of 2 people per room or tent. We will allow one extra person if it is your teenager sharing a tent with you. We do have a cot we can provide but you must bring him/her a sleeping bag and pillow. We do not allow three adults to share a tent.
Our property is large and has rough terrain throughout – at times you may experience slippery or wet paths. We strongly encourage the use of proper outdoor shoes at all times. Our paths have solar lights along them but they are not enough to see clearly. Every person on site must have a headlamp or flashlight to find your way to your tent at night, your cell phone isn’t enough. Guests must use caution. We assume no liability for individuals on our property. Please be careful.
There are many obstacles on site that children could hurt themselves on. There is also an unsupervised waterfront. For the comfort and safety of everyone we do not allow children under the age of 13.
Harmony is a retreat centre with daily morning yoga from 8am to 9am at our waterfront that requires quiet while in practice. We ask that everyone please enjoy and respect this. Everyone on site, must respect the sounds of nature and let those sounds be the ones that everyone hears. Laughter is always welcome.
Please do not pull any bark from any trees. We have had guests pull bark from birch trees to light the campfire. This will kill the tree. As a guest on our property we ask for respect for the trees.
We provide the correct materials to start a fire in our secure fire pit. There are no fires allowed anywhere else on site. You must be over the age of eighteen to use the fire pit.
We ask that you don’t bring glass to your tent or the waterfront.
While we acknowledge that many people come here for a romantic getaway, we ask that you not bring any candles on site. Each tent has solar lights in it. As you can imagine, it scares us to think of anyone lighting anything flammable in our tents, so please leave the candles at home, watch a sunset together instead.
No Tobacco products on site
If you must smoke a cigarette, you may do so in the lower parking lot and use the bin provided.
Please note, for the comfort of our guests, dogs cannot be accommodated on our property. We would be happy to provide a pet kennel contact.
