We want all our guests to have a fun visit at Brindley's but feel it inappropriate for any guest or group of guests to conduct themselves in a way that is disruptive of other guests right to enjoy the peace and tranquility of our north woods setting. Inappropriate behavior includes door slamming, playing of loud music, or loud and boisterous voices. Quiet time is observed between 10:30 PM and 9:00 AM. Late night fireside gatherings likely to create loud voices and loud laughter are permitted at the "Point", well away from guest cottages.
- Bring your own bath & beach towels.
- Bring your own bath soaps & personal hygiene items.
- We don’t allow pets.
- In summer, we have a minimum stay of three nights.
- Please do not arrive before check-in times.
INCLUSIONS & EXCLUSIONS
Brindley’s Deposit Policy
To confirm a reservation we require a deposit of * two times the summer nightly rental rate for the lodging unit. We do not require deposits for boat, harbor slip, golf cart or other equipment rental.
* For group reservations requiring three or more lodging units, the deposit is 3 times the summer nightly rental rate and full payment of the pre-tax lodging charges 60 days before scheduled arrival.
We hold new current year telephone reservations for up to 10 days while payment is issued and mailed. If no deposit is received within 10 days the reservation may be canceled and any unit requested will be made available for rental by others.
Departing guests have first option for renting the same unit for the same (equivalent) period the following year. If any reservation request, new or rebooking, is made before January of the reservation year, we require a $50 non-refundable partial deposit ($100 for 4 and 5 bedroom units) to have a lodging unit assigned and removed from general availability.
In early December of the year before the reservation, we will mail a request for the appropriate deposit. This deposit is due February 1 of the reservation year.
Should a guest have circumstances that make our policy unworkable, please contact us, we will try to accommodate special needs.
CANCELLATIONS – April 16, 2020
If guests are considering canceling a reservation due to Covid-19 concerns, our first suggestion is that they reschedule their visit to a date later in 2020. All deposits for the original reservation will be applied to the rescheduled 2020 reservation.
If a guest cancels any reservation, their deposit is not refundable, unless, we are able to re-rent the lodging unit(s) for the full period of the confirmed reservation. Should a refund be appropriate, a $50 cancellation fee will be deducted from the refund.
The Covid-19 virus causes concerns and many unknowns for Brindley’s, our Guests, our employees and our vendors. Because of the pandemic, we will waive our previous policy which held Guests responsible for full payment of the lodging charge for the entire length of their canceled reservation.
If a guest cancels and has made advance reservation payments in excess of the minimum required deposit to confirm a reservation, we will apply the excess to a new reservation at a future date or promptly refund the excess by check.
If, due to the virus the State of Minnesota or the Federal government issue an order to close or not seasonally open our resort, we will attempt to reschedule reservations for later in 2020.
The Campbell family is yet unsure how we will handle government canceled reservations that cannot be rescheduled in 2020. It is our intent to continue fully paid payroll for our valued employees. They have been loyal and committed to helping the success of Brindley’s Harbor Resort. We, as do most families and businesses, still have mortgage and other financial obligations. We are attempting to secure SBA and other loans that we hope will enable us to weather the tribulations of Covid-19. Major cancellations would have devastating financial implications for our business.
Thank you for being our guests. Hopefully there will soon be substantial reduction in the spread of the virus and life for all will return to normal.
