Terms & Policies


Ripples Inn at the Harbor is a small business and last minute cancellations greatly effect us. Please carefully read our cancellation policy and let us know if you have any questions, in advance of making your reservation.


A deposit of one day's rate is required to confirm reservations. Your deposit will be applied to the last day of your reservation. Reservations cancelled at least 14 days prior to arrival dates are subject to a 25% cancellation fee. All other cancellations will result in loss of deposit. Refunds are not given for inclement weather.

Guests will be charged in advance a one-day NONREFUNDABLE deposit upon making a reservation for the festivals (during which a 2-day minimum stay is required). This applies to the Blues Festival in July, the Lobster Festival in August as well as the Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors Show in August. If a cancellation is necessary, please provide us notice prior to fourteen days—only one day deposit is refundable and then will be subject to a 25% cancellation fee.

pets and animal allergies:

In addition to being a pet-friendly inn, we are home to two very cute and friendly dogs, Isabella and Ricardo. They are small, hypoallergenic (non shedding) Havanese. While Rico and Bella's home is in Sandi's residence, and they do not roam guest rooms, if you have sensitivities, please be aware that dogs live at the inn and may be present in the common areas.

If you have a pet you would like to bring along with you on your vacation, we have one pet-friendly room available and are happy to accommodate small, quiet, well-behaved pets. Please contact us if you are seeking pet-friendly accommodations.
