Top of the Ridge Farm is a small boutique bed & breakfast. Therefore, we are significantly affected by cancellations and must adhere to a strict cancellation policy. Although we understand situations arise making cancellations unavoidable, we do not take responsibility for changes to your reservation due to delayed arrivals, early departures, inclement weather, unforeseen changes to travel plans, medical or family emergencies, work conflicts, missed or cancelled flights, pandemics, force majeure, etc. We highly encourage guests to consider purchasing trip insurance in the event an emergency arises that impedes your travel plans (compare options at www.insuremytrip.com). Guests who fail to show up for their reservation will be charged automatically for the entire stay without further notification. If you need to leave before breakfast is served, please let us know before 6 pm the night before and we will be happy to prepare a bagged breakfast to take with you.
