Wedding Parties & Multi-Room Rentals

The Boardman House is a small intimate guest house with limited public areas and we can only accommodate wedding parties when all rooms are occupied by the party for a minimum of two nights. The total number of guests is limited to the maximum room occupancy.

There is a strict 60-day cancellation policy for wedding parties and reservations of 3 or more rooms.

The reservation must be made as a single creditcard transaction. No cancellation of one or more rooms will be accepted within 60 days of check-in, when booking 3 or more rooms by the same party.


To guarantee your reservation, a minimum deposit of one night is required. For a stay of two or more nights, a deposit of 50% is required.

Room Rates

Room rates are for single or double occupancy. Additional guest in room $50. Rates are subject to state tax.

During Holidays and Special Events, higher rates are applicable and a minimum stay of 2 nights may be required.

Please note that no outside additional guests are allowed without prior permission.


The Boardman House does not serve breakfast, but there are many charming options for breakfast nearby.

Cancellations & Changes

To ensure fairness, we consistently apply our cancellation policy (based on date of cancellation) not on situation and therefore we do not take liability for

cancelled events, weather, accidents, health, family concerns etc. All cancellations must be made in writing via email to the Boardman House.

Your reservation is not cancelled until you receive a cancellation confirmation from our office.

Due to our intimate size, cancellations impact us greatly, and therefore your deposit is only refundable if the reservation is cancelled 14/30/60 days prior to arrival, less a $50 processing fee per room.

Multiple rooms, Holidays and Special Events 30 days

Whole house reservations and Wedding Parties 60 days

Holidays and Special Events are Goodspeed Festival of New Artists, Memorial Day weekend, Labor Day weekend and Columbus Day weekend.

The inn is a historic building and smoking is not allowed for the safety and health of our guests. In addition burning of Candles is strictly prohibited.

Damages & Breakage

Guests are responsible for missing items, extensive cleaning, damages to, or breakages of any items in any of the guest rooms or public areas. We reserve the right to charge guests the cost of missing items, rectifying damage, caused by the deliberate, negligent or reckless act of the guest to the hotel’s property or structure. Should this damage/missing items come to light after the guest has departed, we reserve the right to make a charge to the guest’s credit / debit card, or send an invoice for the amount to the registered address. We will however make every effort to rectify any damage internally prior to contracting specialists to make the repairs, and therefore will make every effort to keep any costs that the guest would incur to a minimum.
