Minimum stays are similar to others in
the area and vary by date.
Check-in starts at 3 pm. There is a self
check-in procedure for late arrivals. Check-out time
is promptly at 11 a.m. At a “small” yet
sprawling inn such as ours, the part-time cleaning crew
must cover a lot of territory during a limited time-frame;
late checkouts compromise our ability to ready rooms
for new guests. A late checkout fee of $25 applies to
guests who have not checked out by 11:30 and $50 if
not out by 12:00 noon. Guests who remain after 12:00
noon are charged for an extra night.
Inverness Valley Inn has only smoke-free
accommodations. Smoking outdoors in designated areas
only. If smoking does occur in the room, a $250 cleaning

Guests will be responsible for damaged
or missing property.
A limited number of rooms are available
to guests with perfectly behaved, flea-free dogs, but
reservations for dogs must be made by telephone. Additional
Pets and livestock live on the premises.
Reservations for groups must be made
by telephone and may qualify for discounts. Group reservations
may also require a deposit and advanced notice of cancellation.
PARENTS OF SMALL CHILDREN: We
welcome families with kids at the Inverness Valley Inn.
Child friendly, however, is not synonymous with letting
children run wild at the expense of others. Unless you
are part of a large family group that is occupying the
entire inn, you do need to pay attention to noise levels
and activities. We do expect parents to supervise and
be responsible for the actions of their children. and
to be sensitive to the needs and expectations of many
guests for a quiet retreat. If you are bringing babies
or small children, please let us know, so that we can
choose a suitable accommodation. We try not to put families
with little children next to adults looking for a quiet
retreat. Children two years and older do count as “people”
in terms of occupancy.
Our family suites are set up to accommodate families
with children. Parents, however, need to be sensitive
to the needs of other guests here for a quiet retreat.
Everyone needs to do their best to observe the quiet
hours from 9 pm to 9 am. Parents of young children with
lots of early morning energy are encouraged to direct
kids to play away from the guest rooms. Many parents
take their children on morning strolls towards the back
of the property to visit the farm animals or play on
the tennis courts, where shrill voices are lost in the
baas, maas, clucks and crows. Others take the kids to
play at Chicken Ranch beach.
HOURS: We ask everyone to observe quiet hours
of 9 pm to 9 am. This being said, when staying here
you may not be the only guest in your building; Therefore,
we ask that you be aware of your noise level as your
neighbors are probably hoping for a quiet relaxing stay.
The Inverness Valley Inn is a big place, and it is surprising
to some how well voices travel in the otherwise still
valley setting. Because most people come to the Inn
for a quiet retreat, guests who part of groups need
to coordinate the time and place of the get together
with the Inn staff. We have several groups of picnic
tables strategically placed a distance from other guests’
rooms. By the Marin County operating permit all outside
social gatherings must be over by 9 pm.
