Cancellation Policy:

If the cottage reservation is cancelled at least 45 days prior to arrival:  75% of the rent paid will be refunded initially. If the cottage is eventually re-booked, the remainder of your rental fee will be refunded less a $25 administration fee.

If the reservation is cancelled fewer than 45 days prior to arrival:  no refund is given unless the cottage is re-booked. If the cottage is rebooked, your rental fee plus security deposit will be refunded after the scheduled week has passed, less a $25 administration fee.

In the event of personal emergencies, we will make every effort to book you another period, if one is available that fits your schedule during the current rental season. The replacement must be of equal or less value.

Trip Interruption: Guests shall not be entitled to any refund or rebate due to illness, acts of nature, unfavorable weather, disruption of utility services, or any other situation occurring not under our control. Trip interruption/cancellation insurance is highly recommended to protect against unexpected events.

Any travel agent can recommend a source for purchasing trip interruption/cancellation insurance.    While we have not used and therefore cannot recommend the company at the following link, it is the company used by many renters in Southern Shores: https://www.generalitravelinsurance.com. The Clarke Cottage will not give refunds or other compensation due to any of the above listed conditions under trip interruptions.


  1. Hurricanes – If there is a mandatory evacuation of Southern Shores, a pro-rated refund will be given for each day the evacuation is in effect.
  2. Covid19 Restriction of Non-residents – Should a confirmed renter find that they need to cancel due to an issue related to the situation created by Covid19, a full refund will be made, if adequate notice is given.  We encourage those with rental reservations to keep updated about the impact of Covid19 by visiting the Dare County website: https://www.darenc.com/departments/health-human-services/coronavirus. We will keep those with reservations apprised of changes that will impact the week of their reservation as we become aware of them.
