Before making reservations for your stay, be sure to look over the following policies, and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. The Reynolds Mansion practices policies and procedures in accordance with the Pennsylvania Innkeepers’ Rights Act of 1996.
Bed and Breakfast Policies
Check-In: Anytime AFTER 4:00 pm. Please do not arrive before 4:00pm. We guarantee that your room is held for you, so there is no reason to drop off your bags. If you will be arriving after 9:00pm, please call us with your ETA so that we can meet you and show you up to your room. Guests often request early check-ins, but unfortunately, it is very difficult for us to accommodate these requests. We do not have a staff to assist us with check-ins, so between our 11 am check-out time and the 4 pm check-in time is our only chance to prepare for the next guests to arrive. During this time we have to make sure that the rooms are clean and ready for incoming guests, as well as run errands such as grocery shopping, etc. so we cannot guarantee that we will be home, or that the room will be ready, before 4 pm. Obviously, there are exceptions, ie. early flights coming into the area or arriving early to prepare for your own wedding. However, you are more than welcome to park your car in our parking lot and walk to town to enjoy downtown Victorian Bellefonte. We are sorry for the possible inconvenience and hope that you understand this policy. Thanks! Tricia and Mike
Check-out: by 11:00 a.m for all 8 rooms in the mansion. Check-out by noon for the Carriage House Suites.
We have taken enhanced health and safety measures for us, our guests, and our staff. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. By visiting the Reynolds Mansion Bed and Breakfast, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19. Please help keep each other healthy. We do ask that you wear your mask when checking in and when using the common areas. One last thing…as we make our way through this COVID world, we realize that many of you are still not comfortable eating in restaurants. If you are bringing take-out of any kind to the mansion, we insist that you eat it in our dining room and not up in your guest room. We really appreciate your cooperation!
