Bed & Breakfast Policies | Captain David Kelley House, Centerville, MA

Minimum stay requirements

A two-night minimum stay applies during high season (May 1-Columbus Day). Please call for one-night availability. We may be able to accommodate your one-night stay if we have an opening. 



A 50% deposit is taken for stays of three nights or more. For two-night stays or less, a 100% deposit is collected at the time of booking. Lodging tax is 11.7%, plus the Cape Cod Water Treatment tax is 2.75%. We accept MasterCard, VISA and American Express. Deposits will not be refunded for failure to arrive, arrival after confirmed arrival date, or premature departure.


Balance payment

Balance will be charged to your card 14 days prior to arrival; a new confirmation will be emailed to you.


Cancellation policy

As a small business, cancellations affect us greatly. When a deposit is made, your room(s) is/are guaranteed for the entire stay, and guests are responsible for the entire balance of nights reserved. Cancellation received 15 or more calendar days (30 or more calendar days for stays of 7 nights or more, or when reserving multiple rooms) prior to your reserved arrival date will be refunded in full, less a $45.00 processing fee. For cancellations made less than 15 days in advance (or 30 days as noted above), refunds are subject to the re-rental of the accommodations.

Reservations booked through an online travel partner are non-refundable. Booking directly with us through our website or by phone will offer you the previously noted cancellation and refund options.

We highly recommend purchasing travel insurance to cover last-minute cancellation expenses.



Convenient free on-street parking is directly in front of CDK House. Limited off-street parking is available across the street from CDK House.



Guests are invited to check-in daily between the hours of 3:00 and 6:00 pmLater arrivals are accommodated – let us know if you’ll be arriving after 6:00 p.m. and we’ll place your keys and directions to your room in the main entry.

Wedding parties

As a precaution, reservations for wedding parties necessitate our collecting a $700 deposit to cover potential property damage above and beyond normal wear and tear.  This damage deposit is payable by check no less than 30 days prior to arrival.  This is in addition to the 50% room reservation deposit and is refundable within 14 calendar days following the wedding party’s departure.  Assessment and repair of damaged oriental carpets or antiques may delay your refund.  If this should happen, you will be notified by email.  It is not our intent to profit from this policy, only to protect our investment in the Captain David Kelley House.

    Although GA records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us. GA also records your computer’s IP address, which could be used to personally identify you, but Google does not grant us access to this. We consider Google to be a third-party data processor. GA makes use of cookies, details of which can be found on Google’s developer guides. Our website uses the analytics.js implementation of GA. Disabling cookies on your internet browser will stop GA from tracking any part of your visit to pages within this website.

However, the email ID of the customer is deleted from their database as soon as the purchase is complete.

This policy covers the use of cookies and other technologies. The types of cookies we use fall into 3 categories:

    These are vital for the running of our services on our websites and apps. Without the use of these cookies parts of our websites would not function. For example, session cookies allow a navigation experience that is consistent and optimal to the user’s network speed and choice of device.

They also help identify any difficulties you have accessing our services, so we can fix any problems. Additionally, these cookies allow us to see overall patterns of usage at an aggregated level.
    We use these types of technologies to provide advertisements that are more relevant to your interests. This can be done by delivering online advertising based on your previous web browsing activity. Cookies are placed on your browser which will store details of websites you have visited. Advertising based on what you have been looking at is then displayed to you when you visit websites that use the same advertising networks.
    We may also use cookies and similar technologies to provide you with advertisements based on your location, offers you click on, and other similar interactions with our websites and apps.


We will report any unlawful data breach of this website’s database or the database(s) of any of our third party data processors to any and all relevant persons and authorities within 72 hours of the breach if it is apparent that personal data stored in an identifiable manner has been stolen.
