Welcome to Origins Bed & Breakfast!
Below are our House Rules, as well as our Policies for Booking a Room, Privacy, Safety & Security, and Smoking.
Respect For One Another
We welcome everyone! We appreciate that you chose to stay with us. During the course of your visit, we ask that you be respectful of other guests and of us, of our home and furnishings, and of our outdoor spaces and the abundant wildlife that visits. Kindness, empathy and shared experiences turn strangers into friends!
Smoke Free Environment
In keeping with our healthy living orientation, we maintain a smoke free house and property. This means no tobacco, vaping, or marijuana is allowed. Please respect our standards. This policy includes guestrooms, decks, patios, and all common areas whether inside or outside. Due to the natural landscape, the risk of fire is very high around the property.
If a guest room requires clean up because of smoking odors, a $300 cleaning fee will be assessed to the guest’s payment card.
Please also help us maintain our hypoallergenic atmosphere.
We have no pets. Guests may not bring pets or service animals. Please note that our property is regularly visited by range of native wildlife (e.g. ravens, roadrunners, rabbits, javelinas, foxes, coyotes).
Guests may be sensitive to strong scents and perfumes. We ask that you minimize use of strong scents. No smoking or vaping is allowed on the property. We can provide scent-free candles for your room upon request.
Out of respect for the wildlife that frequents our home, we do not allow non-native animals - including service animals - on our property. Since this is our private residence, we are not considered a place of public accommodation; therefore, we legally need not allow service animals on our property. If you have a service animal, please seek accommodation at one of the many public establishments located in the Verde Valley.
No Feeding Wild Animals
For your safety and for the health of the animals, please do not approach or feed wild animals on or around the property.
We will clean your room only upon your departure. You can leave sheets on the bed, towels on the racks, and trash in the receptacles. We want your stay here to be as restful as possible! Cleaning your room is built into the reservation charge.
Charges for Missing or Damaged Items
We are happy to share our home with you. However, if you cause any damage to our home or its contents, we reserve the right to charge you for its replacement. Specifically, we may charge you to replace missing, broken or damaged items, including furnishings, glassware, utensils, bedding and towels. If we notice anything amiss, we will notify you of replacement costs and will make arrangements with you for payment.
Garbage & Recycling
We are on a septic system. Please dispose of sanitary products, facial tissues and other manufactured items in the waste cans provided; never flush them. Place any recyclable plastic, paper, cans and glass in the recycle waste can located in your kitchenette. We can provide you with reusable water bottles during your stay.
Number of guests per room
Our spacious rooms are designed for a maximum of two guests, with at least one adult per room. We accept reservations for adults and children aged 14 and older; however, due to the location and nature of our landscape, our home is not conducive to young children.
Check-in / Check-out
Check-ins are between 3pm and 6pm. If you require a later check-in, please call ahead and discuss options so we can be there to greet you! If you need to arrive prior to the normal check-in time, the house may not be ready but we do have facilities to store your luggage.
Our normal check-out time is at 11am. We ask you to respect this time since we need to have rooms ready for guests arriving later in the day. If you wish to have your luggage stored until you are ready to leave the vicinity, please ask; we will gladly do so free of charge. Check-outs after 11am will be at a charge of an additional $100 per hour.
For cancellation of reservations made using a charge or credit card, we charge a minimum $25 fee to cover our processing costs.
If you cancel 14 days or more in advance of your first night's stay, your deposit will be fully refunded, less the cancellation fee(*).
If you cancel within 14 days of your first night's stay, your deposit will not be refunded. However, if we do re-book any portion of your reserved accommodation, we will refund that portion of your deposit, less the cancellation fee(*).
If you cancel on or after the day of your scheduled arrival, we will charge you the full amount of your scheduled stay.
* PLEASE NOTE: If we cannot refund your deposit via your charge or credit card, we will reach out to you for a refund alternative.
Quiet hours are 9pm to 9am.
Breakfast is served in our dining room at 8:30am. You are welcome to arrive early to the dining room to enjoy coffee or tea before breakfast is served. We can adjust the breakfast menu or serving time to accommodate your needs; just advise us before or upon arrival.
