On this page are The Sidecar Inn policies on deposits, cancellations and refunds, tobacco use, and pets (including emotional support animals). The Privacy Policy is available on a separate page. Please contact Roger if there are any questions.

Deposits, Cancellations and Refunds

Because we are a small B&B, cancellations have a significant impact on our business. We strongly urge the purchase of Travel Insurance to protect your vacation investment from unexpected issues.

A deposit of the first night’s stay, including taxes, is required via credit card, and the balance is due upon arrival or will be charged at the end of the check-in window.

Full refund if cancelled more than 30-days prior to arrival, 50% if cancelled between 30-days and 14-days prior to arrival, and no refund if cancelled within 14-days of arrival.

Tobacco Use Policy

The Sidecar Inn Bed & Breakfast is a no-smoking/vaping facility indoors and in the common areas outside. This includes all forms of smoking or vaping. Anyone found smoking or vaping in the listed areas will be charged additional cleaning fees, and repeated use will result in the guest being asked to leave. This is for the health and safety of everyone at the Sidecar Inn.

Sidecar Inn Pet Policy

We understand guests requesting to bring their pets to The Sidecar Inn. Unfortunately we are not currently in a position to accommodate animal companions, including emotional support animals. This restriction does not include trained service animals as mandated by law. Under the ADA, a service animal is defined as a dog that has been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability.  The task(s) performed by the dog must be directly related to the person’s disability.

We recommend Boyds Creek Animal Hospital for boarding. They are located about eight miles from us in Seymour. This is where we board Sami when traveling and unable to take her with us. Dr. Brandi Dukes is Sami’s veterinarian.

They are located at: 11653 Chapman Highway, Seymour, TN 37865. Or call (865) 577-2738
