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.
Check-In: 4:00 - 9:00pm. 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. 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.
Deposits: For a one-night stay, the full amount will be charged to your credit card at the time you make your reservation. For two or more nights, a deposit equivalent to the first night's stay plus tax is required at the time you make your reservation. We do not accept reservations more than one year in advance.
Usage: Please note that booking a night's stay at the Reynolds Mansion Bed and Breakfast entitles only the paying guests to the night's stay, breakfast, and use of the common areas. It does not include use of any part or all of the house for wedding preparation, photography, or inviting extra friends/relatives/children without prior consent of the owners. The Reynolds Mansion reserves the right to cancel a reservation that does not comply with these standards.
Cancellations: Cancellations received more than 14 days prior to the arrival date receive a full refund minus $25 processing fee. Cancellations made within 14 days may result in forfeiture of your deposit. If you need to cancel your stay, you must call the Reynolds Mansion (814) 353-8407 and speak with either Mike or Tricia. Email cancellations are not valid. A gift certificate for another stay may be issued in lieu of deposit forfeiture at the discretion of the management. **See below for special event policies.
If you are redeeming a gift certificate and cancel within 14 days of your reservation, you will forfeit all or part of the gift certificate as is equal to the first night's stay deposit. No exceptions.
Smoking: We are a non-smoking property. Smoking, burning candles, or burning incense is not permitted in any of the rooms or common areas. Smoking is only permitted outside. There is a minimum $250 charge to deodorize your room.

Rates may be higher for special events*. A two-night minimum may also be required for special events*. We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover cards.
***Penn State Graduation Policy: Reservations for graduation will be taken at any time; however, deposits are not taken until January.

***Special event reservations (including football) require 30 days' notice of cancellation prior to the arrival date in order to avoid a forfeiture of deposit.

These events include, but are not limited to, Blue/White Weekend, Blue Chip Basketball, Arts Festival, Student Arrival, Parents' Weekend, and Football weekends.
