Staying at The Vermeer Bed & Breakfast for vacation? Just passing through Surry County? Sightseeing on the Blue Ridge Parkway? Here for a business trip? Here are some things you need to know before you arrive. Thank you for making a reservation at The Vermeer Bed & Breakfast. This page contains important information about your reservation. Please take a moment to read it carefully. Save a copy for your future reference.


A fifty percent deposit is required in order to guarantee a room with all single-night reservations charged in full on the date they are made. All deposits must be made by credit card at the time of booking and will be guaranteed with the credit card on file.
The balance is due 15 days from booking (except for The Autumn Leaves Festival and Mayberry Days when balance is due 30 days from arrival).

Deposits may be made by personal check, but the check must be received within 15 days from the date that the reservation is made with the check for the balance due 30 days from arrival. We do not accept personal checks at check-in.

A two-night minimum is required for weekends (Friday and Saturday) and during The Autumn Leaves Festival and Mayberry Days.

Booking for a group? A group whole-house reservation will be held on a single credit card with a 50% deposit.


When making a reservation, please consider the economic impact that cancellations have on small inns. Given that The Vermeer Bed & Breakfast is a five-room inn, we are unable to withstand the loss of income that may result from a short-notice cancellation. While we are making a commitment to you by reserving your chosen room, you are making one to us as well.

We understand that sometimes cancellations are unavoidable. If a cancellation becomes necessary, please note:

• With a 15-day notice of cancellation, your deposit minus a $30.00 re-booking fee will be refunded
• Less than a 15-day notice of cancellation, you will be responsible for all room charges. In addition
• Holidays, weekends, special events and reservations for groups may require longer cancellation notice confirmed at the time the reservation is made
• A request to move or cancel are charged full amount. A request to change dates is considered a cancellation
• No-shows and same-day cancellations: By not allowing any possibility of rebooking the room, no-shows and same-day cancellations will incur full cost of the reservation
• There are no refunds for early departure. We reserve the right to treat a partial cancellation as a cancellation for the entire stay
• $40 re-booking fee applied per room booked covering administrative/credit card processing
• If the room cancellation is made less than 30 days before the first date of your reservation, half the nightly room rate will be charged unless we are able re-book your room
• Early departures are viewed as cancellations
• Group bookings of 3 or more rooms require 90-day notice of cancellation for 50% refund

Cancellations must be received by telephone call only.

Trip insurance is offered by several companies. We strongly encourage you to take advantage of this low-cost option offering emergency protection of your funds.

We have no recommendation for a particular company, but here are a few to consider:
