Frequently Asked Questions



We have a special thing, what can you do for us?

Celebrating your anniversary? A birthday? Babymoon? The 6th anniversary of adopting your worst cat? Let us know and we just might leave a fancy chocolate bar on your pillow. We can also help coordinate something special from a local merchant to leave in the room as a surprise; like flowers from Flowerkraut or The Rosery, wine or local whisky from Hudson Wine Merchants, a cheese plate from Talbot & Arding, a triple-layer browned butter rice krispie treat cake with chocolate buttercream and dinosaur sprinkles made by yours truly...


What about early check in & late checkout?

Check in starts at 3pm and checkout is at noon. We are always happy to accommodate early check in and late check out when possible, but it depends on our reservation calendar. Check with us the week of your stay and we'll let you know exactly what we can do to give you as much Batterby House time as possible.


I see you have cats...

We have two cats, Tipsy & Willie, they live on the 3rd floor with us. They are not allowed in the guestrooms, and are rarely allowed in the common areas of the inn (only when guests request to meet them and no one else with allergies is in-house). We’ve had many guests who have cat allergies who have been very comfortable at Batterby House. Pictured is our cranky, special needs cat Tipsy. He loves me very much (?)
