We have LADY BUGS in Brown County. They arrive in mass in October and stay the winter. You may see a few. A beneficial bug with a spicy smell looking for a warm spot to winter. We do not use pest control. We do use a vacuum daily.
If you have a problem with lady bugs we are happy to change the date of your stay. As we never know exactly when they will arrive, we make that offer to our October guests once the little buggers have swarmed in.
Rooms facing south will have more little visitors.
They are good bugs. They eat bad bugs.

If a room has special meaning to you (he proposed to me in this room) please make staff aware that you would prefer a change of date to a change of room assignment. This should be done via email after receiving your email confirmation.

We hope you enjoy your stay with us. However, occasionally things do go wrong. TV's, hot tubs, kitchenettes and other special amenities occasionally experience mechanical problems. Brown County is a rural community and utilities do not have the same uptime as urban locations.
No refunds shall be given with regards to special amenities and/or utility outages.

Guests agree that if guests find any problems with our accommodations and fail to provide us the opportunity to address those problems while the guest is with us, and/or refuses our proposed remedy, and then falsely disparages us in any public manner but then refuses to retract any such public statements legal action may be pursued.

Guests agree that they are healthy and fit and capable of navigating steps, stairs and hot tubs without assistance and have NO allergies/conditions that would prohibit them staying at Abbey Inn & Suites in Brown County Indiana. (No refunds shall be issued should guests choose to leave for said reasons).

All Guests must provide a valid CREDIT card. In addition to payment for the room, we will place a hold (not a charge) on the card prior to your arrival to ensure that it is a valid/working card for any incidentals or damages. Should the card on file not accept said hold, guest must supply a working credit card at or before check in. The damage hold will be released by the bank 7-10 days after check-out, provided that there are no damages. If there are damages found, then Abbey Management reserves the right to extract this fee from the card on file. Charges* to Guest's card may include, but are not limited to: damages over and above normal wear and tear, stained linens, theft, defamation, excessive cleanup and/or trash, unwashed dishes, unreturned keys, complaints from other guests, unauthorized late check-outs and evidence of pets or smoking in room.

The west gate is 1 mile west of Abbey-Inn. Brown County State Park offers swimming, hiking and horse back riding. It also offers romantic picnic spots with vistas that rival the Smoky Mountains.

Please remember you are coming to the woods! If you are lucky you will be greeted only by Brown County Lady Bugs upon your arrival. (We do not charge extra for the experience.) They are harmless and in fact quite beneficial to the environment. Always be aware there are some critters around that can be bothersome (ants & wood roaches) and even dangerous, including wasps, ticks, spiders & snakes.

The wood roach is a pesky problem in Brown County. It normally lives under the loose bark of dead trees, logs or stumps. They are fairly good fliers and often enter rooms when doors are left open at night. They require moisture so may be seen around our hottubs. Wood roaches do not survive indoors and the presence of wood roaches is strictly a temporary annoyance.

If you are allergic to insects or pollen be sure to bring your anithistimine. If you plan to visit the park bring bug repellant, sunscreen, etc. We cannot control Mother Nature or her critters!

Any damage to rooms, bedding, furniture, hot tubs, linens, and/or theft or EXTRA cleaning will be BILLED to your credit card. Beds and hot tubs do have weight load limits. Customers of size must inquire prior to making reservations. Bed frames, carpet, linens & Hot Tubs are expensive...Please be careful.

Guests who leave rooms damaged and/or "trashed" will be charged for the clean up and/or repair.

Smoking in a non-smoking room or pets in a non-pet room will cause a $200.00
cleaning fee to be charged to your credit card.

*A damage HOLD or authorization of at least $200 is placed on the CREDIT card on file before you arrive. It is released automatically after 7-10 days if no damage is found. If damage is found that hold will be claimed. The minimum damage charge is $50 which includes the actual damage plus the extra staff time to deal with the damage. The damage hold has been increased due to a significant increase in damage to bed and bath linens by guests. Hair and body products mix with hot tub chemicals and damage linens. All guests are required to shower before and after using the hot tubs.

**The fee for a CREDIT card chargeback is $25.00. It's a processing fee charged by the CC company to enable them to keep regular service fees at a minimum.
