At the O-Bar-O we understand situations arise making cancellations unavoidable. However, last minute cancellations are difficult to fill as our guests reserve stays far in advance. We have created these cancellation policies with fairness for all in mind:
If you must CANCEL your Cabin reservation, please call us 30 days in advance of your arrival date. You will receive a refund of your deposit, less a $75 cancellation fee. If you cancel with less than 30 days notice, we will retain your deposit and charge a $75 cancellation fee. If you cancel within 14 days prior to your arrival, you will be responsible for the entire reservation payment plus a $75 cancellation fee. (Unless you choose Travel Protection!)
If you need to POSTPONE your Cabin Reservation, please contact us as soon as possible, and no later than 14 days in advance of your arrival. We will carry your deposit forward to another reservation date that is available. We are unable to postpone reservations (carry deposits forward) within that 14 days prior to your scheduled arrival — it’s just too hard to fill the empty cabins. So let us know ASAP (and certainly 14 days prior) about any plan changes.
Multiple Cabin Bookings require a 60 day cancellation notice — including family reunions, and for holidays and special events. This applies regardless if one person pays for all of the cabins or each cabin is paid individually. If canceled 60 days prior to your arrival date, you will receive a refund less a $75 cancellation fee PER CABIN canceled. If you want to postpone your multi-cabin reservation, we will need 60 days notice to carry your deposit forward to the rebooking at no charge.
If you shorten your stay or check out early no refund will be issued.
Rates/policies are subject to change and may vary during high impact periods and special requests.
We have very clear cancellation policies and if you have to cancel 14 days prior to your reservation starting, you are responsible for the full stay. HOWEVER… through our Reservation System Travel Protection program, you can protect yourself if you have to cancel within 14 days of your arrival. When you book your stay, choose Travel Protection. Pay the full price of the reservation when booking. If you have to cancel within the 14 days prior to your arrival for reasons outlined in the Protection Plan, then you will receive a full refund less the 10% travel protection fee. This applies to reservations canceled within 14 days of arrival, otherwise our Cancellation policies stand.
Accommodation fees apply for groups reserving 4 or more cabins. Please call for policies and pricing.
Groups reserving three or more cabins are required to pay a damage deposit of $200 per cabin due at the time balance is paid. Your damage deposit will be refunded to you within one week of departure if your cabins, decks and the grounds are left in satisfactory condition. The Accommodation fee is separate from the damage deposit.
Reservations are strongly suggested. An advance payment of one night’s stay is required at the time of reservation. The balance of payment will be due upon arrival. If you would like to pay in full in advance, that is fine too. Payment will be processed at 6PM the day of scheduled arrival using the card given for the deposit. Sometimes, last minute cabins may be available. When making reservations, please specify the exact dates of arrival and departure as well as the number of guests in your party. State and local taxes are not included in quoted prices.
Occupancy rates are based on 2 Guests for Birdsnest, Creekside & Chipmunk and 4 Guests for Riverview, Columbine, Hummingbird, Bluespruce, Aspen & Ponderosa. Some cabins can accommodate up to 6 Guests. Each extra registered person charge is $30 per day (age two and over). For the comfort of our registered Guests any unregistered Guests will be charged $100 per day, per person.
There are minimum night stays required. Check the availability calendar for information. If your initial dates are reserved, simply email or call for availability or if you would like to be contacted in the event of a cancellation – we keep an active waiting list.
All cabins have fully equipped kitchens and views out picture windows that face the river. All cabins have either a stone gas fireplace or freestanding gas stove. Cabins feature covered porches or redwood decks or flagstone patios. For the comfort of our guests, O-Bar-O is a smoke free property.
Your Private Cabin Has Received Special Care
With 9 riverfront cabins, O-Bar-O has the unique ability to put special measures in place quickly and efficiently for your added comfort, health, and safety. We are happy to provide any specific services you might require to make your stay in Durango the very best.
Some of our extra health and safety protocol include:
• While we pride ourselves on being as kind to the environment as possible, right now, we are using only cleaning products approved for the Hospitality Industry by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
• Hand sanitizer is available in every cabin as well as in our office. The sanitizer is made locally in Durango by Honeyville and is called “Bear-y Clean”. This sanitizer is also available for purchase in our gift shop.
Please call us at 970.259.3649 or email us so we can answer your questions.
Our grocery stores (City Market, Albertsons, Wal-Mart, and Nature’s Oasis) all accept online ordering. Order before you arrive and pick up or we can pick up for you!
Our housekeeping (or cabin-keeping) team is amazing. Each person goes through an extensive training on cleaning expectations and presentation of every cabin. We do not add any service charge to your bill or amenity fees. Tips for our team are greatly appreciated if you feel they have added positively to your experience.
