For your convenience, reservations may be made Online and by Phone. Phone reservations offer an opportunity to discuss the vacation options available, answer questions, and give you a verbal confirmation number. A full-color brochure with a Reservation Contract form will be mailed to you after the phone reservation and following an online reservation. An "initial" non-refundable deposit of $100-$500 (dependent upon accommodation(s) reserved), payable with your Visa or M/C Credit Card will "hold" your reservation. Credit card is debited upon receipt for a non-refundable advance deposit.

The balance of the 50% Deposit via personal, business check, or bank certified cashier's check, and a signed Reservation Contract form, enclosed in the brochure mailing, is required within 7-14 days after a phone conversation to guarantee your reservation.

We reserve the right to retain the "initial" deposit and cancel your reservation if the Reservation Contract form, and balance of deposit is not received by River Point per the due date indicated.

Upon receipt of the balance of deposit check and Contract form, a Confirmation of your reservation and a Guest Folio indicating the Balance of Charges to your reservation account, and the due date will be sent to you.

Prepayment of the Balance of Charges on accommodation rental, equipment rental, and services reserved must be paid in full 45 days prior to the starting date of your reservation (multiple accommodations and multiple week rentals must be paid 60 days prior) in the form of personal, business check, or certified bank cashier's check.

Single night and short stay accommodation reservations, along with corresponding waterfront equipment reservations (boats, motors, pontoon boats, canoes, etc.), and reservations made less than 45 days prior to the arrival date are paid in full at the time of the reservation with either a Visa, or Master Card credit card. Credit cards are debited upon receipt for a non-refundable advance payment.

Please call to notify us of an arrival later than 7pm, as River Point's Office is not open 24 hours daily. Arrangements will happily be made to accommodate your evening arrival, and directions to your accommodation will be sent with your Reservation Confirmation.

In the same good faith that we guarantee your reservation, you are responsible financially for the full rental period reserved, the number of persons for which you reserved, the accommodation(s), and all reserved equipment and services.

Deposit and/or prepayment are refunded ONLY if we can, in good faith, re-rent your reservation for the same timeframe with a new reservation. A $100 processing fee per rental unit reserved will be retained. If we are unable to re-rent your reservation, you are financially responsible for the full amount of the reservation and will be billed accordingly, with payment due upon receipt (unless prepaid). There are no exceptions of any kind, including medical exceptions, air carrier delays/cancellations, or weather related cancellations.

Travel insurance is available and may protect you against circumstances that may cause you to interrupt or cancel your trip. We strongly suggest checking into traveler's insurance. Unexpected things do occur that can delay, interrupt, or cause a cancellation of your vacation due to circumstances beyond your control.
