Iris Garden Cottages and Suites
Rental Information and Policies

Our Emergency and after hour phone numbers are posted on the door of the lodging office, which is located in our Iri Garden Art Gallery. All units are non-smoking, no pets are permitted.
If there is an issue with your unit, we ask that you notify us immediately. We can't fix yesterday, but we will do everything in our power to fix the issue and make your stay as delightful if as we can once we are made aware of an issue. Accordingly, we won’t discount your stay for issues or problems that we were not made aware of immediately.


  • Check-in time is between 3 pm and 9 pm | Early check-in may be available upon request
  • Check out time is 11 am – This time is strictly enforced to ensure that all rooms can be cleaned and ready for our next guests.
  • Check in at the office - the path around to the front of the building is on the North side of the parking lot (to your right if you are facing the building from the parking lot). The office is the first door on the left on the front of this building.
  • Please call us for help with directions or with any question you may have. We forward the business number 812.988.2422 to our cell phones when we are not on the property and after hours so that we are always available and ready to help you. We look forward to your visit.


  • Late check-in is any time after 5 pm. Please call on the day of your reservation if you will be checking in late so that we will have your unit ready for you and can give you any instructions that you may need.

  • The units will be cleaned after the third night’s stay for any guests staying in excess of three nights if requested by the guest.
  • Extra towels are supplied upon request at no extra fee.

  • Reservation holds a unit out of the market and other potential guests are turned away. These cancellation fees help lower the losses we incur from guest cancellations.

  • b) Bookings cancelled after 9 pm, 2 weeks before the day of check-in will incur a charge of the first nights stay.

  • In the event the credit card is declined, the guest agrees to mail a money order for the total due including the fee within 24 hours of their notification to:
