direct reservation Policy

  • A room of your choice will be reserved in your name after we have your full name, billing address, mobile and home phone numbers, email address and valid credit card information. Your reservation is not complete until we have your valid credit card information. 
  • Your direct reservations are guaranteed by your payment in full at the time of booking. Your credit card will be charged for the total amount of your reservation at the time of booking.
  • If you are not ready to prepay for your room or not sure of the dates please call us directly to set up a hold. We are a small place and do get sold out often. We would rather hold a room for you for a short time to give you a chance to plan your trip, then have you rush into booking, needing to cancel and pay the cancellation fees.
  • If you plan to use a house gift certificate or gift certificate please call us directly to book your room. There is no limit to how many gift certificates you may use for one reservation.
  • We do not share your contact information with a third party. Your contact information will be used for contacting you about your reservation, the follow up and mailing any forgotten items back to you only.
  • You may book online through our website or over the phone. Your reservation's total amount will be charged at the time of booking. When you receive our email confirmation your reservation will be complete and your room will be guaranteed or waiting for you regardless of what time you arrive to check-in. 

Cancellation Policy - IMPORTANT TO KNOW

  • Your direct reservations are guaranteed by charging the total amount of your reservation at the time of booking. See details in Direct Reservations Policy.
  • Should you need to cancel all or part of your reservation we must receive notice no less than 7 days prior to your arrival date. All canceled nights are subject to a 10% processing fee for the amount of the canceled portion.
  • All cancellations received less than 7 days prior to your arrival date will be non-refundable unless we can rebook the room. You will be responsible for payment of any nights not resold.  Note: This policy pertains to early check-outs as well. If we are able to re-book your room we will refund you accordingly minus a 10% cancellation fee.
  • Holiday reservations are subject to a fourteen (14) day cancellation policy. 
  • Multiple room reservations ( four or more rooms) are subject to a six (6) months cancellation policy. If we are able to re-book all or some of your rooms we will refund you accordingly minus a 10% cancellation fee.
  • If you do not agree to our cancellation policy you may not make a direct reservation. Please call us directly to get alternate accommodation recommendations.  

Pet Policy

  • We do not allow pets inside the Inn.  If you must travel with pets we recommend these three excellent boarding places in Topanga:  CANYON ANIMAL CARE,  TOPANGA PET RESORT  and  CANYON VIEW RANCH. Your pets can have their own vacation there. 
  • Dogs are not allowed in Topanga State Park and many other parks and beaches in the Santa Monica Mountains. Park rangers do patrol the trails and give out citations to the violators. 
  • It is not safe to leave your pets outside unattended in Topanga, especially small pets, due to the presence of coyotes, bobcats, rattlesnakes, hawks, owls and the occasional mountain lion. 

Service animal policy

Although we are not subject to the Americans with Disabilities Act, Title III, because of our limited size, we are very well versed in the law and keep a copy of the ADA at the Inn.

  • Service animals are limited, by law, to dogs and miniature horses.  We can accommodate service dogs, but not miniature horses.
  • We strongly support the legitimate use of service dogs in designated rooms that will be most safe, convenient and comfortable for you and your dog. You must let us know at the time of your reservation about your service dog, to make sure a designated room is available.  You and your animal will have the run of the common areas.  Please, do not arrive with a service dog without prior notification to us. 
  • It is against the law in California to try to represent a pet as a service animal.  See CALIFORNIA PENAL CODE SECTION 365.7  

Smoking Policy

  • Smoking is not allowed anywhere inside the buildings of the Inn. You may smoke on the upstairs deck of the Casa Blanca or the upstairs deck of the Casa Rosa, where we provide ash trays. You must be considerate when other non smoking guests are present. You must insure that your smoking device is well out before leaving the area due to brush fire danger. We are  surrounded by native chaparral.
  • NO USE of controlled substances, including medical marijuana, are allowed as designated by Federal Law.  
  • It is against the law to smoke in the outdoor public parks in Los Angeles.  
  • No smoking allowed in Topanga State Park.

Since the Topanga Canyon Inn is a privately owned bed and breakfast, not a hotel or motel, a chain or franchise, it is important to understand the Inn's policies. There are certain things that just have to be done this way, or this business wouldn't be possible. Through the years many hospitality businesses in the canyon have come and gone. Our international friends always urged us to start a bed and breakfast, as they enjoyed visiting Topanga and loved our breakfasts. Our family stepped in to fill this void.  We are open to suggestions and improvements.  Please email your thoughts to
