POLICIES

By reserving a room you agree to our policies. 

Enliven is a chemical-free and scent-free B&B that seeks to provide a healthy environment for our guests.

Enliven's most recent ERMI test showed a score of -1; the HERTSMI2 score was 0, which indicates Enliven is considered safe for those with mold illness.  

Enliven goes to extraordinary measures to provide a healthy environment for our guests. This also means guests must partner with Enliven in maintaining this healthy environment by adhering to our No Chemical, No Scent and No Mold policies.

If you wish to stay at Enliven, you and anyone accompanying you must be chemical-free, scent-free and mold-free. 

Stopping the use of commercially scented products for a short time before arrival is not enough to qualify as scent-free, as fragrance is designed to stick. For example, it can take many months for clothes to become free of commercial laundry detergents. Other examples of scents/chemicals not allowed at Enliven: 

  • Commercial laundry detergents (Tide, etc) and/or naturally scented laundry products
  • Dryer sheets of any kind
  • Essential oils
  • Smoke
  • Scented bath, body or hair products
  • Makeup with fragrance on the label
  • Deodorants that include fragrance or essential oils

The items listed above are only examples.  The list is not an exhaustive list of items that would violate Enliven's Policy of No Chemical, No Scent and No Mold. 

Our Policy of No Chemical, No Scent and No Mold is very strict and necessary to keep this environment safe for our guests. 

Management reserves the right to refuse accommodations or to terminate your accommodation, if in Management's sole and exclusive, subjective opinion, you are not chemical-free, scent free and/or mold-free.   

If you arrive in violation of the No Chemical, No Scent and No Mold Policy, as determined by Management, in Management's sole and exclusive, subjective opinion, you will not be able to stay and will lose the entire cost of your stay unless we are able to rebook your reservation. If we are able to rebook, we will refund the amount we have been able to recoup.

If you are coming from an environment that has a past, current or suspected mold problem that has not successfully undergone remediation, you must not bring any belongings from the moldy environment into Enliven. If you or your belongings have a discernible mold issue, you will not be able to stay and you will lose the entire cost of your stay unless we are able to rebook your reservation.

If, during your stay, you are determined by Management, in Management's sole and exclusive, subjective opinion, to be in violation of the No Chemical, No Scent and No Mold Policy, your stay will be terminated and you will be required to immediately vacate the premises.  If your stay is terminated for violation of the Policy, you will not receive a refund. 

If, during your stay, you violate the No Chemical, No Scent and No Mold Policy, and Enliven incurs cleaning costs in excess of the normal and usual cleaning costs associated with a guest's stay, you will be liable for the excess cleaning costs.

If litigation is required to enforce Enliven's Policies, recover the excess cleaning costs or other damages, remove a guest, obtain an injunction or specific performance of this agreement, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover its reasonable attorney's fees and court costs.  Venue for any litigation will be in King County Superior Court of Washington. 

Enliven requires an enormous amount of work to maintain its healthy state. Please respect it and report any issues immediately.      

Enliven is NOT allergen-free. There is a dog on the premises; he is not allowed in the guest areas but those with allergies will be better served elsewhere.

ABOUT THE HOUSE

Enliven is a completely smoke-free environment. No smoking of any kind is allowed.

Enliven is a quiet, contemplative environment. No children under 5, please.

Check-in is 4 p.m. Check-out is 11 a.m.
Early check-in or late check-out may be possible but only with prior notice. If late check out prevents Management from turning the room so it is viable to rent, you will be charged the room rate for that day. 

Quiet Hours are from 10 pm to 7 am.

RATES

Rates are per room, per night, single occupancy unless otherwise noted. Rates are quoted in USD; all applicable taxes and fees are included in the total billed.

PAYMENT

A non-refundable deposit of half your total stay is charged at time of booking.

The balance of your room charges are charged automatically to the credit card on file upon arrival. If you wish to make other payment arrangements please let us know on arrival. 

If you stay beyond check out without pre-approval, you will be charged the room rate for that day.

Incidentals (laundry, grocery store runs, etc.) are charged when incurred or at the end of your stay.

A minimum $250 cleaning fee will be charged to your credit card on file if there are policy violations that require cleaning above and beyond the standard deep cleaning we do between guests.

If your room is damaged in any way or policy violations prevent us from being able to rent the room for more than one day after your stay, you will be charged the daily room rate until the room is again viable to rent.

If, during your stay, you have concerns regarding mold in Enliven's environment, notify Management immediately so it can be investigated and remediated if necessary. Refunds are issued upon receipt of ERMI and/or HERTSMI2 scores that indicate a significant toxic mold issue exists. If ERMI and/or HERTSMI2 scores are in the healthy range, no refund will be issued. 

If, during your stay, you decide to shorten your stay, your room charges will not be refunded unless we are able to rebook your room. Amounts recouped from rebooking your room will be credited to the credit card on file after your original reservation period has been fulfilled.

Please contact us for clarification of any of our terms, conditions, policies, cleaning practices, etc. All work together to help keep Enliven safe and healthy for all. :)
