Our Policies


Arizona liquor laws prohibit guests from bringing alcohol onto the premises. You may purchase beer and wine at the Lodge to enjoy in the café, on the deck, or in your room.


The Mount Lemmon Lodge is a NON-SMOKING & NON-VAPING property. For the health and safety of our guests, smoking and vaping is not permitted anywhere on the premises, and a minimum $250 cleaning fee is imposed for smoking and vaping inside the room. Additionally, we do not have designated outdoor smoking or vaping areas. Your complete cooperation is expected.

Maximum occupancy

Although we enjoy having families at our lodge, we have a maximum occupancy of four people per room. We will be happy to add another room to your reservation if you’d like to include more family members.

pet policy

Except for ADA compliant animals, we do not allow pets on the premises. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.


For reservations made directly on our website or via phone, a first-night deposit plus lodging tax is required to secure your reservation and will be charged to the Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express card provided. If booking your reservation less than 15 days before your arrival, the entire reservation amount will be charged to your credit card.

The remainder of your balance is due at check-in and can be paid by credit card or cash. Your reservation is not confirmed until your deposit has been successfully processed. An automatic confirmation will be sent by our reservation system to the email you provide.

There is a minimum 2-night stay for Friday and Saturday bookings. Holiday or special event weekends many include additional night requirements.

Children are welcome but must be accompanied by a family member and count as a guest in the room. The minimum age to book a room is 18 years of age. All guest names must be listed on the reservation for your safety in the event of an emergency. Although we love animals, we cannot accommodate pets.
