Ask about group rates; Mon and Tues specials; and *loyalty programs: "Frequent Beacher;" "rain insurance;" and "banked nights."

A note about Minerva’s rates: We strive to achieve a fine balance: aiming to keep our rates modest, so that working families can afford their much-needed vacations; while taking pride in our commitment to meticulous housekeeping, and to hearty breakfasts comprised of healthful, high-quality ingredients—and neither of those things comes cheap! We accomplish our goals by competitive compensation to our dedicated and talented assistants, by careful budgeting, by limiting the owner’s salary to a VERY modest sum, and-- from time to time—by offering loyalty rewards  and economical theme weekends. We believe that once you have experienced Minerva’s hospitality, you will agree that we offer a good value.

* "Frequent Beacher": Accumulate 6 nights, get one night free! (this is cumulative, and does NOT have to be consecutive nights; Frequent Beacher points never expire.)  Rain insurance: If it rains for more than 4 hours on any FULL day of your stay at Minerva's, we'll give you a $40 voucher, good for your next visit to Minerva's! (Limited to one voucher per party, per visit). "Banked nights": Problem: can't meet the 3-night minimum, because you can get away for only a two-night stay? Easy solution: Pay for three nights, then stay two nights and "bank" the third night to link onto a future reservation. Never expires!)
