Covid-19 Safety – Summer 2023

With community transmission low, high rates of vaccination and natural immunity, and mild symptoms for the majority in response to current strains of the virus, this summer will see us returning to a more general and holistic approach to health and safety. As such, and in keeping with recent shifts in federal and state guidelines, we will no longer be requiring covid-19 vaccination or pre-arrival testing.

With that said, as we all move away from covid-specific protocols at school, work and elsewhere, we feel it’s important that we maintain a community ethos, and each of us continue to do our part to help keep those around us healthy and safe. 

We will keep you informed on any changes or updates.

Many of our guests have expressed that one of the greatest strengths of the TP is that we are a “community,” not a transient hotel or resort, nor a place where people are coming and going on different days. It is a place where people are deeply rooted in friendships built over the years and care for each other, and because of this will take extreme care prior to arrival, not just through the testing procedures and vaccines if applicable, but also in thinking ahead to their week here in Vermont. And in the same way our family feels responsible for all our guests, they too feel this toward their fellow guest families and will all work toward maintaining a safe environment during their week, and equally important, during the period leading up to their arrival.

Our cottages and family suites are either in small individual guesthouses or our 12-suite Inn. All are well-ventilated with plenty of windows and most have their own private porches. All but a very few suites have separate entrances, and all accommodations have direct outdoor A/C.

The children and teen programs remain a key element of a Tyler Place vacation. One of the great draws in coming to Vermont is to experience nature and the outdoors, and we intend to continue our programming with an even greater emphasis on outdoor activities and recreation.

Throughout the years The Tyler Place always has focused on outdoor adventures. The natural beauty of our 165 acre property with its individual cottages and separate family suites bordering a mile and half of undeveloped lakeshore make physical distancing possible when needed.  In addition, we have our 700- acre Proper Pond nature preserve, and we are working on adding even more swimming and play areas, as well as biking and walking trails.

Our extensive facilities, activities and equipment—including personal bikes for each family member—allow guests to spread out and enjoy an active vacation.

Boat Dock activities such as wake surfing, tubing, kayaking, sailing, paddleboarding, stand-up peddle boarding etc. will be available. Scheduling may be altered and some activities may be moved to other areas such as Edward’s Bay or Raake’s Point to allow for more physical distancing.

Another benefit of The Tyler Place is being located on the wide expanse of Lake Champlain’s Missisiquoi Bay which allows for a wide open, uncrowded area for water sports.

There will be enhanced cleaning and sanitizing throughout the resort on a daily basis.  High-touch surfaces will be cleaned frequently and all areas of the facility will be disinfected regularly using EPA approved cleaners.  In order to reduce the number of high-touch surfaces in the public areas, doors will be propped, trash cans will be foot-actuated or lid-free and hands-free soap and paper towel dispensers have been installed in the bathrooms.

Prior to check-in, your accommodation will be thoroughly cleaned using products and protocols that meet EPA guidelines and are CDC approved.  Our housekeepers will provide a housekeeping service daily. If you would rather not have this service, you’ll just need to let us know.  Extra towels and linens and trash removal can be requested through the Front Desk.
