Guest Health & Safety During COVID 19
First and foremost, the health and safety of our guests, staff and community is our number one priority. We will follow and adhere to the strict guidelines established by the Vermont Department of Health, CDC, VOSHA, ACCD and guidelines provided by the American Hotel and Lodging Association’s “Safe Stay” program. Click here for more details about our Health and Safety Guidelines including information on traveling to Vermont and quarantining (a link is also provided at the bottom of this page).
Private Cottages, The Farmhouse and Tyler Cottage
Families and couples will have their own individual cottages. Pre-established family and/or friend pods can take advantage of the Farmhouse and Tyler Cottage suites or the larger cottages. All come with a living room, kitchenette, screened porch and a minimum of two bedrooms with some up to 5 bedrooms. Most cottages have a fireplace stocked with kindling and firewood and there are woodsheds located nearby if you need to resupply. We have made modifications to our services with your health and safety in mind such as eliminating daily housekeeping and providing extra towels and linens, your own pool towels and cleaning supplies.
We are spending extra time ensuring your cottage is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized for your arrival and there will be a minimum of 24 hours between guest use. Our Housekeeping team can drop off clean towels and linens outside your cottage as needed and our Maintenance staff will be on call to remove trash and assist if there are any problems. If you plan to stay longer than one week, our Housekeepers will clean your accommodation for you at no charge (but only if you would like them to).
While most cottages do not have a washing machine and dryer, we do have a limited guest laundry service available (Tuesday pick up and Wednesday delivery) for an additional charge.
Housekeeping and Maintenance will also increase the frequency of sanitizing common public touch points throughout the day such as sports equipment, pool furniture, waterfront equipment, doorknobs, faucets, etc.
We’ll be serving three fresh, simple, and locally sourced meals that can be picked up or delivered to your cottage. Or you can make a reservation to eat on the Inn Lawn and outdoor grill area with tables spaced to accommodate social distancing. Menus will include hot and cold breakfast choices, picnic lunch baskets with options, and dinners with at least 2 choices including a vegetarian option, as well as additional items available for children. Sample menus can be provided upon request.
For those with food allergies, menus are designed to provide choice and offer gluten, dairy and nut free options. Guests with other allergies or special food preferences should bring along extra food to prepare in their accommodation, if necessary.
Cocktails, Wine/Beer, Non-Alcoholic Beverages
To-go beverage service will be available at extra charge including Vermont craft beers, wine, cocktails, sodas and juice mid-day and evenings. Delivery is available if alcoholic beverages are ordered with a meal. Appetizers will be served between 5:00 and 6:00 p.m. from the Inn Lounge Deck at no charge and you're welcome to enjoy your drinks and appetizers at the tables on the Inn Lawn (spread out for your safety).
