We are following both the CDC guidelines, local and state public health guidelines and the information coming out daily from the governor regarding current infection rates and projections. Our primary focus is to insure that we can provide the same high quality personalized hospitality in the safest environment possible. Here are some things we are implementing for guest safety:

  1. 2 night minimum stays with 48 hours between overnights so that each room can be thoroughly sanitized. On a limited case basis we may accommodate a one night booking at an upcharge. Please contact us directly via phone or email to inquire about rates.
  2. Masks must be worn in public areas where guests cannot maintain a 6 foot distance to other guests. NO EXCEPTIONS.
