Covid, it seems, is something we're going to have to live with for a while. As the virus changes, so must our approach to managing it change. Our goal is, as it always has been, to ensure the health and safety of our guests while still offering warm hospitality, luxurious yet homey comfort, and an overall wonderful experience.
We require all guests to be vaccinated. Children not yet eligible for vaccine and adults with medical conditions that prevent safe vaccination must bring results from a PCR test performed within 72 hours of arrival.
And we've reinstated indoor masking in all common areas when anyone from outside your immediate household is present, unless you are eating or drinking.
Even as the weather grows colder, we encourage guests to spend time outdoors. Our firepits are great for gathering around safely with old and new friends. When the temperature allows, we serve breakfast out on our covered porch (space heaters under the tables make this a cozy option), and we make the most of our various common rooms and cottages for socially distanced dining as needed. We follow CDC, Vermont Department of Health, and American Hotel and Lodging Association guidelines for disinfecting and cleaning our rooms and linens. Remember, we live here at the inn, so we approach health and safety measures as if our very lives depend on them.
