We are open!


Our staff is here to do our part during the Covid – 19 pandemic. As always, we take great care in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene throughout our property. We have supplemented these normal procedures with additional COVID – 19 cleanliness-specific guidance, training and information to make our cleaning and hygiene protocols more rigorous. Please be sure to check for any travel restrictions in accordance with the State of Maine’s Covid – 19 response. In accordance with guidance from the American Hotel & Lodging Association, Hospitality Maine, CDC, and the State of Maine, we have implemented the following procedures:

~ Our staff is receiving ongoing training on enhanced operating & cleaning protocols

~ We have increased the frequency of cleaning our public areas including the lobby, door handles, public bathrooms, vending machines, and self-serve coffee stations

~ Increased cleaning and disinfecting protocols to clean rooms after guests depart and before the next guest arrives with particular attention to high touch items

~Staggered room placement as availability allows

Please be advised that to reopen safely for guests and employees we have made some changes to how we operate. These changes include requiring all staff and guests to wear masks in common areas, suspending our evening wine & cheese reception, switching to Grab & Go breakfast, and switching to a Contactless Housekeeping service for guests who stay more than one night. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation and hope to see you soon.
