Enhanced Housekeeping Measures

  • All of our employees have their temperature taken before they start their shift.  They wear gloves, masks, and continually wash their hands.
  • Employees do not work together but in separated areas of the inn.  Social distancing is monitored closely.
  • No housekeepers enter any guest’s room until after they have checked out.  Daily service is by guest request only.
  • All rooms are sanitized by Ultra Violet Lamps and deep cleaned before arrival.
  • Whenever possible, we isolate guest rooms after check-out for a minimum 24 hour period.

COVID-19 Precautions at the Inn

  • We have installed a glass barrier at the front desk, all doors are kept locked and access is with an intercom (or guests key).
  • We have installed hand sanitizer at every exit door.  Hand soap dispensers were also installed in all employee areas.
  • Common area surfaces are wiped with sanitizer throughout the day.  All exterior seating is cleaned after each use.
  • We have separated all outside seating by more than 6 feet.  All inside dining has also been reconfigured to minimize guest contact. We can even provide a private dining room as well as breakfast trays if guests would prefer to dine in their room.
  • We have adjusted our food and beverage offerings to adhere to the new safety guidelines and stay as contactless as possible.

Safe Travel Protocols

Massachusetts now has specific travel protocols, especially for out-of-state visitors. Before you book your stay, please visit this page to understand the new restrictions and guidelines for stays in Massachusetts. Effective immediately, all visitors and returning residents entering Massachusetts must follow new travel orders. These include the mandatory completion of the Massachusetts Travel Form prior to arrival and quarantining for 14 days or producing a negative COVID-19 test result within 72 hours prior to your arrival to the state. All of our guests are required to follow these orders (except for those visiting from lower-risk states designated by the MA Department of Public Health).

Wishing you safety and good health,
Your Innkeepers, Peter & Carolyn

Due to the ongoing pandemic, we have reduced our front desk phone line hours Monday – Thursday for the winter months. Messages will be checked daily and we will get back to you in a timely manner. The inn is still open for reservations everyday of the week. We thank you for your patience and look forward to speaking with you!
