Health and Wellbeing Update

To assure the safety and wellness of our guests and staff, we have implemented the following procedures until further notice. Our friendly Inn staff is always reachable by phone or email!
  • All accommodations will be cleaned and disinfected between guests, and will not be occupied for three days prior to any reservation date. High-touch surfaces will be frequently sanitized.
  • At no point will unrelated guests occupy the same facility.
  • Check-in directions are emailed in advance. No in-person contact will be made with Inn staff before, during, or after your stay.
  • Full-service breakfast has been suspended; your kitchen will be stocked with a continental breakfast before arrival. Disposable dishes and utensils will be available in the kitchen along with real dishes.
  • Housekeeping for multi-night stays has been suspended. We are happy to provide extra linens upon request.

We thank you for your understanding and support during this difficult time, and we hope you’ll visit our beautiful Inn and city soon!
