ALL VISITORS - PLEASE READ
Effective Monday, March 22, 2021 the Massachusetts Travel Order will be replaced with a Travel Advisory: Travel Advisory
As of Monday, March 22, 2021 all visitors entering Massachusetts, including returning residents, are advised to quarantine for 10 days upon their arrival.
Travelers are exempt from this advisory if they have a negative COVID-19 test result that has been administered up to 72 hours prior to their arrival in Massachusetts. If not obtained before entry to Massachusetts, a test may be obtained after arrival, as long as travelers quarantine until a negative test result has been received.
Anyone who is returning to Massachusetts after an absence of fewer than 24 hours is exempt from this advisory.
Travelers who are fully vaccinated (i.e. who have received two doses of either the Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines OR who have received a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, 14 days or more ago) and who do not have symptoms are exempt from this advisory.
Check In and Check Out We have a new contact-less check in and check-out procedure. Upon arrival you will find an envelope with your name on it on the front foyer table that will have your sanitized room key and welcome letter with directions to your room. To check-out you will simply leave your key in the room. Please remember that a face mask or face covering is required in all common areas.
Breakfast Our extended continental breakfast will be served each morning to guests. We have indoor dining options in both the dining room and main common living room, plus our outdoor dining patio. We may provide two seating options; an 8:00 AM start, or 9:00 AM start time to help spread out the number of guests having breakfast. A staff member will be available to serve coffee at 7:15 AM for guests that like to grab an early cup!
Lunch or Dinner Take Out A reminder that you are always welcome to use the dining room, outdoor patio dining tables or any of the numerous picnic tables found around the Inn’s gardens to enjoy a takeout meal from our many wonderful local restaurants.
Afternoon Cookies and Coffee Our delicious cookies will be individually packaged and sealed. We will be happy to provide you with fresh hot coffee or tea, and in the Summer months we also offer either iced coffee or iced tea. Small bags of ice are available upon request.
Common Spaces To help maintain physical distancing, please enjoy our outside fire pit, our 2nd floor outside deck with 2 seating areas and our covered porches, as well as our indoor parlor, main living room, library, and tea nook.
Housekeeping We are following all cleaning and sanitizing protocols in accordance with CDC guidelines. We will not enter your room unless we receive a specific request for room service. We will check in with you each morning at breakfast to determine if you would like fresh towels or need any amenities replaced or trash removed. Please let us know if you need service at any time.
Our Staff All staff members will complete COVID-19 safety and sanitation training. Each staff person will have daily temperature checks, wear masks and gloves, and will keep their distance as best they can. Your innkeepers, Melody & Paul, are always on the premises and available if you need assistance.
