We are actively monitoring the developments pertaining to the Corona Virus and making updates as the requirements and restrictions change.
All guests must sign and complete a certificate of compliance upon check in, required by the state of Vermont.
We are taking every precaution with additional sanitizing and disinfecting to help to limit the infection’s spread in general and to hotel and restaurant guests. All inn guests will receive individual sanitizer for their personal use during their stay. All guest rooms will be left vacant for at least 24 hours after guests have checked out before new guests arrive. Furthermore, as the inn consists of 3 separate buildings for lodging we will strive to space reservations to ensure minimal contact with other guests.
You can also request that no housekeeping staff enter your room during your stay.
As part of Vermont's phased reopening plan, there is new travel guidance, effective April 9, 2021.
CDC recommends delaying travel until you are fully vaccinated, because travel increases your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19.
A link to the State of Vermont's websiter with up-to-date information can be found here:
- Anyone returning or traveling to Vermont must follow Vermont’s mandatory quarantine policy. Vermonters returning from an out-of-state trip must complete either a 14-day quarantine or a 7-day quarantine followed by a negative test.
- Effective February 23, 2021: If you have been vaccinated, you do not need to quarantine to travel to Vermont or return to Vermont, as long as at least 14 days have passed since you received your final vaccine dose.
- The State of Vermont has suspended all social gatherings between multiple households. While in Vermont, you may not participate in social gatherings, this includes sharing an accommodation with another household outside of your own. Travelers may not stay with a Vermont host or stay in a Vermont lodging establishment or short-term rental with another household. Even if you have completed a quarantine, or intend to quarantine with another household, you may not gather with another household in Vermont. (Individuals who live alone may gather with members of their immediate family residing in a different household).
Residents of other states must adhere to the quarantine guidelines:
- Travelers arriving to Vermont in a personal vehicle must complete either a 14-day quarantine or a 7-day quarantine followed by a negative test in their home state and enter Vermont without further quarantine restrictions.
- Travelers arriving to Vermont who have not completed a pre-arrival quarantine must complete either a 14-day quarantine or a 7-day quarantine followed by a negative test in a Vermont lodging establishment or with friends and family (travelers must stay in their quarantine location for the duration of quarantine other than to travel to and from a test site).
