  • All frequently high touch areas in common spaces will be cleaned with disinfectant.
  • To make your arrival and check-in as smooth and safe as possible, we ask that you respond to our “Welcome to the Inn” email, informing us of your approximate time of arrival, any dietary restrictions or other pertinent information.
