Dear past and future guests –
We have partially reopened and hope to see you all soon. Please go to our “availability” to check dates and make a reservation. Please note that your innkeepers have received both vaccines already and we are very grateful for that.
What are we doing to prevent Covid-19? We have been very proactive here at Thurston House.
For bookings –
Through June, there will be a maximum of 2 rooms booked for any dates, and with a 2-night minimum. Starting July 1, 2021 we will book all 3 rooms, but still with a 2-night minimum. We will readdress this issue at the end of August.
Right now, rooms will not be cleaned until at least 24 hours after the room has been vacated. There is 1 day blocked before and after guests to guarantee that proper cleaning and disinfecting can be accomplished in that room.
Common areas –
Masks are no longer required UNLESS you have not been vaccinated. If you have not been, you must advise the innkeeper so appropriate precautions can be taken. Innkeeper-made cloth masks, disposable masks, and small hand sanitizers are available for each guest as needed. Please ask the innkeeper for them.
The Keurig is available now to guests but is monitored carefully and sanitized as needed.
There will be no regular daily 5-6pm beverage & cheese time, but it is available upon request.
Social distancing will be required “IF” a guest has not been vaccinated.
Guest rooms –
Because our guest room windows are unable to be opened, we have installed the highest efficiency level filters available in our central air system.
All unnecessary items have been removed from the guest rooms, items such as pens, paper, most decorative pillows, and extra blankets. These items can be requested from the innkeeper.
TV remotes will be covered with a plastic disposable cover, replaced for each reservation.
Rooms will be “lightly” refreshed daily. If your stay is longer than 3 nights, please advise us if you want your towels and/or linens changed.
If all guests are appropriately vaccinated, breakfast times can be the same as other guests.
Breakfast will be made by the innkeeper, as usual, and served with disposable gloves worn. No breakfast foods will be communal unless you are traveling together.
Most restaurants have reopened – some at limited capacity inside, great outdoor dining areas, delivery and takeout. Museums and all other attractions are mostly reopened.
Thank you so much and we hope to see you here soon!
