Dear past and future guests –
We are reopening October 23rd and hope to see you all soon. We have just been pressure washed, and the building is gleaming! There is a two-night minimum in place and we plan to only accept a maximum of 2 rooms at a time, unless guests are traveling together. Please go to our “availability” to check dates and make a reservation.
What are we doing to prevent Covid-19? We have been very proactive here at Thurston House getting ready to start accepting guests once again.
For bookings –
There will be a maximum of 2 rooms booked for any future dates this year, and with a 2-night minimum.
Rooms will not be cleaned until at least 48 hours after the room has been vacated. There are at least 2 days blocked in between guests to guarantee that proper cleaning and disinfecting can be accomplished in that room.
Common areas –
Masks are required in all common areas. Innkeeper-made cloth masks and disposable masks are provided for each guest.
The Keurig is not available at this time due to sanitizing issues.
There will be no daily 5-6pm beverage & cheese time, but it can be available upon request.
Social distancing will be required in all common areas.
Disposable gloves will be provided, inside and outside, for guests to use our number lock for exiting and returning.
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.
Each guest will be given small personal hand sanitizers.
All un-necessary items have been removed from the guest rooms, items such as pens, paper, guest directory, 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 not be refreshed daily.
Breakfast times will need to be spaced out so that no 2 rooms are eating at the same time.
At breakfast, hot beverages will be served individually to each table, not communal.
Breakfast will be made by the innkeeper, as usual, prepared and served with disposable gloves worn. No breakfast foods will be communal.
Most restaurants have reopened but some still at limited capacity inside, socially distanced outdoor dining, and takeout. Museums and other attractions are mostly reopened, at least partially.
Please be safe! We look forward to the reopening of everything in this area, all that you love to enjoy doing and seeing while staying here at Thurston House. If you would rather wait and come at a later date, you could purchase gift certificates or book yourself a nice future getaway perhaps later in the later fall or during the wintertime, to have something to look forward to.
Thank you so much and we hope to see you here soon!
Carole & Joe
