UPDATE COVID-19

We are committed to following the recommendations by the CDC, our state and local community. We are excited to share that we will be opening June 1st for Maine residents.  We look forward to welcoming out of state visitors beginning July 1st!

We are committed to following the recommendations made by the CDC, our state, and our local community during this challenging time.  We are also committed to the wellbeing of our guests, staff, and our resort community. Because of this, we are adopting a few changes in our daily check-in and guest room routines to give you extra peace of mind.

Check In / Check Out

Our new check-in procedure allows for you to check-in without having face to face contact with our Innkeeper.  There will be an envelope with your last name on it in the “Self Check-in Mailbox” located just to the right of our Front Door. Check-in begins at 3 pm. We WILL NOT be entering your room if you stay longer than one night, but will leave any amenities that you might need at your door. Guests are requested to check out by 10:00am. Please leave your completed and signed check-in papers along with your roomkey in your guest room.  If you wish to have a later departure time, please contact us the day before to ensure your room is available.
