For 2021, we are going forward with the assumption that the State of Maine will allow businesses such as ours to open up on the normal timeline as in years past. We are making preparations to be ready for all of our guests. We will follow all of the guidelines provided by the State of Maine and the CDC as we are sure that there may be changes with the COVID vaccine and will adapt as the information is available.
We plan to continue with the changes that we made in 2020 with check-in and and our cleaning protocols. As a reminder, check-in will be from 3:00-6:00pm at the Lodge at the top of the hill. We ask that you call (207) 563-5717 shortly before you arrive to ensure that someone is there and ready to meet you. The cottages will be locked until the check-in process is completed. Please do not arrive before check-in time as we do not want unregistered guests on the property down at the lake before check-in.
During check-in, we are requiring the following BEFORE keys will be given to guests.
Any member of your party that chooses to not participate in check-in will be asked to leave the property. Any unregistered guests throughout your stay will be asked to leave the property. We request that you refrain from inviting extra guests, be it day or overnight guests. If you feel that you must extend invitations, please notify us as they are required to provide their own compliance form or complete one here if they are not from ME, NH or VT.
All cottages will be sanitized and locked in preparation for your arrival. We have minimized items in the cottages for sanitizing purposes. Items removed include but not limited to: pillows, blankets, quilts, puzzles, games, additional decor, books, magazines, uncommon bakeware, excess dinnerware, flatware and glassware. Please bring ALL of your bedding. We will provide a sanitized, packaged mattress pad for each bed for you to open. If you buy something to use at the cottage, please take it home with you including: food, drinks, ice, sandwich bags, storage containers, dishes, paper towels, toilet paper, tissues, etc. If you are looking for something that you normally have and need, please let us know. We will do our best to retrieve it in a timely manner for you.
In closing, we certainly understand that 2020 has been a trying year. We are looking forward to 2021 as we are sure that you are too. Per our normal process, we will be reaching out to each of you soon to answer any questions and to confirm your reservation for 2021.
Our goal is to have everyone feel safe and be safe so that you may enjoy Lakehurst for years to come.
