FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
WHAT IS CHECK IN LIKE?
We’ve developed a seamless, contact-limited check-in process. Our front desk features a plexiglass screen, and we ensure key sanitation upon arrival. Transactions are carried out on a touchpad, and moisturizing hand sanitizer is available all over the property.
All of our employees are wearing masks while at work, and our housekeeping staff have increased cleaning efforts in all common spaces. Our staff are also screened for Covid-19 symptoms and temperatures checked prior to every shift. Once you’re checked in, you will have full access to the open areas of the property. You’re welcome to use our outdoor dining areas for items purchased from the cafe, or enjoy them in your room.
WHAT IS THE VIBE LIKE ON PROPERTY?
The open-format property offers ample space to kick back and relax. We are encouraging guests to order from our cafe and find a seat anywhere on property. We anticipate busy weekends and quieter weekdays, but there should be plenty of distanced spaces to safely occupy. Just because we’re separated, doesn’t mean we’re alone! Many guests enjoy the fact that they can interact from a distance in our shared open spaces.
WHAT’S THE PLAN?
We are closely monitoring the situation with respect to COVID-19 and constantly evolving our practices on property to keep people safe. As phases change, and Washington State guidelines relax – we have decided to operate a limited food and beverage program that aims to offer the widest set of options for our guests, while maintaining safe preparation and serving practices for our staff.
As a family-owned business, we’re trying our best to be as flexible as possible, and utilize our limited resources to create a safe and comfortable environment for our guests. We truly appreciate your patience & support during this time, and are currently using the following safety measures to ensure responsible operation:
- Hand sanitizer is available throughout the property.
- Frequently touched surfaces are thoroughly sanitized throughout the day
- Room key sanitization upon check-in
- Generously-spaced outdoor seating for dining and relaxing
- Exclusive use of the Schoolhouse & Cabins for hotel guests only.
We always welcome suggestions and feedback on our safety measures, so don’t hesitate to reach out if you’ve got any questions or input!
For everyone’s protection and in compliance with the government mandate face coverings are required in all public indoor spaces. Face coverings are required in all outside public spaces only if unable to maintain six feet social distance. Our front desk team will provide you with a mask if you don’t have one.
