Safety First Amenities

Updated December 20, 2021

While the number of Covid-19 cases and hospitalizations have fallen here recently (and remain low compared to most of the country due to high vaccination rates), the Omicron variant is starting to spread in the area. Public Health experts continue to recommend wearing a good quality mask inside public areas, social distancing, and getting vaccinated and a booster shot if you haven't done so already.

A Health Order requiring verification of full vaccination or a negative test to enter certain indoor and outdoor activities and establishments issued by Public Health – Seattle & King County Health Officer Dr. Jeff Duchin, going into effect on October 25, protects customers and workers through providing safer spaces, protecting our health care system, and helping prevent business closures. It applies to:

Outdoor events with 500 people or more – such as professional and collegiate sports and entertainment events

Indoor entertainment and recreational events or establishments – such as professional and collegiate sports, entertainment, performing arts, museums, theatre, live music, gyms, and conferences/conventions.

Restaurants and bars (including indoor dining) – this does not apply to outdoor dining, take-out customers, and places that aren't primarily used as a restaurant, such as grocery stores.

We are happy to be open and hosting guests. Here is what we are doing to help keep everyone healthy and safe during the COVID-19 pandemic:

-All owners and staff are fully vaccinated! For everyone's safety, we are thankful that Seattle has one of the highest rates of vaccination in the country and that about 99% of our guests tell us they have chosen to get the vaccine too.

-We are following the county mandate along with other area business. Please bring a copy or photo of your vaccine card (or proof of a negative PCR COVID-19 test within the last 72 hours) after October 25 (some bars and other venues are already requiring proof now).

-We are following updated state mandates that require that all people (both vaccinated and unvaccinated) mask up in public indoor spaces like our common areas.

-We re-arranged the furniture to allow more spacing of tables at breakfast, and are also willing to deliver your breakfast to your room or to one of the patio tables. We keep windows open during breakfast and ventilate with air purifiers throughout the inn to keep the air extra fresh and clean!

-We increased our cleaning and disinfecting of common areas, guest rooms, and commonly touched surfaces. Because of the extra cleaning, we have minimum stay requirements of 3 nights unless bookings allow for a shorter stay.

-We ask you to stay home if you are not feeling well and have implemented a more flexible cancellation policy. You may cancel up to 24 hours prior to arrival with only a $20 processing fee.

-We've increased our breakfast and in-room snack options to allow for more social distancing. Wine hour is currently on hold, but we are welcoming guests with a complimentary bottle of wine, and fresh baked cookies and snacks to enjoy in your room or outside on the patio.

-We have added a new private entrance and outdoor sitting area to our Ravenna room on the main floor, making it the ideal spot for a socially distanced getaway.

-We encourage you to enjoy the natural beauty of our outdoor garden space and beautiful Green Lake Park across the street. There are great restaurants located within walking distance. Feel free to bring back takeout or a lakeside picnic and to enjoy a variety of dining options right here in the neighborhood.
