Please be aware that Washington State has a new travel advisory effective November 13, asking persons arriving from outside the state to self-quarantine for 14 days after arrival. This recommendation is voluntary and does not apply to individuals who cross state or country borders for essential travel. In addition, restaurants in Washington State will be offering only outdoor and takeout dining until at least December 14.

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:

-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. Until Washington State restaurants are allowed to re-open for indoor dining, we are requesting that guests opt for breakfast delivery.

-We’ve increased our cleaning and disinfecting of common areas, guest rooms, and commonly touched surfaces, including allowing an extra day between all reservations.

-For your safety and ours, we are not currently entering your room for daily housekeeping. However, we will definitely be in close contact to refresh your supplies and to remove garbage and dirty linens.

-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 are encouraging minimal and no contact check in options. We live here on-site, so we are always nearby and available by text or phone if there is anything you need.

-We are wearing a mask while cooking and serving your breakfast, along with our normal frequent hand washing and wearing gloves as appropriate.

-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.

-Per state requirement, we ask that you wear a face covering when inside local businesses and when spending time inside our common spaces.

-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.

-We’re all in this together, so let’s make the best of it and stay safe!
