Temporary Policies: Covid-19 Safety Etiquette

We know many of you will be cautious about getting away when so much is still tenuous and unknown. We understand! 

  • All rooms and surfaces will be thoroughly cleaned after each stay.
  • A Stone’s Throw B&B has a spacious yard with a table in the garden quad, a Pergola & porch to relax, enjoy your wine or enjoy your meal.
  • Many Wineries, Breweries, Distilleries and Restaurants are currently open for pick-up & where possible – outdoor dining. Limited capacity for outdoor wine, beer, spirit tastings are now available.

We look forward to your visit!  As part of our preparation for your stay we have temporarily modified some of our policies listed here, due to COVID-19. We are taking every reasonable precaution per the CDC Federal guidelines that have been issued. We take seriously the safety and comfort of us all.

Our COVID-19 policies will be a part of your reservation confirmation acceptance. If you have any questions about our policies, including COVID-19, please let us know.

Masks are required upon arriving at A Stone’s Throw Bed & Breakfast and continued to be worn when interacting with other guests or ourselves, IF social distancing is not possible. We will be prepared to wear masks when interacting with you for our mutual protection and we expect the same courtesy in return. We will have masks available if needed.

In an Upcoming Stay email, we will ask you to  answer 3 questions about your health – have you tested positive for COVID-19, displayed symptoms, or have been in contact with someone who has been exposed within the last 14 days. If you answer yes, please cancel your reservation or reschedule for a later date.  We are setting these protocols to keep us all safe, to provide a log for the Health Dept. and the community that you will be visiting.

Upon arrival – every guest will be screened upon check-in using a touchless thermometer – Any guest with a fever at or above 100.4 degrees will not be permitted to enter the B & B at that time – we apologize for any inconvenience

Your room has been prepared with the utmost level of care. In addition, please know that we are spacing reservations with a 24-hour interval between stays to allow significant time for thorough cleaning and disinfecting of all touchable surfaces within the room, as well as a 2 night minimum. We will be cleaning and disinfecting high touch areas in our common areas throughout the day and hand sanitizer will be available throughout the common areas and in your room as well.

 For your comfort you may want to bring your own bed pillows. However we will have bed pillows cleaned and disinfected. Each pillow will be covered with both a pillow cover and pillow case.

We will not be offering refresh service of rooms for your safety and ours. However, any fresh towels and/or amenities will be available to you upon request.

We will serve breakfast on our porch, weather permitting, or in our dining room and/or kitchen; each area has individual tables to maintain social distancing. However, we will be asking our guests to space their breakfasts with at least a 15 min interval during the 9am breakfast time frame. Breakfast will be served by us. Each room has a coffee/tea service available.

If at the time of your stay some restaurants are offering take out service only – You are welcome to use our dining area, porch or garden table to enjoy your dinner. Dining utensils are available for your use.  All rooms have guest refrigerators.

During your stay, we are only a phone call or text away. Please let us know if you need anything or have any questions.                      We are here for you.
