COVID-19 Updated And Overriding 1805 House Bed & Breakfast Guest Stay Policies.
As the health, safety and general well-being of our guests at the 1805 House is our top priority, we have established the following guest stay policies in accordance with best practices, guidelines and requirements set forth by the CDC, New York State and local health agencies relating to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We have instituted a strict room cleaning and disinfecting protocol to ensure a hygienically safe guest room environment. Hand sanitizer is available both in and outside guest rooms and we encourage its use along with hand washing with soap and water as often as possible. Each guest room has its own individual room-specific air conditioning and heating units to minimize inter-room air share or whole-house circulatory air movement.
Multiple separate outside entrances are available to reduce unnecessary or unwanted inter-guest contact during access and egress. Parking for each guest's vehicle is amply separated from other guest parking areas. Only authorized guests with reservations will be permitted on the premises.
We are making contactless check-in and checkout available to all guests and we will be conducting a brief advance phone or email health survey of our guests at least one day prior to check-in. We reserve the right to cancel a guest reservation with no additional fees if we determine a guest-described adverse health condition or pre or post-arrival exposure to COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2/novel coronavirus) might pose a risk during the guest's stay to the affected guest, other 1805 House guests or the 1805 House staff. We will continue to follow all guidelines set forth by federal, state and local authorities regarding travel restrictions and will allow cancellations with no additional fees outside our normal cancellation parameters should the circumstance arise from such government authorized and imposed travel restrictions.
We are also not permitting any guest access to common areas, including but not limited to, the kitchen, living room, dining room or deck. We are working hard to guarantee a minimum of twenty-four hours between guest stays and thereby assure our guests of optimal room cleanliness and hygiene.
Upon request and included in our room rate, we will provide a breakfast in a bag with compostable serving containers and utensils to be delivered to the room and customized from our menu in advance for each guest. Breakfast is prepared by only one person utilizing appropriate sanitary methods of storage, preparation and service with mask and gloves. We are also providing a dedicated private umbrella-covered table with chairs and a bench for each guest room to enjoy breakfast al fresco or outdoor time when weather permits as well as en-suite breakfast tables for indoor dining.
We also ask for and expect the cooperation of our guests to follow social distancing guidelines of at least six feet (two meters) between guests or guests and staff and the use of face masks where guest-to-guest or guest-to-staff interaction or contact on the grounds of the 1805 House property might occur. Guest stay policies may be subject to change without notice and we welcome any suggestions that might help to improve our guest's stays and general well-being.
Notwithstanding the changes necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic and the current world health environment, it is our firm commitment at the 1805 House to continue working diligently to create a happy, healthful, rejuvenating and relaxing bed & breakfast lodging experience for our cherished guests with charming, clean and comfortable rooms quietly nestled in the countryside of bucolic Columbia County where nature's invigorating beauty and fresh air abound.
