COVID-19 Response

In response to COVID-19, we have adopted additional policies and procedures to enhance the safety of our staff and guests.  Below are some of these policies and procedures.

STAFF TRAINING

We have conducted extensive staff training on preventing the spread of COVID-19 including training on daily staff screenings, social distancing, sanitization standards, hand washing and face covering.

ENHANCED COMMUNICATION

We are implementing a text message system to enable us to communicate with guests.  This will allow guests to communicate with us before, during and after their stay. Guests can simply send us a text message from their personal device instead of coming to the office or picking up a room phone.  It will also facilitate curbside check-in, check-out, take-out food ordering and any requests guests may have throughout their stay.

CURBSIDE CHECK-IN AVAILABLE

Guests who would like to check-in without physically entering the office can ask for curbside check-in. Please call or text the office just before or upon arrival.  We will coordinate payment and meet you at your car to provide room key cards.  We will provide full services without guests having to enter the office.

REDUCING ITEMS THAT ARE TOUCHED BY MULTIPLE PEOPLE

We are removing many items touched by multiple people and providing these items in digital form. We are removing in-room paper products that cannot be sanitized such as pads of paper, pens, tip envelopes and resort guides.

The beach is open with watercraft rentals available for $20/ hr.
