Novel Coronavirus: Temporary Inn & Restaurant Closing (Updated July 20, 2020)

Our Inn, restaurant & online food shipping site continue to stay temporarily closed. We have actually taken this opportunity to make improvements in our restaurant space and guest rooms.

Listed below are the most current State mandates. We sincerely feel this does not represent our hospitality industry. We would love to see you in the future when guidelines include all and not divided by state lines.

Updated July 20, Mandates For Anyone Entering Maine

Maine will exempt residents from the following states: New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, New York and New Jersey from the testing and 14-day quarantine requirement. Reasoning because, when adjusted for population, the prevalence of active cases of COVID-19 in these states is similar.

People who are not residents of these states and are visiting Maine will be asked to sign a Certificate of Compliance indicating either that they have received a negative COVID-19 test result, that they will quarantine in Maine for 14 days, or that they have already completed their quarantine in Maine. This compliance form must be provided to check-in at all Maine lodging establishments. Visitors may be asked to furnish proof of the negative test result upon request.

State mandates face coverings in hotels and restaurants in York County. This means if a customer is not wearing a mask or face shield they can be denied service.

Maine CDC recommends that Mainers cancel or postpone all travel.
