Temporary COVID-19 Related Policies and Practices

COVID-19 Related Cancellation Policy

If you have an existing reservation and need to cancel due to the effects of COVID-19 travel restrictions or concerns, we’d be happy to give you a full credit for a future stay or you may convert your deposit to a gift certificate.  If circumstances don’t allow for either of these options, we’ll gladly give you a full refund.

State of Emergency

The Governor has extended Maine’s state of civil emergency through May 30, 2020.  As of June 1, 2020, Coveside will be open to in-state residents of Maine only through the end of June and possibly through July (this is currently under review by the Governor’s office).  This information is up to date as of May 5, 2020. 

Keeping you safe – Health & Safety Practices

Life may be filled with uncertainties right now, but do know when you’re ready to travel again, Coveside will be ready for you!  We’re busy planning how we’ll deliver the safest, most comfortable and relaxing travel experience for your Summer and Fall get away.  Coveside guests already appreciate our relative remoteness and the peaceful solitude of staying with us on Georgetown island.  Close enough to the more bustling tourist communities in Mid-Coast Maine, yet just far enough removed to offer guests a totally relaxing and safe vacation experience.

Getting away to Maine’s fresh air – and Coveside’s upscale accommodations — will be a welcome respite from these challenging times.

Here’s what we’re already implementing to keep all guests safe and healthy:

Food Service

  • The dining room has been reconfigured to three well separated tables with seating for two at each table.
  • Breakfast times will be staggered to ensure a maximum of 6 guests at breakfast at any given time.
  • Optionally, we would be happy to deliver breakfast to your room.
  • For the near future, all breakfasts will be served with disposable, compostable single use place settings.

Guest Rooms, Check-in and Check-out

  • Guests may take advantage of remote check-in. Let us know when you’ll arrive and your room will be ready for you without the need to interact with Coveside staff.
  • Remote check-out is also available. We will charge the balance of your stay to the credit card on file on the morning of your departure, eliminating the need to interact with staff.
  • Once you’ve checked into your room staff will not enter your room until after your departure, unless we are specifically asked to service your room.
  • Hand sanitizer/sanitizing wipes will be available in each guest room.
  • All rooms are fully cleaned and sanitized between guests.

Additional Cleaning/Sanitizing

  • Public/common areas will be cleaned/sanitized throughout the day with particular attention to surfaces and high touch items like doorknobs, light switches, etc.
  • Hand sanitizer/sanitizing wipes will be available throughout the common areas.
