COVID Precautions at the Marshall House Inn

In order to assure guest safety during the pandemic we have implemented the following changes:

1. Our breakfast options have been updated with safety in mind and are designed to be eaten in room. Among the available options are locally made Granolas, yogurts, fruits, juices, milk and locally roasted coffee.

2. Masks are required when inside the common areas of the Inn for your safety and ours and per our Governor’s order.  Failure to follow these guidelines will result in guests being asked to leave.

3. All rooms have their own individual mini split heating and cooling systems so there is no shared HVAC between rooms.

Thank you in advance for your continued support and understanding. We wish you and your loved ones good health and safety in these difficult times.
