Keeping You Safe
As we all cautiously start moving past this global pandemic that impacted everyone of us, we wanted to share with you, our guests, the procedures we already have and those we put in place to create an even safer environment. Our priority is your safety, and we want you to fully enjoy your stay with us at The Woodstocker B&B and in beautiful Woodstock, Vermont.
The Woodstocker B&B closed on March 16, 2020 when the governor of Vermont issued a Stay at Home Order. The governor issued specific guidelines to ensure that the state reopening happens gradually, in control and safely. We are, of course, in compliance with the guidelines of the State of Vermont as well as with those of the American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA) and we will update this page should they evolve.
The Woodstocker B&B
The Woodstocker has a total of 9 rooms which means no more than 18 to 20 guests will be staying with us at any given time.
It is worthwhile to point out that our Morgan Horse suite has its own private entrance, that our guest rooms are for the most part at a distance from each and that we have several common areas (and the garden during spring and summer) allowing our guests to comfortably spread around the B&B as they see fit.
Our ductless A/C units are stand-alone split units that do not require the sharing of ductwork as found in a central cooling system, thus eliminating the risk of pollutants circulating throughout the system.
Finally, we are only a few minutes away walking time from trail-heads where you (and friends and family, should you decide to book the entire B&B) can enjoy the reinvigorating clean Vermont fresh air.
Our Staff and Us
As an officially registered bed and breakfast, the Health Department of the state of Vermont requires us to maintain high standards of safety and cleanliness as reflected in our annual Lodging and Restaurant Licenses issued to us by the State Board of Health.
In addition, both of us are certified by ServSafe, the restaurant industry’s leading food safety program accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Conference for Food Protection (CFP).
Our experienced full-time housekeeper, Crystal, who has been with us for over a year, ensures that all common areas and each room are kept clean, sanitized and welcoming for all guests to safely enjoy. She also trains and closely oversees any additional temporary staff we may need.
Finally, we all completed the enhanced COVID-19 awareness training recently rolled out and we and our staff will be using gloves and wearing a face mask as required.
Hygiene and Cleanliness
In addition to our existing stringent cleanliness standards (as reflected in sample guest testimonials we included on this page) we offer and have implemented procedures to further protect our guests and keep them safe:
- Once cleaned to the standards that have garnered us praise from guests, our rooms will be disinfected to the latest Covid-19 standards. We have state of the art air purifiers that we use as required
- Common areas are cleaned and doorknobs, light switches, handrails etc. disinfected several times a day
- Hand sanitizers are made available throughout the B&B
- In order to maintain adequate social distancing, we are limiting access to our dining room for breakfast to a maximum of 3 tables via a time slot sign-up sheet
- We will continue offering our continental breakfast-in-bed option to guests who wish to indulge in their room in the morning
- We will make our self check-in process available to guests who wish to use it regardless of their time of arrival
and please… remember to wash your hands often while you are out and about enjoying beautiful Woodstock and Vermont!
