It will soon be Summer 2021 ... and we are quickly approaching a place of comfort, confidence and a downward trend in ‘numbers’for me to re-open in August.

Living through these last fifteen months, navigating challenges, making difficult choices, feeling frustration and not living our privileged ‘normal' life, has certainly put things in perspective.

There will be a collective sigh of relief, and it will be a great day for everyone when we have cleared this 'hurdle' and ALL can feel safe, comfortable, and willing to re-start our daily lives in a more physically social and connecting way.

Travel, visiting family and friends will hopefully always be a present and active part of our existence.  To that 'end' when we do re-open (at least for the first little while) the following guidelines will be put in place.  These are in accordance with Public Health Guidelines, travel specialists’ recommendations, as well as my personal 'comfort zone'.

As a small B&B, this is a home 'first' and as such, I, my family, and YOU, my guests must feel comfortable and safe!  To this end, we have acquired a quality 'AIR PURIFIER' and when we welcome you back to 'Almost Home B&B' you will feel safe and well taken care of!

I do hope these changes and this necessary protocol will be acceptable to guests while still making your stay at Almost Home B&B an enjoyable experience ... even under these extremely unique circumstances.

                        Thank-you for your understanding!

2021 Season Guidelines & Covid-19 Protocol

 Some of the following guidelines have been in place since opening in 2017 and others since the Covid-19 restrictions and provincial guidelines.

I will have a maximum of only two (2) guests at a time and maximum of two (2) nights stay.

Unlike a hotel, which can be a vacation destination, and where one might expect to stay on the premise all day, B&B guests are expected to spend some of the day touring, visiting attractions or family and friends. This allows me time to tidy up, clean, sanitized, to bake and prepare foods for the next day.

Check-in will be quite simple

Pre-arrange your arrival time in email …

Text when you have arrived (door will be unlocked) I will welcome you into my home (my face mask on…as will yours) and a temperature check will be done).   

If you have a fever … you will be expected to transfer to larger accommodations offering room services.

No fever, you will then be given an introduction tour, fill-out the guest card and then e-transfer the agreed upon payment at this time please.

Choose the time and your preference for Breakfast:

 Breakfast:   Will be prepared and set out prior to the time you have chosen, therefore allowing for personal distancing.  There will be no HOT breakfasts prepared at this time…

Choose from Individual Servings of ... 

Fruit and cheese platter / muffins / fruit crumble / granola or cold cereal/ yogurt / juice (anything set out and not eaten will be discarded ... so please let me know if you have a lighter or healthy appetite).

I then retire to my living area ...

General Information:

I will always be home while guests are in the house and may be reached by the phone intercom forany questions or requests.

A temperature check will be done each morning … with the same outcome.

Special cleaning protocols: Special products have been purchased to disinfect the guests’ living area (thus adding an additional $10.00 to the final price for the room) and there will be a period of 48 hours between guests using the home.

 There will be no ‘outside’ visitors in the home.  If family or friends come to pick you up, they will be required to wait outside.  I too will have no outside visitors in the home during your stay.

Bedroom doors will always be closed and your room not entered when you are booked in. If you need any supplies (not already in the rooms) please request them and they will be set out in the common area.

Guests will have access to tea/coffee, the required condiments and coffee maker. There will also be a few dishes set out for your use if you bring in ‘take out food’.  However, use of the kitchen and refrigerator will NOT BE PERMITTED! (If you need to keep anything cool, if possible, bring your own cooler or if notified, I will have one ready with ice for you).  No EATING in the bedrooms, only at the dining table or the counter please.
