We’ve missed you!
We are excited to announce a modified opening on June 19, 2020!
These guidelines are in place as of May 31, 2020 and will be updated and modified as the state makes changes to the guidance. We expect this guidance to progress in the next few weeks, allowing for less restrictions and indoor dining.
Thank you for taking the time to read the following information. It is important to us that you know what to expect when you are at East Hill Farm.
At East Hill Farm we know how important traditions are to you and we have made every effort to keep our traditions in place as we follow guidance from state and federal agencies including the CDC and governor’s office to keep us all safe.
Before you leave home:
We are looking forward to seeing you all, but if you are not feeling well or have been exposed to COVID-19, please choose to visit us at a later date. If you have risk factors including those outlined by the CDC, please use caution when choosing to travel. We want you to be safe and comfortable when you decide to travel.
Following the state guidelines for Phase 1 of lodging, guests must either be a NH resident or self-certify that all of the persons staying at the lodging facility have remained at home for at least 14 days before arriving in NH, only going out for essential items and when outside of the home maintaining social distancing and wearing face masks when within less than 6 feet of another person during this 14 day quarantine.
Please bring your own masks or face coverings as they will be required when you are in locations where you are within 6 feet of others. We look forward to seeing how creative you get with your face coverings!
What to expect when you arrive:
There is a health screening for all guests upon arrival. You will need to self-certify that all members of your party do not have any symptoms of or known exposure to COVID-19.
Because restaurant dining rooms are currently closed, your meals will be served as grab and go or outside. We will continue to provide delicious home cooked options, just in a different style.
There is someone to greet you in Grandmother’s Attic living room who will direct you to where you need to go for check in and to answer any questions. Please have only one person in your party come in for the initial check in. We have clear markings for social distancing in the office area and other public places.
The living rooms and other common areas are closed, but you can gather with your family on the lawn and porches throughout the property. Please bring your own games and puzzles as we feel it is not possible to disinfect ours between each use.
At this time, the indoor and outdoor pools, sauna and hot tubs are closed. As soon as this restriction is lifted, we will open the pools for your use.
The pond and boats are open, there are miles of trails to hike and plenty of space on the lawn to spread out and enjoy nature. The animals are out in pastures just waiting for you to visit. You will be able to collect chicken eggs, milk the cow and feed the animals.
What we are doing to promote guest and staff safety:
In guest rooms we are following CDC guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting the rooms between guests. You may notice fewer items in your room and public spaces as we are trying to limit decorative items and some decorative bedding to reduce the amount of laundry we need to do between guests. If you need more bed coverings, just ask and we will provide them for you.
All common areas are cleaned and disinfected throughout the day following CDC guidelines. Hand sanitizer is located throughout the property for guest and staff use.
Picnic tables on the lawn are spaced 6 feet apart to allow for social distancing. We ask that you wear your mask when in common areas and 6 feet of spacing is not feasible.
In the barn we also have guidance for social distancing where necessary. The barn common areas are disinfected throughout the day. We ask you to be a little more conscientious about your handwashing before and after you interact with the animals. There is a sink and hand sanitizer in the barn.
Our staff has a daily health screening and they wear masks whenever they are working within 6 feet of guests or other staff.
There are modifications and social distancing during recreation activities. Be prepared that there may be some activities that we will not be able to do this year. We are making every effort to include activities in which we can incorporate safety and social distancing.
The cookie jar!! Since we are not able to have self-serve options, we will be serving you cookies, coffee and lemonade in Grandmother’s Attic living room. Yum!
If you have a reservation during the time when we are shut down, you can transfer your full deposit to another stay within one year or you can request to have your deposit refunded. If you have a reservation for June 19 or later and are unable to come due to restraints around COVID-19, you can transfer your deposit to another time or have your deposit refunded.
Our office is open daily from 8:30am to 8:30pm and we are taking future reservations for summer and beyond. If you make a deposit on a new reservation and we are closed due to COVID-19, you can transfer the deposit to another stay or get your deposit back in full.
Wishing the best to you and your families. See you soon!
Sheri, Jimmy, Marshall, Jamie, and Jennifer
