Safety First, Well-Being Always at the Jackson House Inn

A Four Diamond / Select Registry Property

At the Jackson House Inn we are utilizing various practices to keep COVID numbers down and guests and staff safe. We clean and sanitize our rooms between guests and wipe down surfaces in our public areas on a regular basis throughout the day. Our public rooms are set up to encourage social distancing while allowing for interaction at a safe distance. We offer two breakfast seatings on the weekends to assure proper spacing among our guests in our dining room, which is generously sized to allow for this while still ensuring the comfort of our guests.

In accord with current guidelines from the State of Vermont and the CDC, we ask that guests “self-manage” with masks and social distancing practices, but we do not require guests or staff to wear masks in public areas. We do not require proof of vaccinations for our guests. Social distancing and good hand-washing practices are encouraged. Hand sanitizer is provided throughout the property.

Once on property, if you feel ill we ask that you notify the staff immediately and stay away from public areas. We ask guests and prospective guests to stay home if you are currently experiencing symptoms, have tested positive within the past five days (or within ten days if still experiencing symptoms), or if someone with whom you have interacted within the last five days (such as a family member) has tested positive.

We maintain contact information on all our overnight guests to facilitate contact tracing should this be necessary.

Vermont COVID guidelines tend to be a moving target over the past two years, and travel websites including Expedia and Booking.com may not always be up to date with the relevant current strategies and protocols. We apologize for any confusion this may cause. The Inn’s Innkeepers are up to date, and a call to the Inn for current details may always be a good choice.

Should you test positive for COVID immediately prior to your visit with us, we will refund a deposit or work with you to change the date of your booking without penalty, so long as you are able to provide documentation of a positive test result BEFORE arriving on property. Unfortunately, once you have checked into the property, we are unable to provide a full or partial refund.
