heated mattress pads and blankets for our winter guests, a welcome gift basket with local products such as Maine made jellies, farm fresh eggs and more.  Just because

Upon arrival you will find a couple of amazing handmade chocolate truffle confections at your bedside from our local chocolatier the Bavarian Chocolate Haus in
Bridgton Maine to welcome you – very few guests have waited until bedtime to try these amazing chocolates.

skiing, hiking, swimming or the stresses from your everyday life at home.  While we are not a “true” bed and breakfast” we come close while offering you the privacy of
your own vacation accommodations that you don’t find in a B&B.  We want your “Maine Experience” to be more than simply a place to stay.  See our reviews for what
our guests say, including a wise well traveled owl.

First and foremost we need our repeat guests and our new guests that we are only accepting direct bookings during the Covid 19 crisis.  At this time we will not be
honoring or taking any reservations that were booked through 3rd party booking sites such as Airbnb, VRBO, Expedia, Booking.com and others.  We believe now it
is important that we have direct contact with our incoming guests, at least through the fall and then we will revisit to see how things go from there.  

If you have booked through a 3rd party please request a cancellation through that 3rd party based on Covid 19 and they will fully refund you for your reservation
through certain dates.  Once this is done please contact us to confirm you would like to keep your reservation in place.

We realize many of you, like myself are filled with uncertainty along with some fear of Covid 19.  Contact me directly at 207-256-4422 or
denmarkstagestop@gmail.com so I may answer any questions you may have directly.

WHAT ARE WE DOING TO PROTECT OUR GUESTS DURING COVID-19 CRISIS?

Beyond it simply being the right thing to do it is important to protect my own health, the health of employees, safety and well-being to carry out these extreme measures
during COVID-19 and being in the unique position of having owned a quarantine facility for horses, I am grateful for that experience to help getting through the COVID-
19 crisis.  Click on above link for further information.

Also see what I do when out and about in the COVID-19 world, which is very easy for everyone to do to protect yourself - the little things no one thinks of.

Am I scared?  Of course I am but I am employing all I learned during the many years I owned and operated, and managed a quarantine facility for horses our guests
safety!!!  All staff have been trained in these necessary procedures.  Bacteria and viruses and pathogens in general behave the same way, no matter the species.

We want our guests to know during this time where concern regarding Covid 19 are first and foremost on everyone's mind that we take your safety and health as
important as we take our own.  Bottom line is that if our guests are not safe that means we are not either.  Neither myself nor my housekeeper wants to contract Covid 19
anymore than our guests do.

This is where my prior experience as an owner of a quarantine facility for horses for many years works to benefit us and our guests.  I have many years of unique
experience owning a licensed and approved quarantine facility working under the auspices of the USDA.  Honestly I never thought I would ever need to fall back on this
experience but here we are in a situation we never thought we would find ourselves in.  Although my experience is with quarantining horses, bacteria, viruses etc., work
the same in all species as far as making premises safe from pathogens.  I quarantined the show horses coming into the United States from overseas to ascertain those
horses were not bringing unexpected pathogens into the U.S. before being allowed out into the general population.

So this is what we are doing to protect everyone's safety.

We block off accommodations for 3 days after each guest.  We were doing this long before Airbnb or anyone else mentioned this was a recommended practice.  In fact, I
made this suggestion to Airbnb.  This gives the pathogen the time for it to become less viable.  

Our rates have increased to account for the days our accommodations remain unoccupied, the increased expense of quality cleaning products, the additional cleaning
supplies, etc.  You can most likely find cheaper accommodations but ask yourself how they clean and prepare premises correctly when their rates wouldn't cover the
expenses when cleaning is done thoroughly and properly.  You have to choose your battles and safety vs. cost.  As soon as this crisis is truly over I will be the first one
who lowers these rates meaning we may go back to how it was before but I don't see that as being likely anytime in the near future.

We use a 3 step cleaning procedure and only enter the premises ourselves after the 3 days have elapsed.
#1 – we use a surgical soap and water solution to clean all surfaces initially.
#2 – we then use an approved virucide to clean all surfaces.  This virucide requires it be left in place for 5-10 minutes, which is followed by wiping down the surfaces.
#3 – we go through another cleaning process using a 99.9% alcohol solution.  Note:  99.9% alcohol kills viruses after 30 seconds of contact time compared to bleach which
requires 5 minutes of contact time.
#4 – we invested in a UV sanitizing device to insure we have caught all those bugs!!

Instead of 2-3 hour window for cleaning our cleaning process now takes 6-8 hours after each and every guest.  Again I don't want to be infected with Covid anymore than
you do and I can't afford to be or I am out of business longer than I already have been.  Even prior to this our guests noted in our reviews at just how clean our
accommodations are.

BE SURE ANY
PROPERTY OWNERS YOU ARE RENTING FROM KNOWS WHAT IT MEANS TO TRULY DISINFECT THEIR RENTAL!!! Ask them how they are doing
so.
 Ask them what products they are using - then ask me the same.  I am in a unique position having owned, operated and managed a quarantine facility for many years.
While it was for horses the measures to take are the same.

Other notes on cleaning processes.
Laundered items will follow a very strict protocol of being washed in the highest temperature possible using bleach to launder.  This means our towels and sheets that
we spent considerable money for may no longer look their best after many washings in bleach, but so be it.  Please do not complain if you see bleach stains or when our
colored items become not so colorful anymore, which is a small price to pay for safety.  You can be sure they are clean.

All accommodations will be provided with ample soap and hand sanitizer.  We ask that you rely on proper washing of your hands with soap and water as much as
possible and only use the hand sanitizer when absolutely needed.  If any guests remove the hand sanitizer from the accommodations or uses it to empty into your own
container – YOU WILL BE CHARGED $100.00 FOR DOING SO!!  We need to not only protect you, but my staff and every guest that follows.  Trust me I am not being
mean, but we all know human nature in times like these (some humans anyway!)

While we do apologize for some of these inconveniences and the increased price we do hope that everyone can see the sense in what we are doing to protect everyone.  I
know some of these steps are drastic and they are meant to be so.

We have put Alexa to work for our guests so instead of touching each and every object, although they have been thoroughly cleaned and sanitized, just ask Alexa to turn
on that light or turn off the TV, etc.  Of course, you can always use the traditional was of turning things on/off but this is just an extra measure for those wishing to utilize
Alexa.  

We will not be interacting with any guests at any time unless something is vital, like something important needs repair.  We keep everything in good working order so
we hope this does not occur but we will address it, if need be.  Our guests have self check-in so there is no need to formally check-in with us – just text us that you have
arrived please.  Also, let us know when you have departed, Check-in time is now 6:00 PM and check-out is 11:00 AM.  You may of course contact me anytime via
text/phone/email and Alexa and I will respond ASAP, but I may be in area with no cell or data as it can be sporadic based upon location in Maine, but will respond.  
You do have WiFi on the property so that is not an issue here.

While we do apologize for some of these inconveniences and the increased price we do hope that everyone can see the sense in what we are doing to protect everyone.  I
know some of these steps are drastic and they are meant to be so.
