Art House Bed & Breakfast COVID-19 Policy

  • Practice social distancing (6 feet) from those not in your party.

  • Respect those who choose to wear a face covering


Well, this is where we're at right now... After a hiatus to try and figure out how a home can be shared safely, I feel like I've got it mostly figured out. I would very much appreciate (and need) your help to make sure the doors can stay open!


The Dining Room & Breakfast:

The new presence of my full-time job outside of the B&B means that I will have to duck out of breakfast early, however I will have things laid out for you by 7:30am. Due to some changes in the MN Dept. of Health guidance on food serving, I won't be able to provide as large of a breakfast for you, but will still wow you with delicious baked goods, homemade granola, yogurt, berries and fruit, and whatever else I find myself drawn to that morning.


There will be a coffee maker in the Dining Room full of coffee and also a Breville espresso machine available for lattes or cappuccinos until I have to take off for work. As usual, an extensive collection of teas will be available along with an electric kettle for use at any time of the day!


There will be a guest fridge located in the Dining Room too. The purpose of all of this is to minimize traffic in the kitchen to stay in line with Dept. of Health. Feel free to have a conversation with Jay on this for more detail!


Other Shared Spaces:

As before, you are welcome to relax in the living room, on the deck, or around a campfire in the backyard-- Deck heaters and a fire ring have been added to make the deck a more attractive option for hanging out!


Cleaning Precautions:

In addition to our standard of cleanliness, all rooms will be aired out and sanitized between guests. High-contact areas such as the banister, light switches and door knobs will be sanitized daily using quaternary ammonium.


In order to allow for more time between guests, please check out by 10 a.m. and check in after 4 p.m. Before checking out we ask that you open the windows and turn on the ceiling fan.
