NEW HAPPENINGS & CHANGES AT THE RED HORSE INN…

–We do ask that a mask be worn and that you sanitize your hands before entering the front desk area. Just across from the front door on the railing will be hand sanitizer, wipes, a key drop and a small trash container.
–The front desk will, both fortunately and unfortuanely be sheidled for everyones safetly. The hardest part of all, no handshakes, no hugs!
–Please and Thank You, we ask that only one guest at a time be in the Front Desk Area. When that guests leaves, we will sanitize the counters and door knobs and then step right in!
–We will give yu your receipt, ask you to sign in, sanitize your key, offer you 2 sanitizing wipes for entry into your room (althoughit woul dhave already been done) and away you go to a Sweet, Simple, Relaxing stay!
–There will be no housekeeping services througout your stay in order to keep up all safe and comfortable. Any requsts, just give us a ring.
-COMPLIMENTARY BREAKFAST IN NO LONGER AVAILABLE due to the restrictions on all buffets and self service food scenarios.
–We use to leave things such as extra pillows and blanket in your room, you use to have access to coffee/tea pot setups, wine glasses, cork screws…These items will now be available by request only. However, to keep all happenings at the Red Horse Inn as contactless and comfortable as possible, we will email you a request form 4 days prior to your arrival with a list of all items you may request for your room. This way, your room will be set up your way, prior to your arrival. We would much appreciate your emailing us back the form asap.
-We will no longer be selling Island Queen Ferry tickets or beach parking passes. When you purchas your Ferry ticket they will have you schedule your return trip. Parking at the beaches is being held to 50% occupancy.
–The Barn, our guests favorite, is a huge dilema at the moment as it is very difficult for “social distancing” and proper cleaning protocal when we are not always aware if someone is actuall using the barn. We are still inthe creative thinking on this one however The Barn will be closed until our creativity can solve the problems.
–The Courtyard is all yours, of course, with social distancing. We will keep a container of sanitizing wipes on each table as well as a trash recepticle.
AROUND TOWN HAPPENINGS & CHANGES:
-NO MATTER WHERE YOU GO AROUND TOWN: Restaurants, Shops, Retail, Ice Cream, Grocery Store, Beach, Walking Trails, Ferry, Running, Walking, Biking...PLEASE REMEMBER that it will be a whole new experiene! In order to make this a sweet experience, you must come with your sweet attitude. You will be asked to wear masks pretty much anywhere you go. You many not get and outside seating table at your favorite restaurant, you may have a long wait, you may not be able to just cruise right into that retail or ice cream shop, you may not get on the Ferry time that you wanted, you may not get a parking space at the beach, it’s just the way it is in this new time of everyone going above and beyond to respect eachothers safety. There will be those that will comply and be 100% supportive and understanding with all the new policies, restrictions and wait time. Then there are those who will ruin thier stay by not being prepared for what’s to come or plain just figthting it all the way. Everyone is so ready for a sweet getaway and with a bit of Patience, Understanding and Compliance, it will be just that, a sweet stay in Falmouth!
–The beaches are open with 50% occupancy on parking and social distancing expected.
–Restaurants are now permitted to open outside dining in addition to their exisitng to go and delivery services. All outside seating tables must be spaced 6 feet apart. Masks will be necessary on your way in and on your way out. Please, Please, Please be kind, patient and understanding when heading out to dinner. Not all restaurants have ample area for outside seating so you may get a table and you may not.
–We will not have any brochures available for you, as with slow but sure openings, many businessess are just not sure of of hours and policies and are plannng day by day. So Google it will be!
