Reducing our Carbon Footprint
Being environmentally conscious is very important to us. We try to use eco-friendly soaps, cleaning products, and laundry detergents. Blue bins (recyclables) and green bins (compostable waste) are provided in each guest room. When available, we use locally sourced food. Our coffee pods are recyclable. We are on municipal water here but recognize guests may not have brought a water bottle for their outings. To accommodate that, we only provide locally produced Ice River bottled spring water; their bottles are made from 100% recycled plastic.
The front door and guest bedrooms have keyless entry. The codes are given to you upon arrival and disabled upon your checkout. Non-registered persons are not allowed in the Bed & Breakfast. We will only enter your room to do housekeeping, if agreed upon, or in an emergency.
No smoking or vaping is allowed on the premises including outside.
We offer secure storage for sports equipment (bicycles, kayaks, paddleboard, skis, snowboards) in our garage. Starting in 2020, we’ll have room for motorcycles.
