In light of recent public health concerns about Coronavirus (COVID-19), we would like you to know that at Handkerchief Shoals Inn, guest health, safety and comfort is our first priority, as reflected in our protocol for exceptional cleanliness of our rooms.We take great pride in our clean and well-run business supported by outstanding customer service in a hospitality setting designed for your enjoyment of individual space, comfort and privacy.
To respect your space and enable social distancing, we offer a new streamlined procedure that facilitates your check-in without the need to visit our office, as well as ample parking that allows you direct access to your own private room with private bath. For your convenience, all of our rooms have a mini refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker.
Our handy Comfort Zone is stocked with a variety of snacks and beverages. It will have limited access and require a face mask. Our complimentary coffee bar, ice machine and grill use will depend on the local health requirements. Our seasonal swimming pool is serviced, treated and inspected by certified professionals.
Along with social distancing, maintaining a clean environment is one of the most important preventive measures against transmission: frequently touched surfaces are cleaned and sanitized between reservations with products based on CDC guidance and manufacturers' suggested uses for those products.
All our linen is cleaned and pressed by a commercial laundry service based on CDC guidelines for clean and sanitized laundry.
We are supplied, staffed and trained for deep cleaning, and our checks are rigorous. In turn, we request that guests collaborate in this mutual effort by respecting the check-in and check-out times so that these procedures are not rushed.
Rest assured that at the heart of our family-owned business is a sense of responsibility for our community and country, and a commitment to the well being of our visitors and staff, and to your healthful and safe enjoyment of the National Seashore.
We look forward to welcoming you and your families this season to Handkerchief Shoals on beautiful Cape Cod, with all the leisure and recreational opportunities of its villages and beaches, where the fresh salt air and forest paths of the National Seashore await you.
