**Just a quick note regarding Covid-19. Being immaculately clean is nothing new to us. We continue to do so with even more focus on common touch points so you'll probably see us disinfecting railings, doorknobs, light switches, etc. more than normal. Additionally, being such a large house, we're able to accommodate social distancing when necessary. For meals and evening drinks, we'll be able to space people throughout the parlor, the dining room, the library, the screened in porch, and we're even happy to offer in-room breakfast if that makes you feel more comfortable! Lastly, out of consideration for our guests, you'll see us wearing masks while preparing/serving food and drinks, as well as when interactions prohibit us from maintaining the recommended personal distance.
