COVID precautions - The Pickering House Inn

The safety and well-being of our guests and employees is always our top priority, but that commitment takes on special significance in light of the global outbreak of COVID-19(coronavirus). We are committed to following the recommended procedures and protocols of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and local health authorities. This includes a commitment to the highest level of cleanliness in all public areas, guest rooms, and facilities on our property.

We are continuing to offer breakfast each morning of your stay in our Gathering Kitchen. We are setting seating arrangements in keeping with physical distancing standards and will, if necessary, stagger service times between 7:30-9:30am.

It is hard to predict how the outbreak of COVID-19 may impact your travel plans between now and your arrival date. If you would like to postpone your scheduled stay to a future date, we are happy to cancel your reservation and issue a non-refundable Gift Certificate toward a future stay. Please call our front desk at 603-569-6948 for more information.

We encourage you to follow CDC recommendations and the same personal best practices that are standard for typical flu season – frequent washing of hands; avoiding contact with eyes, nose, and mouth; and limiting exposure to other sick people. To safeguard the health of our guests and other visitors, we ask that you postpone your visit if you are ill with flu-like symptoms, or if you have recently traveled to a region that is experiencing widespread transmission of COVID-19. We are requiring all guests to sign a quarantine statement upon check-in to maintain a healthy environment for all guests and staff at Pickering House Inn.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at 603-569-6948 or email us at
