Our COVID-19 Cleaning Guidelines

We are following AirBnB and the State of Vermont guidelines in cleaning Lake Rescue Chalet to prevent the spread of COVID, as provided by the CDC. AirBnB’s guidelines are outlined here.

We are also requiring an extra day between rentals to air out the house. that means there are no back-to-back rentals at Lake Rescue Chalet until the pandemic is over. This may shorten week-long stays during the summer to six days to give our cleaners time to safely clean and sanitize between rentals.
