As we anticipate another stunning spring and summer season on the coast, providing a safe environment for our guests and team members’ well-being is our top priority.  You will notice changes and new protocols intended to keep everyone safe as you enjoy days filled with family and friends. 

To comply with Governor Mills, Keep Maine Healthy initiative, we ask that you review the State of Maine Required Compliance Certificate prior to your arrival. Residents of Maine, and residents of states currently exempted from testing or quarantine requirements (list available at https://www.maine.gov/covid19/) do not need to fill out the Certificate of Compliance. 

If you prefer to sign and return prior to your arrival, please email to info@innbythesea.com.

State of Maine Required Compliance Certificate 

While we do plan to offer the same warm hospitality, we will simplify and reduce guest and staff interactions:

We are committed to the highest standards of personalized service, safety and cleanliness and are following the excellent advice and recommended protocols set by national, state and regional agencies (including CDC, American Hotel & Lodging Association, National Restaurant Association, International SPA Association, Hospitality Maine and the State of Maine). Each operating department has its own set of customized procedures designed to keep guests and team members safe. We hope this will put you at ease to enjoy a quintessential summer in Maine.


We are proud to have been awarded AAA's "Best of" Housekeeping in 2020 and remain committed to outstanding housekeeping services and standards met through our brand requirements at Preferred Resorts, along with AAA.

Three tiers of housekeeping services will be offered to each guest:

  • Housekeeping Arrival: Each guestroom will be carefully inspected and overstocked with various par items to ensure a safe and seamless arrival experience. 
  • Housekeeping Limited Service: Upon request, our team will access your room to provide service and restock linens and amenities. Guests requesting limited service should coordinate with Guest Services in advance. It is required that the room be vacant when staff enter/exit.
  • Housekeeping Drop-Off: Fresh linens and towels along with any other requested amenities will be packaged and placed at your door upon request. 

The frequency of cleaning and sanitizing has been increased in all public spaces with an emphasis on frequent contact surfaces. In addition, the frequency of air filter replacement and HVAC system cleaning has been increased and fresh air exchange will be maximized.


If you have any questions, please reach out to a member of our guest services team.
