To our Dear Beachmere Inn Guests,
A lot has changed since my letter first out on March 6th regarding the Covid-19 pandemic. We hope that you are safe and healthy with your family and friends while we all wait this out. It’s just not the same not having you all here with us for our 83rd season and we MISS you all.
On March 3/24/2020 we made the difficult but necessary decision that we were going to close the Inn and Blue Bistro until May 1, Friday. Today, April 28, 2020, Governor Mills announced further modifications to the way businesses and residents of Maine can operate for a phased reopening plan. We, in compliance with our State’s efforts and for the protection of our team, will now have to close until May 31st. We will continue to help flatten the curve and step back from public interactions. We will keep the office open from 9am to 5pm (Monday to Sat) and 9AM – 3PM on Sunday, with one person on site and the others working remotely to assist you with questions, reservations or cancellations.
We have greatly relaxed our cancellation policies, working with each of you as to whether you wish to rebook for a later date or transfer your deposit to a different reservation later in the year or next year. Until July, we are not forfeiting deposits no matter how late you call to cancel. Should you wish a refund, we are working with each of you to determine what method works best and how to process most efficiently. Please reach out to our front desk team for more information at 800-336-3983. As we continue to work on social distancing within the work place, know that there may be times when there are only 1 or two of us in the office on the phones. If we don’t answer, please feel free to email us at [email protected] for questions, cancellations or reservations.
The health and well being of our guests and team members are of paramount importance to us. We are working at safe distances, protocols on how we will open for your safety and peace of mind while also setting up safe work practices and implementation of new guidelines on what we can and can not offer this season. As you all know this is a quickly changing landscape, but we will be ready when we are able to welcome you back to your “home away from home”.
Be well, be safe, and know that we are missing you all.
On behalf of the Beachmere team,
Sarah Diment – Owner
Elaine Akeroyd – GM
