Over the past few months, life has changed rapidly and, now, most, if not all of us have adopted heightened health, safety and precautions at every turn. Cliff House is open this season to offer some respite during a transitionary period as we begin to get comfortable with a new normal and appreciate some of life’s amazing wonders.
In preparation for our re-open we invested above and beyond safety protocol provided by the American Hotel & Lodging Association, National Restaurant Association, and International Spa Association regarding to ensure a safe environment for every guest and staff member this season. Other guidelines have been driven by CDC and the state.
As the season progresses, services will be modified to honor all the work of the past months' precautions and the measures for the general health and welfare of our community. During our initial opening, one can enjoy a Cliff House experience to better suit what is needed at this time in respect to where we are today. We are committed to remain vigilant to ensure the security of your travel safety and health.
As you all know, Cliff House offers one of the most incredible views on the east coast and emulates the environment of a national park high above Bald Head Cliff on 70 acres of scenic coastal Maine. Fresh ocean air, nature trails, scenic overlooks, picnics, and outdoor adventure awaits you this season. What you should expect? Respite, solstice, and the great outdoors; all within the social distancing guidelines. We have enhanced our air quality with air purifiers in our guestrooms which contain HEPA filters which captures bacteria; UV lights in our public space air conditioning units which kill bacteria; glass and shield counters to provide safe space to communicate with our staff; indoor and outdoor dining options, touchless technology, and a progressive opening in The Spa. You can expect a clean certified room prior to arrival with approved techniques and certified cleaning products; only guest accessible in your private quarters throughout your stay, yet touchless technology for amenities and tailored to guest services. The intent is to limit access to guestrooms to provide a sense of peace and privacy during this time period. As time progresses, services will evolve. LEARN MORE
