Covid-19 Safety



We have implemented COVID-19 related protocols to help protect your safety and that of our family.  Fortunately, Heartful Retreats B&B is configured to give our guests plenty of space to enact social distancing, with guest rooms spread far apart and the home large enough to allow guests to spread out while enjoying their stay. So here’s what to expect during your stay with us.   

Sponge and Bucket
Clean Bed

DEEP sanitizing

Before your arrival, we deep clean each bedroom and guest bathroom, wiping all surfaces down with a disinfecting bleach solution. Beds are made daily with clean, sanitized bedding and linens. Bath towels & other linens are washed, dried and sanitized between each use on a high heat cycle. Mattresses and pillows are outfitted with clean, waterproof protective covers, cleaned and sanitized weekly. Bathroom use is limited to assigned guests only.     


common areas

We deep clean common areas every 3rd day, and wipe down  all surfaces with a disinfecting bleach solution daily. Furniture, tables, cabinets, and door handles are cleaned and wiped down with a white vinegar and antibacterial soap solution. We vacuum hardwood, tile, and carpeted flooring daily, and mop/wash all flooring weekly. A bleach solution bottle is provided guests on arrival to facilitate cleaning of  surroundings to their personal comfort level, if desired.

Masks are mandatorily required in all indoor and outdoor spaces where five or more people gather, by WA. State Health ordinance. A 6 foot minimum space is required between guests, and we do not allow shoes indoors, nor pets for any reason, due to increased allergy and other health concerns. Masks are not required in private spaces (i.e. rooms), and may be temporarily removed while eating & drinking, where folks are appropriately spaced out. 

Meal Prep


We keep all kitchen surfaces clean and disinfected between food prep events, and wash hands, utensils and food judiciously when preparing breakfast. Dishes and glassware are run through a Dishwasher commercial sanitizing cycle each time, and used only once. We limit guest service to only those kitchen and dining areas that allow appropriate distancing between guests. Both on-site kitchens are deep cleaned daily, with trash and recyclables removed at that time..
