Covid-19 Policies

My Response to COVID-19

I am delighted that you are interested in staying at LeFay Cottage at Little Washington. You will have a three bedroom, two bath cottage, with a kitchen, living room and sunroom and a lovely deck with beautiful views of the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains to enjoy.

Once you have decided to stay at the cottage, I will contact you to introduce myself, and will follow up with a Welcome Letter that provides you suggestions for your stay, as well as house rules. 

 Checking in is very easy as I will send you the door code, the day of your arrival, for the keypad entry to your private entrance. 

 I have now introduced Airbnb’s enhanced cleaning protocol to clean more effectively during COVID-19 and beyond. Cleanliness has always been at the top of my mind for my guests, and  it has now become more important than ever.

Airbnb developed the cleaning protocol in partnership with Ecolab, a global leader in cleaning and hygiene technologies. They also received guidance from Dr. Vivek Murthy, the former U.S. Surgeon General, along with other experts. They asked all hosts to read an overview of the protocol and complete a short test to check our understanding of it. As a host, you can be assured that I am  committed to the cleaning protocol and have also received a special highlight on my Airbnb listing page, so when you stay at the cottage, you know I have agreed to follow an enhanced cleaning and sanitization routine following CDC guidelines.

For COVID-19 and beyond:

I follow Airbnb’s enhanced cleaning protocol, which was developed with expert guidance. Here are a few highlights:

The five-step cleaning process is the routine I follow so the cottage is clean and sanitized using the proper gear and disinfectants to help kill germs and viruses like COVID-19.

I sanitize high-touch surfaces, down to the doorknob.

I use cleaners and disinfectants approved by global health agencies, and I wear protective gear to help prevent cross-contamination.

I clean each room using extensive cleaning checklists.

I provide extra cleaning supplies, so you can clean as you stay as well as masks and hand sanitizer.

I comply with local laws, including any additional safety or cleaning guidelines.

Upon check in you will notice that I will have displayed the cleaning summary, which will be signed and dated, so you can be assured that I’ve taken extra precautions by cleaning and sanitizing frequently touched surfaces.

Additionally, there is 24 -hour window before new guest arrivals.

Please review the cancellation policies before you make a reservation. I certainly will work with you should an emergency arise. 

I would like to make you as comfortable as possible in visiting. Please do let me know if you have any special needs or concerns so I can address them before you arrive.

I look forward to making your stay Magical!
