Best practices at Habberstad House to prevent the spread of Covid-19
Our plan for keeping our guests safe
To ensure your health and safety during your stay here at the Habberstad House, you may notice we made many changes in our normal routines. Our goal is to still provide you with the best possible experience while here.
While at the Habberstad House:
Please follow the CDC guidelines for handwashing and sanitizing. Bottles of hand sanitizer are located in in various areas throughout the property. Please use it as necessary.
Wear a mask if you are not fully vaccinated or want to take extra precautions. Guests who are fully vaccinated are not required to wear a mask.
Please follow proper social distancing guidelines when here however.
The public areas in the house are open. You are also welcome to enjoy the front porch and any of the sitting areas on the grounds.
Your keys will be available in your room door. The front door has a key pad and you will be provided an access code at checkin.
Self checkout is available. Just make sure to leave your key, preferably in your room or the room door lock.
Enhanced Safety Procedures:
We are using safety and cleaning protocols as outlined by the CDC and the Minnesota Department of Health
Our staff will only work if healthy.
One of the biggest changes is we will not enter your room during the duration of your stay. We will exchange and replenish items in your room as-needed while maintaining physical distancing. If you need anything, please ask.
There are paper towels and disinfectant wipes available to you in your room.
We are serving breakfast in the dining room. Breakfast is served at 8:30 a.m. We are so happy to have our breakfast table open again.
As an alternative to those who desire or who are not fully vaccinated, we can serve breakfast in the room. Breakfast will be delivered either in a basket or on a tray between 8:30 and 9 a.m. All food is covered in plastic wrap.
If the weather cooperates, you may sit outside for breakfast also.
Keurigs are available for coffee and hot water dispensing in several of our rooms with extra water in pitchers. Alternatively, a pot of coffee or hot water for tea will be provided to you as arranged for breakfast.
We only want you to come if you are healthy and have not been exposed to the coronavirus. We have relaxed our 8-day cancellation policy for 2021 due to the coronavirus, and will return your deposit less a $35 cancellation fee.
The safety and comfort of our guests is a high priority for us, as well as the safety of our staff. We appreciate you booking a stay with us and look forward to welcoming you here.
