Resort Changes in the Era of Covid-19

We are making changes to provide you and your family, our staff and our own families a safer environment. Continue reading to see what we are doing to get ready for visitors this summer.


Safe-in-Place at our Place                                                                                              Most recent update: 06/18/2020

Here at Cedaroma Lodge it is our goal to offer guests a safer vacation environment so they may continue family traditions and build Northwoods memories. I can't think of a better place to socially distance than Cedaroma Lodge. Below is a list of changes we are currently implementing for this summer. This list is subject to change as we get new information.

  • Cleanliness is First!   Always. We first rid the cabins of dirt and germs, then sanitize. We have prided ourselves on our clean cabins for years and you’ve noticed and commented. Thank you! This year we have researched and discovered new products and changed some of our housekeeping jobs around to best meet the needs with efficiency.

  • Sanitizing of Dishes, Cups and Silverware: All cabins have dishwashers this summer. Washing dishes by hand is no longer good enough. 

  • Blankets and Quilts: We have purchased a second set of blankets and quilts for each bed and will be sanitizing them between guests. Please consider bringing your own pillows for this visit. 

  • Additional Time Between Guest Arrival and Departure: in order to provide a safer environment for all of our guests, the Cedaroma Team and our families, the schedule for summer weekly guests will be arrivals after 5pm on Sunday, departure by midnight Saturday.  Saturday all day is yours to enjoy the resort, but plan on leaving sometime after dinner or enjoy a final evening at the fire pit, then head home. We will use the overnight to air out the cabins before our team enters the units the next morning and the next set of guests arrive. This will have been done for your visit, and the next one after you and so on for the whole summer. Yes, we are giving full-rate weekly rentals a credit equal to half a day of your cabin rate.

  • Cancellation Policy Changes: We have adjusted our cancellation policy because 60 days out is just too far to know where we are in the evolution of the disease and if any of your family or ours has been affected. Unless you have to cancel for work/schedule reasons, let's talk around 30 days prior to your visit. You have the following choices:

    • Reschedule to a new week in 2020, no cancellation fee

    • Move  your visit to the same week in 2021, no cancellation fee

    • Cancel all together, receive your deposit back, less the $100 cancellation fee

  • Strategically Placed Sanitizer Stations: we will install covered containers with sanitizer spray and a roll of paper towels in high use areas such as the beach, volleyball court, fire pit, kayak/canoe storage rack and bicycles area. Please sanitize items before and after use. Please do not litter, there are garbage cans at the fire pit, fish cleaning house up at the big garages or in your own cabin. Remember to wash your hands frequently and to social distance from other guests as these two efforts are most effective against the virus.

  • Life Jackets: If you have your own life jackets, this would be a good year to bring those along on vacation with you. We will have a supply, but you need to request them from me as we are sanitizing them between guests. 

  • Resort Seating:  There is a sanitation center on the U shaped dock with paper towels and sanitizer and at the paddle station for the other seated docks. Please wipe your seats down after you are done on the dock.  

  • Stuff and Things Around the Resort: Paddles, Canoes, Kayaks, SUP Boards, Horseshoes, Bicycles, Fish House, Fire Pit Seating, Swim Ladders, Picnic Tables and Handrails will be sanitized on Sundays. There will be a sanitation station near this equipment. Please wipe down after each use. Wash your hands often, don't touch your face and please maintain social distancing when on the docks, at the beach or otherwise around the resort.

  • Pontoons and Fishing Boats: These will be sanitized prior to your rental and between all new rentals. You will be responsible for cleanliness for the duration of your rental period. The recommendation of the health department is that you boat with the same people you are currently isolating with. We will not be overseeing this. Be safe. 

  • YogaPaddler Classes: We will have classes this summer outside. If we have 10 or less people total, we will yoga on the beach on Tuesdays and Fridays at 10am. If we are more than 10 people we will hold our practice at the volleyball court where we are able to spread out more. We will have serveral guest instructors this year. Classes are $12 if you need a mat, $10 if you bring your own. SUP Yoga will be on Saturdays at 10am. Please RSVP for SUP Yoga, $25 per class and each class is an hour of instruction, 1/2 hour of paddling and includes the paddle board rental. Classes will start June 27th and run through August. We have room for make up sessions if we rained out. to book your space. 

  • YogaPaddler Rentals: All of our SUP, Kayaks, Canoes and Paddles will be sanitized between renters. We sanitize our life jackets between rentals also. 

Local Businesses:  As of this writing, many of our local restaurants and bars are open for inside dining, take out and a few will even deliver and many are expanding their outdoor seating. Cathy's Ice-Cream is open. St. Germain Sentry, will take orders by email, They will shop for you, call with a total and load into your car for a complete contact-free service. Trig's in Eagle River will deliver for a small fee. Ray's Landing and other bait shops are open. Vilas county currently has no restrictions as to who can and cannot be open. We all have guidelines as to how we should be open. 

We can do this! Cedaroma Lodge is large enough with a big enough beach area that we can successfully social distance and still enjoy most of the amenities separately, together. This virus is making it a challenging summer: Nobody wants to get it, nobody wants to pass it on. It is a sneaky virus.Working together we can all stay safe and healthy. 

We are really looking forward to welcoming you this summer!
