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: 10/10/2020

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 have implemented. 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 had dishwashers installed. 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 remove and sanitize them between guests. Please consider bringing your own pillows for this visit. 

  • Contactless Checkin/Checkout: We have adjusted our checkin/out process so that you never have to stop at the office. Please head straight to your cabin, it will be open and ready for you at the time agreed to on your confirmation email. Give me a call if you would like a tour, wish to record damages or have questions. We have put our Guest Guide online so you have all the details about a Cedaroma Visit long before you arrive. Beginning with winter stays in 2020/21 we will have guests prepaid using either a direct deposit of the remaining balance into our deposit account, Venmo or by mailing a check. If it is your preference to pay in cash you can make that arrangement in advance and drop your payment in our lock box at the office door. Only the rental of a pontoon or fishing boat requires a personal interaction with a bit of training/review. This isn't to say we aren't available... We are! And we love working with you to make your stay the best ever. Just jingle with any questions you might have. 

  • 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 before 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. We are also employing additional sanitation processes that take more time. Yes, we are giving full-rate weekly rentals a credit equal to half a day of your cabin rate.

    • Partial week visits in the off-season: Your transitions will not include the guarantee of an empty night prior to your arrival but there will be a minimum of an 8 hour spread between guests. Since we are not transitioning all of the houses and cabins in one day, we are able to do the extra duties on the same day. If the extra time is an important feature to you, but you are unable to stay a full week, talk to us. Perhaps a different cabin has a schedule that will work better for your needs. 

  • 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 have installed 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 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. 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. www.YogaPaddler.com 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 fall update (October 2020) many of our local restaurants and bars have started their off-season hours. Most places that are open welcome take out and a few will even deliver. Seasonal places like Cathy's Ice-Cream have closed until next spring. St. Germain Sentry, will take orders by email, orders.stgermainsentry@gmail.com. They will shop for you, call with a total and load into your car for a completely 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 challenge: 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. 

If you have chosen home-school or distance learning for your kids this year, imagine all the great things that can be learned with an off-season trip to the Northwoods. We have good internet and would welcome families who are able to both work & learn from home. Join us hear and continue the education in our wilderness at great rates! 


We are really looking forward to welcoming you this year!
