Golden Eagle Lodge and COVID-19 Safety

Lodge

  • The lounge area will remain closed to start the spring season. We hope to open it back up sometime this summer depending on how things are looking.
  • A Plexiglas barrier is installed at the check-in counter. The store remains open, but we are asking to limit the amount of people in the store area. Masks are required while in the lodge building. This is still state law.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available in the lodge and outside the lodge on the screen porch and open deck.
  • Like last summer, additional outdoor seating will be offered to accommodate guests until our lounge area re-opens.
  • An air purifier is installed in the lodge store.

Cabins

  • We have always prided ourselves on having meticulously cleaned cabins. We already meet the CDC guidelines for cleaning, but will continue to implement further levels of cleaning, disinfection, and rest-time between guests.
  • Check-out time will be 9:30AM for cabins.  To try to maximize the time between guests, we ask that everyone comply with this out of due respect and concern for the next party occupying the cabin.
  • Please contact us with any specific concerns about cleaning procedures, and we will be happy to answer your questions and work with you if you have a specific concern.

Grounds/Activities

  • Our Nature Center will be re-opened this summer season.  Masks are required while inside.
  • We will be offering an alternative to our usual nature program. If you are familiar with the National Park’s Junior Ranger program, you will find this to be quite similar! We welcome all youths to participate in the Golden Eagle Lodge Junior Forester Program! Each year will have a unique theme – no two years will be the same! Upon completion, get your own waterproof Golden Eagle Lodge 2021 Junior Forester Sticker.
  • Our youth fishing contest is still on this summer! Same rules as usual – bring us your fish’s measurement and the winner at the end of the week gets a prize!
  • Our paddleboat will be back on the beach this summer. This is free to use for any of our guests. Life jackets are required per state law aboard all watercraft. If you need lifejackets, please ask!

Employees

  • All employees are required to wear masks while guests are in the store and check-in area. A Plexiglass barrier is also present at the front desk.
  • We will do our best to offer the highest level of hospitality and customer service to each and every guest. That being said, we will be requiring our employees to maintain appropriate social distancing while providing services and interacting with guests. Some employees may choose to wear masks during all outdoor interactions as well – look for their smiling eyes!

Guests

  • Masks are required while inside the lodge store.
  • Our livelihood depends on each of you, our guests. We appreciate your continued support and loyalty through all of this. We are here because of you, and we appreciate your understanding as we try to keep everyone safe and healthy.
  • Please contact us if you have any specific concerns. We will be happy to try to work with you to make you feel confident and comfortable with your upcoming stay.

With Gratitude,
