COVID-19 Safety Measures

We pride ourselves on offering unparalleled hospitality to all our guests, and we take great pleasure in the friendships made over breakfast or wine and cheese. However, in order to preserve social distancing measures and keep everyone at the Chiltern safe, we have instituted several temporary changes to our policies:, in accordance with guidelines from the Maine CDC, the Office of the Governor, and the Maine Inn Keepers Association. 

  • The indoor pool is available for use by one room at a time upon appointment with the innkeeper.

  • Communal wine and cheese is suspended until further notice. 

  • Other common spaces of the inn, including the theater, the breakfast room, and the library loft, are closed. However, we invite guests to enjoy our expanded outdoor tables and chairs in the gardens. We are also happy to lend you a board game!

  • Stayover housekeeping is suspended, but you can always reach out to us for additional linens or to take away trash.

  • In addition to standard cleaning procedures, commonly touched surfaces are treated with disinfectant between guests.

  • While the communal breakfast room is closed, guests staying in the Chiltern Inn B&B will receive our delicious hot breakfast (or cereal breakfast if they prefer) delivered to their room in the morning. As usual, rooms in the Acadia Carriage House are self-catering.

  • We ask all guests to wear a mask upon check-in and when passing through any of the common indoor areas of the inn. While enjoying the gardens, masks should be handy in case you run into other guests or staff, but are otherwise not required.

Out-of-State Guests

Maine's population is the oldest in the nation, and our state is determined to keep our elders healthy during the pandemic. Covid-19 protections are set by the Governor of the State of Maine and are subject to revision periodically.   Check for the latest.  As of this writing, by order of the governor, visitors from most other states must quarantine for 14 days upon arrival in Maine or have tested negative for COVID-19 from a sample drawn within 72 hours of arrival. As required by the state, you will be asked to sign a Certificate of Compliance upon check-in. For details, please visit the state's Keep Maine Healthy FAQ website. If you cannot get tested, but are not experiencing any symptoms, you may quarantine at the Chiltern—that doesn't mean you have to stay in your room, only that you must avoid close contact with others. You can enjoy all of Acadia's spectacular outdoor experiences while cooking in one of our self-catering apartments or getting take-out or delivery from one of Bar Harbor's great restaurants.
