Enhanced cleaning: Here’s what we are committed to doing before every stay:

  • Sanitize every high-touch surface, down to the doorknob

  • Use cleaners approved by health experts, like disinfectants with 70% alcohol or higher

  • Wash linens at a high temperature setting

  • Follow and comply with local laws, including any additional safety or cleaning guidelines

We will greet you upon your arrival to show you around the property and let you know the ins and outs of the North Star Cottage. We hope that you treat it with the same respect as you would your own home.
