Additional Guests and Children: Guest rooms at Danskammer House accommodate a maximum of two guests per room and are not configured for rollaway beds or cots. The innkeepers will make diligent efforts to accommodate and book other rooms for all guests in your party, including children who are 12 and older. If younger children are part of a large party that has booked the entire inn, they are welcome if they are well behaved and under parental supervision.
Registration Process: Check in is between 3:00 and 7:00 p.m. We can sometimes accommodate early or late arrivals if you will kindly call us at the inn and give us advance notice so that we can make alternate arrangements. Check out is by 11:00 a.m.
Covid-19 Notice: The inn continues to require proof of coronavirus inoculations / boosters upon arrival; currently, face masks are optional, at the discretion of guests. Negative test results without proof of inoculations and boosters are not sufficient.
In the evolving public health environment, an unexpected Omicron variant could halt inn operations at any time by prior notice from the innkeepers.
For guests who have tested positive for covid before arrival or have come into contact with others who currently have the viral infection, please inform the innkeepers at least 48 hours before your anticipated arrival date. Your reservation will be cancelled, and your deposit refunded.
As precautionary measures to protect the entire inn community, breakfasts are served outdoors, whenever weather conditions allow, or at separate tables indoors, as necessary. All windows open. All second-floor rooms have separate HVAC systems. The whole house fan circulates fresh air daily into the property. The inn provides multiple porches, terraces, and gardens to enjoy the outdoor environment. The inn closes in the winter months when whole-house ventilation and outdoor breakfasts are no longer
Parking: Danskammer House has made special efforts to accommodate one car for every guest suite as part of our off-street parking plan. Guests are asked to park only briefly in front of the house to discharge or reload passengers and their luggage. Please note that we cannot accommodate oversized vehicles, but will be happy to direct travelers to a 16-space municipal parking lot at no charge just two doors away.
Smoking: Out of respect for all guests, the innkeepers do not allow smoking anywhere inside the house or on outdoor porches and patios where other guests may congregate.
Pets: Out of respect for other guests, the innkeepers do not allow pets on the property. We will be happy to provide information about and directions to an award-winning local boarding facility a few miles away.
Non-Discrimination: Danskammer House welcomes guests regardless of race, creed, ethnic background, national origin, sexual orientation, or other personal identities. The multilingual innkeepers encourage dialogue, practice discretion, and request mutual tolerance among members of the temporary community of guests and hosts. Travelers uncomfortable with such policies are encouraged to find other lodging options. The innkeepers reserve the right, at their discretion, to ask disruptive guests to vacate the premises and forfeit all payments.
Good Neighbors: Danskammer House exists within a broader social context, and the innkeepers ask our guests to respect the cultural norms of our small village. Please treat our neighborhood and neighbors with the same respect and friendliness that you would practice in your own home community.
Environment: The innkeepers take pride in keeping the property tidy, in recycling materials whenever possible, and in limiting our claims on natural resources. In that spirit, we ask our guests to be environmentally sensitive. Please inform us if you prefer to have bedroom and bathroom linens replaced every day. Otherwise, we will tidy your room daily and replace linens on every third day for guests who will be staying at Danskammer House for a longer period.
Damaged Property: The inn is a private family residence, filled with our furniture, fixtures, and belongings that we invite our guests to use and enjoy. Please take care of our belongings as you would your own. We understand that equipment may malfunction and objects may become damaged or broken. Please report any such issues immediately to the innkeepers. If problems are not reported, the innkeepers will infer that damage to or disappearance of inn property of any kind was a negligent or willful act, and they reserve the right, at their discretion, to document the loss and to bill the guest for all necessary repair or replacement expenditures through the booking payment method on record.
