*** Potential Guests: A Notice About Our Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic ***

Dear Guests,

The Briar Rose was closed March 24th through May 16th to honor the need for social distancing during this coronavirus pandemic. Colorado’s “Stay At Home” order expired on May 8th, replaced by a “Safer At Home” policy. We have open, with a slate of precautions in place to protect our staff and guests. We regret that these measures will not allow us to offer you our usual flowing hospitality. Social Distancing is still strongly recommended. We offer the Briar Rose as a safer lodging option: our smallness will significantly reduce potential exposure compared to hotels. To enhance staff and guest safety we will perform abundant cleaning with solutions that will kill the virus, containing 75% alcohol or other approved antimicrobials. We will limit our occupancy to 50% for the time being. We will use a no-contact check-in process (details will be emailed prior to your arrival). All guests and staff will be required to wear masks when in common areas; staff will always wear masks when interacting with guests or cooking, and will maintain fastidious hand-washing. Our breakfasts will match our usual high quality but will be served in-room. The same is true of our renowned tea and treats. We regret the loss of mealtime and teatime companionship, but safety of you and our staff are paramount. Thank you for understanding.
