- For 2020: As a result of COVID-19 requirements and restrictions we are adjusting both our offerings and rates for stays at Affinity Guesthouse. For the balance of the 2020 season the focus will be on vacation rentals, corporate and organization retreats and business meetings, and events involving fewer than 50 participants. Weddings and family related events that meet these criteria are welcome.
- For 2021 and beyond: We are taking booking for larger events for the 2021 and 2022 season on the assumption that the number of participants and related restrictions will be increased for those seasons.
- Pets: Accommodation for pets will be determined on a case by case basis.
- Cleaning Fees: A clean-up fee is added to all bookings and will vary depending on the length of the stay and the use of the additional facilities on the site.
