Well Butter my Biscuit!

I was so excited for this spring to come. In the fall of 2019 the Quilted Moose Mountain Retreat was ready to accept guests. I spent the fall visiting quilt shops, introducing myself and handing out brochures on the retreat house as well as my business cards. Everything was looking promising. Until…..

COVID NINETEEN!

What do I do now? Do I continue to promote? Do I accept reservations? What now?

I opted to do nothing. No blog posts – as you can tell since I haven’t posted anything all spring and into the summer. I didn’t feel good about promoting for people to come when everything was shut down. Even if someone called I wasn’t sure I would accept their reservation.

That was April, then came May and June. Things started to open up and a former co-worker called to ask if she could come and bring a friend. I didn’t have anything else going on, so since she was a friend, and I had taken a quilt class from her at Bolts and More, I said sure.

A few days later I got a call from someone wanting to book a self–service retreat for six people for 5 nights. I WAS SO EXCITED! My fall promotional efforts were coming to fruition. Less than 30 minutes later I got a second call for five guests for a full-service weekend retreat. Hence the title of this blog: Well, Butter my Biscuit.

Here is my plan for providing a safe extra clean and safe environment:

  • Reservations will only be made for groups where the guests know and associate with each other.
  • Self-service retreats are encouraged as opposed to full-service to reduce exposure to the guests and myself.
  • Request incoming groups to inventory their health as individuals, and if they are experiencing any symptoms to either cancel or reschedule their reservation.
  • Further, as new guests arrive, temperatures will be taken.
  • After each retreat we are sanitizing the tables and chairs, cutting table, rulers, rotary cutters, irons and anything that could have been touched during the stay.
  • In addition, we are sanitizing all touchable surfaces such as, door knobs, light switches, remotes, etc.
