COVID-19 Update for Gorges Grant Hotel & Raspberri’s Restaurant and Juniper Hill Inn

Following a review by the Maine Department of Health and Human Services and the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Governor Janet Mills announced that the State of Maine will adopt the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (U.S. CDC) new guidance which allows fully vaccinated Americans not to wear face coverings indoors, effective May 24, 2021.

Maine will also lift the physical distancing requirement at indoor public settings where people are eating or drinking and therefore would be removing their face covering – such as indoor restaurants, bars, dining areas in camps or in congregate living facilities, and break rooms.

Consistent with the U.S. CDC’s guidelines, it is recommended that people in Maine who are not fully vaccinated wear face coverings in indoor public settings. The U.S. CDC requires people to wear masks on all planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation.

You have trusted us for nearly 30 years, we have not let you down in the past, and we will not let you down now.

Our Commitment to a Safe & Clean Experience

  • In addition to our already high standards of cleanliness, we have increased the frequency by which surfaces and public areas are disinfected, cleaned and sanitized.
  • Our team wears protective equipment and is committed to frequent hand washing, avoiding physical contact (i.e., handshakes, embraces, etc.), covering coughs and sneezes, and maintaining social distancing.
  • We have incorporated the use of hospital-grade disinfectant.
  • We have deployed hand sanitizers throughout the properties for guest and staff use.
  • We are extending the cleaning time of our guest rooms to allow for enhanced room sanitation and laundering of linen.

How Can You Help?

  • We are in this together. Your tolerance, patience and understanding of changes and compliance with new guidelines will be greatly appreciated.
  • If you or any member of your party feel sick or have a fever, please stay home and contact us regarding your reservation.
  • It is recommended that people who are not fully vaccinated wear face coverings in indoor public settings.
  • Vacate your room when it is receiving housekeeping services.
  • Face to face check out is not required.  Call us when vacating your room upon final departure to minimize traffic at our front desk.


A Different Approach, the Same Great Hospitality!

  • Check in time is being moved to any time after 3:00 pm to allow additional guest room cleaning time.
  • Requests such as room location, early check-in and late check-out will be more difficult to honor than in the past, but our commitment to do our best remains steadfast.
  • Continental breakfast will not be offered. As always, all rooms have complimentary coffee with coffee makers, and self-service coffee areas are available in our lobbies. Raspberri’s Restaurant within the Gorges Grant Hotel provides breakfast for an additional fee.
  • Complete housekeeping services are provided every day. You may request less frequent service, or service or on a request basis, as necessary.  All rooms will be checked for cleanliness, maintenance, and security every third day of occupancy, regardless of requested service.
  • We can provide contactless check out by emailing your final bill when your room is vacated.
