Out of State Owners for Spring and Summer

Updated May 12, 2021

We hope this finds you and your family well.  You’ve probably been wondering what is happening at Harbor Ridge, specifically regarding COVID-19 and its impact on your pending vacation.  Please know yours and our safety and well-being are of the utmost importance to us.  As this virus continues around the country and our world, we are following State Executive Orders, Maine CDC Guidelines, and federal CDC recommendations to help prevent the spread of the virus.

Please review the Keep Maine Healthy plan, which aims to protect the health of Maine people and visitors while allowing the opportunity for people to visit Maine and support Maine small businesses.  All non-exempted guests to any Maine commercial lodging establishment, campground, seasonal rental, or short-term rental are required to complete a Certificate of Compliance prior to their stay.  Harbor Ridge guests must present this completed form at check-in.  Maine has mandated wearing a cloth face covering (PDF) in indoor and some outdoor public settings.  As COVID-19 is ever changing in our nation, please understand that at any moment, the travel restrictions may change multiple times throughout the upcoming months.  Keep informed by viewing the Keep Maine Healthy website. 

Beginning May 1, 2021, Maine’s COVID-19 travel policy will automatically exempt all states, unless otherwise determined by the Maine CDC. If one or more states experiences a spike in cases of highly contagious COVID-19 variants, the Maine CDC will apply its test or quarantine requirements to travelers to and from that state.

We ask that you let us know whether or not you will be arriving!  We have been preparing for your arrival, as we follow the recommendations of the CDC and the government.  It has been an overwhelming year, and we ask for your patience.

As you arrive, we ask that one member of your family enter to check-in at the Clubhouse.  You will receive your welcome packet, and it will provide your unit number, internet access, restaurant information, and emergency numbers.

The Clubhouse amenities are now available by a reservation system for one family at a time for 45 minutes starting at the top of the hour.  Staff will be available by calling the Front Desk from your townhouse or by coming to the Front Desk.  The outside amenities may be used at your own risk.

We have amped up our sanitizing of your unit, and all used linens (including sheets, spreads, blankets, pillow protectors, mattress pads, towels, and shower curtains) will be completely replaced each week.  The diaries have been removed, and the unit book can be view on our website.

Unfortunately, it is recommended that we not host our welcome breakfast, our wine and cheese social hour, and our S’mores activity.  You are welcome to use the fire pit at your leisure within our posted guidelines.

What is Harbor Ridge offering its out-of-state owners who are still uncomfortable travelling due to risks of COVID19?   We have been depositing off peak winter weeks with Interval International, which would allow owners to take a vacation within Interval’s system sometime within the next two years. (Interval memberships must be valid through March 2023.)  Another option is that owners could take two owner getaway weekends next winter at Harbor Ridge depending on availability.  Some owners have their weeks in the rental pool.  We are trying our very best to work within our limitations and the restrictions on our inventory.  Please keep in mind that we have been rescheduling owners since mid-March 2020, and it is a very daunting task.  We are not a hotel…we are an already booked resort of owners!!!

If you have friends or family, you may allow them to use your week.  You just need to call us with their name, address, phone number, and email address.  Advance notice is required.

To discuss alternative options, you may call Margaret and Annette to speak with them directly daily 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.  If we do not immediately answer, leave a message, and we’ll  call you back.

Please understand that at any moment, the travel restrictions may continue to change.  Keep informed by viewing the Keep Maine Healthy website.  

Thank you for your continued understanding.   Wash your hands, practice physical distancing, and stay healthy!!!   We love our owners, and we appreciate your cooperation and patience during these crazy times!  We are all in this together!  We look forward to having you safely enjoy your vacation.
