Hospitality in a COVID-19 World

10/17/20:  We know many of you have been longing to breathe our fresh country air again, and we’re excited to welcome you back

Of course, travel has changed because of COVID-19. We are implementing increased disinfecting and cleaning measures and know that social distancing is easy on our 62 acres – take a walk in the woods, relax on our front porch swing, or roast marshmallows at our fire pit.  You can also stay small – we have only 3 guest rooms (all with private bathrooms) and there’s no other staff you’ll come in contact with. You’re staying in our home, which means the smallest of details are of the utmost importance to us.  When you are ready to escape the city or cure your cabin fever, come stay INN Tiffany’s Bed and Breakfast.  Let the peacefulness surround you while you unplug and relax in the quiet and serenity of our country setting.  We’re within driving distance of most neighboring states. Call us at 501-865-6060 or book online for the best rates and access to any specials or packages, along with our relaxed cancellation policy.

What you can expect during your stay:

Cleanliness

We have always taken the utmost care in cleanliness and will continue to do so. We are working hard to safeguard the health of our guests and ourselves. While the risk of COVID-19 persists, we will be:

  • Providing hand sanitizer in our public areas
  • Disinfecting all commonly used public surfaces frequently
  • Quarantining rooms between guest stays
  • Providing individually wrapped portions of our afternoon baked treats
  • Suspending the normal daily room refresh to minimize cross-contamination.  Instead we will replenish towels and remove trash on request
  • We’ve removed “non-washable” room items such as decorative pillows and throws

Social distancing

  • We will be serving breakfast at individual tables separated by 6’ or greater
  • We must ask you to wear a mask when in public spaces, including our breakfast area and at check in. 
  • Restaurant patrons in Arkansas must wear a face covering upon entrance and while in the restaurant until the food or drink is served
  • The state of Arkansas has now mandated face coverings in all indoor environments where people are exposed to non-household members and where social distancing of 6 feet or more cannot be assured.
  • We may restrict room allocation to avoid close contact between guests on stairs and hallways

Of course, none of us are entirely back to business as usual. Directives from government and health officials continue to change daily, as do our policies and best practices. Restaurants have been allowed to reopen with limited dine-in service, and some remain closed at the moment.  We recommend calling ahead as nearly all restaurants are taking reservations at this time.  Some shops, galleries, attractions, and state parks are yet to reopen or are open with restrictions.  While the threat of COVID-19 persists, Tiffany’s will also be taking special precautions to help protect the health and safety of our guests, ourselves and our community.

“No matter the effects of COVID-19, it cannot change human nature. It cannot unwire the passion people have to serve others and the comfort people take from being served.”  –Charlottesville29.  Some of you can’t wait to travel again.  Others are more hesitant.  Whenever you are ready, we look forward to having the privilege to serve you!
