Stay Small, Stay Safe, Stay Inn

We understand that travel plays an important role in our lives and that COVID-19 has affected how we make travel decisions. This challenge requires all of us to shift how we do business and live or our day-to-day lives.

The Chadwick Bed & Breakfast has always been committed to the safety and well-being of our guests and staff. We also know that you can’t relax unless you feel safe. As Maine and the City of Portland begin to reopen, we want to make sure you feel excited about all that we have to offer. Since we’re a small property, that means less guests, hence the phrase Stay Small, Stay Safe, Stay Inn!

Currently we can host Maine, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, and Vermont residents without any quarantine or testing requirements.

We can also host Other State Residents that agree to sign a Certificate of Compliance attesting that all visitors in the party have or plan to complete a 14-day quarantine before or during your stay in Maine ~or~ that all visitors in the party have tested negative for COVID-19 within 72 hours of arrival in Maine. We do not need to collect proof of test results at this time.

Below are some of the the new protocols that we have put in place, to help put your mind at ease.
