Calling all Vermonters: Please contact us for special offers for your family’s safe, local, and overdue “Staycation”!

 

Keeping you and your family safe is of utmost importance to our entire Team here at Stowe Country Homes. Exceptionally clean properties have always been our priority.

All homes are cleaned by a SCH Approved Housekeeper. All SCH Approved Housekeepers are now trained in the

Vacation Rental Housekeeping Professionals (VRHP) and Vacation Rental Management Association (VRMA) “SafeHome” certification course.

Subcontractors that are Approved Housekeepers are required to review the SCH Training Handbook, which details the VRHP/VRMA “SafeHome” guidelines. This certification

and Training Handbook encompasses and exceeds standards provided by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO)*.

Best practices include a minimum 4-day turnover between guests. For a complete list of guidelines and products used, please call our office at 800-639-1990.

*Although we are taking additional measures to clean, disinfect, and sanitize our properties, we cannot guarantee this will prevent any guest
from becoming ill during their stay. We recommend guests follow the CDC guidelines for staying safe when traveling and in public.
