Welcome to Grand Avenue

At Grand Avenue we’ve always taken cleaning and disinfecting very seriously. We clean all surfaces with sanitizing cleaners, run bleach water through the Jacuzzi tubs, wash all towels and linens, and wipe down common surfaces such as door knobs, stair rails, TV remotes, etc.

The COVID-19 news has led to advisories about avoiding large group gatherings. As a small inn we are by nature not a place for larger groups. While nothing aside from completely avoiding all humans would be completely safe, we hope that our small operation represents a great alternative to larger hotels and restaurants.

If, for any reason, you wish to alter or cancel a reservation there will be no fees charged. We want our guests to be safe and happy. Further, if you are not feeling well or believe you may have been exposed to a virus, please respect the safety of all and take a break from travel.

Grand Avenue is open and happy to serve. We’ll great you with a smile and work hard to assure your comfort and safety.
