The COVID-19 crisis has changed virtually every aspect of our daily lives in 2020, including how we vacation and relax. Wild Yough Glamping owners Dan and Beth take great pride in opening the Glamping Site each season, doing a deep clean and adding new personal touches and features for our guests to enjoy. Unfortunately, we have been unable to return to the US due to international travel restrictions.
However, we are very fortunate to have a great partnership with Offlake Rentals and Realty (OLR). As soon as Maryland gave the go-ahead for rental properties to begin operating again, Offlake Rentals got the site ready and open for your enjoyment.
They have also implemented procedures to fully comply with Maryland regulations concerning rental properties in a COVID-19 world. These include, but are not limited to:
- Renters still bring their own bed linens and towels, which ensures single use and sterilization. Additionally, every renter now receives professionally cleaned linens to encase the blankets provided by Wild Yough. This ensures a comfortable stay with our cozy blankets along with assurance of a sterile sleeping environment. We apologize that you don’t get to see the colorful, custom blankets when entering the hut. Many of these were made by Beth and we are anxious to get back to a custom, colorful feel once COVID-19 is no longer an issue.
- Each guest still self-cleans their hut upon departure. But now, in addition to spot checking in between rentals, the OLR team disinfects all surfaces in the hut and on the furniture.
- Each hut is provided with approved gel disinfectant for their own use. Guests are welcome to take this disinfectant with them as a gift from OLR.
- Disinfectant is also provided at the bath house. Additionally, the OLR team will disinfect the entire bath house once per week, generally prior to the weekend rental period.
Should you be traveling with an individual with a high risk of COVID-19 complications, please contact OLR. It may be possible to block the hut for an additional 2 days at no cost so that there is sufficient vacant time prior to your arrival. This may not be possible on all dates, but we will do our best to accommodate your request.
Beth and Dan hope to be able to travel to America over the summer and bring you some of those personal touches and new features. In the meantime, please enjoy your stay with us in the beautiful and spacious mountains of Western Maryland!
