To Our WaterColor Inn Guests:

We understand your concern during these uncertain times.  At WaterColor Inn, the safety and well-being of our guests and of our team members, remains our top priority. 

With this in mind, and in an effort to do our part in helping prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our communities, we have made the difficult but responsible decision to close our property.

We will not be accepting reservations for the period of March 21 - April 12.

Given the fluid nature of this situation, this status is likely to change frequently. Our team will be assessing the situation on a day-by-day basis and providing updates accordingly. Please refer back to this page frequently for the most up-to-date information.


Additionally, we have adjusted our operations for the following WaterColor Inn amenities. The proactive adjustments and/or closures noted below allow us to optimize sanitation efforts, do our part in assisting with social distancing, and maintain our excellence in service.
