Added Measures for COVID-19 Outbreak

Our staff is entering and cleaning the home with gloves and masks on at all times. We are cleaning with medical-grade disinfectants and following CDC guidelines. To give you some peace of mind while you are staying in Colton Hideaway. Our regular cleaning is a deep clean every time; we also replace all linens, bedspreads, blankets, towels, mats, and small rugs. Now, since the COVID 19 outbreak, we are also going behind our cleaning team, disinfecting every touchable surface with alcohol as well as spraying the couch and large rugs with Odoban. It is an environmentally friendly hospital-grade disinfectant that has a slight lavender smell. We hope this can give you some peace of mind during your stay. If you have any other questions about our cleaning practices, do not hesitate to ask.
