Covid-19 Information

lighthouseinn covid guidelines

The past several months have been unlike anything we’ve experienced before but we remain hopeful that together, we will emerge victoriously. Please take some time to review some of the changes we have made in an effort to keep you and the Lighthouse team safe during this unprecedented time.  

The state of Maine has implemented travel & lodging restrictions to maintain a safe environment for its residents and traveling guests.

Update travel policies established last summer. 

  • Effective March 5: Travel from Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island are exempted from Maine’s test or quarantine requirement, joining Vermont and New Hampshire. People who have either had COVID-19 in the previous 90 days, or are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, regardless of state of origin, are now exempted from Maine’s test or quarantine requirement. Federal requirements related to international travel, however, remain in effect. 
  • Effective May 1: Shift Maine’s COVID-19 travel policy to automatically exempt all states, unless otherwise determined by the Maine CDC. If one or more states see a spike in cases of highly contagious COVID-19 variants, Maine will apply its test or quarantine requirement to travelers to and from that state.


**We are required by the state to obtain written verification of the following. For all Maine, Vermont, and New Hampshire residents, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island, a verification of your residency is required upon booking or at the check-in time.

People who are not residents of Maine will be asked to sign a “Certificate of Compliance” if they seek lodging in Maine.  This certificate indicates either that they have received a recent negative COVID-19 test result, that they will quarantine in Maine for 10 days (or the full duration of their stay if fewer than 10 days), or that they have already completed their quarantine in Maine, or that they are exempt due to being fully vaccinated or having had COVID-19.
