Current Covid Operating Information

UPDATED DECEMBER 19, 2020

Uniquely located between the Lakes Region and the White Mountains, our 1,300 acre resort property offers a truly spacious environment for exploring, playing and being together with family and friends in a beautiful setting.

Despite some of the current restrictions and necessary changes, we know family vacations at Purity Spring Resort are a tradition for many who return year after year to enjoy the surrounding forests, pristine lake and welcoming community. Our goal with necessary changes is to still provide you access to Purity Lake, King Pine Ski Area and the surrounding property that you have previously enjoyed, while prioritizing health and safety for all.

 

YOUR RESPONSIBILITY

If you answer "yes" to any of these questions, please do not not put our staff and other guests at risk and we ask that you come back another day.

Do you have any of the following symptoms of COVID-19:

  • Fever (a documented temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher) or are feeling feverish;
  • Respiratory symptoms such as a runny nose, nasal congestion, sore throat, cough, or shortness of breath;
  • General body symptoms such as muscle aches, chills, and severe fatigue;
  • Gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea; or
  • Changes in your sense of taste or smell?
  • Have you been in close contact with someone who is suspected or confirmed to have had COVID-19 in the past 14 days? (Note: healthcare workers caring for COVID-19 patients while wearing appropriate personal protective equipment are not considered to have a close contact exposure).
  • Have you traveled on non-essential travel in the past 14 days outside of New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, or Rhode Island (this includes any international travel or travel by cruise ship and any domestic travel, within the US, outside of NH, VT, RI, CT, MA or ME regardless of the mode of transportation)?

 

YOUR ADDITIONAL RESPONSIBILITIES INCLUDE:

Per current order of the State of New Hampshire, all persons over the age of 5 within the State of New Hampshire shall wear a mask or cloth face covering over their noses and mouths any time they are in public spaces, indoors or outdoors, where they are unable to or do not consistently maintain a physical distance of at least six feet from persons outside their own households.

New Hampshire residents will be asked to provide their NH ID/Driver's license. Out-of-state guests will need to sign electronically an affidavit stating their party has self-quarantined (other than essential activities) for 14 days prior to arriving and all guests will be asked questions regarding if they are experiencing any symptoms.  

Current events reflect changes we have had to make and we know that they also factor into your travel plans. We want you to feel assured that your visit is one you will enjoy. For now, we continue to be flexible with our cancellation period, and we will work with you as any needs arise for keeping, postponing, or cancelling reservations. Please let us help you with making a reservation and providing information prior to your arrival. If your plans do change, keep in mind that deposits can be applied to an opening later in our current season, or refunded.

As part of the effort to maintain safety, we are implementing new ways of checking in with the effort for that to be low touch and minimal contact. We will be sending out registration cards and required documentation to sign electronically via email.

We are committed to and preparing to engage in recommended health monitoring and mitigation standards for you, our employees, vendors, and all who visit our property.  Expect to see additional reminders posted about our shared responsibilities, including the need to maintain 6-foot social distancing, and, when that is not possible, it is recommended you wear face masks or coverings.

 

FOOD AND BEVERAGE

Though our Traditions Restaurant & Pub remains closed, we hope that you’ll find your specific rental unit may provide the necessary means to meet your cooking and food preparation needs. For condo-style accommodations that are “self-catering”, including Brookside, Island View and Mountainside, these units include a full kitchen with all the essential appliances and dishware. Please note, you will have to bring all necessary food, drinks, coffee/filters, condiments, seasoning, cooking oils and any provisions that you should need for cooking.

We also offer Lakeside, Hillside and Fireside cottages and King Pine for guests to enjoy. Though these rooms do not have kitchens, they do have the usual hotel appliances including a microwave, coffee maker and small refrigerator. We will also be providing outdoor grills (seasonal use only) and some basic cookware/dishware including small pots, pans, dishes, flatware, etc. at these units for guests to use. As mentioned before however, you will be having to provide all your own provisions.

Groups that may be staying in The Inn have access to a commercial-grade full kitchen, pub and dining room common areas.

It is also our hope that our guests may discover new dining options in our region of New Hampshire and the links below provide a number of restaurants and dining establishments in relative close proximity to Purity Spring Resort along with contact information. There are also a number of breweries, distillery and even a meadery that you may enjoy visiting while you are here.

Local Dining Guide 

Local Breweries

Ice:

An ice dispensing unit is currently located in The Mill and can be accessed between 8 a.m-4 p.m. until December 17 or 8 a.m.-6 p.m. December 18 and thereafter. Clean ice containers are provided in your room.

 

HOUSEKEEPING

As has always been our goal, our housekeeping team will be working very hard implementing effective and innovative ways to provide clean accommodations upon your arrival. However, daily housekeeping will not be available as this minimizes unnecessary contact during your stay. We are able to arrange for delivering new towels during your stay, as well as trash pickup. In addition to the usual extensive cleaning between stays, we are introducing a new 24-hour extended period between reservations which provides additional time for accommodations to decontaminate.

Guest Accommodations:

  • Limiting the number of staff who are in any accommodation during service

  • Rooms will be supplied (clean sheets and/or towels, etc.) prior to arrival.

  • Staff will wear face coverings and gloves when cleaning all accommodations and public spaces.

  • All mattresses and pillows will have protective encasements that will be sanitized prior to arrival.

Common Spaces:

  • Increased cleaning frequency

  • Hand sanitizing stations

  • Availability of sanitizing solutions so that anyone can sanitize an area before and after use. We ask that you use any sanitizing equipment away from the water and dispose of any trash or used personal protective equipment in a proper waste receptacle.

 

GUEST SERVICES

Our Guest Services and Front Desk team will place a priority on creating a healthy, safe, and informative guest service experience for everyone. To decrease person to person contact, we are working to implement measures for a more “low-touch” experience. The Front Desk will be open 8am-4pm. Please call the Front Desk staff (Dial 0) when you are here.

Low-Touch Check-in Process:

  • Pre-arrival emails (or phone calls if necessary) during the week before your arrival to verify guest information related to registration cards and documentation requiring electronic signatures.

  • Keys for your use during your stay will be located in lock boxes outside your room. A personalized code for your visit will be changed again once you checkout. We suggest you keep one of the available keys in the lock box during your stay in the event you lock yourself out of your room.

Low-Touch Check-out Process:

  • The bill for your stay will be emailed to you the night before departure.

  • Our front desk staff will be available to answer billing questions by phone (8 a.m.-4 p.m.) or email.

Communications:

  • Welcome and pre-arrival information will be emailed to all guests before check-in and our website is always a good source for general information as well as current summer operating plans.

  • Any activity and other special messages will be posted on the Purity Spring Resort Facebook, Twitter or Instagram feed or via Purity Spring Resort email newsletters. You may register as many email addresses as you like at purityspring.com so everyone can receive this information.

Retail Store:

The Blue Heron Gift Shop located in The Mill is currently open to the public at this time, but you are welcome to call the Front Desk between 8 a.m.-4 p.m. to ask for available items.

Fires & Firewood:

Fires are permitted in designated fireplaces (firepits) seasonally. Do not relocate fireplaces. Per local authorities, we can not allow for any abuse of these regulations, as our fire permit is contingent on adhering to them. Fires must never be left unattended, should be kept small with flames reaching no higher than 24” above the rim and must be extinguished with water by 11:30 p.m. No fires before 7 a.m. Do not place trash, bottles or cans in fire rings and do not burn any treated or painted wood. It is illegal to transport firewood across state lines. Firewood can be ordered through the main office. It will be delivered to your unit each morning, so please plan ahead. There are approximately 6 pieces of wood per bundle, and we are selling this for $5.95 each.

Please note, though personal gas grills and camp cook stoves are allowed for use outdoors, we do not allow for use in the King Pine Base Lodge upper-parking lot that is within proximity to building propane tanks. 

Shuttle Service:

We are no longer offering resort shuttle service and ask guests to please plan accordingly.

 

RECREATION 

Purity Spring Resort is the perfect location for these times; seasonally available walking trails, tennis courts, canoes, kayaks, SUPS and beaches provide plenty of outdoor recreational opportunities while maintaining a safe distance from others. In the winter, King Pine Ski Area offers winter fun for all.

Please view, read and fully understand all of King Pine Ski Area's current COVID information.

King Pine Current COVID Info

Depending on the season, recreational and outdoor furniture equipment will be spaced out to accommodate safe and effective use as well as physical distancing. Self-serve sanitizing products are located throughout the resort and available for you to clean any equipment prior to and following use of and we ask that you be considerate of others when doing so. We also ask that you use any sanitizing equipment away from the water and dispose of any trash or used personal protective equipment in a proper waste receptacle.
