Wellness Efforts

With over 3,300 acres, Fort Lewis has long been a haven for escape and seclusion, and we hope our wide-open pastures, winding trails, miles of river frontage and farm-fresh food will be more comforting than ever to those of you who choose to escape to the mountains with us.

The health and safety of our guests is our top priority and our goal is to provide an environment in which you are safe and comfortable. Below are some measures guests can expect during their stay at the farm. As always, we’re happy to try to accommodate special requests, so if you have any questions or concerns, please reach out:

GENERAL PROPERTY INFORMATION

  • The property has been deep cleaned and sanitized and we are maintaining a more frequent schedule of routine cleaning and sanitizing, with an emphasis on frequently touched surfaces.
  • Hand sanitizer stations are located at all entrances and common areas.
  • Face masks will be worn by staff and we ask that guests bring their own mask. Masks are required while indoors. Disposable masks are available upon requests.
  • The health of our team and family is being carefully monitored. All staff is informed of and will follow all safety protocols recommended by the Commonwealth of Virginia.

HOUSEKEEPING

  • We want to provide you the highest level of service and attention, but we understand if you prefer to limit staff entering your room. To accommodate personal preferences, we are offering options for housekeeping services:
    • Standard Service: Our standard housekeeping service for those guests who prefer daily cleaning. Please hang the provided door tag saying, “Please Service My Room.”
    • Drop Service: For guests who wish to limit entry into their rooms, please hang the provided door tag saying, “Please Do Not Disturb.” If needed, ask staff for additional linens or room amenities, which will be left at your door.

DINING

  • If you have visited Fort Lewis before, you know that our farm-fresh meals served family-style are one of the hallmarks of a stay at the farm. For now, we will be changing our traditional buffet and instead will have guests select which dishes they want from our daily menu. Masked and gloved staff will plate your food.
  • We have placed a hand-sanitizing station at the entrance to the dining area for guests to use prior to entry.
  • Tables will be spaced at a six-foot distance from each other and ample outdoor dining space will be available on the patio.
  • Guests at the bar will be encouraged to grab their drinks and sit on the patio or in the dining room. No more than 10 guests will be inside the screened-in porch at a time.
  • Restaurant staff will be wearing masks for your safety and comfort.
  • While we are always diligent in maintaining health and sanitation codes, we will sanitize surfaces with increased regularity.

Please contact Fort Lewis Lodge & Farm if you have any questions.
All measures are subject to change based on guidance from relevant local authorities.
