COVID-19:

Our property has four rooms with direct entrance from outside, and each is deep cleaned and sanitized. We are working to maintain a schedule of multiple sanitation cleanings daily to ensure a safe and comfortable environment for our guests. We have hand sanitizer located throughout the property, and we have added hand sanitizer to each room for personal guest use. We have disposable masks available upon request. Face covering is required. Common areas are available for use by guests with a face mask. Social distancing rules apply in these areas (library, living room, dining room and deck). Guests may remove face-covering while seated at tables. Breakfast can be enjoyed outside on our deck, in our dining room, or the privacy of your room. We understand if you prefer to limit team members entering your room. We are offering options for Housekeeping; see Housekeeping policies at the end of our policies.

  • Noise Ordinances: The Crystal River Lullaby B&B is a peaceful property with all guests residing close to each other. Therefore, we request guests to be considerate of others staying with us when opening and closing doors and conversing in the public areas during sleeping hours. In order to ensure peace and quiet for all guests, common areas (sitting room, dining rooms, foyers, veranda, and surrounding lawn) are available for use from 7:30 am-10:30 pm unless a group event is planned for those areas.
  • Common spaces: Common areas close at 10:30pm. We apologize, but keeping with the Citrus County Safety and Health laws, the kitchen is not available for guest use. For your convenience, each room has its own refrigerator to use during your stay.

ADA Accessibility and Service Dogs:

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), originally effective January 26,1992, was created to ensure the equal treatment of those with disabilities in all aspects of life. For B&B owners, this is of particular importance as we strive to provide the best possible experience for our guests – including those with disabilities. We provide ramps for guests in wheelchairs and acceptable sign for those with limited vision to accommodation for the use of service animals that are required due to a disability. Please let the innkeeper know when booking your reservation if a service dog will be accompanying you.  Service animals are permitted in all areas where guests are allowed. Service animals are animals that are trained to perform a specific task for the benefit of a person with a disability. The staff may ask what task(s) the service animal performs. The following types of animals are not permitted: Comfort Animals – Animals not trained to perform a specific task, but they are said to provide emotional support or to relieve anxiety simply by their presence. Pets – Animals for which no claim of any service is made.

You must keep your service animal under control at all times. The animal should always be on a leash, harness, or other tethers, unless either the handler is unable because of his/her disability to use a harness, leash or other tethers, or the use of a harness, leash or other tethers would interfere with the service animal’s safe, effective performance of work or tasks, in which case the service animal must be otherwise under the handler’s control.

The property may require you to remove your service animal if: the animal is out of control and you do not take effective action to control it (for example, a dog causes a significant disturbance by barking repeatedly and uncontrollably or is not housebroken) or the animal poses a direct threat to the health or safety of others. If you are asked to remove your service animal, but you would like to remain on the premises and/or continue staying at the inn without the animal, you must make arrangements for another person or local animal boarding facility to accept custody of your animal. The staff members are not responsible for the care or supervision of any guest’s service animal.

Crystal River Lullaby Housekeeping:

We want to provide you the highest level of service and attention, but we understand if you prefer to limit team members entering your room. To accommodate your personal preferences, we are offering options for Housekeeping services:

  • Daily Service: this is the standard service for those guests who prefer daily make up and turn-down service.
  • Limited Service: Our team will access your room once daily to provide make up service and restock your pantry.
  • Daily Drop Service: We understand some of you may not want to share your space with others once you arrive, so we will stock your room appropriately for the entire stay. Upon arrival, we will discuss options for additional requests and linen exchanges.

Crystal River Lullaby General Info:

  • Gratuities for housekeeping staff are left to your discretion.
  • Gift certificates are available.
  • Afternoon refreshments and treats served from 3:00 to 6:00 pm.
