Our Environmental Policy

We are committed to maintaining the highest possible standard of service and comfort for our guests, while keeping our environmental impact (or carbon footprint) to a minimum.


What we are doing Every Day:

No smoking is allowed anywhere on the property.

Energy star appliances are in use wherever possible, and energy-saving compact fluorescent light bulbs are replacing incandescent bulbs.

We turn off electric amenities when not in use, and encourage our guests to do the same. This includes air conditioners, fans and lights.

Water-saving aerators are installed on every sink. Low-flow showerheads & toilets are installed throughout.

We purchase in bulk whenever possible, to help reduce excess packaging.

Refillable liquid soap dispensers in all showers eliminate use of plastic bottles. Glass carafes are used for dispensing spring water for drinking, further reducing the use of plastic bottles.

Enviromentally safe, all natural cleaning products are used for glass surfaces, toilet bowls, laundry, & dishwasher.

All natural, non-toxic, bath products including shampoo, soap & lotion are available for our guests' use.

We participate in the Clean the World recycling program, which collects and sanitizes discarded soap and distributes it through nonprofit groups to families at home and abroad.

Toilet paper, paper towels, and facial tissue all have a high post consumer content. Our office uses recycled paper products as well, and our promotional materials including programs, pamphlets, and brochures are printed on recycled paper.

Organic towels and bath mats are used in all bathrooms. As they are retired from use, bed linens will be replaced with organic ones. Old towels and sheets are given to a reuse program.

We allow guests to decide if their towels need to be changed - signaling us by placing towels they wish replaced on the bathroom floor.

A rain barrel is used to collect water for the vegetable, herb and flower gardens. We compost kitchen waste to use in gardens, along with non-toxic fertilizers.

Broken equipment is repaired and reused. Functioning equipment that is no longer needed is donated to charity.

We participate in the Falmouth waste recycling program.

Low VOC paints will be purchased for all future new construction or refurbishment.
