Cleaning procedures

The Beach House at Lake Street has always gone above and beyond to keep our accommodations feeling fresh, clean, and sanitized. During COVID-19, we are especially attentive to the CDC guidelines and following all recommendations. This involves using the highest classification of disinfectant to clean all units and ensuring that all frequently used surfaces (such as TV remotes, light switches, door knobs, keyless entry pads, chairs, faucets, and knobs on appliances) are cleaned. Our team will be working vigorously to make certain your vacation is one full of relaxation and comfort in the safety of our facilities.
