Updated March 31, 2020

On March 11th, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the outbreak of coronavirus, known as COVID-19, to be a global pandemic. Since then, the outbreak has evolved rapidly with governments around the world taking swift action to slow the spread of COVID-19.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are adding an "extenuating circumstances policy" specific to COVID-19 aligning it with the travel industry.

We want to help protect our community and hope to provide our valued clients peace of mind.

Ways Harrington House at Rice Point is addressing COVID-19

  • Enhancing our cleaning and disinfecting
  • Minimizing / eliminating soft surfaces where possible
  • Adding a COVID-19 extenuating circumstance policy

What reservations are covered

Reservations checking-in prior May 31, 2020

Reservations for stays made on or before March 14, 2020, with a check-in date between March 14, 2020 and May 31, 2020, are covered and may be cancelled before check-in under our extenuating circumstances policy.

All guests who cancel have the option of:

  • full refund (deposit or balance depending on what has been processed),
  • booking an alternate date prior to end of 2021, or
  • keeping a credit for future stay.

Reservations checking-in after May 31, 2020

Reservations for stays made on or before March 14, 2020, with a check-in date after May 31, 2020, are not currently covered for COVID-19 related extenuating circumstances. We are tracking the current situation and will continue to monitor and adjust accordingly. Our cancellation policy will apply as usual.

Reservations made after March 14, 2020

Reservations for stays made after March 14, 2020 will not be covered under our extenuating circumstances policy 'at this time', except where the guest or host is currently sick (at the time of stay) with COVID-19. Our cancellation policy will apply as usual.

Our extenuating circumstances policy is intended to protect our guests from unforeseen circumstances that arise after booking.


We will continue to review the application of this policy. Please monitor this page for updates and new information closer to your stay date.

COVID-19 Update May 15, 2020

A Provincial State of Emergency was declared on April 17, 2020 stating that all non-essential travel into Prince Edward Island is prohibited.  A date is not yet available for when non-residents will be permitted to enter Prince Edward Island.

We are hopeful that over the coming months that broader travel options may be possible but at this time we are only able to accept reservations from residents of PEI.
