The highest priority for the staff and management at Lang House is the safety of our staff and our guests. If you’ve been to Lang House Chicago before, you know that the home is beautiful, spacious, elegant, and always cleaned to the highest standards. If you are considering visiting for the first time, you are in for a treat.
In the last two months, we have been preparing the house for the arrival of our guests, including training our staff and cleaning crews to the CDC guidelines surrounding the prevention of the spread of COVID-19. We continue to use USEPA approved disinfectants and have revised our protocols to give extra attention to high-touch areas as recommended.
We will also be imposing a minimum 24-hour period between guests so that the home may be thoroughly disinfected between guests, as per the new industry protocol. We have also reduced the capacity of the home to 10 people (reduced from 16) in keeping with safe distancing practices. The house has a code entry system for complete no-contact check-in and check-out; the code is changed between guests for safety.
While most of these practices are not new for us, we have taken the time in the last two months to do the one thing that we believe SO strongly in – we have been taking care of each other during this pandemic. While working at home, we have been checking on each other, learning about WebEx and ZOOM, learning how to conduct virtual tours, and learning about what this all means for our industry and our home.
We have felt that if we can take care of ourselves and our team, we will be practicing and preparing for taking care of YOU, our future guests. All of our efforts now are in preparation for your arrival.
This week the City of Chicago will implement the next phase of the Protecting Chicago re-opening plan (The State of Illinois entered into Phase 3 of its Restore Illinois reopening plan last week). And we are happy to report, we are ready.
Lang House Chicago can offer you a home away from home, at a time when cabin fever has been especially intense for us all. Lang House Chicago can be your safe refuge and your vacation getaway, with multiple rooms for spacious relaxing including a large living room, dining room, and reading room. For some much-needed self-care, you can enjoy our sauna next to the game room or enjoy a rocking chair on the front porch overlooking the spring flowers. The home also features two large outdoor decks for spreading out and enjoying the Michigan lake breezes, just a block away.
We hope to see you at Lang House Chicago – your home away from home.
