    WE ARE OPEN TO MAINE RESIDENTS ON JUNE 1 OFFERING 20% OFF. CALL OR EMAIL

    COVID-19 INFO
    Maine residents as of June 1st will be able to stay at Hotels and Short Term Rentals in Maine. Non Residents will NOT be allowed in Hotels or Short Term Rentals in June. Stating July 1 if you are from out of State you will have to quarantine for 14 days once you arrive in Maine. This is a moving target and this ruling may change.
    Monhegan is welcoming you and we plan to make your stay as safe as possible at Shining Sails, in our Cottage Rentals, on the Ferry, and on the Island so you have an enjoyable stay. As we get more guidance from the State we will update you before your trip and try to answer all your questions. If you are from Maine you are welcome with no quarantine restrictions.

    MAINE RESIDENTS
    At this time there are no travel restrictions for residents of Maine. The cancellation policy has changed and is now 14 day notice.
    The State has said that residents of Maine can stay at hotels and lodgings with no quarantine. Face masks will be required on the ferry, on the dock and any place on the Island that social distancing is not possible.

    TRAVELING FROM OUT OF STATE
    At this time the 14 day quarantine for guests travelling from out of State is still in effect. This is a moving target and the Governor of Maine has indicated that they are making progress towards removing that order. When this may happen is unknown. In light of that there is NO CANCELLATION POLICY until the decision to remove the quarantine is made. We will notify you if this changes.

    MONHEGAN, SHINING SAILS, AND THE BOAT LINES ARE WORKING TOGETHER TO MAKE YOUR TRIP TO MONHEGAN AS SAFE AS POSSIBLE FROM DOCK TO DOCK TO LODGING AND ON THE ISLAND.

    WITH NO CANCELLATION POLICY AT THIS TIME WE HOPE YOU HANG IN THERE WITH YOUR RESERVATION.

    We do however have options if you feel the need to cancel.

    1. Move your reservation to August, September, or October. The quarantine period is a moving target. If you get quarantined out of your stay just pick again from the options.
    2. Move your reservation to next year. We will give you a credit voucher towards your stay for next year. You can also use it for a stay this year with Shining Sails.
    3. Give you a refund minus the 8% service charge. Unfortunately we have to pay fees. We will however offer a 5% discount for a stay next year off the listed price if you book directly with us and pay by check.

    If you have any questions feel free to contact john@shiningsails.com or call 207 596 0041.

    Stay Safe
    John and Winnie
