Temple/Lodge Reopening Safety Measures


  1. A campus wide mask mandate is in effect immediately. What does this mean? In all enclosed spaces, you will have to wear a mask that properly covers your mouth and nose at all times. The kirtan singer, Bhagavatam speaker and pujaris (priests) will all have to wear masks as well! 

  2. We will be purchasing a large pandal or outdoor tent that will be erected on the island—space between the car parks which will host any large programs, festivals and prasadam—when the weather does not allow for outdoor eating. This will ensure that the temple room does not get overcrowded. 

  3. Guests at the Palace Lodge are expected to show their vaccination certificate upon picking up their keys or showing a negative COVID test result within the last 72 hours—otherwise they will be asked to book a hotel in town and visit the temple during the day. 

  4. All unvaccinated staff members and residents are expected to COVID test every two weeks and present their results to the INV Human Resources Dept. Failure to do so will result in the person being asked to not visit the temple until such measures are followed.

Important Safety Announcement

  • As the entire world faces an unprecedented public health emergency, we want to be open about the challenges we are facing and the contingency measures we’re putting in place to serve you, our pilgrims and friends of Krishna, and our residential devotees at this critical time. We are regularly working with and looking to trusted partners, including public health authorities, spiritual organizations, and governments to inform our approach. Based on safety guidelines, we have instituted the following checkout requirements. Unfortunately, we will have to charge a cleaning fee if these requirements are not upheld. In our efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19, we also need to operationally change how we clean rooms to keep our residential devotee staff and you safe.

  • All Palace Lodge guests are asked to do the following before they checkout:

  • Strip the sheets and pillowcases from whatever beds you have used, fold the comforters neatly and leave them on the beds with the pillows stacked, put all used sheets, pillowcases, and towels in a pile, tied in one sheet, on the floor—from all rooms if staying in a cabin, and combine the garbage from the room and the bathroom into one bag, tie it closed, and leave it near the laundry pile. Badly soiled towels need to be dispensed with in the garbage. Dishes need to be washed and left on the drying rack and all furniture moved back to its original position. All items need to be removed from the fridge. 

  • The Palace Lodge is 100% smoke-free, drug-free, meat/egg/fish-free and pet-free facility. Any violation of this rule will result in fine of minimum $100.

  • Late check-out policy: for each hour being late there is $10 additional charge.​

  • Return the key to the Welcome Center. Please ensure that all keys are returned to the Welcome Center. For each key not returned $25 fee will be applied to your credit card.

  • Maximum persons allowed in a single queen is 2 adults, in a double queen is 4 adults, in the Apartment Suite and in cabins is 6. Anyone found over the limit will be charged $25 per person, per night.

  • Turn off all lights and AC and lock the door when checking out. 

  • Occupants are expected to keep the rented facilities clean and to leave them in good order, with the kitchen cleaned upon check out. If a room, a cabin or the apartment suite require more cleaning than usual, an additional cleaning fee will be applied to your credit.

  • If renting a cabin, apartment suite or using the fridge in the common kitchen in the temple or the Lodge: please empty the refrigerator and leave all dishes and cookware clean.

  • Please do not remove anything from rooms and/or cabins. Charges will apply if any items are missing.

  • Charges for damage, we will be applied to your credit card and an itemized list of charges will be sent to you. 

  • Please do not use towels or washcloths as floor rags. Charges will apply if linen is damaged.

  • Our facility is located in a rural area and it is likely to see wild life (deer, racoons, and bugs of varies types (spiders, ants, wasps). Although we strive to keep all rooms clean, Palace Lodge will not give refunds due to spiders and bugs in rooms and cabins. We also do not accept responsibility for injury caused by said wild life.

  • Guests should remember to respect other visitors by keeping the noise level to a minimum.
