COVID-19 Updates

Gideon Putnam has resumed operations! Make your reservations today!

We are committed to maintaining an environment that helps keep our guests safe.

At Delaware North at Gideon Putnam, we are focused on creating an experience that delights every guest. The health and safety of our employees and guests is always our highest priority.

Our comprehensive Rest Assured™ program has introduced new health and safety standards aimed at helping to keep guests and employees safe while slowing the spread of COVID-19. It includes bolstered hygiene protocols to meet or exceed best-practice guidelines of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

After careful consideration with State and County health officials, we had temporarily suspended operation of our lodging, retail and food services and reservation office. But now we are excited to be resuming operations.
