Sometimes it truly is the little things that make me happy…

For the nearly nine years that I have been the Innkeeper at the 1795 Acorn Inn, guests have gotten two keys upon arrival; one for the front door and the Dining Room door and one for their respective rooms.  Since the Inn is locked at all times, these keys made it possible for guests to come and go as they please.  Always in the back of my mind though was the thought that although these keys say do not duplicate, they (name not to be mentioned) duplicate them for me as needed.  So, why couldn’t guests get them duplicated and come back at any time?  I’m not thinking of the kind, respectful, wonderful guests that I usually have the pleasure of meeting…

So, years ago I decided to make the investment and purchase Schlage locks with keypads.  This year, when my fabulous brother Roger was visiting, he installed them for me.  And, now that I have gotten adept at programming and deprogramming, my vision is complete.

Simple

1795 Acorn Inn Front Door Lock

Upon arrival, guests are asked to provide a four-digit code that would be easy for them to remember.  Their code is programmed into the locks and voila… they can come and go as they please.  Upon their departure, their code is removed from the system.  Simple.

For those guests that cannot make our regular check in hours of 3:00 to 5:00 pm and have made arrangements in advance of their stay for a late check in, we can input their code of choice on the day of their arrival.  Once inside the Inn, they are able to follow our simple self-check process and use their personal code for their entire stay..

So far, so good.  And, I am happy to say, another improvement completed.
