Hello Mathis House Customers,
Thank you for visiting our website. The Victorian Tea Room is open for take out only. The business has shifted it's normal routine due to the Corona Virus-19, to a new way of offering our delicious meal service to the customers that love and have supported our business over the years.
Currently, the two owners are the only two members preparing the take out. We are Serve Safe Certified and we are practicing the CDC Standards to ensure that every safety precaution at the tea room is being followed. Unfortunately, we had to lay off our employees during this season of closure, but their safety and yours is our primary concern. Once we re-open and business starts to resume the normal tea schedule then everyone that is employed with the Mathis House will return. We appreciate your supporting the take out services during these extremely difficult times.
If you are looking to support the Mathis House during this time of closure, we encourage you to stay home and have enjoy your tea room favorites with your family. We are making homemade soups, desserts, tea sandwiches and scones daily. We have enrolled in a variety of food delivery services. One being, Toast (online take out ordering directly from our website), and Chowly, (launching next week that includes over 8 delivery services). For this week, we are relying on Door Dash and calls to the Inn, for car pick up door service from the large circular driveway in front of the Inn. You can call the Inn at 732-818-7580 or place your order on the web, pre pay by credit card, and enjoy your take out at home.
If you are on our website searching for a guest room, the Bed & Breakfast is open. If anyone books a stay, we close the room for 48 hours before re-booking and completely sanitizing the room. We are taking reservations after a screening process to find out your travel needs and circumstances.
If you are looking to book an overnight stay in the summer months or future, you can book and know that if you need to cancel for any reason, you may use your booking for up to two years at the Bed & Breakfast. If you have questions about room rates and availability, the best way to gain the information, is to call my cell at 609-529-7727 regardless of any rates you find on any third booking sites.
We know you love the gift shop. We are working on building a shopping cart online where you can do your gift shopping from home and have your purchases delivered or mailed. We hope to have this completed next week. We have so many wonderful Easter gifts and candies, all made here in the USA.
A very special way to support the Mathis House, if you wish to participate in our "ANGEL GIFT CARD PROGRAM", you can purchase a printable gift certificate online for Afternoon Tea for one (valued at $39), for $30 and an overnight stay (valued at $149-$349) for $100 to be used at any time during the year subject to availability when business resumes. We will offer this special program until April 30, 2020 to allow our regulars to receive a discount for a future visit.
If you are planning a party, wedding, bridal/baby shower or an event and need information about our venue, you can plan your future events with peace of mind. We are reducing the deposits to $100 and should you need to post pone for any reason, the deposit be applied to a later date or you will be given a gift certificate for tea service. During the closure, we have had the entire house power washed, we are working on beautifying the yard, and setting up outdoor seating for the warmer months. We have painted and re-decorated rooms in the tea room, so you will be pleased with the changes for when we resume our normal business operations. Gratefully, we have had a few bookings for events and we appreciate the support.
We have had many calls about Easter and Mother's Day. This is a huge season for us and we are taking it one day at a time. The Easter Hunt on April 5th has been cancelled. If you booked for the hunt, please call the Inn for your refund or use your credit toward a special tea time when the tea room reopens. Mother's Day, we cannot say if we will be open. Should the safety measures be lifted for social distancing, then we will host our Mother's Day teas during the month of May. We have ideas for the outdoor seating, senior only days, and closures for small groups for a private party that we are putting into place. We will provide more information as the days unfold.
Thank you for your time to read our updates and thank you so much in advance for loving our business as much as we do. We continue to pray for the safety of our Nation and community. Should you need to reach us directly for any reason, please give us a call at the Mathis House Victorian Bed & Breakfast and Tea Room at 732-818-7580 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All the best,
Vicki Weiss and Ron Mills
