Green Initiatives at Lookaway Inn
Lookaway Inn is committed to managing our overall impact on the environment without sacrificing the safety, comfort and enjoyment of our guests. The Inn strives to conserve water and energy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve air quality and minimize waste in many ways. Ceiling fans in all rooms offer alternative cooling even though the Inn is fully air-conditioned. We use environmentally friendly cleaning products wherever possible. Most of the Inn’s floors are natural wood with area rugs which greatly reduces cleaning energy and allergens.
