Rental Policy

A Message to Short Term Rental Owners and Their Guests

The Town of Germantown does not have the authority to shut down short term rentals. However, based on the latest governmental recommendation that anyone who recently left New York City should self-quarantine for fourteen days, we strongly urge those engaged in renting short term follow these important guidelines and limit rentals to two weeks or longer. Moreover, we strongly advise all hosts to require their renters to observe the 14-day self-quarantine recommendation of both state and county government.

Germantown is a town that always welcomes visitors, and we ask that during this challenging time, all residents and guests join together and do their share to flatten the curve, stop the spread of the virus and protect our community.  

If we all work together and make the necessary sacrifices today we will get through this.
