HANOVER — Maynard House, an eight-bedroom home-away-from-home for patients and families in Hanover, has temporarily closed due to COVID-19 surges, staffing challenges and renovations, according to its Facebook page and a message on its answering machine.

A Sunday message posted to its Facebook page said that the nonprofit on South Street next to the Howe Library will use the next few months to “complete some overdue renovations and reorganize.”

It asks that people check back in October for reopening updates.

Phone and email messages sent to Maynard House, formerly the Upper Valley Hostel, were not immediately returned.

An early July post on the Maynard House Facebook page sought applications for the position of resident manager. Compensation for the position, which requires guest management, light housekeeping, coordinating volunteers and evening and weekend shifts, was listed as full-time residence in an on-site studio apartment with no rent or utilities.

The 40-year-old organization, which is funded by donations and guest fees, provides patients and their families with a place to stay while undergoing medical treatment. As of 2018, the house operated on an annual budget of about $160,000 and served approximately 3,000 guests each year.
