What are your policies regarding Visitors?
The Inn’s hotel policies must be as unique as hotel itself and therefore anyone accessing Guest rooms and common spaces must be registered Guests of the hotel. As we consider our Guest comfort and enjoyment as our highest priority we must reserve our limited areas and amenities for our Guests only. This includes our hotel parking, breakfast, and shuttle. There are many great places in the area to meet up with friends and family and our hotel staff would be happy to make recommendations.
Due to the unique nature of The Inn we kindly ask that Groups reserve an entire house. We want all of our Guests to enjoy a quiet and relaxing stay at The Inn. For this reason, we do not combine groups in part of a house shared with Guests who are not affiliated with the Group. We cannot guarantee placement of rooms in the same area of a house if the entire house has not been contracted. The Inn also has a 10:00p quiet time. After this time Guests are not permitted to gather in rooms or commons areas. Booking an entire house allows for the freedom of Groups to gather and enjoy each other’s company. We no longer host weddings, showers, reunions or other social events.
