We all just recently stayed at the Esmeralda Inn for a wedding. We loved sleeping with the window open and listening to the sounds of the river. It was also a gorgeous view out the window as well. The room was a bit small, (a one bed - a VERY VERY comfortable bed at that) but it was perfect for what we needed. A nice up to date clean room and bathroom. We also had Direct TV in our room so that was a nice touch and an incredible Bose alarm clock radio / sound system.
The staff was accommodating and friendly. By the end of the three day trip they knew each of us and what room everyone was in ... sometimes I could even ask if they had seen the bride or someone else in the wedding party and they could point me in the right direction! Amazing.
They also had a great game room which was a nice place for people to gather and spend time together, but not feel crammed in someones room. The kitchen off the game room was especially a nice touch. They also had a jacuzzi and fire pit but I was so busy all weekend we did not have a chance to take advantage - but I know others did!
The wedding rehearsal dinner and reception were at the restaurant and I can not stress enough how amazing this food was. Rehearsal dinner was a pig roast with tons a fabulous sides and desserts. The reception had a AMAZING southern lasagna which I couldn't get enough of - and I'm a picky eater.
Thank you Esmeralda Inn and Staff ... you made my friends wedding not only a fun wedding, but a fun vacation get away too!!! :)
