I planned a trip to Virginia for a friend's wedding in what I know is the 'high season' for the area (Fall). It was really difficult to find a place near the wedding that was nice and affordable. Practically impossible, actually.
I finally found the Inn on Thistle Hill and was enchanted by pictures and reviews, a lovely & unique room for a couple that was reasonably priced. I made a reservation.
A few weeks later, the innkeeper noticed that I had booked for a Thursday and Friday. She called me - I didn't answer. She tried again later that week, sent an email. She just wanted to make sure I didn't mean Friday and Saturday - which I did! What a lifesaver! I would have shown up without a hotel room the night of the actually wedding! Worse yet, I know that by then, it would have been impossible to find another.
She graciously changed by reservation and told another trying to reserve that room on Saturday that it was booked.
A couple more weeks pass and as it turns out, my boyfriend can't make the trip due to work. I have to cancel that reservation! But they stayed true to their policy. It was ten days before the event so I received a refund.
I do hope that one day I get to stay here. If they are this wonderful to guests before they even arrive, I can only imagine what exceptional service they provide.
