I made reservations for this past weekend, Sept 20-23, 2012 since I was told there was a wedding the following weekend and no openings. The reservation person evidently got her dates reversed because the wedding was this past weekend while we were there. Evidently we were the only non-wedding guests. The wedding party arived Fri. night and partied all throughout the night. The wedding took place on Sat. early evening with a reception in the courtyard with an open bar. At midnight they had a send off of the newlyweds with a very loud sparkler event below our window. About an hour later the attendees decided to go to bed, sort of, after conversing on the halls and stairwells for an hour or so.
Our room was on the corner overlooking the front door on one side and the courtyard on the other. The central air was broken in our room so we had to have windows open. All of the wedding events were right below one of our windows. Everyone was very loud.
We had a room in the inn this time and it was not in very good repair. The bed was worn out in that we sunk into the middle of it. The bathroom door wouldn't latch, the door on the large piece of furniture that housed the TV, coffee maker etc. was coming off it's hinges. I understand being older and having character but most things in the room were just old and worn out. When I told the front desk about not being able to sleep for 2 out of the 3 nights because of the wedding, they didn't seem to care and said "they were a little loud".
We came for our Anniversary, since we had honeymooned there and had been back for our 5th and now our 10th. We don't plan on going back. The only redeeming value was the Frostt Tavern in the basement. The food and service were excellent.
We DON'T plan on coming back.
