My sister and I were set to stay in a hunting cabin on a hog hunt our husbands were on, (we just wanted to spend time together) however the cabin was miss represented! We knew we could not sleep on beds were the sheets were not changed between hunters and the place was rarely cleaned (if ever). My sister and I stopped by Faraway Inn hoping to stay 2 nights. Unfortunately they only had one night available. We asked how to find a place to purchase sheets, and explained our situation. After a few minutes of trying to understand directions, Wendy, the Inn Keeper, astounded us by saying "come with me, I can help." She gave us sheets, blankets, and towels the Inn no longer used in the cottages. The kindness and generosity was remarkable. We were stunned and very thankful. Wendy's hospitality to those that are not even staying at Faraway Inn only tells of the wonderful time anyone would have actually having the opportunity to stay. We will be back to stay at the Faraway Inn for the beautiful cottages and amenities, but most of all for the kindness and hospitality. I and my sister recommend you stay and be sure to say hello to Wendy!
