My now husband and I on a whim decided to go to Lava Hot Springs for a quick get away from South Jordan Utah. He found Greystone Manor and we enjoyed our time and the hospitality so much we later came again and brought some friends. The experience was so great both times that I decided we would have a family vacation there. Christmas of 2011 I made up cards for each of our 5 kids announcing that we would be having Christmas in July. We told them what to bring, and where to meet for the drive to Lava. Vicky began working with me around November of 2011 and helped be plan an amazing and memorable family vacation. She planned meals for us, we did a fancy dinner on Friday eve and a more casual BBQ Saturday eve. She set up us all having wrist bands which allowed all our kids access to Lava Hot Springs, the Waterpark, and tubing down the river. Our childern were 20 or older so they could go do what they wanted to when they wanted to. We decided we would all go ziplining as well and she set this up and had the jeep come pick us all up right from The Greystone and take us out to zip line Saturday morning (here is the kicker!, we had a grandboy that was too young to go ziplining so Vicky's wonderful husband took him fishing).
That is not all. It was founders day weekend in Lava and Vicky reserved the lawn of one of her other homes along the main street so we would have an area to sit and watch the parade.
All of this was discussed back and forth and Vicky made a package deal based on what we wanted as we booked her entire bed and breakfast to accomodate our kids and their guest of choice. Amazing place, great history and great hospitality.
Know that some rooms have to share a bathroom and that bathroom only has a bathtub. Not great when you are sharing the bed and breakfast with strangers but it is workable and all the other pluses far outweigh this disadvantage.
Vicky, thank you greatly for the hard work you put into the planning and execution of being a gracious host. The food was amazing and my family will not forget this vacation ever. We have done others including a cruise and I believe all prefered the one we shared and The Greystone!! A big shout out to your husband as well!!
