We picked Holladay House to host our elopement just this month. Because of visa issues we had very little time to plan. Sharon took it all in stride and put together a lovely little ceremony for us that we will remember forever.
The inn itself is quite charming. We spent the bulk of our time in our suite, the dining room and the parlor.
The suite was a nice size, with modern appointments in the bathroom, and a sitting room with satellite TV. The bedroom portion of the suite featured a queen sized bed, a dresser, wardrobe and a lovely fireplace that would have likely been more intriguing had it not been June.
The dining room and parlor are side by side. Both are very pleasant and serviceable for small events. Our ceremony was held in the parlor, and we enjoyed evening coffee and morning breakfast in the dining room.
The breakfast was really first rate. Sharon started us off with a berry crisp, followed by a delicious quiche with tasty ham and rosemary for flavor. Along side was a crisp cheesy toast and coffee from a local roaster.
No one believes reviews if there aren't a few nit picks so here they are. Not a one of them interfered with our stay in the least though. The inn has stood there since before the civil war...and the floors creak. I'd be surprised if they didn't, and I couldn't obtain an IP address from the house wifi on my phone or tablet. There you have it...forced to deal with creaky floors and 3G data. I don't know how we survived. Honestly, I can't imagine a better stay. Sharon put together a wedding for us in just a weeks time and we loved every minute of our stay.
