Policy over loyalty

Been a long time visitor to this property. Overall, have loved it. But this year, several weeks after booking a weekend visit, we received news our 9-year-old grandson has a rare, aggressive cancer. I... more

Dear dhenninger99, We are so saddened to learn about the condition of your grandson.  Many of us have experienced family or friends struggle with cancer and know the challenges and triumphs that come with such a battle.  Please know we will be rooting for him (and for you)!   As with any hotel, we have policies that govern how rates are sold so that we may offer the best rates possible. Such was the rate you purchased, one that offered a substantial discount in exchange for a set of dates that may not be changed.  I am encouraged that we offered to flex enough by allowing different dates of arrival, but I'm truly sorry we did not go far enough under the difficult circumstances you were facing.  Though we have a duty to enforce our rules, we are a family run concern that values unique circumstances, loyalty, and doing the right thing.  We're truly sorry that we did not excel in applying these principles in your interactions with us.  Having discussed the situation with our team, I would like to discuss it directly with you.  Please let me know the best way to contact you or call me directly at 760.729.1151
