Here are your instructions for self-checking in. If you'd like to check in with me when you arrive you're welcome to give me a call and ask any questions that you may have. I'll just assume that you are ok if you don't. The card you booked with is the one that will be used for the final balance. There is no need for you to do anything.
There is not a front desk or check-in area at the Main Inn. Unless the bar is open, you will find the doors locked. If you want a drink, call me on the priority line.
It's important to familiarize yourself with our property with a birds-eye view of the property so you don't get turned around. Here is a zoomed-in view of our Inn (change it to satellite to see it properly). You will be coming in off of North Campbell Rd. Once on Winstons Case Ct (our gravel road), you'll have about a quarter-mile drive to the Main Inn. When you reach the first fork in the road, stay to the right, and then follow the signs "To the Inn". The road will widen with a "Main Inn Guest Parking" sign with a parking lot just beyond. Go ahead and park in any of the spots to the right of the magnolia tree. The rooms are up the brick path past the coy pond and into the courtyard with the exception of the East Room. It is just past the coy pond on the right. Each room is marked with a name plaque. I'll leave the key in the door to your room.

Once on Winstons Case Ct (our gravel road), you'll have about a quarter-mile drive to the cottages. When you reach the first fork in the road, stay to the left. You will pair up with a white fence on your right-hand side. Continue straight. The cottages are laid out in a circle. Each one has a plaque out front with the name of the cottage. I'll leave the key in the door and a welcome card on the door.

The Stables Cottage is close to the Main Inn so the instructions are a little different. You will be coming in off of North Campbell Rd. Once on Winstons Case Ct (our gravel road), you'll have about a quarter-mile drive to the Main Inn. When you reach the first fork in the road, stay to the right, and then follow the signs "To the Inn". The road will widen with a "Main Inn Guest Parking" sign with a parking lot just beyond. Take a hard right before that sign and head down the small hill until you see the Stables Cottage. Park next to the covered area. Enter the cottage through the glass door next to the parking area.

Breakfast will be set up in the kitchen closet or kitchen if in a cottage. It will make a lot of sense when you explore the accommodation.
Restaurants are doing curbside pick-up/outside dining and getting back to normal with indoor dining.
The Wine Bar is open to guests during the week! I don't typically sit at the bar midweek, but if you call the in-house priority line I will step over and serve you some lovely wine. I try to close it down around 9 pm and am open to serving all day when available.
Using the fireplace is easy! While kneeling in front of the fireplace, open the compartment that houses the controls by folding the slatted portion below the logs towards yourself. Inside, you will find a knob and a push-button ignitor. The Cottages don't have a compartment, so you will simply see the controls. Enure the knob is in the "Off" position by rotating clockwise until it doesn't turn.
Please don't leave the logs on unattended. Turn the pilot light all the way off when you leave. If the fireplace turns off while using it, go ahead and turn the knob all the way off and wait for the unit to cool down. If you don't turn the knob off, the fire will relight later which poses a fire hazard.
Check out is simple: leave the key in the door like you found it and place kitchen trash outside the room. I won't enter the room for a couple of days as a precaution but I will pick up the trash. Please hang your laundry so it doesn't mold. Normal check out is 11 am.
It is Ladybug season! They tend to overpopulate during this time of the year and can be a little intrusive. I'll do my best to get them all out before you arrive but some high peaks are challenging to reach. While I'll be able to get most (or all) out, more will eventually get back in. Don't worry, they are completely harmless and tend to stay toward the ceiling where it is warmer.
