Amazing experience, so magical
I felt like I was staying in a palace. The residence was amazing and the staff were so polite and helpful. The area was so beautiful and when I woke up in the morning it felt like an episode of freaky Friday, as if I had switched places with a prince. The house was stunning and being able to walk around and enjoy everything the property had to offer was a different experience I had never encountered before. 10/10 would recommend.Sent on 01/31/2021

Dream Come True!
Having my wedding at The Morehead Inn was a dream come true. From my first encounter with Dorrys and the initial tour I was blown away. The Inn is absolutely beautiful and has everything you need for an intimate wedding. Dorrys was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. She was kind, professional and responsive. She had great ideas and was always open to let us stop by for a quick chat or to ask questions. I thought planning during a pandemic was going to be stressful but it was a breeze. Dorrys was always informed on the latest mandates and everyone made our guests and I feel comfortable the entire stay. The food was AMAZING! We chose appetizers from the catering menu and it was absolutely delicious. There were option for some amazing food and it was very hard to choose! The staff from the catering company was great and there was plenty of food and drink for the night. If you are thinking about booking The Morehead Inn then do it, you will not regret having this unique and memorable venue.Sent on 02/01/2021

Exactly what we needed!
Dorrys and the Morehead Inn were our 2020 wedding angels! We wanted a venue that would accommodate a smaller wedding size but still feel special and romantic (our original venue was a huge ballroom that would have felt empty with our downsize from 160 to 29 people). From the second I reached out to Dorrys- about 90 days before the wedding- she was warm, friendly, flexible, responsive, and just everything we needed. We were so lucky that our original wedding date became available, and we were able to have a GORGEOUS wedding that actually had some elements I had originally sacrificed for a bigger wedding (hello beautiful staircase!) The atmosphere is elegant and romantic, the food is amazing, the staff are beyond friendly and professional. My husband and I could not believe how much our COVID friendly wedding still felt like a "normal" wedding, and it is all thanks to The Morehead Inn. We will be back for our anniversary every year if we can!Sent on 12/12/2020
