Unethical

My son and his bride paid to have their wedding ceremony at the gazebos. The "Inn" notified them the day before that the grounds were flooded after heavy rains the night before. Refusing to refund a dime, the "Inn" offered credit instead, even though the bride and groom had paid in full beyond the deposit. The other facilities that were offered as credit were in no way shape or form suitable for a wedding ceremony. The staff was nice as pie when booking the venue, but when they failed to deliver the product, the staff became incredulous at the idea of any refund. Bottom line, I would avoid this place at all costs if you want to guarantee a trouble free transaction.
Angry Father

Management Response
Due to inclement weather, the bride and groom were unable to use the first option for their ceremony site. As always, we have a back-up plan but, in their case we offered them two sites to choose from for their ceremony because of availability, however the bridal party was rude to staff members so the owner offered a gift certificate to come back and use it on whatever they would like to, though the wedding party had declined. The Inn never offers a gift certificate because of back-up plans but due to rudeness from the bridal party, the Inn offered one. It also clearly states on the bridal party's proposal that if needed, a back-up plan will be offered and there are no refunds. The proposal also states the payment is due 7 days prior to event. The Inn has the best staff that anyone could ever ask for and they did not deserve the verbal abuse they received.

Picture Perfect

My husband and I had our wedding ceremony and reception at Kelly's Ford on June 11th and the only word that could possibly describe our experience is PERFECT. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. Even the owner Linda was there and did what she could to ensure that it was everything my husband and I wanted. It unfortunately did rain but the coordinator who was with me, James, was very considerate and was willing to make some last minute adjustments to our original rain plan. Despite some minor changes the ceremony itself was beautiful. The horse and carriage, although a little bumpy was great and everyone loved it. I got numerous compliments about everything from the food to the location. The room, the general Lee suite, was luxurious and very clean, while the breakfast the next morning was delicious, hot, and on time. I have to say that all in all the Inn at Kelly's Ford is a gem. A picturesque landscape that is hard to come by now a days and for a price that just cannot be beat.
