About Reservations

Q. Can I book the entire house at once?

A. Yes. Simply use our online reservation system to reserve all the rooms. You'll receive a discount for booking all the rooms at once.

Q. What are your check-in and check-out times?

A. Check-in is at 6:00 a.m. and check-out is 3:00 p.m.

Q. Can I come by myself or with a small group?

Reservations are made by the room, not per person. If you have a small group, you can find one of our smaller rooms that can accommodate your needs. Occasionally we open our rooms up to singles - sign up for our Small Group alert to be notified of these openings.

Q. Can I come early or stay late?

A. All reservations include arrival on the Thursday before your weekend at no additional cost. You can extend your stay by arriving as early as Wednesday and/or staying until Monday for a small fee. Our McKinney Inn has a 3 person minumum for this option, and our Tyler Inn has a 4 person minimum.

Q. Can I stay during the week?

A. We do not accept weekday reservations - all reservations require a Friday & Saturday night stay.

Q. What is your cancellation policy?

A. Our cancellation policy can be found here.

About Chef Service

Q. Do you offer chef service?

A. Yes. We can arrange to have our chefs prepare, cook, serve, and clean up 5 meals for you during your stay. Meals include dinner on Friday, breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturday, and brunch on Sunday. Chef service is available at an additional cost. Please visit the particular Inn's page to view pricing.

Q. Can we cook for ourselves?

A. Yes. Our kitchens are fully equipped with dinnerware, silverware and small appliances that you can use. If the chef will be cooking during your stay, we ask that you have the kitchen clean and available to them two hours before and after each service so they can prepare your meals and clean up.

Q. We have less than 12 people in our group. Can we still have the chef service?

A. Our chefs require a minimum of 12 people to use their service. If you have less than 12 people in your group, we will contact the other groups to inquire their interest in also having chef service if you like. If no other groups have your weekend booked, you may still reserve chef service by paying for 12 people regardless of the number of people in your group.
