Rates: Your room rate includes evening snacks, soft drinks, wine and cheese and full three course breakfasts. We guarantee that you will receive the lowest price by booking directly through our web site or by calling us directly. We will beat whatever price you find on an OTA (Expedia, Booking.com, etc) web site.
Guaranteeing a reservation: Receipt of a deposit of one night's stay or half the total stay will hold a reservation. We accept personal and Travelers checks, MasterCard, American Express, Visa and Discover. When a credit card is used for a reservation it is processed the day the reservation is made. Checks should be received within 7 days of making a reservation.
Cancellations: Refunds, less a 10% processing and cancellation fee per room booked, will be made if notice of cancellation is received at least 10 days before the date of arrival (see exceptions below). Any reservations canceled within the 10 day cancellation period before the date of arrival will be charged in full unless the room or rooms is/are rebooked. We will also offer a "Rain Check" so that guests will not lose their deposits. Exceptions: For special Weekends (UVA Graduation, Wedding Weekends, Montpelier Races, Montpelier Wine Festival, and the Woodberry Forest School Graduation) a 50% Deposit is required with the remainder due 60 days prior to the weekend/event, no refund if cancellation is made within the 60 day period prior to the event.
Party of 3 or 4? Several rooms either have beds for three and/or lend themselves to accommodating a rollaway. They are: Garden, Madison and the Piedmont Suite. Each additional person in a room is $25 per night.
To make reservations: You may phone us toll free at (888) 672-5597, click on the On-Line Availability and Reservations link, or send us an e-mail with your requirements or requests.
One Discount per stay. Discounts cannot be combined. Use of Bed and Breakfast.com Gift Certificates or Gift Cards, or bookings through Hotels.Com or Expedia.com, Priceline.com or other OTA's constitutes use of a discount.
Pets: Pets are great and we want them to bring their humans with them to enjoy Mayhurst. With 37 acres there is lots of room for pets to take their humans for nice long walks - or for a swim in our pond. We even put a basket with towels, bowls, treats and a sheet to put on the bed because pets sometimes like to sleep with their humans. We accommodate pets in the "School House" or "Garden Room" only because pets are not allowed in the Manor House (health department rules). An additional $25 charge per stay is assessed for the special cleaning required.
Children: We like kids even better than we like pets. The Willis Family had 8 Children (probably why there are 22 rooms in the Manor House) and we are sure they all had a lot of fun growing up at Mayhurst. With 12 inch thick walls and 14 inch floors most people never realize that there are children here at all. Well behaved, supervised children are always welcome. There is no charge for Children 6 or under. We have A Pac'N'Play and crib available (we have grandkids).
Check in/out: Check-in is from 3:00 to 8:00 p.m. Check out is by 12 noon. If your plans call for a later arrival please inform us so that we may greet you properly.
Breakfast: Enjoy a full, bountiful breakfast of baked breads and muffins, juices, individual fruit plates and rotating entree course. Special diets can be accommodated. Of course there is always plenty of freshly ground gourmet coffee or teas to your taste. Breakfast is served from 8:30 to 10:00 on the patio courtyard, or in front of the fireplace in the dining room. Other times can be accommodated.
Smoking: For the comfort and health of all guests, smoking is not permitted inside the Inn. Our guests may smoke on the front porch, balcony of the Italian Suite, terrace of the Garden room and grounds.
Virginia Green Lodging: We believe in protecting our environment. Mayhurst has several "Green" initiatives including: Recycling, use of CFL Bulbs, water conserving bathroom fixtures, use of Energy Star appliances and a number of guest selectable methods to reduce energy and water use. Mayhurst "Green Policies" are listed in our Guest Information Folders in each Guest Room. We encourage our guests to help preserve our environment.
Business Guests: We welcome business guests, with reduced rates for single occupancy, Sunday through Thursday. Business travelers entertaining clients or requiring small meeting facilities will find a private room plus phone, fax and printer/copier on premises. All rooms have High Speed WIFI access, power strips, chairs and working surfaces. Catch up on cable news over coffee in the library prior to breakfast. A lite or hearty breakfast is served at a time to suit your schedule. Lite eaters might enjoy granola: a plate of fresh fruit, and/or yogurt. Heartier appetites will opt for our full Plantation Style breakfast. All meals are accompanied by juice, coffee, tea and breads. Rate for our Road Runner Special is $99.95 + tax per day.
Each of our lovely rooms is centrally air-conditioned, has a private bath, hairdryer, Fine Chocolates, bottled water, quality toiletries, luxury linens and High Speed WiFi. Seven of our eight rooms have romantic fireplaces. The Garden Room is fully compliant with the regulations of the American Disabilities Act. If you need anything that you forgot or don't find in your room please ask.
