How to Book your Afternoon Tea Reservations

Special Note – We use our bed and breakfast reservation service to book both our bed and breakfast and our tea reservations. Recent changes to our service appearance can make our tea reservations a little confusing. Our service has recently added the “Check In – Check Out” dates on our reservations. We have asked them to remove it, but they aren’t able to. We are currently working on finding another reservation service that can help us. In the meantime, please follow our instructions below:

To book a tea reservation, click on the tea reservation button.

Once on our reservation site, select the number of guests at the top left side. Under Guest, you will see the dates.

With this issue we ask that you select the date you would like to come for the “Check In” date. For the “Check Out ” date, just put the next day. We will know that you are leaving the same day you come, not the next day. Then you just select the room you would like to have your tea and complete your booking.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 540-621-7340

We are sorry for the inconvenience. We are working on resolving this issue.
