I would be too scared…..I am a total planner and that uncertainty would freak me out.

I agree with @audrey9398–I’m a planner too and I would be stressing out big time about it being finished! Plus, if the owner is flaky NOW, it might get even worse when the renovations start.

I obviously know nothing about the financial well-being of your guests, but for me, $280/night would be too much and I would stay elsewhere.

Good luck 🙂

I personally wouldn’t do it.  I personally think the price is a  bit steep to ask your guests to pay.

Plus renovations would scare me.

even if it is perfect is it worth all the potential stress over the renovations? I would keep looking in Vermont. Congrats btw!

I’d trust your dad over the sales office at that venue! If they’re not answering the phone now, imagine what it’ll be like when they’re 2 months behind renovation schedule and you’re trying to reach them.

Wouldn’t do it.

1. Really expensive for a hotel wedding guest to have to pay. (what does it include)

2. Other people want your business…make them work for it.

I’d look elsewhere too. That’s a high price for guests to pay, plus, what if you hate the place after the renovations? Maybe they’ll make so many changes you won’t like it as much and you’ll be stuck.

Vermont is a gorgeous state…where are you looking and for how many people?


Have you read through the local board for Vermont?
