I just called the Woodberry Inn and left a message. Hopefully someone will return my call. The recorded message said that they will be reopening on April 30th under new management. Stay tuned for further information.

Humm, maybe we should start considering alternatives for our last evening in VA. I'm not too worried, by this point of the trip, I'll be so worn out I could sleep in the car! :hilarious:

Okay. I have not heard back from anyone at the Woodberry Inn. :( Anyway, if no one truly objects, there is a Days Inn nearby that has rooms available for ~$65 including tax. I will also send this out in an email to the group.

Thanks, Dana. Consensus should agree with recommendation of Days Inn - Fancy Gap before starting to reserve since there are no credits/refunds for any changes.

OK with me. I will wait for a consensus before booking.

Forget the Days Inn!:banana: I just spoke with the new owner of the Woodberry Inn. Apparently, Retired-Teach had already reserved 14 of the 16 rooms on our behalf. I discussed the rates with Shep Nance, the new owner, and we agreed that it would be $70 for the night. When you call (919-937-8990), just let him know that you are part of Robert Springer's Porsche party. Game on folks!

So... with April staring us in the face now, do we need to make a decision about whether or not to use the Woodbury Inn?

I take it the new owners response has been lukewarm.

I thought that was a done deal at $70/night. What happened?

Did anyone call and get confirmed rooms at the Woodbury yet? I didn't think anyone had. If you do have a confirmation, then I take back everything about finding another spot!

I had a verbal confirmation from Shep Nance, the new owner (919-937-8990), on/about March 12th. That was when we learned that a block of rooms had been reserved for the "porsche group". Have not heard anything since. Hopefully, he will respond to Dana's calls. WOULD be nice to have something more concrete.
