Guest Review

Retirement Party - Perfect in Every Way

We hosted a retirement party here on a Sunday afternoon with about 30 people. It was absolutely perfect! Josh is the general manager and he is made for hosting. He made it so easy for me and paid attention to every detail. Charlie was his assistant and he was wonderful. They made a very relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere for all of us.

This is MUCH better than renting a banquet hall or hosting at a restaurant. It felt like you were in a nice cozy home with lots of room to spread out but not so big that the guests got separated. They enjoyed the back porch also. The kids played football on the front lawn.

They made a delicious appetizer spread that seemed like way more than I paid for. They were very generous. The coffee and lemonade bar was super cute and delicious. They made sure I had all the cables needed for a slideshow presentation. I honestly couldn't imagine a better place to host an event.

They arranged the furniture specifically for the type of event I wanted to hold. I am very excited to share this review so others can enjoy The Clay Inn for their special events. It is very affordable. You will be taken care of much more than any other event I have hosted. My guest were from Roanoke and Blue Ridge so it was a bit of a drive. They all said they loved it! The drive it worth it because of the service, atmosphere and nice catering. I'd be happy to be a reference for anyone needing more information. THANK YOU!
