Due to WilloBurke be a very small inn, it is very hard for us to recoup the loss of potential guests that we turn away due to Curtesy Room Blocks, and not being able to rent all the rooms in the block. If we are to grant a Curtesy Room Block, it will be on a case by case scenario and will not exceed eight weeks. If consideration is paid in advance for the Room Blocks, we can negotiate an extended reasonable close-out. Please contact us for further information.
