YOUR STORIES

My husband and I loved our visit. It was top notch! We love the town so much we wanna move there soon! Very classy.
Diana Perry

Thank you for the privilege of staying at The Inn. Our reservations were completed at the last minute, and yet you were flexible in meeting our needs. Our group was impressed by how the integrity of the older architecture and structure were maintained, even with the thoroughly modern renovation efforts needed to make it into a commercial business.

Allan Sterbinsky, Stanton, TN Mayor
We had a wonderful time staying in Stanford. Your home is awesome. I love the old woodwork and big baseboards. Thanks for a great stay!
Debbie, Gibson, Indiana
A wonderful hotel! Great one-night stay and did not want to leave the next day. We’ve already planned another stay. I could not say enough good things about the accommodations!

Thank you for allowing us to step back in time, slow down, and experience the hometown charm of Stanford. This is a magical town and we will be back.

Ted and Tamara

Beautiful. Peaceful. Great small town and wonderful, comfortable lodging. Like stepping back to a time when people still said hello while passing on the streets.

A MESSAGE FROM FOUNDER ANGELA CORRELL

Developing Peace and Human Flourishing in Stanford

decorative framing graphic

A few years ago, we hosted a summit in Stanford with the leaders of several American charitable organizations to discuss common goals. While there, one man gave us words to express what we were trying to do in our headquarters town: “Stanford has Shalom and Human Flourishing like I’ve only seen in one other place in the world.”

Shalom is the Hebrew word for Peace. Human flourishing means positive emotional, psychological, spiritual, and social functioning. He paid us a rich compliment and gave us words to explain why we were renovating old structures and bringing hospitality businesses back into town.
