I admit I didn't stay over night, but I did tour the grounds and the college campus and was blown away. I plan to stay there on our next trip through the area. I was impressed by Berry College which shares the 26,000 acres. The architecture of the campus is outstanding (some donated by Henry Ford). I loved the log...

I've heard about how excellent the facilities, staff, setting, and experience are for years, but had never had a chance to go. Now that my wife and I have spent a weekend there, I can personally attest that it's all true and then some. I give it my highest recommendation.

We stayed at the Normandy Inn. It was a perfect place for our group of leaders to meet for a time of relaxation and connection. Relationships were nurtured because of the peaceful surroundings. The rooms were 5+ stars, complete with everything. The staff was delightful and gracious. All that we talked to were graduates of Berry College! The surroundings were...

Stayed at the Normandy Inn with a group of pastoral couples. The staff was unbelievably encouraging and hospitable. Our rooms were big and almost luxurious. The grounds were beautiful. The history of the place, Berry College, was a real tribute to people devoted to Christian Service.

“If you have a choice only select an upstairs room they have great windows that crank open to the country air at night. The nbathroom showers are tiny but there is not a choice no tubs very difficult to shave your legs. The downstairs room were tiny and the windows were too high for a view. This is important for an optimum stay ask for upstairs....trust me on this recommendation.”
