We are very pleased that you have chosen The Manor House for your special getaway.  Above anything else, we want your visit with us to be one that you will always remember fondly.  Please be sure to let us know if there is anything we can do to ensure that your stay is as relaxing as possible.

Check In/Out.  Check in time is between 3-7 P.M.  Please let the innkeeper know if you need to come earlier, or would like to drop off your luggage earlier than 3:00 PM.  Check out is at 11:30a.m.  If you would like to extend your stay, please feel free to inquire.  We would be happy to accommodate you longer if we are able up until 2p.m.  Extended stays after 2p.m. will be charged for a half night’s room rate.  Anytime after 4p.m. will be charged for a full night’s room rate.

Planning Your Trip?
  Please see the Calendar of Events, Activities & Attractions, Area Entertainment, and Outdoor Sports on our web site.   There are also several maps, guides and entertainment brochures located in the bar just off the living room.


Keys and Locks.  The front door is left open, so there is no need to worry about being locked out.  All of the bedrooms have interior privacy locks.  There are keys in the room folders for your door if you need one.  Please return the keys to this folder when you check out.

Heating and Cooling.  The radiators in your room can be adjusted for your comfort from 1-5 (5 being the hottest).   Historic homes can be counted on for heating eccentricities!  We have tried to eliminate as many problems as possible, but you may hear clanging pipes occasionally.   Our Hot water heater is equipped to meet the needs of all our guests, unless everyone decides to shower at the same time.  If you are having any problems with heat or hot water, please let us know.  All of the guestrooms are equipped with ceiling fans.  They should be more than adequate for Norfolk’s cool summer evenings.  We do have several fans available if you do need additional cooling.

Chambermaid Service.  Your room will be cleaned daily.  If you would like fresh towels, please place your old ones in the tub or shower, otherwise as part of our conservation efforts, we will dry and re hang your towels, and new ones will be furnished every other day.  Please notify us if there is any damage in your room so that we can attend to it immediately.  Tipping is entirely at your discretion.

Need an Innkeeper?  Our office and living space are off the kitchen.  If you need assistance and do not see or hear us around, there is an intercom on the table by the front door.  Also, if we do happen to step out, we will leave our cell phone number on that table with the intercom, so please don’t hesitate to call for anything.

- The main entrance-
- At the end of the second floor hallway, there is a back staircase leading to a
  door which exits to the front of the house-
