Our family of 4 and our 2 dogs evacuated Florida in the middle of the night, after the 4am weather report announced Irma had shifted West and was tracking directly over our house. We started driving North checking for hotels, no idea where we would end up. At that point, when you're scared about what the future will hold, your home, your safety and your frankly your life, we were willing to stay anywhere that would take us. After 3 solid hours of calling, begging and being turned away, I found The Inn at Blueberry Plantation in Alma, Georgia. I explained our dire situation to the woman who answered my call. With a calm and soothing Southern drawl, she told me she would call me back in a few minutes. My whole family was on pins and needles until my phone rang. This Southern Angel had a room for us!!!! We all screamed with delight as we drove the remaining 2.5 hours we had left to arrive at the Inn. When we arrived, I couldn't believe my eyes. It was beautiful. It had a lovely feel as soon as we walked in. There is a restaurant with a full bar, gorgeous room with hardwood floors, and the staff....these folks opened their Inn to evacuees on days they're normally closed. They worked so hard for us and many slept there so they could serve us the next day. We kept saying, "this is just too good to be true."
I cannot say enough wonderful things about the accommodations, the staff and the food. I would stay there anytime with zero hesitation.
Thank you IBP for turning our scary situation into a pleasant experience.
