"Our stay with our very large family reunion was exceptional, beyond our expectations. The Inn was absolutely beautiful, the rooms divine,the grounds gorgeous, the commercial kitchen a real WOW! Our family is comprised of many gourmet chefs and they were in heaven - and so were we as recipients of such lovely meals! Gathering fresh eggs every morning fed our entire group. We picked bowls of fresh blackberries and apples and made two huge pans of freshly baked cobbler - a five star. I must say the amenities surpassed any 5-star resort or hotel. One must experience all of this to know the difference of bare essentials and lushness. We have already booked our stay for next year. There was a 28 thumbs-up vote of YES to return and we can't wait for our next reunion. Dave and Sheri are most wonderful. They are great hosts who were there for anything and everything we needed. One word for the Carrville Inn - magical.
"Perfect for Family reunions !!
We just had a wonderful stay with 32 people for our family reunion. The Overly's have thought of everything on this property and you will want for nothing . Our guests ranging from 9 1/2 mos to 60+ were all impressed and had plenty to keep them busy. With the pool, volleyball court, horse shoe pit, tree swing, large lawn area, and nearby creek we were entertained throughout our stay. The house was beyond amazing . We loved hanging out in the bar area with the juke box. But the house had many areas that could accommodate your guests at any one time. Couldn't have been more happy with our choice !! Would highly recommend for groups of any age especially ones with children !!"

"We could not have asked for a better venue for our wedding. Everything was absolutely perfect. Thank you for your kindness and hospitality. We loved every single minute and we hate to leave. We are already planning an anniversary party here for next year."
"Best Place on Earth"
My wife and I hosted a 4 night family reunion at the Carrville Inn during the summer of 2011. On first glance many were a bit turned off by what they felt was a too "out of the way” location. However, it's really not hard to get to, the drive is beautiful, and the Inn is more than worth it. Everyone loved the Inn, the grounds, and the location. Everyone agreed that it was even nicer than they expected. The Inn is clean and simply perfect. We felt like it was our home. What I personally wasn't expecting was the grounds; they will blow you away. Beautiful grass, trees, and flowers everywhere you look. Historic items placed here and there to give it flavor. A very nice swimming pool area with toys for the kids to play with. A beautiful barn with chickens (we had fresh eggs every day!). One thing they don't show much of on their website is the huge outdoor patio space. Tons of outdoor seating here with a very large fire pit and a commercial 2-tank propane BBQ grill. Back to the Inn, I love to cook and I was in dreamland in this kitchen. It's a large commercial kitchen designed to feed a crowd. All the bedrooms were clean and beautiful. The common areas gave us plenty of room to spread out. We loved hanging out at the bar and playing games. Overall we loved the place. Not a single complaint. Dave and Sheri (the owners) were wonderful. My sister-in-law, who drove 20 hours to get here from Albuquerque said this was the "Best place on Earth”. I personally can't wait to return. I'm already working on my next visit!
"50th wedding anniversary and family reunion - Wonderful!!"
We rented the entire resort including the cabin and had two RVs on site also. The pool was enjoyed as well as huge swing and hammock. Everything was so clean and neat, we could not expect more. The outside barbeque area is wonderful for our large group, with tables, lights and huge barbeque and serving area. We brought our ski boat and put it in at Trinity Center which was convenient and enjoyed by the teenagers. Some hiked into Boulder Lakes Trinity Wilderness and were thrilled. We had a catered dinner one day. The well supplied commercial kitchen was a pleasure for us to work in as well as the caterer. The rooms are beautifully furnished with comfortable beds and bathrooms and Victorian furniture and accessories. What a romantic setting for our 50th anniversary. The front porch was popular with the older set as they could swing on the swing and enjoy the beautiful snow covered mountains and watch the kids in their activities. The owners even allowed the children to gather the eggs from the chickens and we could use them in our meals. That was a great extra! This venue is remote but this element kept everyone in the area which proved to be one of the big reasons we had such great success with the multi generational gathering. We rented for one week which gave everyone a real chance to slow down and enjoy each other as well as all the beauty around us. The owners are hard working and very alert and helpful when needed and always so kind to everyone. We felt so blessed to be able to have this special event in our lives at this location. It was more than I could even expect in my dreams of what our 50th anniversary would be like. A huge thank you to Dave and Sheri Overly for their vision of what this place could be and all their hard work to make it happen. We are most grateful!!
If "If you are looking for a place for a family get-together, a wedding, or as in our case, a Memorial for my husband, you couldn't possibly find a better place. It is beautiful, meticulously maintained, both inside and out. You find yourself transported back to the days when it was a Stage Stop. All the rooms are beautifully furnished, a kitchen to "die for" as attested to by those who love to cook, has everything you could ever possibly need. You can even gather your own fresh eggs! The old time Bar was the gathering place in the evenings, and the old "Juke Box" got a real workout. The grounds are also beautiful; a large paved area with several big Bar BQ's and a large fire pit."
"We loved the Inn. Perfect for a family weekend. The kids had a blast. The swing is wonderful! Thank you for your hospitality. WE LOVE THIS PLACE!!!"
"We had the most amazing time! It was everything that we hoped for and more!!
"I just wanted to let you know what a PERFECT family reunion we had at your place! Everybody loved it, and it certainly was the ideal venue for an event like ours. It was so rewarding to look around and see a group at the pool, a group on the (croquet and swing) lawn, people on the porch, and people coming and going to other places. The kitchen and dining area worked out very well--an excellent gathering spot at meal times--and we couldn't have asked for a better barbecue area. We really appreciated the way you handled your presence--visible and helpful, but not intrusive.
I know I'd love to come back. Maybe not next year, but perhaps in two. We've been talking the place up with friends and other acquaintances and hope we can create some business for you. Let me know if you'd ever like to use me for a reference. I'd be happy to take a call from someone to talk about our experience."
Best weekend ever!
"I celebrated my wedding weekend with family and friends at the Inn and it was the most amazing time! The grounds and Inn were immaculate! Perfect for our family and friends to relax, party and get to know each other. Dave and Sheri are beyond nice and so helpful! I can't imagine my dream wedding taking place anywhere else! Thank You!"
