Get your accommodations booked!

Do you have your room booked yet?

We have confirmed with the Sword Motor Inn that of all the rooms we reserved there is only ONE room left in the hotel for that weekend. They do have a few rooms on hold for a wedding party and will release that hold as of July 1st, so people can ask to be put on the waiting list in case one of those rooms becomes available.

The next closest hotel, just up the road is:
Bancroft Inn & Suites
Tollfree: 888-219-4900

Please visit the Chamber of Commerce website to see a list of other accommodations in the Bancroft area and book a space now to avoid disappointment! The link is
