Meet the Innkeepers

John and Kelly Heckman welcome you to Winridge Manor, a beautiful bed and breakfast and event venue located near the glorious Blue Ridge Mountains. Owning a bed and breakfast had been a dream for these “newlyweds.” Hence, they embarked on a mission to educate themselves and locate the perfect inn. After a long two-year journey, they discovered Winridge Manor and immediately knew that this was “home!” Check out their blog page to learn more about their innkeeping adventure. During your visit, let them entertain you with some of their humorous stories! You will quickly discover that they LOVE their roles as innkeepers and are happy to include you as part of the “Winridge Family.”

John, a retired member of the United States Air Force, has an extensive background in sales and event planning. Kelly, who has her Master’s Degree in Education, has also served as an event coordinator and director. Together, with their team of top-notch vendors, they offer couples full-service wedding packages at affordable prices.
