The Guestbook

Reading what guests have written in the guestbook is very much a gift for me. Here are a couple excerpts:

"the setting is idyllic, the bed was heavenly, the breakfast divine"

"I've never been to a B&B before. My perception is forever changed. I didn't want to leave the outdoors once I sat down on the couch on the porch - ah!"

"we've found our new home away from home"

"your place is spiritual"

"a menu set to impress"

and my favorite...."we'll be back!"

A Soul-Satisfying Weekend!
