Our guests say so many neat things to us when they say their good-byes and leave... that is really a great feeling... that somehow we have accomplished our goals... giving people a really good experience... a chance to kick back a little and enjoy being pampered a bit. As great as those nice things they verbalize are... it still truly amazes me that so many folks take the extra time to write nice things in our guest books.

Strangely enough... since we are in the hospitality business... these things oft times are about our level of hospitality... :) ... the great breakfasts they get... the great conversations... and the laughs.

Hope you enjoy reading them as much as we have.....smiley
