Village Victorian Guest Book

Sound Bytes from our Guest Books 

Our guests say so many neat things to us when they say their good-byes. As great as those nice things are that they verbalize, it still truly amazes me that so many folks take the extra time to write nice things in our guest books. Since we are in the hospitality business, these things  are often about our level of hospitality, the great breakfasts they get, the great conversations... and the laughs.
