One of the most rewarding and surprising aspects of inn-keeping are the LETTERS from past guests.

During the course of 15 years of inn-keeping, we have received thousands of unsolicited personally written "thank you" letters from happy guests who have had memorable stays. Here are just a few of the comments from our scrap book.

"Just wanted to let you know again how much we (Gene & Jean B) enjoyed our stay at your Inn last weekend and your new addition. Everything was wonderful -- I love your style and all the finishing touches. You have thought of everything and it really shows.
