We had a wonderful time! We just love your little house and we sure hope to return sometime soon. Thank you for having such a nice, well stocked, clean, beautiful place for us to stay. I hope to get on Trip Advisor and post some great reviews. . .Also, the wireless worked perfect the whole weekend! I got the chance to watch 2 movies (which I never get to do) on the computer through Blockbuster on demand movie rental. All the best to you. I know we will have to book in advance. your place is perfect and it will become sought after!
We have been truly blessed to have such wonderful guests so far--every one of them has treated our property just as they would their own, and some have even offered a couple of good ideas and suggestions which we appreciate. We intend to only get better and better as time goes by, but it sounds like everyone has been immensely pleased and satisfied. You all are welcome back here to stay with us any time!
