“Thank you for all your hospitality during my stay. This was my first experience at a B & B facility and I was amazed at the “at home” feeling. Days were exciting as I experienced all the animals…the farming experience is one that will not be forgotten. The peaceful evenings provided a comfortable, safe feeling as I sank into deep, restful sleep…”
