Jan was very responsive to my questions and making check-in arrangements. She is also a great cook and delighted us with her own fresh asparagus for breakfast! The house is very clean, comfortable and we felt right at home. A wonderful and generous host!

Thank you for your kind words and fantastic review. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Also, thank you for letting me know about your food allergies. I learned a lot as I looked for recipes that would be appropriate for you and now I have those to add to my collection. The sweet potato and sausage hash may become a regular on the menu.

Jim, thank you for your kind words. We love it when visitors have a good time and enjoy what this area has to offer. I'm hoping that Layne's hearing aid will show up when he unpacks. We hope you'll come back to stay with us again.
