How wonderful to here "listing was absolutely right on!" It was a genuine please having you, ESPECIALLY for Zoinks! She misses out on active play since I've been sick, so any time playful kids are involved she goes NUTS with pleasure! But Brandon was even more so, and it was written all over her wiggy-wags and belly flops! I'm so happy to have given you that feeling of "home-ness," and welcome you back any time!

How was that dinner, by the way? Fries are fabulous, aren't they? I'm so glad you found lots of activities and felt like you had a nice place to return to once you'd exhausted yourself from the day. That's my mission here at Fern Gully!

I'm so glad you had a good time and enjoy your stay at Fern Gully. Though I usually make myself scarce for the sake of guest privacy, I love it when we interact! Living alone in such a quiet place has its benefits, but being a hermit certainly isn't one of them! I'm always grateful for a little conversation. Thanks for being such fun guests!

I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and felt at home! I do all I can to make my guests know that this is their home while they are here, and I'm just a tenant/concierge. :)
