Response from Marcia:

Hi Emily, Sorry I didn't get to meet you and Adam and HEART. I saw Heart out the window yesterday. What a beautiful dog. Thank you for leaving the NEST so clean. It's nice having hypo-allergenic dog breeds. There was no fur or hair anywhere, and HEART was very quiet (unlike our dogs). Hope you come back and I get to meet you next time. Thanks for being perfect guests. Marcia

Response from Marcia:

Hi Shawnee, Thanks so much for your stay and your review. Yes, the water heater collects sediment from our hard water on the inside, and because it's stainless on the outside once people handle it, it gets fingerprints, etc. but we always clean it between guests, and we do our best to remove the sediment from the inside, but it's not dirt, it's just the salts from our water. We replace it frequently too because of that. Glad you enjoyed and hope you return. Thanks, Marcia & Andy

Response from Marcia:

Thanks Jennifer, and thank you for leaving a bit of your creativity on the refrigerator. I love the way you arranged the magnetic poetry. We're really glad you got what you came for. Your cats are beautiful. Sorry I didn't get a picture of R. My sister, who has a Maine Coon, kept asking me about him. If you happen to have one, would you email it so I can show her that I was not telling a tall tale (or tail)? Thanks, Marcia & Andy
