"Another great visit. You are the best at making people feel welcome. The facilities are the best I have seen in my travels - and you have no peers in managing the facility."

"If I were given the job of rating your B&B, I would score it with 5 stars. The accommodations and service was exceptional. Breakfast was a final highlight to send us on our way."

"We have really enjoyed our stay here. If we were giving grades, you'd get an A+. We've stayed at several B&Bs, and rarely have been disappointed, but we don't pass out A+ easily. Your company is as pleasant as the beautiful and spotless rooms. Thank you for a wonderful experience."

"Never did I find such Southern hospitality as I found in one day with you. Thank you for taking us in and sharing yourselves and your home. Hope to see you again soon."

"Like most military members, we have stayed in facilities around the world. This surfaces as the "best of the best." Nothing like "home away from home." Bonnie and Barry are real professionals at making you feel welcome. Thanks for keeping up a tradition that has almost been forgotten."

"Thank you very much for this wonderful stay here! We really felt like coming to a Southern house with heart-warming hospitality and a delicious breakfast. And we just loved the swing on the porch!"
