Some Guest Comments at The
"We are an English couple who visited the States
recently and we had the great good fortune to stay a few days with friends at the
Farmhouse during our visit. Michael and Ron are two of the kindest and most generous
hearted people you could hope to meet and the Farmhouse is a dream in beautiful
surroundings. And they certainly do go the extra mile to make it a stay to
remember. We had the best time and will definitely be back." - Ian
"Have not enjoyed a stay so
much in the 10 years we have been in the USA . The Farmhouse is immaculate, very
tastefully furnished and lacks nothing, right down to a wide choice of expensive
toiletries. The waterfront is wonderful and we were sad to leave after such a relaxing and
enjoyable weekend. Michael and Ron certainly go beyond the call of duty to make
guests welcome and pampered." - Gary L.
"What a lovely
piece of heaven. Total relaxation while surrounded by beauty. Ron and Michael are
the most gracious hosts and they go well above and beyond. We totally felt at home.
Considering that our ages varied from 4 to 40 something, that was quite an achievement.
The Farmhouse is very comfortable, spacious and clean. Leaving was not easy
and we cant wait to return!" - Ingrid L.
"We had a great
and comfortable stay at the Farmhouse this weekend and I want to thank you for taking a
good care of us. It's a nice and clean house where one can find everything needed to
enjoy the vacation. We hope to see you again sometime soon. Thanks." -
