Guest Book

Some of the greatest rewards we receive from what "we do" behind the scenes prior to our guests arrival, as well as during their visit, bring in fantastic comments in our Guest Books.  As much as we cherish our memories, as well as those relationships with our guests, while reading them.........we would like to share some of those comments with you.

We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

..."The home was so comfortable (The Royal).  It's unbelievable you didn't miss a detail....right down to the step stool for my daughters bathroom.  Thank you!  Janice (their chef) was an absolute pleasure, and one of the best parts of our vacation"... - L. Drayson, United Kingdom
..."I cannot believe that you actually put up a decorated Christmas Tree for're going to make me cry.  Trust me, I'm telling everyone about you (your company)"... - D. Seeburger, Chicago
... "What a great house! We started off the week with a bit of rain but found plenty to entertain ourselves with indoors, especially with the pool table. As the sun came out we enjoyed lounging on the deck, dipping our toes in the lake and even paddling the boat! We came all the way from California to celebrate Grandpa's 75th and everyone had a blast! Thank you for everything. P.S. The dog had the most fun swimming"... -The Schieferstein Family

"Everything about the home more than met our needs. Loved the views! It accommodated our family and guests. The staff was very cheer full and helpful and accommodated our late check out. Thank you!"... - Purrazo Family
