"Between the host/hostess, accommodations, the food and fine little touches, I could not have asked for a more perfect stay. Even my cousin came to have breakfast and commented on the pristineness of the house. Absolutely beautiful and comfortable. The ironed sheets were so soft and cozy, I challenge anyone who can stay up at night reading. I will be back and I hope you will too. However, you better be prepared to guard your homemade muffin if I make it to the table before you do."
Nancy from Houston, TX

"Ernie and Sylvia, What a terrific place! Yes, a beautiful home-but it is the human touch that makes all the difference--and you and Ernie are special! It has made what sometimes can be a mundane visit colorful, delicious and friendly. Your company and kindness are very special and welcoming. I am also glad you had a chance to meet our daughter, Stephanie. She will try to stop by and see you when she can. As I said, she takes the bus this way to volunteer at the middle school on Tuesday and Friday afternoons. And I'm sure she'd be glad to introduce Ernie to the campus. I know that being here would be unique, after calling and calling and ending up here...See yaw soon again."

"We have had such an incredible time here, you are such hospitable people. We have felt so comfortable and very, very, very well taken care of. This has been the best breakfast we have ever had at a B & B -- you did an awesome job, honestly. Thank you for letting us do our laundry when we had run out of clean clothes to wear. It was such a delight meeting your family, and we would definitely love to come back. You are such hardworking people, May this New Year bring many more people to be blessed by your great hospitality."
