"My husband and I have nothing but gratitude and thanks for you and your entire staff for the hospitality extended to us this past weekend.  We loved the Manor!  We felt at home the moment we arrived.  Everyone was gracious in whatever task they performed on our behalf.  As this was my husband's first outing in well over a year, he was very happy to sit in front of a fire with a book and just enjoy relaxing while I enjoyed my cooking class with Executive Chef.  Wow! This far exceeded what I had imagined it would be.  I learned so many things throughout both days and the. To enjoy his company with my husband and I at lunch was wonderful and we had a few good laughs as well.  If I get the opportunity to do this again, I would do it in a heartbeat.  You can be sure that your Inn will be talked up by both of us to anyone who will listen.

We wish you all the success possible as you continue to welcome people from all over the world.  Your generosity to us in accommodating our changed plans will never be forgotten and was greatly appreciated. Thank you."   C&A
