Our trip was great. The house was lovely, and we particularly enjoyed the gardens and the flowers, and dining outdoors. The kitchen was super, and we cooked lots of terrific meals there with the local produce. Overall, it was a great trip and a really nice property. Also your assistance in planning was really first rate, and we would recommend you to others. Thanks. Brandon F. Boulder CO. May 2013.
