We came for our Anniversary and we just loved the peacefulness we found. The food was excellent! Your cooks were so sweet and personable! Excellent cooks as well! Loved visiting with Gary at breakfast! We plan on trying to come back with friends and again for our anniversary again. You’ve got a great thing going on! We loved it! – John and Marilyn Lowe, Sherman, IL
Wonderfully romantic! Very kind, friendly, and helpful staff. The food was delicious and beautifully set for creating our romantic time away. Thank you! – Terry and Gayle Green, Erie, IL
Thanks Wanda and Gary for a wonderful time! The horseback riding was definitely one of the highlights for us. However, the hospitality, wonderful food (some of the best we’ve ever had), beautiful quiet setting, and immaculate comfortable rooms were the icing on the cake for our anniversary. The bonfire/smores under the stars was one of the most romantic evenings we’ve had in a while. Finally, having Wanda pray for our meal was truly the highlight! These are memories that we’ll never forget mainly because we will be back to live them again, hopefully soon. We’ll definitely tell everyone we know and hopefully bring our family back too! God bless! – Tony and MaryBeth Peterson
