Guestbook comments from the owner
When all ten relatives converge here for graduation -- Aunts, Uncles, and Mom and Dad -- found such a wonderful place to relax and have family discussions and just plain catch up time with the family.... We had perfect weather, barbeques, bonfires, toasting marshmallows. My daughter was commissioned into the Army -- Second Lieutenant, then graduation --WOW. The house was perfect for our guests, plenty of room, movies, bathrooms, and the grounds were great and relaxing. ...Our last night it rained and we had a beautiful rainbow.
