Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Shawn and Kelly,
I received your note and our deposit check last week. Thanks for getting that to us so promptly!
We had the most phenomenal trip to Kentucky, thanks in large part to your beautiful home and your care and concern for our comfort. It was such a blessing to have such kind and thoughtful people to rent from. Your personal touch was truly appreciated. Your home was beyond our expectations, and was absolutely perfect for the purpose of our being there. People came and went all week, and the beautiful views and decks provided space for folks to spread out and visit. For my Dad, it was probably the most memorable trip he’s ever taken. Knowing his time is limited, and having the opportunity to see so many people he loves and cares about could not have been more momentous. It was very special for both my Dad and my Mom.
Thank you for the picture of your family. What a beautiful family indeed!! I know you all look forward to making memories as a family, and I can tell you, from personal experience, that those memories will be cherished by you, Kelly, AND your children for as long as you live. God is good, and we can find blessings in our lives, no matter what hardships we have to face.
God bless you and your family, and I look forward to hearing from you in the future!
