Guestbook comments from the owner
I just wanted to write to thank you so much for all you did to make our stay so enjoyable and relaxing. Traveling to Texas for my surgery with my entire family in tow was a stressful adventure, to be sure! But from the moment we drove through those gates, I had a sense of calm that stayed with me the whole time we were there. From the cookies on the table greeting us on the first day, to the impromptu pony rides in the yard for the girls, , you did so much to make us feel not just welcome but so well cared for.
One day as I was walking along the road on my way out to greet the horses, I was struck by the beauty and serenity of my surroundings -- the sun felt so warm on my face as I looked across the beautiful cloudless sky to the pastures, the horses, and beyond. It was at that moment I had to remind myself of something: this is an experience I was having because of my cancer.
Sometimes life has a funny way of delivering its gifts. But however we came to meet you and visit your beautiful ranch, it is an experience I will cherish forever. The experiences my kids had were so unique for them, and I know they will all have fond memories of our special Texas trip. I am so grateful to you for all you did to make our stay even more special.
I hope you were happy with how we left the place, and that we will be welcome to stay at your beautiful home again in the future!
