Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you Sophia! We had a great stay!
Finally saw a volcano and some other local attractions, however, we really found that there's little reason to leave this paradise. Wishing we had more time to enjoy the local flavors right outside the front door. Our first trip here will not be forgotten. Hopefully, we can return again one day!
Mahalo! JB & Len
PS Sophia - we hope you will come & explore Yellowstone with us!
