"It felt like a privilege to occupy for a short time this place that has such a long history. The historical details-such as the nail-studded doors, the latches and locks, captured my imagination and curiosity. I walked the trail in the woods both days, and that too was an experience of pleasure and discovery. Our party of five found your home to be relaxing, a sensual feast, and a step back in time."
