Comments from Guestbook : Nov. 2008
Thank you so much for sharing your cabin with us. We really loved everything. Our eight year old granddaughters loved playing all the games. Wonderful quality time spent together, such an enjoyable time and a nice change from our busy, fast paced life at home. We visited the Liquidation Station & enjoyed searching for gems. We gathered pine & holly twigs to make a beautiful holiday wreath for our home. Our granddaughter enjoyed the front porch swing. We all truly enjoyed our visit at your cabin in the forest. Sincerely, Tami, Richard, Karina & Sara
