                                                                  Hi Again Patty - Thanks for such a great review. I'm featuring it on our web site. Our home has something special going for it. We raised our family there and it definitely fits!!!!! That seems to be a common compliment in our reviews. Gloria and I strive very hard to make our family home as "just like home"to all our guests. Please consider us your Alaskan friends in South Central, perhaps our paths will cross again! Best to you and your family in the upcoming winter holiday season. Doug and Gloria Stuart
