We celebrated our 10th wedding
anniversary here in the cottage last year
and here we are back again for our 11th.
The most relaxing weekend of our year!
After both our daughters weddings, one in
April and one last weekend, our stay here
was everything we needed.
We are rejunivated and ready to head back to
reality. This storybook getaway is
something we have looked forward to for
and since we are just down the road it's
nice not to have to travel so far to enjoy
such comfort. I really enjoyed the
weather, what a great summer we've had.
The small storm that passed through early
Saturday was just what we needed to cool the
temperature down. The cool breeze is
so perfect for the Hot Tubbin.
thank you again for sharing your slice of
paradise with us. We are already
planning our next stay. Oh-and I LOVE
all the remodeled and the new couch.
Until Next time

Thank you for such a lovely & relaxing

loved sitting on the swing & sitting on the
deck. Lots of wildlife. Love the
hummingbirds & the kitties. Saw a
jackrabbit this morning. And last
night was so magical outside in the hot tub
with all the lights. Beautiful.
We cannot wait to come again & would love to
stay in the new cottage. It was
beautiful. We feel relaxed & refreshed
thanks to you and God bless!
Neal & Sandy
We knew it was going to be beautiful but
when we pulled up we were overwhelmed.

honestly was meeting you both and getting to
visit with yall. We will be back soon.
Hopefully on a permanent basis.
Looking forward to coming back for relaxing
conversations with you Linda. Maybe
coffee on the porch. Love you both so

2 Pages ago someone wrote about
pre-surgical relaxation. I guess for
us it's post- surgical - myself, my daughter
and even the dog!
Got stuck in traffic on Friday and didn't
get in the until 8:15. We drove up to
the cottage w/ it's lit up grounds & trees.
Walked into the cottage to meditation music,
fireplace lit & soft lighting and a bed to
sink into! We knew we were home for
MY personal favorite is waking to the view
of the hills & cows! The moo-ing and
the rooster crowing, soft breezes and the
coolness of the porch are perfect.
My girls enjoyed the hot tub after a day on
main street. Yesterday and I enjoyed
my nap. My dog enjoyed her towel,
snacks and nap too.
Thank you for the eggs, fridge food, and
caring you put into this weekend for us.
Angela, Lindsay & Monica
Well guys you did it again. Thank
you for sharing your cottage with us.
After 5 days of business seminars it was

*25th Wedding Anniversary**
After our first visit in February of this

money to give us a weekend stay here at the
Comfort Getaway to mark 25th years together.
It was the most wonderful gift we could have
Linda brought us flowers to commentate the
occasion and our little dog Xena enjoyed the
special puppy treats left for her. We
visited the Black Pig down the street for

great too! Hope to be back soon!
Jessica & Garren
We were planning our honeymoon and when we
found your cabin we knew that this is where
we wanted to go. The cabin is perfect,
especially with all the added details.
Around every corner there is another small
detail that adds to the experience. We
were supposed to stay in the smaller cabin
but since it was not ready due to the
remodel Linda & Jessie were kind enough to
let us stay in this larger cabin. This
property and cabin made for a perfect
honeymoon. The view is great and the
animals on the property make a nice
addition. Thank you'll for allowing us
the opportunity to stay in this cabin.
It has been a Blessing

enjoyed staying in your "place in heaven"
but after reading everyone else's
appreciation for your accomodations, I found
it hard to add to their comments. But

local attractions. didn't make it to
any of them! Just enjoyed this
beautiful setting and what ya'll have done.

This was a magical time for my husband and
I. Thank you for creating this
beautiful place for people like ourselves to
enjoy. Every detail of this place so
very well thought of. My husband and I
have been working very hard and very
long hours these past couple months.
This was exactly what we needed in
time to step away from all the noise and all
of the distractions and focus on each other.
We've created some beautiful memories.
We've laughed, very hard and we've probably
more wine than we should have :)But none the
less we took advantage of the "carep diem"
sign We made it a priority to seize
every moment given to us during our stay!
Thank you. We WILL be back!
Jesse & Dianan
You have created a magical place.
All you little extras are very special.
All the best

April 9, 2016
Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in
this beautiful "Hideaway". We spent hours on
the deck "seizing the moment" and the views.
The view over the valley is beautiful.
We had been going through a trying time with
a family member that last few months. It had
all taken a toll on our emotions. Your
home allowed us the time to reconnect with
each other and ourselves. We "Carpe
Diem"! We love the time we spent
together. It was so peaceful here.
Thank you for all the details, special
touches and notes. It was wonderful.
We are looking forward to our next trip.
P.S, The bed was awesome. Also now I
know not to pack the house on my next visit.
Thanks so much for all the details.
Mitchell & Rosie
By the way the Black Pig was a great place
Our 1st Second Honeymoon! Loved
the special glittered walls in the bathroom
(look closely) Loved the swinging bed and
waking up to the wall of windows. And
hot tubing and going to sleep with the
twinkling trees! We explored the
clubhouse/office in the tees (LOL) Used it
for deer watching .P.s.. We absolutely love
love love the idea of a porch swing for 2
mounted from the bottom of the underside of
the back porch .

Dear Linda & Jessie
We're not sure if we can actually express
our gratitude for your kindness. it
was so overwhelming as soon as we walked in
the door. Our 1 night stay turned in a
3 night stay, and we still feel that there
are things we missed seeing at this
beautiful place. Every corner I turned
there was a new detail that made me feel the
love you both have for this place, and for
your guests. We loved meeting you and
your carrot cake (by far!) beats out any
I've had before. Thank you for
reminding us to reach for our dreams The
reminder could not have come at a better
time for us. We feel like you're
family. Even though words aren't
enough. Thank you with love
