We chose to return to Sheperd's Joy after a wonderful experience on our anniversary last year. We went to the barter as we did last year and enjoyed a lovely dinner in town.

Jack and Joyce are the most hospitable and gracious hosts. Their victorian home is beautiful and our room was very nice and clean. Joyce is a fabulous cook and made us a gourmet breakfast that was delicious. We will be back to Sherpards Joy!
