I had another wonderful experience here in June of this year. I had stayed here before for a family wedding but did not have the address. My daughter who made the first reservation sent me the information. It is long overdue, but I felt that it was important to let travelers know what a friendly environment they will be missing if they choose a hotel. James and Leo are still great hosts, and take the steps to insure you have everything you need, yet let you have so many personal privileges in the house as if it were yours. We had two rooms in the front of the house that felt as comfortable and private as before. I was so busy on my last trip that I took that part for granted! There was a couple in one of the other rooms that had breakfast much earlier than us that we only saw each other in passing. They were very nice, but that is how big this house felt to us all! I will always remember the thoughtfulness and little touch's that these two pros use to make all guests feel at home and even eat when they want! The kitchen is open 24/7 and breakfast can be chosen. Who else does that, without a room service fee? They certainly have broken the mold on the Bed and Breakfast experience-hands down. I really do feel welcome here, and feel that I can speak for my family as well. We will be back for sure and maybe have time to take that excursion to Leon, Guanawato(?) that you mentioned was the city to purchase leather. Thanks again for making travel fun again. First impressions really do make a difference, and your smiles brought that comfort right back from the time we entered your lovely home. We look forward to our next visit!
