We booked three rooms on short notice so that 10 of us -- ranging in age from 73 years to 4 months -- could come to Rochester from Virginia, Vermont and California to attend a dear relative's memorial service and be together for two rare days of shared sadness but also important quality time. Cindy and Lou were marvelous to our entire family, showing little touches of thoughtfulness throughout our time together. When Lou learned that our grandson was studying Suzuki violin, he took time to talk with him about his own musical career and to show him a violin he was in the process of repairing. The breakfasts were outstanding, and Cindy prepared special things for the 3 and 5 years olds. We've lost most of our Rochester-based family (my husband grew up there), but we will return and will definitely visit the Rose Garden B&B again!
