Showed us the available rooms, explained the pros and cons of each, delighted us with his stories about the beautiful ornaments... More

This little gem is a well kept secret. If you didn't know it just past the what looks like the end of the road (to those of us who don't know the town). The pictures understate Andrews welcoming home. It is so close to town, and yet, in a beautiful world of its own. Susan
