My husband and I have always looked at the mountains as a mean to escape from our busy lives. We have stayed in hotels, cabins, and other B&Bs. This was so much more than we could have ever asked for. We received a text the night before our stay from the owners, Callie and Dave. Callie said that they would be at a local restaurant for a concert and we were more than welcome to join them. If not, we were welcome to make ourselves at home upon our arrival. We arrived at night but they had all of the lights on in our suite and outside. We walked in to the lower level, the River Rocks Suite, and immediately thought we had walked in to the owners quarters. It was so spacious and homey! We had brought our two pups and knew that we did not have to worry about having enough room for all of us. With our own balcony, patio swing, entrance, kitchenette and seating area, we had no reason to leave our level if we didn't feel like it. Due to the hospitality of the owners and friendliness of the other guests, that was far from what we did on our weekend get-away. From check in night we had already felt like we were part of there family. We spent the weekend enjoying the beautiful views from the common area porch after eating a fantastic breakfast, walking along the stream inside the gated community, visiting downtown Marshall, and enjoying the company of our new friends. I can truly say we have found our ONLY mountain vacation spot for as long as Callie and Dave (and of course their pup Midge) will have us.
