This was our 9th anniversary get away and ended up being far more than we had ever anticipated.
Your cooking is fantastic!! And your wolves (wolf sanctuary) were absolutely amazing. They are such an intriguing animal.

Thank you for everything. We had a wonderful (not even a good enough word to describe) stay.
