Thank you for your great guest review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and got to check our our new disabled access, private suite (guest room #5). We have had the new guest room open for a few weeks and the comments have been very favorable. In our new studio we plan to offer stained glass art classes and to bring in celebrity artists to teach. I hope you will get a chance to join one of our classes this winter and come and stay with us again. Regards, Mike
