Our hostess has a beautiful house, a fine facility, and the food was excellent, but what put our visit "over the top" was the extraordinary attention the hostess paid to our purpose for the visit--family history. She went to great lengths to introduce us to knowledgeable people in the town. We even were invited to visit their homes! Needless to say it was a most enjoyable visit in a beautiful setting--and we accomplished a great deal in our quest for family history, as well.
