Vivien was the most gracious host we have encountered. We take several trips a year either thru trip advisor or vrbo and this was the best. sitting on 6 beautiful acres loaded with more Aspens and all sorts of varieties of trees and other plant life. Rabbits, blackbirds, magpies (beautiful), owls, morning doves and more. It is a veritable cacophony of sound, especially in the morning. Beautiful sunsets and sunrises, storms rolling in and lightening against the backdrop of the mountains. I could go on and on but in a word, well maybe more, we will definitely be back. The whole experience was relaxing and exhilarating. you need to go. it will peel layers of stress off you.

Dearest Ralph and Ruth,

Thank you so much new friends!! You are both such beautiful people and you took exquisite care of the home and the surroundings and I say a little prayer you can come back again! I'm so glad you understood that the space is essentially a healing retreat a place where we can and want to listen to and watch the surrounding life, without being advertised as such, its a place to make a connection and destress, one that often evades us in everyday life. You two are very sweet, charming, friendly, warm and I am very fortunate to have had you here and to be able to spend some time with you. I'm sure hoping that you know you're always in my heart and welcome on this land as long as I have it.

Peace to both of you,
