As you can see from all the comments below, Jim and Verda ooze hospitality and kindness. Very down to earth and good hearted people. Jim went out of his way to provide pre- stay advice and booked me onto the best Canyon tour in town. But I kind of expect this from good US B&Bs.. it is partly this and meeting real people from the country that I choose to pay extra and stay..
.. but I also expect better quality accommodations than I got here. I slept fine and the shared bathroom was Ok as it was mostly only me.. but my room was small (even for one... ) over filled with nick- naks..and too much furniture and really really dusty ... That I was not so pleased about. Furthermore my room was not serviced for my two nights stay, the bed was left unmade and the bin was not emptied. This again I found at odds with my experiences of B&Bs... It sort of gave me the impression that the hosts, though very kind... didn't really bother much about caring for their visitors in these other ways. My advice to Jim and Verda is to just reflect on these comments and try and develop this element it would really make a difference. ( I see other reviews also mention this)
Another problem ( which is no fault of the hosts) is that people get up really early (5.30 am) to catch the boat rides..so rooms above and to the side of me ( and the bathroom, next door to me) all were busy..which meant an early wake up for me too.
So a bit of a dichotomy here, I liked meeting the people...but I was pleased to leave that room behind!!!
