The quality of hospitality is probably the single most important factor, and memory, for most of our B&B guests. We hope these hospitality testimonials taken from our guest books give an indication of what to expect.
Without question the most treasured vacation experience of our lives. You made us feel very comfortable and welcome. Your morning spread around a beautifully set dining room was the perfect way to begin our day. Michelle & JJ, Portland, OR.
Dear Linda and Martin, If anyone wrote the book on creating and running the most fabulous B+B it was you two! Your attention to each individual guest is wonderful. Fond Aloha! Linda & Scott, Mauii, Hawaii.
We had a wonderful time with the both of you! Your home and gardens are stunning. We love the European style. And your cuisine was really first rate. But what really makes a B and B special is the warmth of the hosts, and you both made us feel so welcome! We would love to return some day! Vanessa & Greg, Tucson, AZ. July 2012.
A week just didn't seem long enough. We loved having dinner on the patio & thank you SO MUCH for helping us cook our catch. Heather & John, West Vally, UT.

We had a wonderful time at your home – you both do an excellent job of hosting. We went to a total of four different place for lodging during our visit to the Pacific Northwest – three B & Bs and then the Hilton in Seattle – and you exceeded all of those with your amenities, location, hospitality, food and cleanliness. Kathy & Warren, Galena, IL (innkeepers).
You were always willing to help in any way you could. I really enjoyed Linda's chats in the morning. Martin's humor is still making me smile! Jen, Salem, OR.
We don't want to leave! The hospitality met and exceeded our expectations. The food was great. We were so impressed with the attention to detail. Jeff & Lani, Vancouver, WA.
Neal and I want to thank you for a memorable visit to your country. The food was excellent, the Camelot was wonderful, but the host and hostess really made the whole experience a wonderful one for us. We have recommended you to several people whom we know. Cheryl, Greelea, CO.
Travel is all about the people you meet & you are two of God’s best. Thank you for a wonderful experience. Suzanne, San Diego, VA.
We are especially appreciative of your helpful local advice and excellent maps. Lynne & Allan, New Zealand.
Thank you very much for your hospitality. It was the best! We felt like in paradise. Hayah & Moshe, Israel.
Thank you for bringing so much beauty to this weekend. Your beautiful home & marvellous breakfasts are exceeded only by your graciousness & generosity. Sondra, Nampa, ID.
We really appreciate the thoughtfulness of Linda & Martin’s planning & preparation. We love the fact that whatever we need is there. Jason & Suzanne, San Diego, CA.
Linda and Martin at the Gazebo were hosts beyond description. They assisted us when our reservations at another facility were cancelled due to tragic circumstances. Not often when you find folks who are willing to help out their friends in need - the other facility. Their home is a historic treasure, the food was better than delicious and the hospitality was extraordinary. We had a wonderful stay. Honestly cannot give the Gazebo a better recommendation. The good LORD willing, we will return soon. Keith and Renee, Utah.
