"This was the best scrap booking retreat I have been on. Mary and Jim, were very accommodating. They went out of their way to make our group feel at home. As part of our retreat from the daily decisions as moms they took care of all our meals for the weekend, and they really took care of us. The food was FANTASTIC! It was wonderful to be able to work on our scrapbooking all day and night without worrying about when or what we were going to eat. We were able to leave our materials set up all weekend, and we weren't in anyone's way. I felt relaxed, productive, and completely refreshed when I left the Inn. Our group has already decided to return next year!"
