When I am looking for  a place to stay, it is helpful to know what others say about a destination.  This afternoon as I am getting our cottage ready for guests, I noticed our guest books.  Yes, we have two of them.  One is a traditional guest book.  The other is a journal that I put out for guests to draw a picture, share a poem, reflect on an "Ah-Ha" moment, or a quotation.

Here are some of the guest book entries.  Come to the cottage yourself  to read the rest:

"Thanks so  much for the wonderful weekend at your "resort."  Your lodge is elegant and comfortable.  We read a great book together, watched a couple of your DVD's and worked on a puzzle.  The view is beautiful no matter what time of year."  Chris and Marg, Illinois, March, 2008

"Thank you!  This was a wonderful place to have our Thanksgiving gathering...cozy, welcoming, and with a beautiful kitchen for socializing.  We had a great time (and enjoyed a few wonderful dinners) watching the sunsets!"   Marisa and Victor, Seattle, WA, November, 2007

"Thanks for sharing Turning Leaf Cottage....we loved it...may come back when it's not so cool and enjoy your deck and firepit."  Betty, Minnesota, October, 2007

Everything was wonderful-it couldn't have been better than it was.  Thanks for your hospitality. We had a great time, wonderful rest and will have a beautiful memory!  It was the best!!  Mary and Greg, Texas, 2007 

"What a wonderful family vacation we had! The weather was spectular--fishing was fantastic.  We enjoyed playing cards and games at night.  Your home is beautiful.  Thanks for sharing it.  We'd like to come back."  Pat and Paul, Minnesota, 2007
