Some comments from our guests:

"Thank you so much for a fantastic stay at such a beautiful property … we'll be back next year … all of the "extras" you've added were much appreciated. We were surprised at how well the kitchen was stocked with cooking items, plates, glasses, etc; it makes such a difference … Overall, we've never stayed at a vacation home that had so much to do! Thank you very much!!"
AOL Marketing Team, Oklahoma City, OK.

“Our second summer here; many great improvements. Had lots of towels, soap; kitchen was much better. Will be back every year! Enjoyed the new karaoke machine… see ‘ya next year!”
Class of ’75, El Reno, OK.

“Great time – much better than last year! We appreciate the effort and improvements of the new owner.”
