"Robin and I had a wonderful time staying in your vacation rental. Your organic farm is an inspiration and appreciated the eggs. We enjoyed a great meal at nearby Lake's End restaurant. We sat on their deck and watched the sun go down across the lake while having a wonderful meal. We will be back soon and bring friends." -Danny, Marietta, Georgia
