“Wow! You guys rock! This house and its staff took away the worries of daily living so that my friend and I could focus on her surgery and wellness that followed. The dedication and compassion shown by the guest house staff was greatly appreciated!! Thank you all for expediting my friend’s recovery and taking away my anxiety.” – Left in our guest book on 5/24
