“I want to thank you for allowing us to stay at your slice of heaven.It was truly a unique experience and one that we both cherished.You have created a magical world on your hillside. I hope to be able to visit again.”                                                             


“The first big adventure of our trip was accessing and then assessing our cabin which was nestled up the mountain side in the canyon. Built at the top of a 250 foot switch back trail, we hiked with our luggage tugged along in a four-wheeled cart designed for a bag of groceries, not a body-bag of a duffle and three other bags. Once up top the climb proved totally worth it as our place was a Shangri-la of 1960s cheer, a rainbow factory of whimsy.

Thank you for sharing your home with us. We hope to cross paths many times again.”
