"I came to this area for work, really not keen on booking yet another hotel by the freeway. I did some research on the web and came up with this address. This log cottage in beautifully restored. I enjoyed thoroughly its charm, and all the objects, furniture and paintings. The quietness in the evening, the fresh air, were exactly what I needed. And then I met Peg in the morning with her two baskets loaded for a very tasteful breakfast that could have fed three. My regrets are not to have enough time to take advantage of this farm, to get to know Peg a little more,and want to share this wonderful experience with my wife Jackie. I hope our trails will bring us back here! M.,
"My wife ... and I just celebrated our first anniversary, which gave us occasion to think back on our wedding and how wonderful our stay was at Pleasant Springs Farm. Remembering the peace we found in the cottage, the splendid breakfasts you made for us, the wonderful ride on the canal we took on the bicycles you loaned us, and the lovely wool hat we bought from you and your sheep (I assume you give them a cut of the profits) made us feel very sweet and warm. They are truly great memories for us and we have you to thank!" L&AT, Vallejo CA
