We visited with family who had previously stayed with John and Marian and we all received a warm welcome. I loved their style (simple, in-keeping with surroundings and the rooms were lined with bookshelves) and the delicious food they cooked us. They are the sort of hosts you want to hang out and chat with - very knowledgable about the...
