"Thank you again for a wonderful(although short) stay at your lovely Inn. You were both just too nice and accommodating: Suite#4 was fabulous and the breakfast absolutely delicious! I cannot imagine where you find the time to open your home, cook and bake amazingly; and make everyone feel welcome, but please be assured that all your efforts were very appreciated! I hope that I get to revisit Hartford at a warmer time and enjoy the lovely view out of the "Garden Suite Window"!
