“My experience was incredible at Beth's beautiful home. She has thought of everything and her gardens are outstanding. I utilized them daily in one fashion or another. I bought a bike and ventured out in the lovely town of Monticello. Although this was a work trip, it felt like a wonderful and relaxing vacation. I fully intent to stay in contact with Beth...she made me feel so happy and comfortable. No question about it, I'll definitely stay here on my next visit. I was so sad to leave this lovely place.”

“Bruce and Debbie are the most welcoming and hospitable host that you can imagine. I don't even know where to start with this experience since everything was beyond my expectations! To begin with, it is a quiet little garden unit perfect for reflection and writing. There is this cute little writing desk where I write a lot. The location is perfect for daily exercises or hikes with the parks and nature reserves within 15 minutes drive. A lot of the furnitures are really unique because they are handmade by Debbie with so much creativity! They are very creative with the whole place and decelerations too. I was so surprised and touched by the real flowers. And she would change the flowers too if you are staying over a week. Debbie is also extremely caring with the services they provide, daily housekeeping and fruits cut into pieces. There are also handmade cheese platers and selected drinks. I really appreciated the stay and a private tour for the cute little town with its architectures! Look no further if you are trying to find a place to stay in Decatur.”
