Thank you, Cathy and Chris, for the wonderful stay— I’m sad that this was a rather short visit and I probably was not able to fully take in all the wonderful details of your lovely B&B in full. I do thank you for providing a relaxed environment and hope to visit again in the future.

Now I understand why the reviews were so glowing on TripAdvisor. You are so good at what you do and your home is so lovely!

Thank you

We took off most of the month

Flew out to Kauai to visit our eldest son, Collin and Kirsten, Harper and Paxton.  It was the boys’ Spring break and we had a ton of time with them

A lovely home surrounded by stately trees & lush vegetation and a delicious breakfast adds up to just about perfect.

Thank you!

Your adaptable, incredible generosity in accommodating our family graduation celebration made it

unbelievably special.

Thank you for making our daughter’s graduation such a memorable family gathering! We really appreciate

how much you went above and beyond for us.

Thanks for helping make this such a memorable weekend! I told Cathy she is like a swan—calm and serene

on the surface and paddling like hell underneath!

Thank you for a lovely stay—the room was very comfortable and the breakfasts were tip top.  The many extra

You provided the local means to have a special, important, vital August 22 day. Staying here provided a

comfort and friendly home port for today’s precious times.

Starting to lose track of how many times I’ve stayed here now!  Each has been peaceful, relaxing, & wonderful.

This visit was no exception.  Thank you once again for providing a quiet oasis at the end of my travel season.

We sure enjoyed our trip to Swarthmore and staying at the Purcell Darrell House was a great part of it.

Our usual hosts are so popular there was no room at their place—thank goodness there was room here!

It’s tough work chasing this ball
