Comments from previous visitors:

“Where do we begin? With the tiny lights and cozy beds that welcomed us at 4 a.m. after a long trip from the West Coast? Or maybe it started with the wonderfully stocked refrigerator for our breakfast and linen closet for our showers?  Whatever, our visit here for our son’s Kenyon graduation was kind, comfortable, memorable.  Your place rocks!  Great sleeps in all 3 bedrooms, great conversation in the living room, and great access to all Mount Vernon delights — you were right, Fiesta does have great margaritas!!  Thank you so much for such a warm place during such an emotional transitional time for our family.  Hopefully this can be a place enjoyed by families for years to come.” -Bill P. (Fresno, CA)
