    My husband and I stayed with Melva and Hilton for 4 days and can not say enough about the accommodations, food and hospitality. We arrived as strangers and left as friends. The food is amazing. They were very helpful in explaining the area. Melva showed me her fantastic garden and Hilton was explaining all about his boat building. Hope to see you soon. Thanks for everything.
