Hello John et al:

Just wanted to drop you a note to thank you again for your hospitality – we had a wonderful, rejuvenating time at Irish Mountain! You have a gift for looking after the details, and that is part of what made our stay there so enjoyable. We loved the scenery and the view with a blanket of snow, but have a real hankering to see it all in full summer glory – we’ll be back!

Thank-you again,

Rick and Marjorie

p.s. I keep thinking about that mushroom cap hiding under the egg at breakfast – now everyone else’s eggs benedict will just seem incomplete somehow!!
