We think our guests are as nice as...

...the wonderful notes they leave  in the guest books. It's been a while since we've shared our love notes, they are what keep us going after a long day. We think our guests are pretty special and when they leave us reviews on sites like Tripadvisor and Facebook, we love it. And while we may not be listed on those sites as the number one inn in the Grand Valley (yet), when they take the time to write us a handwritten note in our guestbook, it means more than all of that! Here is a sampling of some entries we've had during the slow season. Please allow us to toot our own horn...

Thanks again for an amazing weekend. Coming to Willow Pond is like coming home. Each time is a new experience with old friends. Breakfast was awesome, the conversation and stories so much fun. We will see you in August for Peach Festival and in October for "Tour of the Moon". Please don't change a thing. - Lakewood, CO

Thank you so much for your hospitality and making the Grand Junction part of our vacation so relaxing and refreshing. All of the food was delicious and we really enjoyed all of David's stories over breakfast. The suggestion to visit the Farmer's Market was really excellent, too. We definitely plan to be back! J&C

Next time we'll stay longer-This short visit, however, was just what we needed. Thank you for providing such a nourishing experience. All you need is LOVE! (Anon.)

Thanks to Laurie for the best omelets and pancakes ever, and Dave for the impromptu discussion on photography, which I appreciated very much and immediately put to use during our visit to Colorado National Monument later that day.
