hospitality were unsurpassed in our broad experience with B&B’s. We spent many hours marveling at the ever changing view and

interesting and vital conversation – not to mention the relaxing waters of
the hot tub.
We look forward to a return visit in the near future.”

human kind's dream for centuries. Cloud 9 allows one's soul to drift away
into the lakes, mountains, trees, water and clouds. You have created

simplicity combined with nature. Thanks so much."

superb! Thank you so much. With love..."

"John and Pat are wonderful hosts. They are both welcoming and
hospitable. Their home is worth a million dollars but their view is
priceless. All these factors were important in helping us achieve a
very peaceful and relaxing weekend away from two very busy lifestyles.
Thank you so much Pat, John and of course Hamish & Heather (our
four-legged host & hostess).
