Thanks for the nice review and constructive feedback on the dust on books. I will have our cleaning lady dust the bookcases in the future.
We are continuing to make improvements to the place so it will hopefully be even nicer should your family choose to visit again. We're having the hardwood floors refinished in September so they will return to their original rich honey color.
Now that the house is finally at a pretty good stage my wife and I will be ramping up our marketing of the place, with a new website coming this fall and listings on websites frequented by wedding planners and corporate retreat people. If you know of anyone who wants a place to get married next year, I'd be interested in talking with them. For wall weddings, Willoughby Farm has agreed to make the family's private beach available for September events. It's really lovely down on the water, especially during the peek foliage season. Plus we're going to make the 30 acre meadow just north of my house available for the wedding as well; it has panoramic views of the lake and surrounding mountains.
Please give my regards to your family and let them know how much we appreciated their enjoyment (and care) of Willoughby Lodge!
