From our guestbook
"My new wife and I did not have a clue where we were going, and I was not sure of what we would find...but I took a gamble after seeing your website and after communicating with Zee Anne. She was so nice and helpful that I figured it was worth a shot. But we had no idea... We left Spring House Farm on Wednesday, December 27 (and it was hard to) totally wooed and blown away by the time we spent there. We could not have asked for a better place or time anywhere. You were so hospitable and friendly, it was like a dream - it is hard to find souls that are as nice as you were - and even on your Christmas holiday! You went out of your way to treat us wonderfully and it really meant alot to us, and to such a special time in our lives. We will always treasure it and pray God's blessings on your house and your business. We would certainly like to make it back up again, and hopefully we will. Thank you again for all of the special treatments and little touches that make your place so special."

"As two people stayed here, two things were realized. One is the love we share can grow and become indescribable. Two is the simple things in life is what makes life worth living.

"The perfect wedding, followed by the perfect honeymoon. First snow of the season on the 19th - Great Jacuzzi weather! Looking forward to future anniversary visits. Many thanks to our wonderful hosts."
"Thank you for this weekend. You have built one of the most beautiful places we believe we've ever dreamed of. We hope to be back year after year."
"We came here for a weekend getaway from children, work, and etc. It worked! This was GREAT! Peace & quiet, enjoyed God's beautiful creation! Just 'us' time was wonderful. This cabin was very private and our hosts are awesome. Thanks and we'll see you soon."
"I never knew darkness could be so dark and quiet could be so very quiet. What a wonderful place to reconnect with the one you love. We have only each other as a distraction - how simple our lives could be. Thank you for a memorable 18th wedding anniversary, and what a treasure this memory will be."
"To find a place like this in this day and age is rare and wonderful. From the way you've preserved the land to the privacy and amenities of the cottages and to the graciousness of the host and hostess, you've done it all! We had a truly relaxing time away from the normal stresses in our lives and for this we thank you. Our experience brought to mind a poem by Henry David Thoreau or some such poet:"
"I wen to the woods to live deliberately
To such the marrow of life.
To route away all that was not life,
And not when it came time to die
Discover I have not truly lived."
"Thanks again and continued success and good fortune to you."
From a greeting card:
"I can't believe I forgot to make an entry in the journal before we left! The week we spent in the Compleat Angler was so relaxing. The perfect place to find ourselves again. Everything from the home-made preserves to the trout pond was perfect. Our spirits and souls were re-united and rejuvenated by the peace and quiet. Thank you for creating and sharing this wonderful place! We are so thankful for finding it and such good friends."
~ The Teeguardens, Greenfield Indiana
