    Thank you so much for your hospitality and lovely home.  My mom and I have enjoyed our stay and will recommend your B&B to friends and family.  I thoroughly enjoyed the use of your massage chair (what a great find)!!!  P>S> Your animals are great greeters.

        Tracy and I loved our visit to your beautiful place.  We especially appreciated your personal contact with us, giving us information and tips about the local area.  We also loved the cats, dogs and horses.  Your gardens are so lovely--wish we'd had more time to just linger there!  Thanks very much for your kindness and hospitality

        What a wonderful surprise to find a place as beautiful as it is charming, as grand as it is quaint, and as inviting as the great outdoors it is located in.  I couldn't imagine anything better than coming back time and again to sty here.  This is the best kept secret in NV, but hopefully not for very long!!

        Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality and for sharing this beautiful setting.  I enjoyed the flowers, birds, butterflies and peacefulness f your property and will remember it for future visits to this area.  Had a memorable stay and particularly loved the gliders out by the pond.

            We had a wonderful time this weekend.  It was the perfect end for our wedding yesterday.  The room was great, very cozy.  You have a beautiful house and property and we will absolutely be recommending you to all our friends and family who need a quiet get away close to home.

                                                    San Francisco, California

            A perfect place for us.  All of the benefits of home (including dogs) with no responsibilities.  Being cared for and having a beautiful place to "be."  The food was great as was the comfort of your home.  What an incredible woman you are-we feel blessed to have your acquaintance.

        What a wonderful host and truly the most beautiful place we've ever stayed.  Thank you so much.  We will definitely see you again.  Thanks so much!                                        Lancaster, California

        We enjoyed a very pleasant stay--beautiful gardens and views of horses frolicking in the meadow.  The peacefulness is most refreshing.

                                                        Reno, Nevada

           Thanks for your hospitality and the great breakfast every morning.  Unfortunately our second stay in your house was when we left Nevada to relocate back to Germany, as we liked the area here a lot.  Hopefully we have a chance to stay with you again.  All the best for the future!  

                                                    Minden, Nevada

        Thank you for letting my mom and me stay at your lovely house.  We had a great time.  The breakfasts you made were out-of-this-world, and every single one was delicious.  Your pets are adorable.  We will recommend your B and B to everyone we know.  The view was b-e-a-utiful.                             
                                              Mountain View, California

        Thank you so much for allowing us to use your home for Mona's 60th birthday!  Your back yard worked wonderfully for the "low" tea and the murder mystery dinner was a lot of fun!  We hope you had a good time too!                                  
                                                                           Minden, Nevada

                                                           Placerville, California

        We both enjoyed our visit with you and plan on returning.  It is time for us to depart before we both gain 23 more pounds from eating a "little something" in the morning.  Come on down and we will show you Laguna Beach.
                                          El Dorado Hills, California

        What a nice peaceful oasis you have here.  Your bountiful breakfast made it nearly impossible to part from you patio.  Fortunately Uli brought his bicycle.  This way at least one of us were losing calories.  Thank you so much for the most wonderful stay of our journey.
                                                   Portland, Oregon

        Thank you, we loved being here and really enjoyed the full 2 1/2 weeks.  The breakfast on the patio, the wonderful views, playing with Mika and Cleo, your beautiful home, the horses and last but not least your hospitality made us feel like being home.  For sure we will be back to spend another beautiful vacation with you.

        Thank you for sharing your home with us.  We loved it, it's been the best week end I've had in a long time.  I will tell everyone I know that comes this way that this is the place to be.  We will see you again.  Your cooking was great and you made us feel like family.  Again thank you for everything.
                                                Danville, California

          It's been like visiting the home of an old friend!  Your place is so beautiful and inviting!  You are a great cook as well.  We will certainly miss sitting on your patio and watching your beautiful horses while we have breakfast.  We are so spoiled!  We will happily recommend your B&B and hope to return.  Thank you!
                                              Hercules, California

        Thanks for the hospitality and the wonderful breakfast.  It was certainly a pleasure to have enjoyed the view your home afforded.  And the quiet of the valley.  Not to mention the warm greetings from your puppies.  I hope we will be back soon for a more extended stay.

           Oh my gosh, mere words cannot describe the incredible experience Wade and I have shared!  Thank you so much for opening your doors and home to us.  This was a much needed R&R!  God Bless you and those that surround you.  We're going to miss Cleo and !Mica mi chica!  and especially Charm.  Give them all hugs from us.  Thank you.

                                                         Chico, California

        The place is wonderful.  We enjoyed hearing the horses sound off a bit in the morning and the strawberry patch by the pond was also a big hit!  The Basque restaurant at the Carson Country Club serves up a nice family style meal!  Thanks for a wonderful couple days.  P.S. try Barbara's Eggs Benedict.
                                                            Portland, Oregon

        Facilities were very good.  Rooms very clean.  Barbara is a wonderful host, we would certainly stay again. We would recommend Cottonwood Creek Ranch to friends and associates.  The children thoroughly enjoyed feeding the horses and playing with the dogs.  Thank you for an excellent stay.

.....There are so many enjoyable things to see and do.  To start with, take a walk through the beautiful gardens with the lily ponds and fountains, then to the very large stables to see the horses or take a walk down to the fields...... Someday we may be able to return to see more of your beautiful country down in Carson Valley.  Thank you Barb for your most gracious hospitality, we recommend you anywhere.

        One can not realize the amenities that you have put together without personally experiencing several days at your Bed & Breakfast.  The living quarters, the food, along with the ambience both inside and outside your establishment allow your guests an overall wonderful experience.  Hopefully we will be able again to be your guests in the future.
