Sorry! I was responding to someone else. They have already deleted their response. Sorry for the confusion.

They use this B&B for business contacts. And I can assure you, they are not selling us a timeshare. Mr_Geek be careful with assumptions! Yours are so far off base, but thank you for your comments anyway.

Thank you for responding. Our decision will be based on the offer. This would be a big decision for us since it would involve moving out of state.

I didn't think we needed to reciprocate but since my husband was pushing the issue, I decided to come on here so he could see the responses. He read them earlier and feels satisfied with the responses.

good luck with your decision! A number of us have made numerous out of state moves (i'm coming up on #5) so let us know if you have questions with that as well.. Never fun in the planning but at least you get some great experiences!
