From our Guest Book:

“We had big plans to explore Roanoke today but couldn’t bear to leave the house!”

“We really enjoyed looking at every detail of the renovation and I hate to say we turned over rugs and sheets to find labels and details.  Every little detail we know was carefully thought out in your transformation of this house.”

“The days we spent here really felt like home.”

“The whole weekend here at BDS has been one of the best weekends our family has enjoyed.”

“We hope to return soon.  The Grosso family would be proud of what all you have done.”
