Absolutely beautiful place! From all of the custom wood trim
to the meticulously cleanliness of the lodge as a whole, we were
beyond pleased with our stay. We desperately needed a long weekend
away from work and this was a great place for it. Thank you so
much for everything! We will definitely be back and will spread
the word of Sojourners Lodge and its surrounding beauty.

Hi Gwen & Duane
Once again a pleasure to stay at Sojourners. Love it. This
is a favorite for us & we got our fix!
The weather was perfect. Temps in the 40s & we hit
52 on Sunday. Of course, we did watch the Iowa caucus on
Fox & that was a treat since we dont have cable.

Celebrated our 2nd anniversary & Valentines Day here
at Sojourners Lodge. This is our 3rd stay here and 2nd
in Suite 102. Everything was exactly the same as our past experiences-
WONDERFUL! The lodge is beautiful and clean. Another cold/snowy
weekend stay! We enjoyed movies and the gas fireplace, visiting
area shops and candlelight dinner Fri. & Sat. evening at
Mrs. Yoders Kitchen in Mt. Hope. Now, back to another year
but we certainly anticipate & look forward
to next February. We will be back! Thank you Gwen for everything
& to your husband for blowing the snow off our vehicle!

We had a chance to cook hot dogs over the pit last night. It
was like going to camp when we were kids. But were old
kids now; still trying to have fun. Loved the outdoors during
our stay. It was beautiful weather and a very nice stay. This
is our 2nd stay at this cabin. Thanks for keeping it clean &

This is our 2nd trip in the past 4 months. We know we have found
our weekend get-a-way and will continue to visit time and time
again. Relaxing by the fire place, listening to the birds sing
both at night & upon waking up has been so relaxing. We are
already planning our next trip to this peaceful, clean, and charming
retreat from our daily routine.

Thank you Gwen for all your help and for the beautiful accommodations!
We spent a lot of time shopping and sightseeing but could have
stayed in our suite the entire time and enjoyed it. Beautiful-Peaceful-Comfortable-Clean!
Dont know that we will get back this way again but if we
do well certainly call you first and try to stay again.
Now off to the D.C. area where well spend much more for

First I need to say thank you to Duane for backing our trailer
in. We could have used you when we first arrived because it really
was comical watching 2 girls back in and out, and in and out,
until after 15 minutes we got it. It wasnt pretty but we
did it! We got this! We love it here. This is our happy
place. We look forward to coming every year and walking
into the cleanest, most wonderful place ever. Thank you for our
little slice of heaven. We will be back next year.
