Dear Jane and John , This was our third trip here. Last year we went on a cruise and wished we were here. It was our 10th anniversary and we had a blast. Thanks for some great fishing and memories. We'll see you next year.
Dear McKays. When we first arrived you asked is there anything we can do to make your stay enjoyable. I just want to say that you and your family already did. Working hard to maintain this peace of heaven is enough. Great place to reconnect with my family and rest. Thank you very much.
We've been coming here for years (since 2000, we think) we love this place- the natural beauty, the river, and all the wildlife. We've seen deer (fawns, bucks and does) bald eagles, hawks, woodpeckers, bears, woodchucks and frogs all along the path- a special place.
Thank you John and Jane for sharing your piece of heaven with us. We've traveled extensively and Sylvania tree farm is one of those spots that stick in your memory. Until next time thanks!
Dear Jane and John, This was our second visit but first stay at the Turtleshell. We had a great time! We loved hiking your beautiful trails, canoeing in the river and enjoying the coziness of this cabin. Thank you so much and I'm sure we'll be back soon. Love it.
No cell phones, internet, TV or news!! Time for reading, resting, walking, handiwork and enjoying the fresh mountain air, sights and smells. Thank you!
What a terrific place to spend our 42nd anniversary. My job is very stressful so this was a great chance to relax, read and knit. We loved the deer at our window. Thank you for having a place like this. We will be back next year.
Jane, Thank you for sharing your amazing environment. This was an excellent solitary getaway- the perfect blend of business- planning, relaxation and great exercise. You and John have created a super hiking haven here. I will be back soon. Happy Trails.
Dear Jane and John... It's our 5th trip back (3rd time at the Turtleshell) and as always it's a little slice of heaven on earth here. It doesn't matter which season we come here... each one is beautiful and it allows us to re-charge and reconnect and enjoy the simple pleasures in life. We are so happy to have found this special place of yours. See you soon.
Dear Jane and John, Spending the weekend here was the perfect way to spend our second anniversary. It was peaceful and cozy and romantic. Thank you so much.
Well, as before we have been more than pleased with our stay here. First, we were in the Lehman House and now the Turtleshell. Slowly but surely we'll make it to every property on the Tree Farm. Thank you so much for a wonderful getaway for Valentine's weekend. Our last chance to relax before our baby is born in six weeks. We look forward to bringing her here in the coming years. Family memories are easily created in these surroundings. Thank you.
Jane and John- our first hike to Ned's Nest and we saw and bald eagle; 2nd hike to the cemetery and saw 3 bald eagles. Saw deer and wild turkeys. Thanks for some peace and quiet and keeping this land as you do. Hope to back soon.
Dear Jane and John, Thank you for a perfect "get away" vacation. The Turtleshell is a truly relaxing treat. The hiking was great and late night drinks on the bridge with just the moon, stars and sound of the creek made for a special night. We look forward to visiting again and sharing with friends.
