If you could give one piece of advice to someone interested in starting or running a business, what would you say? Make sure you really have a passion for hosting people and are ready for all the business entails including being "on call" round the clock to answer questions, meet needs and go the extra mile.
Anything else you'd like to share? We have been in business 25 years and love to see kids holding baby bunnies, reading in the children's library in the llama corral, walking in the bluebonnets by the Chapel and just enjoying nature. It feeds the soul!
