Rave Reviews

"The ornaments of the house are the friends who frequent it."
                                                           --- Ralph Waldo Emerson



Throughout the eighteen years that Bill and I have owned Wickwood we’ve been lucky to have met so many wonderful people who have enriched our lives!!!! We cherish the conversations, laughter, and fun that The Inn has brought to us. Great memories!!! Recently we re-read some of  the cards, letters and comments from guests over the years. We thought we’d share a smattering of them with you. We want everyone to enjoy Wickwood as much as we do!!!
