Hospitality and Special Services: The owners of the Windham Country House, Michael and Mary, live on the premises in a separate unit. Although only present when you request, they are ready to assist you. They will offer advise on things to do and see, give you directions, provide an egg or a cup of sugar or whatever you might have forgotten, and in other ways ensure that your stay is a delightful one.

Typcial Guest Comment: 'Your home was perfect for us! The downstairs was so conducive to everyone enjoying each other whether they were in the kitchen, dining room or living area, because it is so open and airy. The bedrooms were comfortable, roomy, and tastefully furnished.... It was so nice having the two of you on-site as you made sure that everything we needed was always available, from answering questions about places to go to putting sand on the driveway to ensure we got our cars out in the snow. One of the other things we loved about your home was that it was somewhat remote, away from traffic and noise, and the hubbub of everyday life.' -- Dr. David Archibald, Langhorne, PA
