Guest comments
We had a great time and really enjoyed Niki and Pete. I'd even say they were the best crew we have had so far. We felt welcomed from the minute we stepped on board and they served us good food all week. I especially liked the grilled meats and the fresh baking - and Leigh Anne, my wife, got a great selection of vegetarian dishes all week. I'd recommend Niki and Pete to anyone! Kaveh R.
