Many thanks to Julie Castleman and the staff at Mountain Memories, Thorpewood and all of and vendors for an incredible experience. I’ve heard from many, many people as to how much they enjoyed themselves and to the beauty and the highly appointed features of the pavilion, lodge, patio with lights and, especially the caldron(!) where many people were able to make s’mores.

You went beyond our expectations with carting my son Mike’s family to Ole Mink Farm. That in itself reassured me of the care and dedication you have for your clients and guests, which was never in doubt, but placed an explanation point on the word ‘service’.

Lastly, seeing you take many pictures and a video of my Chris singing was another example of you enjoying what you do! –  Mother of bride, September, 2023
