Michael was quick in his communication and sent us wonderful photos of our Quinn throughout his stay to let us know that he was not only safe but having a terrific time. Quinn enjoyed his time and went for nice long walks twice a day and hung out while Michael gardened. We were very impressed and Quinn tells us he wants to go back and for us not to look any further.
