“We would like to commend [SW1] on your excellent service. The whole experience was much much more than we could have ever expected. The service was professional and friendly and worthy of the 5 stars you have.” – Samantha and Barend, guests from FranceLodge this fact: A lodge in Pennsylvania had to repaint their foyer mural when children started to have nightmares about the vampire bat perched on an evil troll’s shoulder. No one quite knows what prompted them to paint that in the first place.
