What an amazing, comfortable, beautiful, warm and inviting home Mary Jo and Craig were willing to share with us. We had an amazing space with everything a traveler could ever want or need, to be comfortable away from home. Also Mary Jo is so caring, considerate and concerned to make sure you have everything you could possibly need, she doesn't miss a single detail to make your stay an increditable experience. From fresh flowers in your bedroom or living space, to chocolates and candy in the bedrooms and a mini fridge stocked with snacks and breakfast items, Mary Jo is so thoughtful in taking care of her guests. She also makes great suggestions for local attractions and restaurants to try and is so willing to be helpful with anything you might need during your Rochester stay. For any future trips to the Mayo and Rochester, I plan on always checking with Mary Jo and seeing if it will be possible to stay at Mary Jo's and Craig's home again. Both my dad and I look forward to future visits with them.
