“First, she surprised me with a wonderful dinner in Rochester and then blindfolded me to surprise me with an evening at the Ellwanger Estate bed-and-breakfast. She drove around the inner lip a few times, so I thought we weren't in the city anymore. She had come ahead and placed a beautiful Birchwood box on the mantelpiece. When we arrive, Rosemary greeted me by name and said congratulations! I thought it was for the completion of my internship! We went up to the room and there was an engagement ring in the box on the mantle. Obviously I said yes! We took a bottle of wine out to the covered porch and watch the speckled phone and her mother grays and play in the lawn, just next to the hidden straight. This has been the most magical night of my life! We can't wait to return for anniversary.”

“We didn't want to leave… The house, the warm hug it gives you when we came in… Hard to say goodbye. Everything was wonderful! Rosemary did an exceptional table for breakfast. We will be back. Katie and Steve, November 2013”
