Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!"

Viroqua Heritage Inn B&B's
“You have been the most effective inn website in getting guests to contact us. As a three-room B&B we have to be selective in choosing the directories we go with, but B&Bs would be crazy not to list with a
couple of good online guides. Consistently iLoveInns.com is the best source of our bookings! Most importantly, iLoveInns/American Historic Inns has a good, long-standing reputation and guests trust what you say online and in your books. People put a lot of value in the confidence they have in staying at iLoveInns member inns.” Roger, innkeeper at
Four Square Plantation

It is simply brilliant. Keep up the great work. Happy Holidays." Tammy & Dave Doriot-DeHaven Valley Inn
