You were asked: What is the funniest moment you've ever shared with
“One couple was here for the weekend celebrating a special
occasion; they were delightful. In the morning, the gentleman, a
big burly guy who looked like Mister Clean, came downstairs to
get coffee and chat for a bit.
“He thanked me profusely for the wonderful gesture. I couldn't
think of what I had done. He told me he took his shower and got
ready for bed, and when he turned the covers down to the bed, he
found the sheet covered with rose petals. It just made his day.
“I thanked him and told him it was his partner he should be
thanking. I still smile every time I think of him.
“Another couple stayed in the master suite. When they checked
in, I noticed the man looked like someone right out of the Old
West. Big, beard, cowboy boots...soft spoken. He was an early
riser and was in my kitchen the next morning drinking coffee and
talking about family. He said to me, ‘Promise me you won't tell
anyone, especially my wife.’ I'm thinking, ‘Oh dear,’ but being
of curious nature, I promised. He told me he loved the linens on
the master suite bed; he said he rolled over and the lace from
the sheets felt just wonderful on his face. I couldn't help
myself but laughed and laughed.
“Such joy from people you encounter for such a short time.” –
Lonesome Dove B&B, Lisbon, CT
“When a regular guest came back and stayed for a few days, I was
calling him Jeff and introducing him to everyone as Jeff. When
it was time for him to check out and he gave me his credit card,
I read his name and it was Justin. I burst out laughing and
apologized and everyone starting laughing. My husband and other
guests said that twice he tried to correct me but I didn't hear
him. He thought it was very funny. He said, ‘Apparently I will
answer to anything.’” – Diane & Jim Sokolowski,
