This is the second Christmas I have spent with Janna, Andre + girls in their lovely home. It is Ean's first stay here - and his first experience of snow. So we have had a wonderful white Christmas + lots of fine food + fun with our tour group. Your Siberian hospitality is superb. Thank you. May be there will be a third stay - in spring.

Is there anything more perfect? Log cabin, the lickety-split of burning pine, an ideal snow-dusted picture frame for seeing Baikal phantoms. Snow mobiles excellent exercise for the little James Bond in us all! The hospitality is unparalleled.
We were privileged to see the ice melting. An ordinary event for local people but such a special happening for the rest of the world. Thank you all for making our stay so happy. We look forward to returning to the Pearl of Russia - Baikal. And staying with you in your home.

The two of you have been fourth time we have encountered angels in Russia. It only there were more kind and warm-hearted people like you in the world. You always have a home in California. Until we meet again...

We are impressed by your warmful hospitality and delicious meal in addition to that healthful Baikal. We wish to be here again with my students. And we do hope health and great success in your life.

Thank your for providing such a perfect place to read Dostoevsky (good thing, perhaps, his Siberian sojourn was less pleasant, or we may not have the grand darkness of his novels). It would be lovely to have another week here to do nothing but dream of coming back soon. This has here a perfect place to end a month in Russia, the most lavish + fascinating place on earth.
We had a wonderful evening and your hospitality and food was delightful and spectacular view from your property.

I enjoyed staying at the village. It made my stay more comfortable in Siberia. The woodwork is magnificent.
