We've had tips of all denominations, from $5 to $50 (and the big ones always seem to come from the unlikeliest guests). We've had countless cards, bottles of wine and even flowers on three occasions. My favorite card was one that a guest made from a photograph of the ceiling artwork in the dining room. Really personal and lovely!
Boxes of chocolates, money, nice notes. One artist guest left a small watercolor drawing of our stone wall with the fall foliage in the background. We loved it so much we asked him to paint our house and used it for Christmas cards.
Two sisters were doing a meet in the middle. It was off-season and the booking sister told me money WAS an object so she booked one of the shared bath guestrooms for them. I decided to give them both rooms for the price. When they left, there was a shopping bag in one room with a card with my name on it and a card in the other room. Both were lovely cards thanking me for making their visit so enjoyable - they have totally different sleep patterns and separate rooms made it a joy. In the bag was one of those non-sew throws that they had spent their last evening together making for me. I treasure it.
One guest left a hand knit blanket for my little baby boy. She left a beautiful note saying that it was tradition in her family for her mom to make every new baby a blanket and how happy her mom would be for a precious little baby in Hawaii to have one of her blankets. Her mom passed about 3 months before she came for her visit.
One was an elopement wedding but they broke a fake antique dish that I bought at a yard sale.Never talked to me just left $100.00. I guess they thought it was real. The second $100.00 was left by a couple that got a gift certificate from an in law in Calif. but really had a great time here for four days.
