Testimonial from Logan’s Hideaway B&B
“Since we signed up with you we have used the site to let our reserved guests know where we are and how to get here. When we confirm guest reservations we include a link to the website and tell them how to find us. This has helped us immensely because before mapofpender.com we did not have a website to refer people to that was accurate or easy to use. We had tried Google maps but there were many errors on that map so we preferred not to use it. I am so glad to see this website developing.” -Diane Logan
