Rachel and Mark
We had a wonderful time with you folks last month. Thank you so much for your warm hospitality. We love you guys! Rachel - Could I have that GREAT soup recipe. It had ground meat, beans, corn, ??? Kept us warm on a cold day in the boat! I'd love to have it.

Hi, Rachel - We all had such a great time. Here are the 2 fish I caught with Carl! We want to be booked the same week as last year.
Thanks - Millie

Hey Rachel,
I just want you to know that you made our trip so spectacular!! I haven't stopped talking about your cooking! I wanted to drop you a note to let you know that kristen and i have been home for a month now, and we still talk about montana every day- to everyone. I cannot believe what a great time we had, and it is all because of you guys. You are such great people, and I feel blessed to have had the experience that we did. A lot of things could have gone very wrong...but they didn't. We were safe, and had one of the absolute best times of our life..We are already planning next year!!
I wanted to personally thank you for your hospitality. You made us feel very at home.
much love from kansas city

From Carole and Jeff K.
We’ve stayed with Mark and Rachel three times so far. We first heard of Rachel through a guide, who told us she is the “best cook on the river.” Rachel’s hospitality and cooking are superb. Her menus are varied and creative, and she is very accommodating for special diets. The Leaning Tree Lodge is charming, with the largest rooms we’ve seen in Ft. Smith, and always immaculately clean and very comfortable. It feels as though we are staying in a private home, but one that comes with our own gourmet chef. We have been so pleased with every visit.
