Why the name SPONGIE ACRES?

The story behind the name is a simple one. It’s actually a nickname or term of endearment, Clint (innkeeper) had for Juannie (innkeeper’s wife) ever since they met back in the late 70’s. So no great story! Just a silly nickname that has stayed with them for thirty- six years! So if you were wondering , as many have, if they are situated in swampy ground or in a bog! The answer is NO. So read all about them on the website and come and visit. You can even call Juannie, Spongie if you like. Either way, they would love to see you and promise to make sure your visit is an enjoyable one so that you too can share the story of SPONGIE ACRES. See Ya’ll soon!
