If anyone has any information about the Hootens, I would love to know what happened to them and why they left Rancho del Monte...I, too, have drawn a complete blank!

It would be interesting to do a book about the setting and characters of the book "Guestward, Ho!", so delightfully written by Patrick Dennis. His book ended on an up-note, yet the history of Rancho del Monte eventually declined until abandoned by the Hootons. It's now under new ownership and has been refurbished and re-opened, but some of us would be curious to know the further history and decline under the Hootons, what happened to them, what happened to the Vigils, etc. I've tried to follow up on-line but have drawn a blank. It would make an interesting book.
