We had the pleasure of a two night stay at the historic Greenhill Lodge in early February 2014. It was magnificent! John and Christine are wonderful hosts. The lodge is in the countryside very close to the wineries that we toured during the day. Highlights for us included evening cocktails fireside, sumptuous breakfast, sweet treats in our room, sleeping on... More

Just driving up to the Lodge is quite an experience - hidden from view until you turn up the drive, yet it dominates the surrounding countryside. We were told about it's history and given a tour of the features from... More
