Just came back after a 2 night stay and here are my thoughts: • The owner, Johannes, is a pleasant host. He is very conscientious and task-oriented in the kitchen preparing meals. We went for an early dinner and it was just the three of us (my boyfriend, me and Johannes). He personally waited on us for dinner and while... More

Nice big room with very comfortable bed. Furnishings and linens are getting a little old and faded but generally comfortable. Nice big fireplace and comfy sofa. Disappointing pool - very small, cold and not cleaned off. Shame as the setting looked inviting.There is a room with a jacuzzi that looked fine but didn't have chance to try. What was most... More

We had a very relaxing time. It is quiet and peaceful with beautiful gardens. I would recommend it for a couples stay. There is the town of Bodega and Bodega Bay only minutes away. They have a free breakfast and a quaint restaurant on premises. We enjoyed the wine tasting and talking with the owner. They also have a spa!

My husband and I bought two nights through luxurylink.com for ~1K for our anniversary in May 2015. We left disappointed and hope this will save someone else from wasting their money.

Meg, Thank you for your comments. I would never wish for a guest to leave dissatisfied, especially when visiting to celebrate such a special occasion. It’s for this reason you were upgraded to the Honeymoon Suite at no additional charge. I’m pleased to inform you that the dinner beverages served were not tap water, but Acqua Panna, which is a...

We enjoyed our stay very much. Johannes was a wonderful host. We had very personalized service. It felt like a big bed & breakfast with just us as the guests, like our own private hotel. We had a huge spread of food for breakfast. We had appetizers and champagne in our room when we arrived. Dinner service was great and... More

The owner, who does everything and does it very well, is always present to welcome the guests, plan the meals, and even serve a glass of wine for a late arriving guest. The location is remote, but that is a plus, as there are few opportunities for distractions. The grounds are beautiful, the food is outstanding and the rooms are... More

This is a beautiful inn with the feel of a European country estate. The grounds are really beautiful and well-kept with nice touches and spots to sit and enjoy; very peaceful. Our room was very clean and comfortable. A couple of small things could have been updated ~ the faucet on the spa tub needed a small fix; and baseboards... More

We had a great time and had a fun conversation with the owner/manager during wine tasting. The room was comfortable and had all that we would need or want.

The owner wears many hats which is very commendable, but he needs to work on his people skills. He was EXTREMELY RUDE to us when we checked it and at the wine tasting he insulted my friends intelligence (literally). I spoke with many other guests and they had the same experience. The grounds are beautiful, but we will never return... More

We apologize your overall experience wasn’t up to par. We feel there may have been some confusion regarding a simple misunderstanding due to language barriers, and we are very sorry if anything that was said came off as rude. We are very happy to hear you enjoyed the grounds. Thank you for your feedback. More

I noticed a trend throughout the course of the previous reviews; a lack of courtesy on the part of the owner/manager. I cannot speak to those experiences; I can only speak to my own, but mine could not have been any more different. I too ordered a vacation through Groupon and extended it through the end of the week.
