Was looking for a last minute place to stay in the Grafton area and found this place. Easy check in and check out. The house was clean and ready early for us when we arrived. Will stay here again on future trips!

We rented one of the stone cottages for a bachelorette party and were so happy. It was very spacious and clean. This cottage held 8 comfortably and even had enough towels for all of us. You cannot beat the location, everything is in walking distance and the Grafton Winery is only a few steps away. There are so many quaint... More

This is my second time staying in the Cardinal House at Jeni J's. The experience has been top notch both time. Clean & well kept, it was even decorated not only in a Cardinals theme, but with a Christmas tree and all the other trimmings of the holiday. It's the perfect house for three couples to share. Plus it's right... More

We stayed in the Wharf cottage. King size bed is very comfortable. Fully stocked kitchen. Very clean. Centrally located. Nancy, the owner, is very nice. We stayed on a Tuesday night & it was very quiet. It does sit next to a pizza restaurant/bar but it wasn't open that night. I'm not sure how quiet it would have been had... More

As part of the large party that invaded Jeni J's at the end of January I wanted to say that we had a wonderful time. The cottages were great-close to lots of fun things to do but still private. I was lucky enough to stay in one of the cottages with a whirpool tub-greatly appreciated Sunday morning!! Will be bothering... More

We had a group of 14, seven couples, and rented the whole place. It was exceptional. All the cottages are very nicely decorated, warm and inviting. We loved the location as we walked to dinner at Mississippi Half Step despite the cold winter night and had some fun at both the Piasa Pub and Grill and the Crazy Beaver, which... More

It is right on Main Street with wineries and little shops and restaurants with in walking distance. I talked with Nancy when I booked and she was very friendly and helpful. It is... More

We've stayed on all of the cottages. There are one, two and three bedrooms. They are all outstanding. The one and two bedroom have a kitchen sink and fridge while the 3 bedroom has a full kitchen. Two bedroom has a spa tub. They're right on main street. Easy to walk to lots of entertainment. The rooms are always immaculate... More

Rooms are very clean and well appointed. We stayed in the wharf cottage. The only concern for some may be the proximity of the wharf cottage to Castaways bar which is literally 10 feet from the back door of the cottage. I personally enjoyed the proximity as we closed it down anyhow, great bar atmosphere and good food. Early to... More

I was coming back from a meeting late on evening. I called Jeni J and asked if anything was avaliable and let them know my arrival would be after 10:00. The guest house was avaliable however no one would be around to check me in. They checked me in over the phone and hid the key so I could let... More
