We chose this for the second leg of our 12th anniversary celebration.
The property is charmimg and well-maintained. There was a distinctly Southern plantation feel to the property - at least to us.
We were thrilled with the old-fashioned functioning fireplace! The nice gentleman who showed us to our cottage king suite (I'm so sorry I cannot recall his name) was kind enough to bring us the firewood already bundled in a cute burlap satchel tied with twine (a little card with instructions was attached to the twine - place the entire bag in the fireplace and light the corners of the bag).
After settling into the room, I went to the dining room for some tea (there was a readily available and wide variety to choose from), fresh baked chocolate chip cookies (which were chewy and delicious) and fruit (which was readily available) and water (the service staff and front desk were so accommodating with providing bottled spring water to me many times throughout our stay! Thanks so much for that!!!). Then Kimberly was kind enough to make dinner reservations for us at Bistro Jeanty in Yountville but only after being conscientious and giving me at least 6 other restaurant options and available reservation times!
The evening wine and cheese was surprisingly nice as the wine was actually presented by a local vintner from a local winery (Carneros region).
Another notable mention goes to the ultra-plush Frette towels!!! Absolutely heavenly!!!
The microwave in the room came in very handy for leftovers from our dinner the next day!
The property is on the expensive side ($299/night during the 3rd week of April 2013) so seek out special deals they might be offering online!)
