This is definitely not your typical B&B. We stayed 2 nights and I must admit I felt a pang of sadness as we drove out of the gate - something I have felt only rarely and only after leaving the most exquisite of accommodations. This purpose built B&B gives you the charm of a B&B and the privacy of a hotel. Diane and Jim couldn't be better hosts and Diane is an excellent cook. They have mastered the knack of being available when you need them but otherwise disappearing. I don't think I have ever slept in such a comfortable bed, even in the highest end hotels. Breakfasts were healthy and delicious (a rare combination). I am a tea drinker and the selection of first rate teas was the best anywhere. We had a wonderful (complementary) wine and cheese with Diane and Jim and one other couple who were staying there on a very pleasant sunny patio looking out over their million dollar view. We also enjoyed some superb wine tastings in the area and met some of the owners and wine makers - a real bonus. Even in the 3 days we were in the area, we felt like we were getting to know the locals and were sorry to leave. One of the winemakers is a cyclist like my husband and invited him to come back and join him for a ride. Did I mention the 2 excellent dinners we enjoyed at local restaurants? I can't recommend this B&B and the experience you enjoy using it as a jumping off point enough. A memorable and thoroughly enjoyable experience.
