I bought a Groupon-type promotion for this because it's only about an hour from our house. Included was an overnight stay, 2 30 minute massages, a cracker and cheese plate, wine tasting, and tour of the winery. The property is huge with a hunt club, a lodge, a winery, 6 estate rooms, lakes, an amphitheater for weekend concerts, acres of grape vines, and a shooting range. We stayed in an estate room which was not connected to the other buildings. The room was ample size, nice shower, refrigerator, coffee maker, large screen TV - comfortable. The cheese and cracker platter was very generous with 3 different cheeses. Breakfast was continental - oatmeal and cereal packages, toast, bagel, donuts and muffins, made to order waffles, juice, coffee, milk. There is a huge outdoor deck for breakfast, and it's a nice time to visit with other people who have spent the night.
The entire staff is very friendly and helpful. More signs are needed since this property is off the beaten track - there are a few different ways to get there, but there are no signs to direct you. Also, once you arrive, the lodge where you check in needs to be better identified.
The massage was wonderful, and a perfect way to be more relaxed and get rid of tension.
We enjoyed our overnight stay, and plan to go back for more in the future!
