By the time we arrived at Shinn Estate we had already spent a whirlwind 13 days in Manhattan and Washington DC (and had drived from JFK!) so by the time we arrived we were ready to relax and slow down. We found the right place.
From the moment you walk in the farmhouse feels friendly and inviting.
We stayed in the treehouse room with a great view of the chickens - which do provide for hours of amusement!
David's breakfasts were absolutely divine, and meant we never needed lunch! Barbara was really friendly and kind, always offering up interesting suggestions for places to see. Barbara very helpfully organised us onto a winery tour the next day, which was wonderful. She is also a really interesting person to talk to if you're interested in the vineyard and their practices. We really appreciated the time she took to take us on a tour of the vineyard, what they have done and created at Shinn is very special indeed.
There is nothing I could fault with Shinn Estate, the room was lovely and always immaculately serviced, and surprisingly considering it is a farmhouse the rooms were warm and cozy - which considering the -2 degree celcius weather was needed!
It is a farmhouse and there are only 4 rooms, so when people are coming and going there is some noise, but we found everyone we met at Shinn Estate were friendly and considerate. If you're not keen on having to talk to strangers over wine and cheese in the evening or breakfast in the morning then perhaps its not the place for you, but we actually really enjoyed meeting new people and we got some good tips off the other guests on places to see as well.
We absolutely loved our stay at Shinn Estate and we look forward to coming back! Hopefully soon!
