Shinn Estate was the perfect little get away for our first anniversary together! Pricey but worth it!
GROUNDS: Absolutley beautiful. They allow you to walk through the vineyards and learn all about their vines even though it was harvest time. It is quiet, romantic and serene.
ROOMS:I have never seen a more perfect combination of modern and "outdoorsy". Each room is designed to have a great view, super clean and cozy. Everything they provide is organic or enviornmentally friendly which is always a nice plus. The pictures online are a true depiction of the reality.
STAFF: Despite what some reviewers have mentioned, we found Barbara to be extremley pleasant. Some people might mistake her quietness for being stand off-ish, but in my opinion she was extremly accodating and friendly. I enjoyed watching her help the staff harvest the grapes and run multiple businesses at the same time. The vineyard staff was very nice and accomodating as well.
FOOD: What a gourmet breakfast! We were pleasantly surprised at the kitchen set up. Again modern and very inviting. We had smoothies, scones, risotto with homemade bacon and duck eggs. My husband and I were able to have coffee on the porch even before breakfast. For guests who wake up early, homeade granola and such were available. You are welcomed to the inn with wine and cheese too!
Well, well done!
