“Modern, Charming, Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

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!

Room Tip: We stayed at Vineyard West which had it's own bathroom and view of the vineyards. I believe othe...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

We stayed at Shinn for our pre-wedding and wedding night. The winery is undoubtedly gorgeous! We didn't have any time to taste any wine this trip, but have in the past and it is great. The rooms are very contemporary, so we liked the style and decor of the rooms. We staying in the Vineyard room and it was quiet and the bed was comfy. LOVED the toiletry brand they provided. There were a few negatives...We met the owner Barbara and she was pleasant, but not overly friendly. The only experience we had with David was when we whistled for his dog to come with him as we were obviously not supposed to be playing with him. Because it was harvest time, we suspect that we did not get the experience of David cooking the breakfast. We heard his cooking is phenomenal, but never saw him in the kitchen and the 2 meals were fairly simple. We had scrambled eggs and duck hash (potatoes and chunks of duck) and a frittata the next am. My favorite two items were the scones and the small smoothies. Overall a really nice place to stay, but for the price I was a bit disappointed. Also, mentioned several times when called that this was our wedding and not one person said congratulations, etc. Would have gone a long way to have gotten a little card or something from the innkeepers...Isn't the personal touch one of the reasons you stay in a bed and breakfast?

We spent four nights at Shinn Estate Farmhouse in September, and it was one of the best vacations we've had. The first-floor room was perfect. The hot breakfast each day was indulgent without being overwhelming, and gave us a chance to mix and mingle with other guests. Barbara, one of the owners, was a welcoming presence most mornings - despite the fact that harvest season was underway in the vineyard. The staff in the tasting room was really helpful, in terms of explaining the Shinn wines and offering tips about other wineries, restaurants and attractions in the area. Add perfect weather for bike riding, walking and exploring and we would go back to the North Fork - and Shinn Estate in a heartbeat.

We stayed a weekend oin August. We had a beautifully appointed room (there are 4). Overlooking the vineyard. It was restful and quiet. Just what we wanted. The gripe was that they need to turn on the AC before the guest arrives. It was in the 90's that weekend. The best surprise was breakfast. We ate with the other 6 guests. It was beyond compare. Truly extraordinary.

My husband and I just returned from a 2 night stay at the Shinn Estate Farmhouse. We had a much needed relaxing stay. The owners, Barbara & David, are very nice and made us feel very comfortable. The breakfast was fantastic! And the views, oh my! This is our 2nd stay at the farmhouse and we will definitely be back!

Everything that you would hope to expect when staying at a farmhouse in the vineyard. Barbara and David are very accommodating hosts, but yet give you your own space. The breakfasts are amazing........fresh local ingredients, brilliantly prepared. If you are looking for a romantic getaway in the North Fork area, this is a must!!!

We came here for a couple of days after our wedding. The Shinn's are great hosts and the breakfast was amazing! Their wine was fantastic also!
