This historic home is now run by a lovely couple as a Bed and Breakfast. Though they've only have ran the home as a B&B for 5 years, they state they've owned it for 20 years and you can see the love and work that they have put into the home. The home has been redone to resemble a typical Victorian home with most of the work being completed by the owners over the years. If you're interested in the history of the home, the owners can give it along with all the thing they have done to restore it. The B&B only has two rooms but both are huge with large private baths. The owners also live on the premise in a connected portion of the home. The rooms are furnished with beautiful old furniture. However, don't go expecting to sit down and watching your favorite TV show. Neither room has a television and if they did, you would be wasting your time in the area. The home is only a few miles from several major vineyards in the area and you can spend the whole day and evening at the various vineyards. However if you spend the whole day, then you probably will want to get a private driver. The quiet little town also looked like it would have been fun to walk through but we were short on time and couldn't see it.
The couple (Jim and Georgia) that owned it were very delightful and were happy to share any information about the area and make recommendations. The breakfast that was served was delicious and was served in the formal dining room. By the time you are finished, you will be about ready to pop. They also left little snacks all around the home. It was a dieter's nightmare, luckily I wasn't planning on dieting for this trip.
If you're in the area looking for a B&B, then I would highly recommend visiting Winans House. Between the beautiful home, comfortable room and bed, wonderful owners, fantastic breakfast, and perfect location to the vineyards, you won't go wrong!
